MPS and Domino will launch a wider version of their hybrid MPS EF SYMJET press at the MPS Stand 11C20 during Labelexpo Brussels. With a width of 17 inch/430 millimeters, the new Domino N617i unit is fully integrated in the established MPS EFA flexo platform.
The new hybrid press will be shown for the first time during Labelexpo. Louise Adcock, global commercial product manager of Domino Digital Printing Solutions said, “The Domino N617i is based on our proven N6-series inkjet product range, but has been designed exclusively for MPS. We are delighted that MPS is showcasing this solution at Labelexpo. The first N617i based MPS EF SYMJET deliveries are being scheduled from January 2020.”
Visitors to Labelexpo can enjoy live demonstrations of the press at the MPS stand. Hans Poortinga, manager of the MPS Technology and Expertise Centre said, “The press will be equipped with five flexo stations, digital cold foil, a Kurz cold foil unit for single images and optical effects, lamination and die-cutting. We will show the most unique and impressive label applications. MPS’ goal is to push the limits of flexo and inkjet printing and converting.”
Domino and MPS first announced their partnership by launching the first hybrid EF SYMJET press at Labelexpo Europe 2015. Philip Easton, director at Domino Digital Printing Solutions added, “From almost the first meeting we have developed an excellent working relationship with MPS. They have high standards but at the same time have been so responsive and easy to work with.”
The MPS EF SYMJET press is now available in 340 millimeter/13” and 430 millimeter/17” widths, and can be equipped with multiple flexo units, lamination and embellishing units, die-cutting and other converting options.
Atze Bosma, chief executive officer of MPS said, “Productivity is one of our focus processes that extends Beyond the Machine. With the new 17 inch width, we are offering our customers higher productivity, more flexibility and the possibility to open new markets and even more options for applications.”
