Redfern Labels celebrated the installation of a new MPS EF 340 next generation flexo press at its production facility in Johannesburg.
The machine sale was led by Patrick Aengenvoort, ROTOCON director and co-owner, and Marius van Lith, MPS Regional Sales Director, with the installation completed by a team of MPS and ROTOCON service technicians.
Features of Redfern’s new highly automated MPS EF 9-colour 330mm (13 inch) flexo press include MPSConnect, delam/relam and turnbar, multilam (coldfoil) and a separate laminating unit, two die stations with Wink’s SmartGap® adjustable anvil systems, and Phoseon’s Nexus ONE™ UV LED curing systems.
The MPSConnect feature provides real-time performance insights of the MPS EF press through the collection of multi-directional data from hundreds of sensors every second. This revolutionary data collection helps identify bottlenecks, errors and inefficiencies in the operator process, optimises press performance, and decreases waste.
With office and manufacturing facilities in Johannesburg and Cape Town, and a satellite office in Durban, Redfern Labels is a producer of flexographic labels including pressure sensitive labels (PSL), printed BOPP (wraparounds) and shrink sleeves. For over 30 years, Redfern has been a key labelling partner to farmers, fruit exporters, educators, entrepreneurs and many household brands.
‘We thank both MPS and ROTOCON team members involved with the realisation of our beautiful MPS printing machine we have affectionally named Marvel, for their excellent workmanship, patient nature and passion for what they do,’ said Terry Adinolfi, Managing Director of Redfern Labels.
