Miyakoshi will display two technologies at Labelexpo Europe 2019 in Brussels.
The first will be its MLP 13C semi-rotary offset press with servo
driven chilled rollers. The second will be its MJP 13LXV digital inkjet LED
UV label press, in Hall 8, Stand 8B31. Both presses will be shown with several
upgradations as compared to their earlier versions.
The MLP 13C is considered one of the better semi-rotary offset label presses
being produced – considered reliable and efficient for converters supplying to
the short- and mid-run labels and flexible packaging segments. The new model
of this press will be equipped with a highly stable and robust structure to support
intermittent web feeding and accurate registration. The servo-driven chilled
motors enhance the capability of the machine to supply to the flexible packaging
market on substrates as thin as 15 microns.
The latest upgrade takes the machine speed higher to 250 movements per minute.
The speed or productivity (impression count) doesn’t change with the change
in repeat lengths. Apart from this, Miyakoshi also offers a higher speed version of
the MLP-H running at 300 shots a minute corresponding to a speed of 121.9 meters
a minute. With automatic wash-up, advanced cold start and finish function
and a shorter web path, the overall wastage and job changeover time have been
The Miyakoshi MJP – LXV LED-UV inkjet digital press offers a high resolution of
1200 x 1200 dpi. With high quality production and good productivity, it is claimed
to be the fastest in its class with a print speed of 50 meters a minute.
At the previous Labelexpo in Brussels, the company observed that the Indian
market was inclined towards both flexo and digital technologies for labels. This
time, the company aims to generate more awareness towards its offset and digital
products and hopes to convert the increase in interest since the Miyakoshi
semi-rotary offset press was shown at Printpack earlier this year. Since the market
for these machines is limited to India, Provin is targeting to sell just two machines
in India as of now
