New Screen mini label press makes debut at AUSPACK in March21-Feb-2017 Screen GP Managing Director is delighted with the early test runs on his new Truepress Jet L250AQ digital label machine. The futuristic-looking device is now installed at Screen’s Macquarie Park, NSW showroom where both reseller Jet Technologies and Screen personnel have been putting it through its paces prior to official roll-out.
Label printers can get their first look at the L250AQ when Jet Technologies takes the new press to Auspack, Australasia’s leading processing and packaging exhibition held March 7 to 10, at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.”
“Our first priority is to test a wide variety of self-adhesive stocks and come up with a recommended list. The L250AQ uses aqueous inks so we must make sure labelstock is compatible. So far we have printed outstanding results on paper, PET, PP, silver PET film and continue to test others,” says Scott.
He adds: “The machine came out-of-the-box and quickly ramped up into production; it’s very simple and intuitive to operate with a print interface that takes files directly from Illustrator etcetera. Colours are really vibrant and fine text, barcodes and QR codes are rendered very precisely due to the 1600dpi resolution and fine 1.8 picolitre ink droplet size.”
Screen’s L250AQ is a CMYK – only device but customers wanting white ink and other colours can look at the bigger L350UV at Jet Technologies’ Roseberry, NSW headquarters.
Scott says: “The L250AQ is ideal for printing pre-kiss cut label stocks, which now come in a variety of shapes. This saves the printer from investing in rotary die-cutters. The best part is the low investment price, starting at below $100,000. It is fully backed by Screen GP service and is very well built, with proper unwind/rewind and web tension control. Software will even calculate the exact cost-per-label produced.”
Demonstrations can be booked both through either Jet Technologies or Screen GP. Jet Technologies Auspack stand is 475 at the far end of the Sydney Showground main hall.
