During Labelexpo Europe, Mark Andy Inc. was honored with the prestigious Award for Innovation for delivering a UV LED curing system, ProLED. Flint Group also won an Award for Innovation for their development of EkoCure UV LED printing inks. Both companies have spent nearly two years in joint development of the technology, making it an available mainstream technology for converters printers worldwide.
This Award for Innovation marks the fourth innovation award in the past three years. In 2011, the Performance Series line of printing equipment won two innovation awards for its exclusive and unique print station design, and the new Quick Change Die Cut (QCDC) was recognized earlier this year for its high-speed, extremely accurate die cutting technology.
“We are very happy to receive the Award for Innovation this year for Mark Andy ProLED. We are proud of the successful collaboration with Flint Group. Working together through joint cooperation has a truly positive impact on the industry as a whole, and we hope to see more of this among other industry suppliers,” said P.J. Desai, president of Mark Andy Inc.
In addition to the award, this year’s Labelexpo proved to be one of the best exhibitions yet for Mark Andy and Rotoflex. The company launched several new technologies in Europe – ProLED and Quick Change Die Cut for the Mark Andy flexo press line, and URC 2.0 advanced control system for Rotoflex inspection rewinders.
