Mark Andy launches Evolution Series

30 September 2019

Mark Andy is highlighting four product releases at Labelexpo Europe, including a new flexo press. Mark Andy has introduced the Evolution Series to its suite of flexographic offerings.

A simple-to-operate platform powered by proven Mark Andy engineering and technology, the Evolution Series provides converters a scalable production solution designed to serve their business needs today while providing adaptability to the needs driving future business growth.

The Evolution Series, demonstrating live at the show, is available in 13” and 17” (330 and 460 mm) web widths with production speeds up to 750 fpm (230 m/m) and is available for immediate order.

Tom Schelmbauer, chief business officer, Mark Andy Flexo, says the Evolution Series is a strategic addition to the company’s flexo solutions by providing full servo technology previously unattainable to this wide of a range of the market. “Full servo flexographic printing is now within reach for all converters,” explains Schelmbauer. "This technology, with the highest possible quality and engineering, has been a longstanding – and noticeably absent – request in the industry. Building on the success of our existing technology, we’re able to bring the Evolution Series to market as a solution for converters that need a label or film press with the capability to grow as their business grows. “

In addition, Mark Andy’s Digital Pro line is making its European debut. This modular entry- to mid-market digital system is running live at the stand– specifically the Digital Pro 3, the advanced inline converting model fitted with semi-rotary diecutting.

The roll-to-roll configuration, Digital Pro 1, is also on display on stand 8A60, extending Mark Andy’s presence to the “Digital Hall” for the first time. Printing at 77 fpm (23.4 m/m), the new product line provides production-level speed for all applications in addition to a low cost to print, giving companies priced out of production systems the opportunity to benefit from digital.

Digital Series HD, a 7-colour UV inkjet press with QCDC-SR, Live VDP and StitchAI, is making its first appearance in Brussels since launching in spring of 2018. Mark Andy’s full-production true hybrid digital inkjet system is now available in 17” (430 mm) web-width, and is being demonstrated four times daily, with special demonstrations highlighting its high-speed shrink sleeve capabilities. 

Representatives from Mark Andy Print Products Europe are on-stand during the show, as well. Mark Andy Print Products, now supporting European converters and customers, offers all essential flexo pressroom consumables, including, plate mounting tape, doctor blades, anilox rolls, splicing tape, pressroom chemistry, and more.
