MPS has announced its debut participation alongside its Chinese distributor Jebsen Industrial at Labelexpo Asia 2013, held December 3-6th in Shanghai. Event organizers say that the tenth anniversary and sixth edition of Asia’s biggest label and converting industry event promises to be the largest in its history.
"Show visitors are welcome to visit stand G17 in hall E2 to learn about the recently broadened range of MPS flexo and offset printing presses from the EB, EF and EXL series, available in print widths ranging from 280 to 660 mm," the company says.
Unveiled at Labelexpo 2013, the extended MPS EF multi-substrate flexo press line, now available in three versions: EF, EF-APC and EF-APC Advanced, ranging in cost and level of automation. APC (Automated Print Control) allows pre-programming of print pressure settings and enables the press operator to store and recall repeat jobs. The EF press line is the premium solution for both labels and unsupported film materials for flexible packaging. The EF press from MPS is one of the most productive flexo systems in the industry.
The EXL offset is a full rotary offset combination press for high-speed and high-end label production. "The press has variable sleeves for different repeat lengths," the company says. "With APC on all pressure settings, MPS EXL offset offers the fastest job changeover, highest predictability and repeatable print quality available today in offset combination printing. The EXL packaging press is ideally-suited for wide-web flexible packaging printing, providing an economical alternative. It offers extremely quick change-over time and remarkably little set-up waste guaranteeing optimal printing and converting."
MPS says it views Asia as an important area for future company growth, with China as the key emerging market. MPS Area Sales Manager Erik Blomjous says: “Following the successful introduction of MPS at China Print held in May this year, we are once again teaming up with Jebsen Industrial at Labelexpo Asia to present our innovative flexo and offset printing presses ranging from cost-efficient to fully-automated press capabilities. We look forward to further engaging with label and packaging printers from China and other Asian markets at this industry-leading event.”
