Screen GP Australia is exhibiting on a joint stand, E48, with Jet Technologies and the star product will be the Screen Truepress Jet L350UV SAI – the latest in the L350 series of digital label presses.
Peter Scott, Managing Director of Screen GP Australia says: “We’re thrilled to have a working L350UV SAI on the stand – quite a few have been installed already and the reports back from customers are that the results and productivity are sensational.”
The L350UV SAI is a seven-colour inkjet machine that can replicate special colours used in flexographic printing. In addition to CMYK and white inks, Orange and Blue are added and when profiled, the colur gamut expands into hues, especially vivid blues, that other presses struggle to match.
“With Screen’s Equios workflow and special CfX colour management developed in cooperation with Germany’s CGS Oris, the labels coming off the L350UV SAI really pop, and preparing them at make-ready is faster than ever,” says Scott. Both Jet Technologies and Screen personnel will be in attendance on stand E48.

Mimaki Australia will be demonstrating the best of its tried and proven technology matched with Mimaki’s latest innovations. The tried-and-proven equipment includes: UCJV300 LED Print & Cut series. Available in 4 sizes:
|Mimaki's built-in XY slitter is a real bonus
UCJV300-75 (800mm width). UCJV300-107 (1090mm width). UCJV300-130 (1361mm width).
The latest innovations include: A new JV330 series printer with built-in XY Slitter. The JV330 Series also has a new ‘Mimaki Weaving Dot Technology (MWDT)’, which changes the order of ink droplet placement depending on the printing conditions. It suppresses unexpected occurrence of streaks or unevenness of printing caused by slight individual differences in the print head or subtle deviations in adjustment. The ‘XY slitter’ and ‘Media changer’ are two high value-added functions that assist in saving work and labour time, significantly shortening post-process work and reducing space required for manual cutting work.
PacPrint will also be the first look at Mimaki’s new JFX600-2513, the successor model to the JFX500-2131. It is a large-format flatbed LED UV inkjet printer with improved speed (up to +330%) and quality.

PVC-free, recyclable & eco-friendly self-adhesive is the future media for large format printing, says Starleaton.
If you offer a printing service for bespoke artwork, graphics or print designs, printable vinyl will be one of the most-used products. Switching to a PVC-free alternative, or offering customers the option, is a great way to be eco-friendly. Make one simple choice about which print vinyl to choose, just one, and you and your customers can help to start making a difference. With the concern over the use of PVC products growing, many major brands and large cooperations have already opted to use only PVC FREE materials wherever possible.
Starleaton's range of PVC FREE digital print media is the perfect eco-friendly alternative to standard PVC films, with no compromise on quality or longevity they offer an attractive environmentally-friendly status along with a high-quality product suitable for various uses including long term indoor uses and short to mid-term outdoor applications.
Find out how to go PVC-free on stand F24 - Starleaon - at PacPrint!
