Mark Andy, Rotoflex
Celebrate Labelexpo Success
Mark Andy and Rotoflex are assessing the positive
results experienced from this year’s Labelexpo,
which was held in September in Rosemont, Illinois.
Labelexpo offered an opportunity for the company
to put its latest technology designs on display. Quick
Change Die Cut (QCDC) and ProLED curing tech-
nologies were featured on the Mark Andy Perfor-
mance Series machines, generating the sale of 19
new Performance Series presses globally. The brand
also used this platform to launch the SRL 4.0, a nar-
row-web digital press for converters interested in ex-
panding their capabilities.This new foray into digital
has proven beneficial for the company, with interest
in the product extremely high, according to Mark
Andy, and multiple orders already on the books.
In addition to newer presses, Mark Andy continues
to enjoy success with the 2200 machine. Since the
show, more than 12 2200s have been sold globally.
The press has been in production at Mark Andy since
the 1980s and is reportedly the most installed nar-
row-web machine in the world.
Rotoflex sold 12 machines at the show. Rotoflex in-
troduced the recently redesigned VLI line at Labelex-
po, showcasing advanced web tension management
ideal for thin films and flexible packaging require-
ments. The VSI rewinder and DSI die-cutter were on
display as well.
