Atze Bosma, CEO of MPS, states, “Label and flexible packaging printers nowadays face a rapidly changing market with increasing pressure on price and higher demands on quality and flexibility. At the same time, they must cope with different printing techniques, more changeovers, and a growing shortage of experienced operators. Whether printers are using a flexo, offset, or a digital hybrid printing press, they strive for maximum performance and maximum return on investment. This requires expertise, use of unbiased data, real-time data from the actual printing press.”
Bosma continues, "In the label and flexible packaging industry, printers rarely collect unbiased, real-time data from the actual printing press. This information is valuable; many machines run much less than what they can. In practice, we see relatively low printing speeds, high waste levels, and long job changeover times.”
“Our mission is to enable MPS customers to unleash the full potential out of their MPS presses. It is about running robust, reliable, highly qualified and highly automated printing presses ready for 24x7 operations. And: we enable customers to achieve the best performance and maximum return from their MPS machine. Together we look beyond the machine by addressing all aspects involving the printing press.”
‘Grand Prix of Performance’ virtual event on June 10
MPS invites the industry to join their virtual ‘Grand Prix of Performance’ event on June 10. During this event, MPS will reveal their vision along with a new logo, branding and website. To learn more about performance, connectivity, and best practices in press efficiency, attendees can participate in various free seminars.
Part of the event program is the Performance Challenge: a real 8-hour production shift, running the optimal performance in producing real customer label- and packaging jobs using the pit stop strategy.
MPS Marketing Communications Manager Inge Smolders comments, “This challenge will be unlike anything we’ve shown before. We will practice what we preach: a real production floor in our Technology & Expertise Center, running real customer jobs, including full change-over and real-time data checkups. We are excited to share our expertise in connectivity and performance and show what Connect to Grow means to our customers.”
In addition to the performance challenge, event registrants will be able to join free seminars and expert talks, including former international Formula 1 driver and 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, Jan Lammers.
