New inkjet module from Mark Andy

Mark Andy will show a new inline inkjet module, called Digital Plus Screen, for its Performance Series of narrow web flexo presses at the upcoming Label Expo show. This is a single colour UV inkjet module that can be retrofitted to existing presses.

Mark Andy’s Digital Plus Screen option is a single colour inline module for adding white UV ink to a Performance series flexo press.

Mark Andy says that this module is capable of printing fine text, barcodes, sequential numbering and screen-like white ink at up to 73mpm. It’s pitched as a cost-effective alternative to adding a rotary screen unit though it’s worth noting that there are a growing number of single colour retrofit options available.

It’s said to use the same inkjet system developed for Mark Andy’s Digital Series press and can be matched with a high-opacity white ink. The UV ink is cured using a standard mercury vapour lamp. Mark Andy says that its current inks are not low migration or aimed at the food market.

It’s available both as a rail-mounted option on new equipment from Q4 of this year or as a retrofit for the Performance Series from Q1 of 2018. 

It will be shown at Label Expo mounted to a P7 press.
