Mark Andy will present its Digital Series HD at Labelexpo Europe 2023.

The Digital Series HD press combines high-resolution digital print and top-tier production capabilities in a single pass workflow.

Hybrids have become increasingly popular among label printers and converters worldwide, Mark Andy says. The company’s premier hybrid press, Digital Series HD (DSHD) is equipped with proprietary digital and flexo print technologies, and prints at speeds up to 240 ft/min (73 m/min).

The Digital Series HD will be equipped with value-added print features and an automatic turret rewinder, demonstrating Mark Andy’s ability to provide end-of-line automation technology.

Mark Andy has embraced automation, and will premiere at Labelexpo its ProWorx Label Suite, an exclusive imposition tool. This new software streamlines and automates label production setup, including inline printing and embellishment processes. ProWorx Label Suite is an Adobe Creative Cloud extension tailored to Mark Andy’s hybrid presses. It provides job defining and imposition for printing and post-processing, including die-cutting, and allows for more efficient and sustainable label production.

Also on display will be sMArt link, an on-press production monitoring solution that enables customers to make data-driven decisions based on real-time data collection. Reducing waste, improving job estimating and improving press optimization are some of the key benefits. sMArt link is available on all new Mark Andy presses and can be retrofitted to Mark Andy and other brands of production equipment
