St. Louis, Missouri, USA (July 20, 2009)
The family of leading brands under MAI Holdings (Mark Andy Inc.) will make a big impression on this year's Labelexpo Europe.
New from Mark Andy brand
The Mark Andy line of printing equipment will debut a groundbreaking new in-line printing and converting machine - Mark Andy Performance Series. Designed and engineered specifically for the converter, this new line of machines delivers the fastest changeover times, best-in-class registration technology and superior flexibility in an environmentally friendly solution designed to increase profits and save significant time and money. The new line consists of a series of three models, each featuring the completely new print station design. The Performance Series P7 featuring a 17" (510mm), dual-servo configuration will be on display. The 8-color, full UV with chill drum will be running unsupported film and film pressure sensitive applications. Live demonstrations will be held hourly each day.
"The sophisticated simplicity of the Performance Series line is the beauty of this design," states Jeff Feltz, director of product management, Mark Andy Inc. "We performed a significant amount of global converter research to come up with nine critical design objectives. With this solution each of these objectives has been met and the press is already dazzling many converters."
New from Rotoflex brand
Rotoflex, a world-leader in inspection and finishing equipment, will display some of its top machines including the VLI featuring film inspection and rewinding and the VSI which is ideal for top-of-the-line pressure-sensitive label inspection work. Also on display will be the Rotoflex HSR, making its first appearance under the Rotoflex brand. The new model reflects a horizontal work-flow and compliments the already popular vertical work flows found in the Rotoflex line.
"We are proud to be back at Labelexpo Europe with a stronger and more robust line of equipment to offer the European marketplace. I am personally excited to be a part of the Rotoflex brand and its bright future," said Ken Daming, business unit manager for the Rotoflex brand.
