Screen’s high-speed label press – Print21 PacPrint HotPick
27th May 2013
PacPrint hosted the world premier of the revamped commercial version of Screen’s label press, the Truepress Jet L350UV, with the Japanese press manufacturer’s top brass flying into Melbourne for the occasion.
The new version of the UV press, markedly different to the drupa technology preview version, attracted a lot of interest and according to Peter Scott, Screen managing director, there is a sale in the offing. “People are very impressed when they see how fast the press can print and the quality that comes off it,” he said.
Katsuhiko Aoki, president of Screen’s Media & Precision Technology Company, was at PacPrint for two days to be present for the new look press’s unveiling.
“We are honoured to have such senior Screen people here for PacPrint,” said Scott. “It is also an opportunity to acquire excellent technical knowledge on the label press for our local service team prior to its full release.”
The company claims the Truepress Jet L350UV is the fastest digital label press available in the market, rated at over 16 square metres of label stock per minute on a 350mm web.
The new production version of the press has been engineered as either a roll-to-roll press for near-line finishing, or with the ability to feature in-line finishing such as die-cutting, foiling, coating and embossing.
The press is also been sold through Screen reseller Jet Technologies on stand number #1238.
