Mark Andy will debut Digital One, a new entry-level inkjet printing and converting label press, at Labelexpo Americas 2016, running from September 13 to 15 in Rosemont, Illinois. Deliveries of Digital One are scheduled to begin in December 2016 in North America and to the rest of world in Q1 2017.
The new press, according to the company, is designed to print short run prime labels with in-line converting at a low investment level – using what Mark Andy describes as a pay-as-you-go model. The press provides 4-colour CMYK printing with a 1,200 x 1,200-dpi resolution combined with a single flexo station for in-line converting and decorating.
The standardized configuration features a web width of 13 inch (330 mm) with printing speeds reaching 63 feet per minute (19 metres per miute) on various substrates including pressure sensitive paper and film, unsupported paper and tag stocks. The servo-driven flexo station offers capabilities to spot colour, varnish, laminate, and cold foil with in-line finishing offering die cutting, stripping and slitting capabilities. Equipped with air-cooled UV LED curing and an onboard compressor, Digital One requires a 220v single phase power source.
Mark Andy Manager of Business Development, Tim Brasher, believes that the Digital One will go hand-in-hand with the company’s strategic growth initiatives, providing superior, productive digital solutions to a wider range of markets and converters. This extension of our robust product line reinforces the Mark Andy commitment to being a Total Solutions Partner to the label and packaging market.
“Demands for digital capabilities are steadily increasing,” said Mark Andy Manager of Business Development, Tim Brasher. “Digital One is a viable solution for converters allowing them to engage with more customers and seek more opportunities to generate revenue for their businesses.”
