South African flexo label printer Redfern Labels has installed a new MPS EF 340 flexo press to its production facility in Johannesburg, South Africa. The system is a 9-color 350mm flexo press that includes MPSConnect, delam/relam and turnbar, multilam (coldfoil) and a separate laminating unit, two die stations with Wink’s SmartGap adjustable anvil systems, and Phoseon’s Nexus one UV LED curing systems.
The MPSConnect feature provides real-time performance insights of the MPS EF press through the collection of multi-directional data from hundreds of sensors every second. This data collection helps identify bottlenecks, errors, and inefficiencies in the operator process, optimize press performance, and decrease waste, said the company.
With office and manufacturing facilities in Johannesburg and Cape Town, and a satellite office in Durban, Redfern Labels is a producer of flexographic labels including pressure sensitive labels, printed BOPP and shrink sleeves.
