MPS expands its multi-substrate press offering

EF multi-substrate presses are now available from MPS in three versions to suit different market requirements.

EF multi-substrate presses are now available from MPS in three versions to suit different market requirements. They range from cost-efficient to advanced, fully automated machinery, to serve all segments of the label, flexible packaging and converting markets.

The standard EF press offers an automation package including Job Memory. From this standard configuration, two additional automation packages for "the ultimate in print setting control" can be configured to further increase the productivity of the press. The three new versions are designated EF, EF-APC, and EF-APC Advanced.

From the standard EF design, the EF-APC version is enhanced with automation on the print sleeve settings. With the use of servo positioning technology, the sleeves are loaded automatically on the print unit, while the APC (Automatic Print Control) option automatically sets the desired print pressure settings. The EF-APC version is also built with slide-out ink drawers and Dynamic Print Control "to guarantee flawless and consistent print quality at all press speeds".

For further automation, the EF-APC Advanced version includes the EF-APC features in addition to Automatic Print Control on the print gap (substrate related). For initial jobs, material calibration memory is uploaded and recalled for repeat jobs. Print positional settings for plate sleeves and anilox rolls can also be stored and recalled. All desired print settings are achieved within seconds and waste quota is virtually negligible, according to MPS.
