Rotocon is set to provide full-service for two previously owned MPS flexo printing presses destined for South Africa.

The two MPS flexo presses, EF 330 with ten colours and EP 430 with eight colours, will be installed at separate label printers in Johannesburg.

The company has agreed to offer full-service of the presses, right from procurement to complete installation and training.

“For many years, Rotocon has provided a complete door-to-door service of sourcing used presses and finishing machines for South African label printers.”

Rotocon sales director Patrick Aengenvoort, who is overseeing the sale of the two presses, carried out an on-site inspection and printing test prior to shipment.

Aengenvoort said: “For many years, Rotocon has provided a complete door-to-door service of sourcing used presses and finishing machines for South African label printers.

“Through our extensive international network, we have access to well-maintained equipment from reputable brands that offer a viable lower-cost alternative for label production and finishing.”

The company will send a service technician on-site to dismantle the machine and oversee the crating and shipping.

Once imported by Rotocon, the service technician will offer re-installation of the equipment and comprehensive operator training.

Developed by Dutch UV flexo press manufacturer MPS Systems, the EF press is a highly automated multi-substrate flexo press, specifically developed for label production and flexible packaging printing.

Offering superior flexibility, the EF allows operators to maximise press performance due to its ease of operation and reliability.

The press is equipped with UV, hot-air and LED drying technology.

It enables users to print on different substrates, such as thin film, paper, cartonboard, shrink sleeves, inmould, lamitube and flexible packaging.

Rotocon is a consulting and service provider catering to South African label converters in the narrow web industry.

It represents various brands, including ROTOCONTROL, MPS, Wink Stanzwerkzeuge, Screen, Pantec GS Systems, Matho, AVT, and Erhardt+Leimer.
