Mark Andy Indian distributor FIG’s Gourav Roy says that there is generally upward movement in terms of technology in the presses being bought. At least three or four label converters owning Mark Andy 2200 presses are seriously looking at investing in the new P4 press launched at Labelexpo Brussels a couple of months ago because it makes economic sense to be able to use the tooling for their older presses on the higher technology P4. Roy says that interest in both the Performance P5 and P7 presses remains high although the actual installs may come in the next financial year from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017. Interest in more sophisticated finishing equipment such as the bi-directional Rotoflex is higher than ever before.
