Are you ready for the next big step in printing productivity?

Dutch printing press manufacturer MPS Systems will launch at Labelexpo Europe 2017 an innovation called ‘talk to me’ aimed at promoting interaction between MPS printing presses and Management Information Systems (MIS). The new MPS connectivity technology allows for real-time data exchange and control at any given moment.

The ‘talk to me’ concept is a protocol for exchanging data between Management Information Systems and MPS printing presses, to supply real-time information required for companies to be truly productive and remain competitive. In addition to the regular MIS interface, press operators can be given access to extended ‘anytime, anywhere’ functionality via the specially developed ‘talk to me’ app, which can be installed on any Android or iOS smartphone or tablet.

“The best way to achieve maximum printing productivity is to ensure that operators have the tools and freedom to get the most out of their machines. With ‘talk to me’ we offer just that. I am confident that through constant communication with their printing presses, operators will optimize their performance and, in the process, enjoy increased job satisfaction,” Bert van den Brink, co-founder and technical director at MPS, explains.

Data to be exchanged from the MIS to press includes the customer name, press run, color sequence, tooling, material type and thickness, printing plate code and planning (job queue). Data from the press to MIS consists of the operator, printing speed, meters/yards printed (order status), waste produced (waste sheets), set-up and printing time.

At Labelexpo Europe, MPS will also display a second fully equipped EF press at the Automation Arena (Hall 11), organized by Tarsus. The Automation Arena will include two automated press lines for digital and conventional label production, from job creation through to prepress, printing, finishing and invoicing.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
