MPS introduces UV flexo press to North and Latin American converters with choice of plate rolls or print sleeves

MPS announced the introduction of its flagship EF flexo printing press that features a choice of either plate rolls or print sleeves to North and Latin American printers. The technology will be presented at Labelexpo Americas, where local MPS organizations MPS America and MPS Latin America are joining forces in booth 1321.

According to Denny McGee, president of MPS America LLC, the EF press is an extremely high-quality production press that features both UV and hot-air drying technology, allowing users to print diverse substrates including film, paper, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging.

McGee says the EF press is unique to the North and Latin American market, and is the result of MPS listening to the needs of customers. “Our goal at MPS is to help printers excel. We listen closely to their needs and challenges, and develop solutions that specifically address them, that is for example why we made the EF available for both plate rolls or print sleeves at moment of order” he said.

The EF press is particularly geared at enabling press operators to maximize their performance. “The key for success in today’s label and packaging industry is the press operator,” said McGee. “His or her skills, experience and motivation determine more than anything else the productivity and printing quality and, ultimately, the return on investment. It’s all about people. However, finding and keeping these operators is one of the biggest challenges printers face. While we can’t help them find those people, we can develop printing presses that enable printers to get the most out of their press operators.
