PPL announces the purchase of two new Mark Andy Performance Series P-7 presses.
The most technologically advanced offering in the newest line of Mark Andy presses, the P7 is the high-end, efficient solution for the most complex print applications. Multiple servos accommodate more functions at each print station and the independent web pacing allows enhanced web tension management over traditional flexo presses. Integral to the success of the machine is the simplicity of the print station design, guaranteeing consistency and accuracy, shift-to-shift and day-to-day. Additional advantages over traditional presses include short web paths and minimal ink usage requirements resulting in waste savings up to 50% and fast changeover times for increased productivity. With 10 and 12 color stations, both of PPL's new P-7 presses are 17" wide, have 4 interchangeable rotary screens and 100% inspection and reinsertion. One press is equipped with water chill drums that allow management of web temperature, especially when utilizing heat-sensitive substrates, such as unsupported film.
