Epson’s latest UV inkjet digital label press, the SurePress L-6534VW, will now be able to run in-line with a GM LUW500 jumbo roll unwinder, an AVT or BST inspection station, and a GM DC330 finishing line.
The company has extended its partnership with GM, providing an integrated, productive and streamlined label printing and finishing solution to meet high volume label production demands.
This new capability is targeted at label converters looking to improve operational efficiency for longer print runs, while maintaining the versatility needed for shorter print jobs.
New in-line connection options available for the SurePress L-6534VW include:
- Jumbo unwinder – By minimising operator intervention, the GM LUW500 maximises productivity. The unwind module is fully synchronised to the press with stepless electronic tension setting, roll pick up from the floor and an easy-to-use graphic touch screen.
- Inspection system – Available from AVT or BST, inspection systems provide additional support for process control and quality assurance where necessary, to meet specific production demands.
- In-line finisher –TheGM DC330 finisher is capable of high-speed production. It can be operated as a fully integrated in-line converter or off-line for flexible finishing options.
Epson Australia general manager of marketing Bruce Bealby said, “The result of over 10 years’ collaboration with GM, these innovative and proven connection options for our SurePress UV inkjet digital presses will provide an even more productive solution for streamlined, end-to-end, high volume label production. It’s an exciting development that we are confident will open even greater possibilities for our customers.”
