The EF SYMJET is a symbiotic combination of a flexo press with the fully automated MPS EF platform and an integrated Domino N610i digital UV inkjet label press. Integrated on the EF platform, the MPS EF SYMJET powered by Domino can either be installed as a fully integrated ‘inline’ or as a stand-alone offline digital solution. With the benefits of both flexo and digital printing, the EF SYMJET powered by Domino gives label printers a wide range of new print possibilities.
Combining flexo with innovative digital technologies provides label printers the ability to choose how to run their jobs. For example, they can run all flexo (with the Domino serving as a pass-through), all digital (with the MPS EF serving as the material handling & finishing) or a combination of the two working together in hybrid mode. In hybrid mode, this press provides the best of both worlds…the ability of flexo to add primers, spot colors, UV flexo white, metallics, cold foils, over-varnish, in-line finishing and more; coupled with the efficiency benefits of digital such as the ability to run multiple SKUs, versions, and colors while making changes on the fly…all in a single pass. The EF SYMJET also adds a wide range of inline converting solutions, from automatic quick change die cutting and embossing solutions, to flexible positioning rail unit solutions for lamination, cold foil, hot foil, de-lam/re-lam, etc.
With this hybrid press, label printers will enjoy improved productivity, increased throughput, exceptional quality, and the flexibility of digital combined with the performance of flexo as well as converting, packaged together in a lean manufacturing format. Customers of this hybrid press can utilize existing tooling and watch their business grow with improved margins on their current business, while generating opportunities in new markets.
Digital Printing is evolving and hybrid solutions will become a significant part of the future of label printing. The partnership between MPS and Domino is unique in providing the market with excellence from two well-established companies that have world-class offerings. MPS is well known globally for high-end operator-friendly material handling, print, and converting solutions. Domino is a world-leader in inkjet technology providing best-in-class digital printing solutions for both monochrome and color applications.
