Mark Andy announces three new flexo presses

Mark Andy has released three new flexo presses in its Performance Series of narrow web inline presses, including a wider width P9E model aimed at the packaging market.

Kevin Wilken, CEO of Mark Andy.

As well as the P9E, there’s also the P7E and P5E, both of which appear to be enhancements to the existing P7 and P5 series. Thus they gain updated servo architecture allowing for tighter registration and a complete redesign of the converting options.

However, with the P9E Mark Andy is clearly following the trend for wider narrow width presses able to take on some packaging work. Thus this press is available in web widths up to 660mm and can handle film, shrink sleeves, flexible packaging and foil lidding.

The standard configuration includes servo-controlled impression adjustment, independent servo-driven anilox rolls and servo side adjust at print speeds up to 305 metres per minute. The widest 558mm and 660mm versions also feature plate cylinder loading support as well as an anilox and chamber drawer. Naturally there’s a fair amount of automation, including automated registration and impression, the ability to save jobs, eight servo motors per station and a centralized control system.

Jeff Cowan, director of Business Development for Mark Andy, commented: “The Performance Series P9E is an extension of our commitment and solves the pain points narrow web converters are facing plus the growing demand for shrink.”

All three of these new presses come with Mark Andy’s updated ProLED system with air cooling and modular recirculation dryers, both offering sustainability benefits. They use Mark Andy Thread-It technology for easier press webbing and can take Mark Andy’s standard options such as the Quick Change Die Cut Semi Rotary module.

All of these models are available to order now though there’s no word on when deliveries can be expected. Naturally, they will be exhibited at next month’s Label Expo show in Chicago.
