Mark Andy (St. Louis, MO) has launched the Performance Series narrow web inline printing and converting machine for pharma apps including labels, blister packages, and cartons. Models with different features and drive systems feature exclusive servo technology and programming. Proprietary algorithms maximize registration and job control.
The dual-servo P7 model was unveiled at Labelexpo last month in Brussels where the company demonstrated single print station set ups in less than one minute and complete six-color job changes in under five minutes.
The advanced P7 model includes servo-driven infeed pacing with closed loop tension control, independently servo-driven plate cylinder and impression roll, and servo-driven die station with 360 degree registration management. The series is designed to reduce ink and substrate waste.
“Everything works together with simplicity and agility . . . in a balance between capability, speed, and thorough execution. . . making the (series) one of the most flexible and productive narrow web presses available today,” says vice president of sales and marketing Greg Palm.
