Mark Andy is pleased to announce the newest addition to its successful Performance Series product line – the P5. Incorporating the uniquely engineered print-head design common to all Performance Series presses, the P5 meets the critical needs of today’s converters by providing fast changeovers, simple operation and superior print quality – all characteristics which have quickly elevated the Performance Series to a leading position in the flexo press market since its introduction in September, 2009.

Central to the newly developed P5 is its commitment to productivity, efficiency and ease-of-use. With simple, repeatable settings and limited operator steps for quick and easy job setup, the P5 exhibits the fastest makeready times in the industry — a four-color setup can be complete in just 3 minutes! A minimal amount of ink required for production runs, as well as very short web paths (53 in / 135 cm between print heads), can reduce material waste by up to 50%, giving converters that efficient, lean edge so important in today’s competitive environment. A self-positioning doctor blade setup, load and lock inking system, easy-to-operate controls and wide open access to the print deck and plate rolls make this press simple for any operator, regardless of skill level.

Jeff Feltz, product manager, Mark Andy, Inc. states, “The first model of the series, the multiple servo P7, is our higher-end solution for complex applications. We are excited to offer the same, savvy print station and flexible frame design in the P5, a machine for the everyday converter looking to achieve servo-driven productivity and high quality levels, at an extremely appealing value.”

“The success we have seen since the introduction of the Performance Series has been astounding,” adds Paul Brauss, president & CEO, Mark Andy, Inc. “The acceptance in the marketplace reinforces we are really addressing the converters’ needs. We look forward to continued success with the P5.”

Sales for the Performance Series P7 have been substantial since its introduction, with more than 20 machines sold to date. Orders for the new P5 are already in-house, with first installations scheduled to be complete in April, 2010. Interested converters may contact their local sales representative to learn more about the P5 and the rest of the Performance Series line. The P5 will be on display at the Labelexpo Americas show to be held in Chicago, Illinois, USA in September 2010.
