The Mark Andy P7 flexo press is equipped with 8 UV and Hot Air flexo print units. The machine set-up is fully automated, print quality is monitored by an in-line camera inspection system and adjusted at any manufacturing speed across a full range of substrates. The Mark Andy P7 is ideal for short run lengths where a rapid changeover is essential.
The press is part of Chesapeake's ongoing investment programme which has benefited all its global operations. This includes the recent installation of a Gidue M5 digital label press at one of Wrexham's sister sites at Bourne, Lincolnshire. Ian Bates went onto say, "We have been impressed with the increased automation and environmental related improvements offered by the press. The inline quality inspection system from AVT as well as the automatic register functions of the press will enable us to maintain even greater product consistency for our customers. The efficiency improvements will also significantly reduce both ink and material waste helping us to meet our environmental goals."
