Mark Andy is at Labelexpo Americas 2022 this week with a strong focus on digital transformation and end-to-end workflow, embellishing, die-cutting and production automation.
Labelexpo Americas 2022 sees the first public showing of Mark Andy’s digital press incorporating Konica Minolta’s Accurio Label 400 (AL400) toner-based print engine. The press is configured as standard with five colors, CMYK and white, printing at speeds up to 130 ft/min in roll to roll and hybrid configuration.
‘Through our strategic partnership with Konica Minolta, Mark Andy is extending its solutions for digital print production to be optimized for mid-to-high volume converters,’ commented Greg Palm, executive vice president, sales and marketing, at Mark Andy.
Under the terms of the partnership agreement, Mark Andy is the exclusive provider of Konica Minolta’s AL400 print technology to the label and packaging industry.
Mark Andy is showcasing its latest production inkjet press, the Digital Series iQ. The iQ is built on Mark Andy’s Evolution Series flexo platform for application flexibility and boasting proven award-winning web handling and digital implementation. The iQ was developed for converters looking to start their digital transformation using proven inkjet printing and converting technology.
Completing the digital line-up will be a Digital Series HD press – configured with four flexo units and with in-line flexo varnish and die-cutting.
Rotoflex finishing equipment on the Mark Andy stand includes VSI and VLI inspection-rewinders and the new AT4 quick-change auto turret rewind, configurable for in-line or off-line label finishing. Auto core gluing and label closer options are available.
The company’s division Mark Andy Print Products (MAPP) will exhibit a full range of flexo plate imaging and processing equipment from leading prepress suppliers including DuPont Cyrel plates and FAST processor, Tesa mounting tape and Esko digital imaging equipment and software.
Mark Andy will also have representatives on the booth from Kluge and Presstek.
