The new press combination is being displayed for the first time at the event. Louise Adcock, global commercial product manager at Domino Digital Printing Solutions, says, “The Domino N617i is based on our proven N6-series ink jet product range but has been designed exclusively for MPS. We are delighted that MPS is showcasing this solution at Labelexpo. The first N617i based MPS EF SymJet deliveries are being scheduled from January 2020.”
Visitors to Labelexpo can enjoy live demonstrations of the press in the MPS booth 11C20. Hans Poortinga, manager of the MPS Technology & Expertise Center, comments, “The press will be equipped with five flexo stations, digital cold foil, a Kurz cold foil unit for single images and optical effects, lamination and die-cutting. We will show the most unique and impressive label applications. MPS’ goal is to push the limits of flexo and ink jet printing and converting”.
Domino and MPS first introduced their partnership, launching the first hybrid EF SymJet press at Labelexpo Europe 2015.
Philip Easton, director at Domino Digital Printing Solutions, adds, “From almost the first meeting we have developed an excellent working relationship with MPS. They have high standards but at the same time have been so responsive and easy to work with. There are now many MPS EF SymJet global installations benefiting from the most proven and best supported inkjet solution from a globally recognized digital inkjet company combined with a world class conventional press.”
The MPS EF SymJet press is now available in 13”/340 mm and 17”/430mm widths, and can be equipped with multiple flexo units, lamination and embellishing units, diecutting and many more converting options.
Atze Bosma, CEO of MPS, says, “Productivity is one of our focus processes that extends Beyond the Machine. With the new 17” width, we are offering our customers higher productivity, more flexibility and the possibility to open new markets and even more options for applications.”
