Mark Andy Announces New Printing Solution
Digital Pro PLUS roll to roll.

Known as Digital Pro PLUS, Mark Andy’s new version of its Digital Pro series of hybrid presses uses the Mark Andy Pro Series flexo platform as a base for short to medium run high-quality digital printing that combines dry toner with optional flexo and inline finishing techniques.

Described by Mark Andy’s 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 330mm, and a 1200 x 2400 print resolution, equivalent to 3600dpi. Capable of production speeds up to 23m/min 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 a unique 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’s the right press for high-quality CMYK printing roll-to-roll but is easily and affordably upgradeable to a full-scale inline 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 PS labels for the food and beverage, industrial, craft goods and health and beauty sectors among others. Its variable data capability is perfectly suited to today’s increasing demand for shorter runs, more personalisation and versioning that are demanded by brand owners and print buyers alike.
