The two 13-inches and eight-colour Mark Andy presses booked by Webtech Industries during the expo, are fully loaded and they belong to Mark Andy’s newly launched Pro Series narrow-web flexo printing presses. 

Amar Chhajed of Webtech Industries said, “We are happy with the collaboration of FIG and Webtech. We are planning to establish a new plant in the western part of the country, most likely in Mumbai, with all advanced equipment and facilities.” 

Gourav Roy, managing director, FIG, said that this is a landmark achievement for FIG. “The presses will be delivered soon. A few pieces of post-press equipment also have been booked. We are really happy to see an industry veteran invest in our printing solutions,” he said. 

He added, “Labelexpo Europe this year was a fantastic show for us. Mark Andy launched the highly-advanced Pro Series during the event and we have bagged multiple deals of the press.” 

A new class of fully servo presses, the Mark Andy Pro Series is perfectly designed to attack throughput with exceptional time and waste savings, accelerating profitability for short-run label work to another level.  

It features a flexo workflow that can compete in the digital space. When it comes to waste reduction, Mark Andy Pro Series’ pre-registration sets near perfect after the first label and its auto-registration maintains registration at all speeds. It runs at the maximum speed of 150-mpm (500-fpm) taking up substrates ranging from 50-305 micron (2–12 mil). 

With an unwind capacity of 30-inches and a rewind capacity of 30-inches, Mark Andy Pro Series covers the majority of pressure-sensitive and other non-film work. 

Chhajed said, “We are certain that we will gain the previous momentum and acceptance from the industry. One of our two new Mark Andy Pro flexo label printing presses will be used only for pharma packaging and printing.”

At the Labelexpo Europe 2023, FIG represented Mark Andy as well as some of the other leading international brands like Rhyguan, Luster, Maxcess, Eson, Kluge, Presstek, Rotoflex, Eson, and KDS.
