Maintaining warm partnerships in South Korea
< News overview
During his trip to South Korea, Project Manager John Beltman visited two main MPS customers last week. First, he visited Finewebtech for the preparation of a life-extending machine overhaul. Secondly, DPS to discuss the machine operation and additional after sales service programs that MPS can provide.
Complete overhaul at Finewebtech
Finewebtech, being the 1st MPS customer in Korea, is using the MPS EP machine to their full satisfaction. A great deal of their production is based on this very flexible machine. Finewebtech especially appreciates the ease of operation and the fast changeover time between flexo & screen printing. They only have to take out a flexo print cylinder and replace this with a screen cylinder in the same print station.
To secure & guarantee the machine performance in the future, MPS will do a complete overhaul of the control system of the machine. All electronic drive & control parts will be replaced by the latest state of the art control system of Bosch Rexroth. Mechanically, the EP machine is a very stable machine and is running without any issue and will continue to do so for many more years. By installing a complete new machine control system, Finewebtech has secured the future operation with this solid MPS EP press.
From letterpress to flexo at Dongil Print Service
Dongil Print Service (DPS) installed an MPS EF 530 wide machine 1 ½ years ago and has taken the introduction of their first flexo press seriously. A lot of effort has been spent on learning the flexo process. Until last year, DPS only used letterpresses to print labels.

DPS ensures as well that the MPS flexo press was optimally included into the press room logistics. Before scheduling real work on the machine, DPS made sure that they knew the machine and flexo process well. At this moment, DPS has a full production schedule with the flexo press and achieves excellent quality labels. This has opened up a new market for DPS.
MPS will keep supporting DPS together with the partner Müller Korea on all aspects of the machine and the production process to further increase the performance of the machine and the DPS staff.
