Screen to showcase packaging portfolio at Labelexpo

Truepress Jet L350UV digital UV label press makes European debut alongside sector-specific CTP and software

Screen shows its commitment to the label and packaging markets by showcasing new digital label printing, flexo plate-making, innovative board packaging applications and workflow technologies in its expanded portfolio of label and package printing-related products at Labelexpo 2013 (24-27thSeptember, Brussels).

The Truepress Jet L350UV digital label press makes its European commercial debut at the show where it is beingdemonstrated by both Screen (Stand 9G50) and European reseller Dantex (Stand 5D20).

Screen developed the Truepress Jet L350UV to address the exploding demand from major brands for value-added packaging that increase product differentiation. Shown as an early prototype at drupa 2012, this innovative inkjet label printing system boasts photo-realistic quality, fast job turnarounds and stable output that requires almost no daily maintenance. The new press prints widths up to 322mm (12.6in) and prints at a top speed of 50m (164ft) per minute. It leads the industry as an inkjet printing system for labels with productivity of 16.1sqm (173.2sqft) per minute. Lamination, die cutting and other post-press processing devices can be connected inline to automate label production from beginning to end.

Combined with advanced colour management technology based on Screen’s EQUIOS universal workflow, the Truepress Jet L350UV creates smooth, vivid gradations. To provide a wider colour gamut than is typical with the four-colour process, the Truepress Jet L350UV uses Screen’s proprietary high-definition UV inks. Optional opaque white ink further boosts colour vibrancy while enhancing application versatility by allowing printing on transparent film and metallic foil. The press incorporates single-pass greyscale piezo printheads with a minimum droplet size of 3 picolitres. Printing resolutions of 600 x 600dpi combined with the very small droplet size gives sharp, well-defined images and text.

The press is engineered as either a roll-to-roll press for near-line finishing, or with the ability to feature automated in-line finishing such as lamination, die-cutting, foiling, coating and embossing etc.

President of Screen Europe, Brian Filler, said: “Screen is committed to providing the packaging industry with a choice high-quality and ultra-reliable imaging and digital printing solutions that deliver flexibility, low cost of ownership and a swift return on investment. The Truepress Jet L350UV is a superb digital press designed to meet the needs of the market to produce highly competitive high-quality, high-value labels.”

Alongside the web-fed Truepress Jet L350UV for label printing, Screen products for packaging applications include the EQUIOS workflow, a range of thermal PlateRite CTP devices for both flexo and offset printing and the Truepress JetSX sheet-fed B2 digital label press for personalised carton and label printing.
