Performance Series eliminate costly time and material and wide open ac- cess to the print stations and to the frame under- neath make it easy to view the web and more efficiently web the press. Featurette — Customer Testimonial “The print stations are extremely user- friendly for press operators. They are well guarded yet very open for operator acces- sibility. The press controls are intuitive and easy to learn. P7 print quality is outstand- ing. We expect to win new accounts based on the sharpness and clarity of our process printing. Our press is configured with multi- layer capability and has proven to hold very tight print and die registration. Set-up and stop/start waste has been significantly reduced. We expect to reach our target of 50% reduction in waste and 50% increase in press speed on the P7 vs. our other equipment.” -A leading North American label converter Looking to the Future A significant finding from Mark Andy’s VOC research was that run lengths for convert- ers are getting shorter and shorter. And while “short run” means different things to different people, one fact remains - flexo converters want to know how they can meet these requirements and still provide their customers with a high-quality product at a price point that will work for both par- ties. The technology of the Performance Series press fulfills this need. With extremely fast job setups and change- overs, minimal distance between print stations, and pre- and auto-registration ca- pabilities, the Performance Series creates an affordable, high-quality solution for short runs at a competitive price. Flexo convert- ers are able to stay within their comfort zone of using the same suppliers and flexo printing technology they have long-found to be reliable. There is no need to invest in other technologies or workflows to meet the increased demands for shorter runs or fast turnarounds. Other technologies, such as digital printing, may result in much larger investments as well as longer learn- ing curves. Incorporating flexo technologies for short runs is a win-win situation for both converter and end-user. Leading North American Converter Speaks out • Press controls are intuitive and easy to learn. • P7 print quality is outstanding. • Sharpness and clarity of process printing will help win new accounts. • Press holds very tight print and die registration. • Set-up and start/stop waste has been significantly reduced.
