In a bid to stay a step ahead of the competition and ‘future proof’ its business, UK trade printer Hine Labels has invested in a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM press, its second Screen UV inkjet press to-date. Looking for additional capacity to serve growing demand, owner Bill Hine signed the deal at Labelexpo, making it the second sale of the Low Migration L350UV+LM press in the UK.
According to Hine “pure common sense” drove the decision, he explains, “We need the additional capacity, business is good and our experience with the Truepress Jet L350UV we already have has been very good. In fact, the reliability of the equipment has been absolutely amazing, so it just makes sense to have another.”
Hine Labels has been supplying labels to printers for over 30 years. As a trade printer, the markets served are varied and already include food packaging. “The L350UV press already meets the requirements of the market, however should legislation change, we will be prepared for it,” Hine states, “Meanwhile, we will have an extremely productive press, we’ll be able to print digitally onto thinner substrates and deliver an even faster service for our customers.”
The new Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM delivers reliable print speeds of up to 60 meters per minute whilst proprietary Screen inkjet printhead technology ensures outstanding quality even at the highest speeds. The addition of a chill roller to the press expands the versatility and flexibility of material types that can be supported, including thin and heat sensitive film, which significantly increases the range of packaging and label applications that can be printed. Hine Labels’ press will also come with Screen Equios Universal Workflow, drawing on Screen’s extensive prepress and printing knowledge, to maximise the performance of its cutting-edge UV inkjet technology.
“The fact that Hine Labels is a returning customer means a great deal, we’re delighted to see their business go from strength to strength and we’re proud they’ve chosen Screen to be a part of that,” adds Bui Burke, Senior Vice President Sales at Screen Europe.
