SCREEN’S JETCONVERTER NOW AVAILABLE AS INLINE OPTION
30th July 2015
Screen GP Australia is pleased to announce that, at Labelexpo, Brussels in September, Screen Europe will demonstrate the latest version of the Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet label press, complete with inline finishing using the recently announced JetConverter L350; in addition to other new features.
The Screen JetConverter L350 – previously only available as a near-line unit - is a modular finishing solution equipped with many standard functions for label converting including varnishing, lamination, die-cutting, matrix rewind and slitting. Advantages such as decreased times for setup and adjustment and reduced paper wastage are achieved by a shorter web path. Flexo coating and cold foil stations can also be added.
“Many prospective customers have enquired about the inline version of JetConverter,” says Screen GP Australia Managing Director Peter Scott; “There is definitely demand for this configuration as well as separate reel-to-reel printing with offline converting and finishing.”
The Truepress Jet L350UV uses Screen’s high-definition CMYK+white UV inks and delivers photo-realistic quality at 50m/minute (16 sqm/min) on web widths up to 350mm. The press incorporates single-pass greyscale piezo printheads with a minimum droplet size of 3 picolitres. The first one in ANZ was installed at Sydney’s DS Labels in April.
A new link to CERM (MIS) allows JDF communication to the Screen EQUIOS digital front end to eliminate many repetitive manual tasks and automating planning and step & repeat routines. The resultant improvement in efficiency cuts production time still further and enables over 25 short run jobs per shift. Information is fed back live to a digital dash board displaying production data, printing speeds and metres printed for all scheduled jobs.
The Vivid Color Mode, which allows the Truepress JetL350UV to further extend its colour gamut that improves and simplifies the process of attaining spot colour values using just a simplified four-colour ink set; without the need for spot colour inks.
Already recognised as achieving the smoothest gradations, sharpest detail with the thinnest ink lay down compared to other inkjet label devices, the EQUIOS DFE’s new text resolution function offers HD quality text sharpness by reducing ink spread across the whole job or on selected elements - even on uncoated paper substrates.
Labelexpo Europe is popular with label printers from the ANZ region and this year will be held from September 20 to October 2 at Brussels Expo. Screen Europe’s stand is 9B30. Representatives from Screen’s Australian dealer Jet Technologies will be present.
