SCREEN and Jet Technologies to demonstrate Truepress L350UV SAI, 7-colour label press at Pacprint 21
Screen GP Australia is exhibiting on a joint stand, E48, with Jet Technologies and the star product will be the Screen Truepress Jet L350UV SAI – the latest in the L350 series of digital label presses.
Peter Scott, Managing Director of Screen GP Australia says: “We’re thrilled to have a working L350UV SAI on the stand – a few have been installed already and the reports back from customers are that the results and productivity are sensational.”
The L350UV SAI is a seven-colour inkjet machine that can replicate special colours used in flexographic printing. In addition to CMYK and white inks, Orange and Blue are added and when profiled, the colur gamut expands into hues, especially vivid blues, that other presses struggle to match.
“With Screen’s Equios workflow and special CfX colour management developed in cooperation with Germany’s CGS Oris, the labels coming off the L350UV SAI really pop, and preparing them at make-ready is faster than ever,” says Scott.
Sensational colour is not the only advancement in the L350 series. Productivity has increased 66% when using white ink – notorious for slowing down digital presses. When running white, for transparent labels as an example, Screen’s L350UV SAI still hums along at 50 metres per minute, only ten metres per minute slower than its maximum speed.
Flexo’s Digital Friend
“Most SAI installations so far have gone into printers who also run flexo presses,” says Scott. “It really is ‘Flexo’s Digital Friend’ in that it can handle the shorter runs and variable content that flexo’s longer prepress and make-ready would render uneconomical. With the seven-colour configuration it can also match anything printed flexographically, and embellishes such as hot/cold foil, emboss and lamination can be achieved on near-line finishers such as Prati and ABG.”
Scott adds: “Of course we won’t forget Screen’s wide range of CtP for both offset and flexo. Screen has CtP from 4-page B2 all the way up to 48-page VLF suitable for Goss and manroland 96-page presses. While we won’t have a CtP machine on the stand, there will be plenty of information. We will also feature samples from our continuous feed Truepress Jet 520HD high-definition web press, with brilliant colour samples printed on standard offset stocks.”
There will be a couple of surprises Screen will save for the PacPrint show itself – ink innovation for example. “Best of all, Jet and ourselves will have barista-quality coffee on the stand so I invite visitors to take the weight off of their feet and enjoy a cuppa with us,” smiles Scott.
