Truepress L350 shipped in for PrintEx15
17th April 2015
The award-winning Truepress Jet L350UV and will make a surprise appearance at PrintEx15 after being shipped in from Japan in a late change of plan by Screen GP Australia.
In what it describes as ‘a late tactical switch,’ Screen will feature a working Truepress L350 on its exhibition stand, which it shares with L350 reseller Jet Technologies.
“I was in Japan last week and the decision was made,” said Peter Scott, Screen Managing Director. “The installation for Australia’s first L350UV machine is underway now and the customer’s name and location will be announced very shortly. The customer has been running live jobs on the Technologies’ demonstration L350UV for several weeks and is totally satisfied with the results, including white ink. Since the label market is buoyant, and we now have our first customer, we will exhibit the L350UV instead of the planned Truepress Jet520 inkjet web machine.”
In order to make the PrintEx build-up deadline, Screen is shipping in the L350UV together with a specialist engineer. The inkjet UV label press features a 350mm maximum web width (322mm print width) and speeds up to 50 metres per minute. It’s designed for high uptime demanding productivity with up to 16.1 sq/m per minute (966 sq/m per hour) of full colour printed label stock delivering industry-leading throughput. Images are rendered as photo-realistic with very smooth gradations and fine detail.
Screen will be showing a roll-to-roll machine at PrintEx but both inline and near-line label finishing systems will be available – either Screen’s JetConverter line or Jet Technologies’ Smag solutions from Gulmen Engineering.
