The Digital Series HD to be displayed at the show

There will be two digital hybrid presses at the Mark Andy stall — Digital Series HD and the Digital Series iQ, powered by Domino.

While the Digital Series HD and the Digital Series iQ are suited for different needs, both feature seamless integration with a complete set of end-to-end functionalities to help businesses grow. Both are inkjet digital hybrid presses capable of printing with extended colour gamut, six-colour process, and opaque white at true production speeds. In addition, both machines are designed with fast-change flexo features for top coating, lamination, foil stamping, and specialty colour printing and product decoration. Finishing attributes include Mark Andy’s high-speed semi-rotary die-cutting.

“The Digital Series HD and the Digital Series iQ utilise well-proven technology to ensure a reliable and profitable solution for our customers,” said Tom Cavalco, managing director, Mark Andy Europe. “Since its launch last year in the Americas, Digital Series iQ has been a fast seller, easily integrated by label converters. We are excited to showcase the machine for the first time in Europe in our booth at Labelexpo and are looking forward to seeing friends old and new at this year's event," he added.

The DSHD is based on Mark Andy’s well-proven Performance Series P7 full-servo platform. It is available in 330-mm and 430-mm web widths and prints with a resolution that exceeds high-definition flexo at speeds up to 73-m/min. It is the ideal choice for top quality printing across a range of substrates with the added benefit of inline product decoration and converting.

The new DSiQ is a fully integrated inkjet press built on a proven Mark Andy flexo platform. Powered by a robust Domino N610i UV inkjet module, it links digital brainpower with Mark Andy's converting expertise, and combines all the web handling, flexo printing, product decoration, and converting capability of the Mark Andy Evolution Series platform with the market-proven Domino N600 digital print engine technology.
