Mark Andy has released a suite of new features on its digital press line, Digital Pro. The production digital machine launched in August 2019 with Digital Pro 1, a roll to roll solution and Digital Pro 3, an inline digital hybrid press with a single flexo station and die cutting. This product line was built to tackle short run work, and is now capable of additional converting functionalities, reinforcing the OEM’s commitment to profitable digital printing.
The health and safety of our employees and customers are always our highest priority. We are thankful that even in these uncertain times that we are still able to be doing everything we can to support our customers, even if that means getting a little creative in the Mark Andy Demo Centers in both Warsaw and St. Louis.
As digital printing technology is more widely adapted across the board in pressrooms, knowledge gaps can occur more often than with tried and true technology, like flexo printing. Thankfully for converters, Mark Andy has a dedicated staff of engineers, press operators, installation technicians, field service technicians and technical phone support to serve our digital presses in the field.
Specialized Marking Systems, an Ontario based converter has upgraded its Digital One to the new Mark Andy Digital Pro engine to increase capacity and expand its overall digital label business. Over a year post-installation of the Digital One, the choice to upgrade to the new engine was made with the success of the Digital Pro predecessor in mind.
A Digital Series HD was installed at Cypress Multigraphics in September 2018
One of the most influential label companies in North America has realized success with a Mark Andy Digital Series HD. Cypress Multigraphics, located in Tinley Park, Illinois purchased the solution in the summer of 2018 and took delivery in late September, directly following Labelexpo Americas.
Market shifts towards seasonal goods, versioning, VDP, personalization, and more have brand owners demanding short run work and faster lead times. This leaves many converters having to outsource short run work, producing them inefficiently on full production flexo presses, or losing business in general. All sounding too familiar?
Imagine buying a brand-new car and never taking the time to get its oil changed, ultimately leading to the entire engine shutting down and having to be replaced. Something as simple and easy as getting a car inspected by a mechanic every few months keeps it running for hundreds of thousands of miles.

Three label converters joined Label & Narrow Web for a webinar to discuss their journey into digital hybrid printing. Adcraft Labels, Blair Labeling, and Diversified Labeling Solutions (DLS) took time to talk through their digital journey, and explain why they chose a particular digital hybrid solution.
Brand strategy is driving SKU proliferation due to differentiation, market testing, versioning, VDP, personalization, and the list goes on. As brands are driving the shift for shorter run sizes and faster lead times, it’s clear that digital printing plays a key role in today’s label and package printing environment.
Mark Andy, a leader in narrow-web printing and converting solutions, will host an Open House at its European headquarters in Warsaw, Poland, 5-7 April, 2017.
Every digital journey has a different beginning; a different reason or “pain” that prompts the search for a new hybrid pressroom addition.
