The EB flexo press features the well-known solid MPS machine construction with self-evident predictable and reliable print quality, high productivity and user-friendly press operation.
Available with a print width of 360 mm, a material width of 368 mm, and a configuration of up to 10 print stations, the EB press brings a modular design and is an ideal solution for the printing and converting of self-adhesive labels in both short and long label print runs.
The EB press features Crisp.Dot Light technology. Thanks to this specially designed EB technology, there is no gear connection between the impression cylinder and print cylinder. As a result, substrate thickness and print cylinder pressure settings are not affected by gear profiles. Crisp. Dot Light guarantees predictable high-quality label printing, including the printing of vignettes and solids.
iSet Technology provides a user-friendly way to regulate settings between impression, print and the anilox rollers, without influencing each other. With iSet Technology, not only the left and right pressure settings of the plate cylinder/anilox roller can be set, but also the parallel pressure settings. iSet decreases setup waste and delivers reliable and repeatable quality.
iStop optimizes stops and starts during flexo printing and eliminates waste with material roll change. When the press is stopped, the print cylinder and anilox roller will remain in print position. Once the operator changes rolls and re-starts the press, the print units resumes printing immediately, without any web waste.

The revolutionary EXL-offset press, with offset sleeve combination printing, is the most versatile press available in the market. It offers variable sleeves for different repeat lengths, for both plates and blankets, and is easy to operate.
All inking and press settings of the EXL-offset machine are effectively automated with the innovative APC (Automated Print Control) technology from MPS.
The MPS EXL-offset press is a true innovation providing reliable quality and productivity that delivers high quality labels and packaging jobs very effectively, even in smaller print runs.
An important advantage of offset technology is the relatively low costs for the production of plates. The combination of very fine tones in application with solids, texts and fine lines, gives offset a very prominent position in terms of quality. A further benefit of using offset technology is the fact that screen-count can become much narrower, 200 screen lines per inch are not exceptional for offset, neither is the even finer FM-screening. These technology characteristics can become decisive in the highly competitive packaging print market.
The EXL’s offset combination press can be equipped with additional printing technologies like flexo, screen or gravure units and all necessary converting techniques. Flexo units are also available at the converting rail for flexible positioning. Hot and cold foil units can be placed in such a way that they do not tie up an offset print unit
Automated press controls
The EXL offset is a future-oriented packaging printing press, running completely automated. Ink keys are controlled by a ductor roller which refers to stored data like timing and tack of the ink. Form rollers are automatically maintained in pressure position. All pressure, ink, and water balance settings are servo driven and easily be uploaded out of job memory. In MPS’s job memory not only print settings are saved, also material calibration is applied, which means that all stored settings can be loaded for each different material used.
Material width: 430 – 530 mm (17 – 21 inch)
Printing width: 420 – 520 mm (16,5 – 20,5 inch)
Repeat size: 18 – 25 inch
Substrates: 15 – 450 µm
Standard with: sleeves printing, print gap, automated form rollers, automated doctor rollers, automated ink keys, auto wash, metric print, ultra-flex rail system, chill-drum
Optional: Automated Print Control (APC) package
The MPS EXL-Packaging press delivers wider and faster flexo printing without limits. Flexible packaging printing and converting with the use of an inline press is more economical then ever. With the EXL-Packaging press, extremely fast change-over times and remarkably short set-up waste guarantee optimal and productive printing and converting.
The EXL Packaging press can be equipped with UV, hot-air and LED drying technology, allowing users to print on a very large variety of substrates including thin film, paper, cartonboard, shrink sleeves, inmould, lamitube and flexible packaging.
In order to drive down the cost per 1,000 labels, MPS introduced Automated Print Control (APC) which provides automated servo control of all relevant press settings. Thanks to APC, press settings and controls are extremely easy to operate and replicate through job memory, resulting in virtually no set-up waste for repeat jobs.
Auto Lean Inking technology by MPS enables circulatory ink filling from an external tank placed on the service side of the printing unit. Ink is automatically added from this tank to the ink trays and any excess ink freely flows back into the tank. This innovative technology eliminates ink spitting or misting even at very high printing speeds. It also provides low ink make ready, very quick ink colour changes, and extremely quick wash-up.
