MPS and Jebsen Industrial set for debut at Labelexpo Asia

MPS announced its debut participation alongside its Chinese distributor Jebsen Industrial at Labelexpo Asia 2013, held December 3rd-6th at Shanghai. The tenth anniversary and sixth edition of Asia’s biggest label and converting industry event promises to be the largest in its history. Show visitors are welcomed to stand G17 in hall E2 to learn about the recently broadened range of MPS flexo and offset printing presses from the EB, EF and EXL series, available in print widths ranging from 280 to 660mm.

New extended EF multi-substrate flexo press line Unveiled at Labelexpo 2013, the extended MPS EF multi-substrate flexo press line, now available in three versions: EF, EF-APC and EF-APC Advanced, ranging in cost and level of automation. APC (Automated Print Control) allows pre-programming of print pressure settings and enables the press operator to store and recall repeat jobs. The EF press line is the premium solution for both labels and unsupported film materials for flexible packaging. The EF press from MPS is one of the most productive flexo systems in the industry.

EXL offset and packaging presses
The EXL offset is a full rotary offset combination press for high-speed and high-end label production. The innovative press has variable sleeves for different repeat lengths. With APC on all pressure settings, MPS EXL offset offers the fastest job changeover, highest predictability and repeatable print quality available today in offset combination printing.

The EXL packaging press is ideally-suited for wide-web flexible packaging printing, providing an economical alternative. It offers extremely quick change-over time and remarkably little set-up waste guaranteeing optimal printing and converting.

MPS presses are designed with an absolute focus on the lowest cost price per 1,000 labels. Manufactured in the Netherlands, all MPS machinery meet the highest standards in terms of print quality and ease of use.

China emerging market for MPS
MPS views Asia as an important area for future company growth, with China as the key emerging market. MPS Area Sales Manager Erik Blomjous comments: “Following the successful introduction of MPS at China Print held in May this year, we are once again teaming up with Jebsen Industrial at Labelexpo Asia to present our innovative flexo and offset printing presses ranging from cost-efficient to fully-automated press capabilities.
