Mark Andy introduces Digital Pro Plus

Label Solutions


Mark Andy has launched a new version of its user friendly Digital Pro series of hybrid presses. Known as Digital Pro Plus, it uses the well proven Pro Series flexo platform as a base for short to. Medium run high quality digital printing that combines dry toner with optional flexo and in line finishing techniques.

 

Described by newly appointed product manager for digital presses, Ben Luly, as: ‘An affordable and versatile digital hybrid with expandable capabilities to suit changes in market demand, from roll to roll to a fully configured single pass print and finishing line’, Digital Pro Plus has a standard web width of 330 mm, and a 1200 x 2400 print resolution, equivalent to 3600 dpi. 

 


Capable of production speeds up to 24 metres per minute on a variety of substrates from paper to supported films and foil, the compact design of DPro Plus gives it a small footprint that will fit into even the most crowded production floor.

 

DPro Plus builds on the success of Digital One and Digital Pro, which have seen more than 300 successful installations worldwide since launching in 2016. By combining a proven digital toner engine with Mark Andy’s 77 years of web handling expertise, DPro Plus offers label converters an investment opportunity to grow their business organically and in an affordable way in response to changes in customer demand.

 

‘We genuinely see it as a clear roadmap for growth as its capability can be scaled up as and when required. It is the right press for high quality CMYK printing roll to roll but is easily and affordably upgradeable to a full scale in line production tool that can include flexo printing before and after the digital unit, cold foil, lamination, semi rotary die cutting, slitting, scoring, sheeting, and delivery onto a stack conveyor – it really is a great all rounder!’ he added.

 

With no ‘clean room’ requirement DPro Plus is the ideal production tool for a variety of prime labels for the food and beverage, industrial, craft goods and health and beauty sectors, amongst others. Its variable data capability is perfectly suited to today’s increasing demand for the shorter runs, more personalisation and versioning that are demanded by brand owners and print buyers alike.

 

‘Perhaps, best of all, it is a Mark Andy product with all the benefits that brings to the narrow web sector. This includes service plans, a global network of support and parts, technical expertise in all aspects of printing and converting, and a 24 hour a day, seven days a week helpline if you ever need it, as well as the availability of all consumables through Mark Andy Print Products (MAPP). We have the most extensive portfolio of narrow web technology on the market and the know how to match – that is why I am confident that DPro Plus will be a winner,’ Ben concluded.
