Specialist importer and distributor of products to the rigid and flexible packaging industry, Jet Technologies, has deployed a new solution for customised printing company, SL&CS Promotions.
The solution deployed is a Screen GP UV inkjet printing press, the Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet label press, and is an upgrade for the NSW Central Coast-based company.
SL&CS has been running a UV inkjet printing press for a number of years to print labels and tags – such as industrial stickers, electrical test tags, and promotional labels – for small to large businesses across Australia.
But the need for increased printing speed, printing press reliability and improved quality led to the decision by SL&CS Promotions to update its printing press.
The L350UV inkjet press for narrow web boasts printing speeds of 60 meters per minute, the ability to run a wide variety of existing and new materials from 100mm-350 mm widths, durability and lightfastness of inks, and high print quality.
SL&CS Promotions owner Shane Leer said important factors for SL&CS in choosing to partner with Jet Technologies and Screen GP were the availability of local support, future product developments and proven installation experience.
“Jet Technologies and Screen GP couldn’t have been more helpful. Their attention to detail from the trialling phase right through to installation and training, meant the machine was delivered installed, training commenced quickly, and we were producing work for customers within just two weeks,” he said.
“It’s nice to work with companies that do not over sell and deliver everything that was promised.”
Jet Technologies sales director David Reece said the successful upgrade was made with the combined support from Screen GP’s engineering and technical service and Jet Technologies’ market knowledge in the flexographic market.
“Shane at SL&CS got the whole production team involved in the process of evaluating the printing solutions available with Jet Technologies and Screen GP, as it was important that an investment was made in the option that worked not just for the business, but most importantly for those on the ground operating the printer,” Reece said.
