Mark Andy at Labelexpo Europe 2022

Leading narrow web press manufacturer, Mark Andy, is delighted to confirm its participation at Labelexpo Europe 2022 in Brussels.  Mark Andy’s booth will highlight the company’s digital and flexo hybrid technology that provides label converters with a wide variety of solutions for fast and efficient production from pre-press workflow to management systems, and from consumables and supplies to converting and finishing options.

On working demonstration in Brussels will be two Mark Andy digital hybrid presses: Digital Series HD and the manufacturer’s latest launch Digital Series iQ, powered by Domino, both of which will be available for visitors to inspect close-up during the entire event.

While Digital Series HD and Digital Series iQ are suited for different needs, both feature seamless integration with a complete set of end-to-end functionalities to help businesses grow.  Both are inkjet digital hybrid presses capable of printing with extended colour gamut, 6-colour process, and opaque white at true production speeds.  In addition, both machines are designed with fast-change flexo features for top coating, lamination, foil stamping, and specialty colour printing and product decoration. Finishing attributes include Mark Andy’s high-speed semi-rotary die cutting.

‘The Digital Series HD and the Digital Series iQ utilise well-proven technology to ensure a reliable and profitable solution for our customers,’ said Tom Cavalco, Managing Director, Mark Andy Europe.  ‘Since its launch last year in the Americas, Digital Series iQ has been a fast seller, easily integrated by label converters. We are excited to showcase the machine for the first time in Europe on our booth at Labelexpo and are looking forward to seeing friends old and new at this year’s event,’ he added.

The DSHD is based on Mark Andy’s well-proven Performance Series P7 full-servo platform. It is available in 330mm (13”) and 430mm (17”) web widths and prints with a resolution that exceeds high-definition flexo at speeds up to 73m/min (240 ft/min).  It is the ideal choice for top quality printing across a range of substrates with the added benefit of inline product decoration and converting.

The new DSiQ is a fully integrated inkjet press built on a proven Mark Andy flexo platform. Powered by a robust Domino N610i UV inkjet module, it links digital brainpower with Mark Andy’s converting expertise, and combines all the web handling, flexo printing, product decoration, and converting capability of the Mark Andy Evolution Series platform with the market-proven Domino N600 digital print engine technology.

Commenting for the show organiser, Labelexpo Managing Director Lisa Milburn stated: ‘We are delighted to welcome Mark Andy to Labelexpo Europe 2022.  It is very exciting news for our visitors that they will be using the show for the European launch of the new Digital Series IQ platform powered by Domino, alongside the latest version of their Digital Series HD press.’
