The MPS EXL-Packaging press delivers wider and faster flexo printing without limits. Flexible packaging printing and converting with the use of an inline press is more economical than ever. With the EXL-Packaging press, extremely fast change-over times and remarkably short set-up waste guarantee optimal and productive printing and converting.
Combined UV, Hot Air and LED Drying technology

The EXL Packaging press can be equipped with UV, hot-air and LED drying technology, allowing users to print on a very large variety of substrates including thin film, paper, cartonboard, shrink sleeves, inmould, lamitube and flexible packaging.
Automated Press Controls
In order to drive down the cost per 1,000 labels, MPS introduced Automated Print Control (APC) which provides automated servo control of all relevant press settings. Thanks to APC, press settings and controls are extremely easy to operate and replicate through job memory, resulting in virtually no set-up waste for repeat jobs.
Auto Lean Inking
Auto Lean Inking technology by MPS enables circulatory ink filling from an external tank placed on the service side of the printing unit. Ink is automatically added from this tank to the ink trays and any excess ink freely flows back into the tank. This innovative technology eliminates ink spitting or misting even at very high printing speeds. It also provides low ink make ready, very quick ink colour changes, and extremely quick wash-up.
Flexibility of the EXL-packaging is extensive; it is suitable for printing with UV, water based and solvent based inks. The EXL-packaging is a flexo press, but different printing and converting units can be integrated as well. Examples include screen, gravure, laminating, hot foil and cold foil units.
