MPS Systems B.V., the globally renowned Dutch-based printing press manufacturer, is set to launch an innovation aimed at promoting interaction between MPS printing presses and Management Information Systems (MIS). Labelled ‘talk to me’ – the new MPS connectivity technology allows for real-time data exchange and control at any given moment.

Are You Ready For The Next Big Step In Printing Productivity

Increased printing productivity
The ‘talk to me’ concept is a protocol for exchanging data between Management Information Systems and MPS printing presses, to supply real-time information required for companies to be truly productive and remain competitive. In addition to the regular MIS interface, press operators can be given access to extended ‘anytime, anywhere’ functionality via the specially developed ‘talk to me’ app, easily installed on any Android or iOS smartphone or tablet.

Bert van den Brink, co-founder and technical director at MPS explained the development of ‘talk to me’ is a logical consequence of MPS’ corporate philosophy: “Our promise to the market is being ‘Operator Focused, Results Driven’. The best way to achieve maximum printing productivity is to ensure that operators have the tools and freedom to get the most out of their machines. With ‘talk to me’ we offer just that. I am confident that through constant communication with their printing presses, operators will optimize their performance and, in the process, enjoy increased job satisfaction.”

Data to be exchanged from the MIS to press includes the customer name, press run, colour sequence, tooling, material type and thickness, printing plate code and planning (job queue). Data from the press to MIS consists of the operator, printing speed, metres/yards printed (order status), waste produced (waste sheets), set-up and printing time.

Talk To Me App

Debut at Labelexpo Europe
The ‘talk to me’ concept and app will be officially premiered at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe 2017, 25 - 28 September at Brussels Expo on MPS stand 11C20. Daily live demonstrations of the connectivity concept will be given on the fully automated MPS EF multi-substrate press at the MPS stand.

“I invite anyone interested to come see the launch at Labelexpo in September, where we will demonstrate this truly groundbreaking connectivity technology and explain its intricacies,” concluded Van den Brink.

MPS will also display a second fully equipped EF press at the Automation Arena (hall 11), organized by Tarsus. The Automation Arena will include two automated press lines for digital and conventional label production, from job creation through to pre-press, printing, finishing and invoicing.
