Digital Pro 3 – a configurable inline CMYK digital hybrid toner press.

Mark Andy has launched its Digital Pro product line, the latest development to its digital product offerings, with a production speed of 77 fpm (23.4 mpm) for various applications.

Available for immediate order, the CMYK dry toner Digital Pro line includes a roll-to-roll press, Digital Pro 1, and a configurable inline hybrid model, Digital Pro 3. Digital Pro 1 is a roll-to-roll machine, fitted with an unwind, print engine and rewind, providing 12.5-inch digital print width. The introductory Digital Pro system is important for plants with established converting and finishing workflows, simplifying digital print for operators to a click of the button, the company explains, noting that as business and workflows evolve, the modular nature of Digital Pro 1 provides an upgrade path with scalable inline printing and converting options.

Digital Pro 1 is joined by the advanced inline hybrid model: Digital Pro 3. This system includes a multi-purpose flexo station for inline embellishment and is fuelled by a robust DFE that supports variable data printing and versioning needed in the short- and micro-run market segment.

Digital Pro 3 can be configured with a single slot die station or with a semi rotary die module to finish labels inline. The semi-rotary system is designed to reduce die inventory and comes with a standard 19-inch magnetic cylinder to accommodate most repeats without tool changeover.

Digital Pro system is fuelled by a high-yield toner and supports a range of substrates and applications with no priming or coating required. Additional media capabilities supported by the product line include vinyl, PVC and foil.

Digital One press owners are eligible for a field upgrade of the new Digital Pro engine into their existing machine to optimize production and help increase margins with a substantially lower cost to print structure. The Digital Pro engine upgrade boasts a 70-percent increase in speed and a 30-percent lower cost to print over the previous generation Digital One press, it explains.
