Leading narrow web press manufacturer, Mark Andy, is delighted to confirm its participation at Labelexpo Europe 2022 in Brussels. Mark Andy will be available at Stand 4C45. At its booth, it will highlight the company’s digital and flexo hybrid technology that provides label converters with a wide variety of fast and efficient production solutions from pre-press workflow to management systems and from consumables and supplies to converting finishing options.

On working demonstration in Brussels will be two Mark Andy digital hybrid presses – Digital Series HD and the manufacturer’s latest launch Digital Series iQ, powered by Domino, both of which will be available for visitors to inspect close-up during the entire event.

While Digital Series HD and Digital Series iQ are suited for different needs, both feature seamless integration with a complete set of end-to-end functionalities to help businesses grow. Both are inkjet digital hybrid presses capable of printing with extended color gamut, 6-color process, and opaque white at true production speeds. In addition, both machines are designed with fast-change flexo features for top coating, lamination, foil stamping, and specialty color printing and product decoration. Finishing attributes include Mark Andy’s high-speed semi-rotary diecutting.

“The Digital Series HD and the Digital Series iQ utilize well-proven technology to ensure a reliable and profitable solution for our customers,” said Tom Cavalco, managing director, Mark Andy Europe. “Since its launch last year in the Americas, Digital Series iQ has been a fast seller, easily integrated by label converters. We are excited to showcase the machine for the first time in Europe on our booth at Labelexpo and are looking forward to seeing friends old and new at this year’s event,” he added.

The DSHD is based on Mark Andy’s well-proven Performance Series P7 full-servo platform. It is available in 330 millimeters (13″) and 430 millimeters (17″) web widths and prints with a resolution that exceeds high-definition flexo at speeds up to 73 meters a minute (240 ft/min). It is the ideal choice for top-quality printing across a range of substrates with the added benefit of inline product decoration and conversion.

The new DSiQ is a fully integrated inkjet press built on a proven Mark Andy flexo platform. Powered by a robust Domino N610i UV inkjet module, it links digital brainpower with Mark Andy’s converting expertise and combines all the web handling, flexo printing, product decoration, and converting capability of the Mark Andy Evolution Series platform with the market-proven Domino N600 digital print engine technology.   

Commenting for the show organizer, Labelexpo managing director Lisa Milburn stated- “We are delighted to welcome Mark Andy to Labelexpo Europe 2022. It is very exciting news for our visitors that they will be using the show for the European launch of the new Digital Series IQ platform powered by Domino, alongside the latest version of their Digital Series HD press.”

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
