SCREEN INTRODUCES JETCONVERTER FOR LABEL SECTOR
25th May 2015
Screen GP Australia has announced the release of an advanced label converting line to partner with its Truepress Jet L350UV digital label press. Named the JetConverter L350, it is a modular device that can include slitting, die-cutting, matrix stripping, corona treatment, varnish, up to two flexo units, laminate, tinting, cold foil and up to twelve auto-slitting knives. Labels rewound on the JetConverter L350 are finished and ready to ship to customers.
Since the release of the Truepress Jet L350UV, Screen has examined the need for its own label finishing system and the result is the JetConverter L350. Many options can be built into a JetConverter, both in the factory and in the field as upgrades.
Peter Scott, Screen GP Australia Managing Director says: “Because of the unique nature of every label printer’s requirements, JetConverters will be built to order. We are delighted to offer world - leading label converting technology as the perfect partner for our Truepress Jet L350.”
Screen’s JetConverter L350 matches the Truepress Jet L350UV’s 350mm maximum web width and will take widths down to 200mm. Offline it runs at 64 metres per minute for increased finishing output. When the inline connection is available from June 2015, speed is matched to the press at 50 metres per minute.
“Despite its comprehensive converting capabilities, the JetConverter is surprisingly easy to operate,” says Scott, “with all key settings made on the front panel LCD screen.”
Screen displayed a large backlit image of the JetConverter at the recent PrintEx exhibition, behind the working demonstration of the Truepress Jet L350UV.
The Screen JetConverter L350 is available through Jet Technologies www.jet-ap.com who are also distributors of the Screen Truepress Jet L350UV digital label press.
