On the evening of day one of the show, MAPP and DuPont Advanced Printing hosted a customer appreciation event at booth 319, Mark Andy and Rotoflex’s equipment booth. This event was kickstarted with a live demonstration of the Mark Andy Performance Series P7E featuring DuPont Cyrel Fast Easy EFX plates and a job mix of shrink, EG flexo print, and digital inkjet screen printing through the Digital Plus Screen retrofit solution.
The DuPont Cyrel Fast Easy EFX thermal processed plates are designed for the highest quality printing of halftones, linework and solids at high-speed printing. During this time attendees also received an exclusive sneak peek at the Performance Series P9E, Mark Andy’s newest addition to the Performance Series platform. The P9E addresses market demand for film and flexible packaging, especially those short run in nature, with its 26" web width option.
Following the demonstrations, customers were able to network with their supply experts with the enjoyment of drinks and hors d’oeuvres in the hospitality area.
In just a few short years, MAPP has more than doubled its business to offer converters better technical support on the supplies that keep their presses, and businesses running. All live demonstrations were optimized with supplies ordered through MAPP, including tesa tapes, DuPont plates, Praxair anilox rolls, RotoMetrics plate and magnetic cylinders, doctor blades and more.
Visitors to booth 749 could find the latest Cyrel Fast 2000 TD and DuPont Cyrel Easy flexographic printing plate technology, as well as Mark Andy’s own Dr. Flexo demonstrating the VPM400 plate mounter.
