A true friction- less print moment is created. The substrate is gently driven through the machine by using a separately controlled servo driven and chilled web transportation system. Furthermore, MPS made the decision in 1996 to rubberize the free running impression roll. The rubber impression roll treats microscopic dots ex- tremely well. This results in perfect round dots, full coverage in the dots and less dot gain compared to the traditional steel impression cylinders. The MPS Crisp.Dot technology allows all operators to produce the same high level of quality and productivity. iSet intelligent pressure settings (patent pending): The used geometric is based on the principle that pressure settings of the impres- sion cylinder, print cylinder and anilox roller are not influencing each other. This intelligent pressure setting creates the unique feature for the operator to make settings independent left and right, and parallel. iStop: At print stations equipped with UV dryers, the operator can use iStop technol- ogy. The machine will stop while both the print cylinder and anilox roller stay in printing position. At machine start, the print units start immediately printing without any web waste. iControl: Intelligent hardware and software for press control and operator communication, positioned at each print station for local con- trol and at the end of the machine for central control. iControl is a unique press control for your operator and guarantees low setup waste. AutoTeach: At MPS, your printer---instead of the printing press---determines the desired web path. The AutoTeach technology teaches the press the web path that is used for the job. APC (Automated Print Control): With MPS' extended automation packages on the EF, the print settings of the print sleeve (APC package) as well as the material thickness adjustments (APC advanced package) are accurately controlled by maintenance free ser- vo positioning motors. This will result in cost savings for both initial job settings as well as repeat jobs. Both APC packages are available only for print sleeves. AUGUST 2014 | FLEXO 75 PRESS BUYER'S GUIDE / NARROW WEB
