Mark Andy P4 to be shown at Brussels with Pro LED UV curing

New Performance series press can be configured for legacy tooling

The Mark Andy Performance Series P4 has a redesigned print head but retains the wide open access unique to the Performance Series product line

Mark Andy, has added a new narrow web flexo press to its existing PerformanceSeriesP3,P5 andP7 presses. The newP4 is claimed to be an economical model offering features that bring the innovation award-winning benefits of the Performance Series press platform to a broader range of mid-sized label printers and converters. This model was designed with economy and automation in mind, and is well positioned to replace existing mechanical presses still being used today, allowing printers and converters to remain competitive and modernize their operations by upgrading to a short-path, servo-driven automated press.

Featuring the key Performance Series attributes including load-and-lock inking system and extremely fast setup and change over times on short path presses to improve productivity by as much as 60%, the new P4 is servo-driven, resulting in enhanced automation and precision. At the same time, the P4 is extremely flexible. Converters can configure a P4 with the advanced P Series style plate tooling, or select a configuration which accepts existing or traditional style plate cylinder tooling, promoting use of current tooling inventories and minimizing investment costs. The configuration for legacy tooling which must be done at the time of placing the order can, we believe, accommodate even competitors ’tooling. This latest P Series model also features a rail system, on which moveable inter-station processes like cold foil, lamination, screen and turn bar can be mounted and moved from station to station easily adding flexibility in job capability.

The newP4 includes improved print and registration management for higher productivity with faster set up, changeovers and running speed; broader application and substrate capabilities; and a completely upgradeable, modular design. The new P4 is now available from Mark Andy and will be making its debut at Labelexpo Europe from 29 September to 1 October 2015 in Brussels, Belgium. In Hall 4 Stand C45 visitors will witness firsthand the new features of the P4 running several live demonstrations daily and featuring ProLED UV LED curing. ProLED is a fully integrated UV LED curing system that reduces energy consumption while providing a cleaner, mercury-free printing environment

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
