Reflex Labels buys second MPS press

November 6, 2012

Production managers say they were so impressed with their first MPS that they ordered a second ahead of schedule.

MPS has announced another press order from UK-based Reflex Labels for its second MPS investment, an EF510 10 color UV flexo press. According to the company, "superior flexibility, reliability and performance" are factors that led to Reflex Labels’ purchasing decision.

The MPS EF510 20-inch flexo packaging press can print a range of substrates from 15 micron BOPP to 450 gsm/m2 of cartonboard, which was proven with Reflex Labels’ existing MPS press. Due to the success of its previous MPS press investment two years ago, an earlier MPS EF model, the management of Reflex Labels decided to order the second MPS press ahead of the originally scheduled expenditure. Their production floor, which includes other label presses, was reorganized to accommodate the next generation MPS press.

In reviewing the contribution to Reflex Labels’ business, based on quality and market results, the company deemed the first MPS press investment very successful. Both production time and set-up waste were reduced significantly, it says. Dave Ewing, Reflex Labels operations manager, states: “The MPS EF press has surpassed all our expectations in flexibility and reliability. The print quality on a wide range of substrates is excellent, and the operators have remarked that it is extremely user-friendly to run.”

Eric Hoendervangers, commercial director of MPS, comments: “On top of the many industry awards received by Reflex Labels, we see this sale as an award for MPS’ smart and sustainable tailored technology in packaging printing. We warmly congratulate Reflex Labels on their second MPS press investment that will undoubtedly bring Reflex Labels new successes.”
