General manager, Piotr Lavrov, AzimutPrint, next to their second MPS press

Russian label printer, AzimutPrint, has installed its second MPS flexo press with the purchase of an EF 430 flexo press for industrial, food and commodity self-adhesive labels. 

The company previously purchased an MPS EF 410 flexo press with 10 colours and Automated Print Control (APC), which prints and converts comprehensive designs for oil, pharmaceutical and cosmetic labels. 

The new installation is equipped with seven colours, UV dryers, a die-station, matrix rewinder, web video and a low tension control rewind system. Another feature of the EF flexo press is gearless technology; as there is no connection between the plate roller and the impression cylinder there is no friction, resulting in no gear marking. 

Printing manager, Artem Volkov, commented, ‘Our first MPS EF press proved to be a versatile printing press: stable print quality, flexibility and performance are a given on this press. Even when running more challenging print jobs, we achieved optimum production results. We also valued the availability of local sales and service support which is always quick to respond with any advice or assistance we need. It just simply made sense to invest once again in MPS.’
