Melbourne-based label specialist, Sticky Labels, has optimised its digital operations by upgrading to the latest automated label production system – the Screen L350UV SAI Inkjet Series.
Sold and deployed by Screen’s long-term partner, Jet Technologies, the latest SAI Series is an upgrade from the previously deployed Screen L350UV V1+ – now featuring improved colour reproduction and scalability to benefit Sticky Labels’ range of FMCG customers.
With a strong history in commercial printing for FMCG product lines, including food and beverage, health and beauty, and cleaning brands, Sticky Labels’ upgrade to the SAI will enable its business to deliver high quality labels to customers faster, whilst also boosting operational productivity.
This is something that the business said was increasingly vital during high-demand peaks experienced throughout the pandemic.
Sticky Labels managing director Justine McEwan said, “Our first investment in the L350UV+ series gave us the platform we needed to meet our growth ambitions as a business, whilst optimising our digital printing capabilities and productivity during a time where demand was spiking due to COVID-19.
“With this growth, it was only natural that we made the move to the latest SAI model – which will further streamline our digital capacity, with even better-quality finishes and the fastest production rates on the market.
“This upgraded digital label press supports our focus on delivering the best customer service, taking our business to a new level and enabling us to compete against larger players in the industry.”
The latest Screen L350UV SAI Inkjet Series SAI supports printers by significantly increasing turn-around speeds for digital printing jobs by automating the process.
With its software generated ‘lead in, lead out’ and ‘reverse-feed’ function, the system also works to considerably lower ink and material waste, reducing overhead costs and improving sustainability standards within operations.
Jet Technologies sales director David Reece said, “The L350UV SAI Series’ ability to print on a diversity of local and imported materials has positioned it as one of the most innovative and efficient automated label production printers available today.
“Even more so, with improved productivity rates of up to 60 per cent compared to the previous model, the SAI is one of the fastest solutions on the market, with the highest-quality results. We’re incredibly pleased to see Sticky Labels further its digital innovation by upgrading to this latest model.”
