The two EF 430, 10-colour flexo presses are highly automated and customized, and feature the MPSConnect and Performance Program
CAPE TOWN, South Africa—ROTOCON has received two additional orders for the MPS EF next generation flexo press. Both presses feature 430mm web width, 10-colours, and MPSConnect with the Performance Program to optimize press performance.
The MPS EF next generation is a fully automated flexo printing press based on the successful foundation of six previous EF platform generations. The highly modular press is built with multi-web functionalities, extremely stable web transport, and the MPS Ultra-flex rail system to incorporate a range of converting modules.
With the MPSConnect and Performance Program, real-time data collection is made for all printing and operational related processes such as web speed, web tension, power usage, register & pressure settings, alarm messaging, humidity, and environmental temperature. A designated MPS performance team supports customers in defining goals and actions to achieve press performance improvements.
Another two additional MPS EF next generation flexo presses were also recently ordered by ROTOCON for printers in Johannesburg—an EF 430 8-colour fully automated press for TubePac International printing lami tube material and an EF 340 at Redfern Labels, the 30th MPS press installed in South Africa.
ROTOCON has been the appointed local distributor in South Africa for MPS since 2012. "MPS’ reputation of high calibre flexo presses known for ease of operation, exceptional print quality, and high return on investment ratio is why we chose to partner with them over 10 years ago," said Michael Aengenvoort, ROTOCON group CEO. "Since then, MPS has continued to push the envelope in press innovations with MPSConnect and their Performance Program providing the ultimate in press productivity for label printers.
“In addition to new press sales, we have also assisted label printers source previously owned MPS equipment, as these narrow web presses are reliably built to print labels for decades.”
