Mark Andy – P9E Performance Series press for flexible package printing
USA • The new Performance Series P9E press is specifically designed for high-quality flexible packaging production. Available in web widths up to 26 inch (660 mm), the flexo press is engineered as the ideal solution to print film, shrink sleeves, flexible packaging and foil lidding.
Performance Series P9E is built standard with new servo-controlled impression adjustment, independent servo-driven anilox rolls and servo side adjust at print speeds up to 300 m/min (1000 fpm). Ergonomic efficiency is at the forefront of the wider 560 mm and 660 mm (22” and 26”) web widths, which include plate cylinder loading support as well as an anilox and chamber drawer. Configured with Mark Andy AI, the Performance Series P9E offers advanced automation with automated registration and impression, job save, eight servo motors per station and a centralized control system. The enhancements reduce manual adjustments and associated downtime while meeting Industry 4.0 demands. The Mark Andy AI package is intelligent and customized to unique business needs, curbing potential production bottlenecks.
Given the increased demand for shrink and pouches coupled with larger volumes of shorter run lengths, the P9E is a profitable platform for short run flexible packaging. Key to its success is the flexibility it offers converters, with a rail system providing endless opportunity through decoration versatility.
