For 25 years, MPS has constantly advanced their presses with innovative technologies in response to customer feedback, market demand, and industry developments.

The MPS next generation EF flexo platform provides technology enhancements and new features in connectivity, for even better press performance and output.

MPS was one of the first to provide innovative technologies for direct-drive machines and has patented a wide range of innovative designs. This commitment to innovation is reflected in the design and capabilities of its EF next generation press.

“By going beyond the machine in product innovation and intensive cooperation with our customers, MPS continually improves the printing process and operator experience,” said Atze Bosma, CEO of MPS Systems. “It’s in our DNA.”

As a fully automated multi-substrate flexo press ready for 24 x 7 operations, the EF has provided printers years of high-level automation, flexibility, connectivity, and ease of operation.

Based on the successful foundation of six previous EF platform generations, including MPS innovations such as Crisp. Dot Technology, Non-stop Print Change, and the Ultraflex Rail System, many enhancements were made to the next generation EF machine.

These improved features include the MPS designed slide-out ink drawer for faster changeovers as standard on all machines, MPS E-sleeve with quick release, advanced job memory, M2M (Mark-to-Mark) register, extended web width to 580mm, improved robust rail units, standard finger bar safety protection, and ergonomic improvements.

For full servo driven automation of all print pressure settings, the Advanced Automation option is available.

To help customers improve their press performance, MPS added these new features to the EF platform: MPSConnect, operational & management dashboards, and user management/personalized performance.

MPSConnect provides ongoing performance monitoring of the printing press through sensor technology combined with the Internet of Things, for real-time data collection and valuable 24×7 fact-based insights.

From this collected data, MPS experts help customers make continuous performance improvements in waste, speed, and uptime to increase their competitive advantages and maximize their profits. The operational dashboard provides the operator easy access to information such as press performance, manuals, and videos about best practices. The management
