PAPIER-SCHÄFER GMBH SIGNS FOR FIRST GERMAN SCREEN TRUEPRESS JET L350UV+LM AT LABELEXPO 2019

Screen today announces that Papier-Schäfer GmbH, a leading German print provider, has purchased a Truepress Jet L350UV+LM for installation in December 2019, to meet demanding customer needs and to expand its application offering into the food labels market. This is the first L350UV+LM to be purchased in Germany.

According to Jürgen Schäfer, CEO, Papier Schäfer, the company decided to invest in the Truepress Jet L350UV+LM based on Screen’s proven reputation for reliable and flexible solutions. He explains: “The time has come for us to invest in the future. The ability to offer labels for the food industry with indirect food contact, in combination with the industry leading speeds of up to 60 metres per minute, means investing in the L350UV+LM is an obvious choice to expand our capacity.”

The press enables the reproduction of a wider colour gamut, including a greater range of oranges, which Papier Schäfer intends to fully exploit – ensuring the production of high-quality eye-catching labels with high scratch resistance.

Using low migration inks, the Truepress Jet L350UV+LM is engineered to produce premium labels that are compliant with the strict safety standards of food packaging. This allows Papier Schäfer to differentiate its offering and enjoy a new revenue stream.

Schäfer explains, “With over half a century’s industry experience, we need to meet the ever-increasing demands of our customers and that requires quality with the quickest turnaround times. As such, it’s imperative that we continue to invest in solutions that ensure we remain at the forefront of the label market. The L350UV+LM will enable us to do just that by expanding our remit into the food labels segment.”

Steven Polland, Germany Area Sales Manager, concludes: “We are delighted that Papier Schäfer has identified Screen’s market-leading technology as a vital part of its business moving forward. This is a testament to our solutions and our strength in Germany and we hope this will be the first of many L350UV+LM machines in the country – having already sold two in the DACH region. The Truepress Jet L350UV+LM is fast becoming the standard for the food labels sector.”
