Commercial label printing specialist, Label Plus has installed a new Screen L350UV SAI inkjet press from Jet Technologies, making it the first press of its kind to go into Queensland.

Label Plus offers a wide variety of self-adhesive labels from its production site in Luscombe, Queensland, with its sister-company (Labelhouse) based in Melbourne, Victoria. Its printing production includes flexography, offset and digital and its diverse customer-base is across pharma, health & beauty, chemical, food, household and wine.

It is now providing its customers with the latest advancement in printing technology following its investment in the new Screen L350UV SAI. James Atkins, general manager of Label Plus said, “Our company’s objective is to achieve complete customer satisfaction in all facets of our operations and to be a preferred supplier within the printing industry. Therefore, our focus is on providing excellent quality, whilst maintaining a flexible approach to production, thus offering short lead times at a competitive price.

“In a challenging industry, Label Plus has evolved into a dynamic organisation, by seeking and embracing new technologies and systems. We’re excited to be elevating our printing quality and customer service even higher, with the addition of the L350UV SAI.”

Sold and installed by labels and packaging specialist Jet Technologies, in partnership with Screen Australia, the L350UV SAI supports printers to significantly increase turn-around speeds for digital printing jobs by automating the process. With its software generated ‘lead in, lead out’ and ‘reverse-feed’ function, the system also works to lower ink and material waste, reducing overhead costs and improving sustainability standards within operations.

According to Jet Technologies, the L350UV SAI is the most flexible and automated label production system in its class. The machine offers seven vibrant colours at 60 meters a minutes, or 50 meters a minute when using white, and is fully supported by local Jet Technologies and Screen factory-trained engineers. Jet says the L350 delivers unrivalled colour reproduction as well as superior scalability, enabling it to meet an even wider variety of market needs.

“We’re excited to have partnered with Label Plus to enhance their digital printing production and provide the company with the necessary edge to remain on top in a competitive industry,” said David Reece, sales director of Jet Technologies. “Installation and training on the L350UV has now been completed and the printing press is not only meeting, but exceeding the well-informed expectations of Label Plus’.”

Label Plus added the L350UV SAI to their digital label production capabilities after a thorough evaluation process of a number of options, including spending time with Jet Technologies in the UK at some impressive L350UV SAI users, in order to properly understand the benefits and how it was being used in another sophisticated market.

The new Screen L350UV SAI installation at Label Plus comes hard on the heels of a similar press going into Unimax in Auckland.
