MPS has introduced its new E-Sleeve technology at Labelexpo Brussels at its Stand 11C20, with key features presented in live demonstrations on the EF SYMJET hybrid press.
Designed as a superior alternative to traditional sleeves that use compressible material, the new MPS E-Sleeve enables printers to generate predictable results at increased speeds, with guaranteed quality tolerances and more reliable production cost calculations.
“Flexographic printing sleeves play a critical role in the overall flexo printing process, as they have a major influence on print efficiency and quality,” said Bert van den Brink, MPS co-founder. “We saw the need to change from sleeves that use an aero-mounting principle with a compressible inner core, to design with precise concentricity across the entire plate for optimum print results. It’s a game-changer for the printing industry!”
Key features of the MPS E-Sleeve include optimum pressure settings to avoid unnecessary bouncing, precise concentric runout properties, constant parallelism for ideal register across the entire print length and increased dimensional accuracy for optimum register between all colors and die stations. With a reduced weight, MPS E-Sleeves provide easier and faster job changeovers and lower lifetime tooling costs through improved durability.
The company has also launched a wider version (17 inch/430 millimeter) hybrid MPS EF SYMJET press integrated with the new Domino N617i unit. The press is equipped with five flexo stations, digital cold foil, a Kurz cold foil unit for single images and optical effects, lamination and die-cutting.
The main theme on the company’s Stand 11C20 at Labelexpo is ‘Beyond the Machine,’ where visitors will learn more about the company and its strengths in four key processes – in connectivity, applications, productivity, and service.
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.
