Flexo printing with shrink sleeves draws crowds in Korea

< News overview

At the recently held Korea International Printing Machinery & Equipment Show (KIPES), MPS made a debut presence in a shared stand with local representative Sanki.

MPS Systems Asia’s Managing Director, Tim Klappe and his team showcased an 8 colour MPS EF 530, printing wrap around labels with micro text on thin film. “This multi-substrate flexo press can print anything from simple labels to complicated multi-layer labels, shrink sleeves, and various packaging materials.” The EF 530 was successfully sold to an Asian customer. 


Demonstrated during live runs, was the printing of shrink sleeve and wrap around label substrates on a flexo press, showing the benefits compared to traditional letterpress printers.

Klappe comments: “Showing a press running at 200 m/min on a 20” substrate, demonstrated the many visitors the enormous productivity that this MPS press can achieve. Whether you run thin films or self-adhesive substrates, this press showed that you can increase your label production tremendously. The press on the KIPES exhibition also had the possibility to do delam/relam, silkscreen printing, cold foil and other laminates, multi-layer labels and die-cutting. That makes this press truly flexible. The printers can accept all kind of self-adhesive jobs, shrink-sleeve jobs, and special jobs like lamitubes or alu lids. It was fun to see to positive reactions from the visitors watching this machine go faster and faster.”
