Rottaprint has ordered the first MPS press to be installed in Romania, an EFA+ fully automated multi-substrate flexo press, to expand its shrink sleeve production.

The MPS EFA is a multi-substrate presses designed for printing labels and flexible packaging on any material, varying from thin unsupported films, self-adhesive labels, shrink sleeves and cartonboard up to 450μm.

For increased automation, the EFA+ package enables full servo driven automation of all print pressure settings.

The press is equipped with the MPS ‘talk to me’ connectivity, a platform now included with the purchase of all new MPS printing presses. Talk to me connects printing machines and workflow with Management Information Systems (MIS) for real-time data exchange and control, providing printers with valuable data intelligence to identify bottlenecks and increase production efficiency. 

‘We are very pleased that Rottaprint chose MPS,’ said Sebastiaan Rakhorst, MPS regional sales director for Central and Southeast Europe. ‘The purchase process was comprehensive, involving in-depth knowledge sharing with MPS customers in the Netherlands and Spain and two days spent at MPS headquarters in Arnhem for live press demonstrations. We also visited Rottaprint on-site to learn more about their production environment and company strategy in the years ahead.’
