Screen Graphic Solutions has taken the wraps off its new Truepress Jet L350UV SAI inkjet system for label printing, making its global debut at Labelexpo Europe 2019.
The press is an upgrade from the Truepress Jet L350UV and features improved colour reproduction and scalability, enabling it to meet a wide variety of market needs.
Screen Australia managing director Peter Scott said since the release of the Truepress Jet L350UV, adoption has of short runs has been accelerating, creating a need for better print quality than ever before.
“So, the Truepress Jet L350UV SAI enables significantly richer colour expression and is available in a line-up of four models that can be selected according to the production environment,” he said.
The units will come in the S, E, Z and LM models, with the units featuring additional slots for mounting inkjet printheads. Along with CMYK, most of the units can be loaded with white, orange and blue inks for a total of seven colours (the LM model excludes blue).
The system also features proprietary colour management technologies developed in collaboration with CGS Publishing Technologies International, providing a wider range of colour expressions.
The flagship Z model is also expected to deliver print speeds of up to 80m per minute.
The high-end Z model is joined by an entry-level model with reduced installation costs (E), a standard model (S) and a dedicated model for food labels (LM). Each of these four systems can be upgraded on-site with additional colours.
“The line-up provides printing companies with the a model for current application while also allowing them to flexibly expand functionality as their operations grow. The eighth extra printhead slot will enable companies to use new inks, varnish or a primer of the future,” Scott said.
“SAI represents stable print quality, accurate colour reproduction and integration with workflows and other systems, which means you get higher productivity, the ability to get into different applications, shorter runs and variable data,” he added.
Screen will launch the S, E, Z and LM models sequentially from January 2020.
