Mark Andy Inc. announces its presence at Labelexpo Americas 2014, to be held Sept. 9-11 in Chicago, IL. Focusing on the company’s commitment to serve as a Total Solutions Partner to printers and converters worldwide, the Mark Andy stand (319) will showcase a number of Business Responsive Technologies, which offer sustainable, quality solutions that deliver extreme productivity. These include:
• Mark Andy Digital Series: A hybrid platform featuring high-resolution 6-color UV inkjet printing and fully integrated in-line modules.

• Rotoflex VLI: Driven by eDrive and servo technology, Rotoflex equipment now offers even higher speeds and increased productivity.
• Mark Andy Mobile Roll Lift: Mark Andy Print Products offers a variety of solutions from consumables to small equipment like this Mobile Roll Lift (MRL) to optimize pressroom workflows.
Making its debut to the North American Labelexpo audience is the new Mark Andy Digital Series. A true production-level digital solution, the Digital Series runs high-quality jobs at full production speeds of 250 fpm/76 mpm. The unique hybrid platform is designed to be highly configurable and features high-resolution 6-color UV inkjet printing (CMYKOV+W) with top coating and fully integrated in-line modules including flexo printing, converting and decorating options. Live demonstrations of this robust, end-to-end solution will feature on-the-fly job changes and decorating options including cold foil, flexo spot color and varnish, as well as the award-winning Quick Change Die Cut (QCDC) technology.
The stand will also feature live demonstrations of the award winning, Full HD Flexo certified Mark Andy Performance Series flexo press platform. With more than 350 Performance Series presses installed since its introduction in 2009, this design has proven itself to be one of the most productive, flexible solutions available on the market today. The Performance Series P7 will feature the latest in proven curing technology, Mark Andy ProLED. UV LED curing of specialty inks and coatings, even on thinner filmic materials, can be achieved with no heat management, which is another significant advantage over traditional mercury systems.
Mark Andy Print Products, the newest division of Mark Andy, will make its Labelexpo Americas debut in September as well. This North American-focused division, introduced in July 2013, meets customers’ needs for printing supplies, consumables and equipment to support pressroom efficiency.
