AzimutPrint expands capacity with a new 7 colour EF UV flexo press from MPS and the second in the facility

MPS announced the successful installation of an EF 430 flexo press for Russian label printer AzimutPrint. The EF press, a second MPS flexo press for AzimutPrint, will primarily print industrial, food and commodity self-adhesive labels. AzimutPrint previously purchased an MPS EF 410 flexo press with 10 colours and Automated Print Control (APC), which prints and converts comprehensive designs for oil, pharmaceutical and cosmetic labels. 

AzimutPrint’s second EF press is equipped with 7 colours, UV dryers, a die-station, matrix rewinder, web video and a low tension control rewind system. Another feature of the EF flexo press is gearless technology; as there is no connection between the plate roller and the impression cylinder there is no friction, resulting in no gear marking.

Superior performance from their first MPS press along with exceptional after-sales service and support from local MPS agent Ogard led to AzimutPrint opting for a second MPS flexo press investment. AzimutPrint’s printing manager Mr.Artem Volkov comments: “Our first MPS EF press proved to be a versatile printing press: stable print quality, flexibility and performance are a given on this press. Even when running more challenging print jobs, we achieved optimum production results. We also valued the availability of local sales and service support from Ogard, who is always quick to respond with any advice or assistance we need. It just simply made sense to invest once again in MPS.”

Founded in 1996, AzimutPrint specializes in the production of self-adhesive labels, wraparound labels, carton board and synthetic tags. Highly qualified and experienced staff and the latest high-tech machinery has led to Azimut’s strong position in the Russian market of high-quality self-adhesive labels. AzimutPrint employs 90 people and is located in Yaroslavl city, an industrial region North-East from Moscow.
