The MPS Talk to me connectivity technology, providing real-time data exchange and control, will now be introduced into all future MPS presses on a global scale. During Labelexpo Europe 2019, the overall program will be presented as part of the ‘Beyond the machine’ experience on MPS booth 11C20.
Bert van den Brink, MPS co-founder, said: ‘MPS strives to deliver even better performance for our customers in areas of job changeovers, services, operator training and measuring results by using the intelligence from our presses to create process and workflow improvements for the printing machine.
‘Today, with the Internet of Things (IoT), connectivity developments and techniques are now available at a large scale with intensive security and robustness. MPS embraced and implemented these connectivity capabilities to create a platform for our customers which give more insight into their processes and equipment productivity, with performance measurement and analyzing services.’
Launched at Labelexpo Europe 2017, the MPS Talk to me connectivity platform connects printing machines and workflow with Management Information Systems (MIS) for real-time data exchange and control.
Data to be exchanged from the MIS to press includes all job-related machine settings and tooling information presented to the operator in the job queue. Data from the press to MIS consists of the printing speed, meters/yards printed (order status), waste produced (waste sheets), set-up and printing time.
