    Longer runs: Latest Screen Truepress is being installed at the Jet Technologies Demonstration Centre

The Jet Technologies Demonstration Centre in Sydney will soon be home to the latest Screen Truepress Jet L350UV SAI S digital label press, which with longer-run capability is targeting flexo jobs.

According to Jet Technologies, the new inkjet label printing system now comes with a 20 per cent boost in throughput for colour printing, compared to the previous model, and a productivity increase of 67 per cent with its highest opacity white printing method.

The company says other features include improved quality and stability, easy application and board application, and advanced registration accuracy for micro-droplet support security printing.

David Reece, sales director, Jet Technologies, said, “We are excited to welcome this new innovation to the ANZ market. We now already have clients printing 20,000 lineal metre runs, and with the substantial improvements to productivity experienced from the L350OV SAI series, users can now aim for even larger print runs that have, until recently, been restricted to the domain of flexo.”

Jet says the addition of orange and blue to the current configuration, along with CGS colour matching using CxF data, enables printers to achieve a wide colour gamut.

It also claims the new press achieves higher levels of repeatability, saying the extra colours provide a noticeable reduction in ink usage.

Commenting on the precision engineering, Peter Scott, managing director of Screen GP, said, “The current installations in Australia and New Zealand report uptime in the range of 92-97 per cent, including the oldest installations that are approaching five years.” 

“The aspect of reliability and intelligent performance delivered by the L350UV is something we are most proud of.

“Any press will be reliable when it is new, but to maintain this high level of performance after many years, that is what Screen is renowned for.”

The L350UV SAI S model being installed at Jet Technologies Demonstration Centre will be operational by the end of the month.

 Jet Technologies is a member of the Australian Packaging & Processing Machinery Association (APPMA).
