Mark Andy and Maxcess Announce Flexographic OEM Agreement on NEW Tidland RD AutoScore

Chesterfield, Missouri USA – June 16, 2023   Mark Andy Inc., a global leader in innovative digital and flexo printing equipment, announces an agreement with Maxcess International to offer their recently introduced Tidland RD AutoScore to the narrow web label and packaging industry.  For a limited time, Mark Andy is the preferred integrator of Tidland RD AutoScore for new flexographic presses. 

The new Tidland RD AutoScore was designed by Maxcess to deliver automatic and repeatable trim width and cut depth positioning for score blades to further optimize job setup, improve safety, reduce pressroom downtime, and increase running speeds across more types of material.  The customer needs addressed by this innovative new product have been a long-standing pain point of press operators. 

“At Mark Andy, we are both humbled and excited to work together with Maxcess to bring the new RD AutoScore to market globally.  The productivity improvements for setup and quick blade changes, combined with added safety and faster running speeds, aligns with our mission to help converters drive productivity and profitability on their presses and in their overall operations. It is a truly a pleasure to work with a global leader like Maxcess and find synergies where it makes good sense for label and converting businesses,” remarked Greg Palm, Senior Vice President for Mark Andy Inc.

Recently, Aaron Powers, Global Product Manager at Maxcess commented, “We’re excited to launch the RD AutoScore, which offers a new level of automation and efficiency for our customers.  With decades of knowledge working with pressure sensitive materials through our RotoMetrics brand, we understand that reducing setup times while maximizing line speeds is paramount to a successful label or specialty converting application. Along with the product’s ability to underscore filmic liners, we believe the Tidland RD AutoScore provides significant value to our customers and will enhance their press productivity and operator safety.”

The new Tidland RD AutoScore offers several benefits including repeatable, quick and precise setup, resulting in less material waste and consistent underscoring of all liner materials, now including films.  Safety is also improved by eliminating the need for on-press adjustments during production. These attributes allow faster running speeds while reducing downtime as well as addressing material variations from job to job.  The RD AutoScore delivers improved and superior performance.  Finally, the Return on Investment (ROI) of this new design is less than a year when compared to manual score systems.  Maxcess’ new Tidland RD AutoScore is a valuable addition to any narrow web printing or converting production floor.
