Epson Australia is all set to show its latest label printing offering with the introduction of the SurePress L-4733AW water-based resin ink digital label press, with improved automation. The company says this new addition to the SurePress line offers higher levels of print quality, consistency, flexibility and value for label converters, specialty printers and vertical manufacturers.

The SurePress L-4733AW builds on the success of its predecessor, the L-4533AW, one of the best selling digital inkjet label presses on the market today. It offers advanced automation and unattended printing features, higher productivity with improved print speed on film and support for printing on a wider range of substrates. An optional inline spectrometer is also available.
Epson says that label converters and specialty printers are looking for solutions that are simple and cost-effective to operate and maintain, and can deliver on stable, predictable production. Epson enhanced its industrial SurePress line-up by adding new capabilities to the L-4733AW which can help businesses save on both upfront costs and maintenance. These advancements come without compromising simple operation and maintenance, production or print quality.
The SurePress L-4733AW delivers on automation and ease of use. Virtually automatic, requiring no manual cleaning of the printhead surface, the L-4733AW is primed for unattended printing. With the optional SureSpectro AS-4000 inline spectrometer for real-time automated measurements to speed profiling and ensure consistent output for multi-plant networks, the L-4733AW delivers accurate spot colours and gradients required for brand-quality colour prime labels and packaging.
The L-4733AW supports a range of substrates, including off-the-shelf flexo materials, without the need to surface prime. Its inks meet the latest safety standards and regulations, such as REACH, and deliver high-quality images, making it a versatile press ideal for converters focusing on food and beverage and health and beauty labels.
Epson’s SurePress digital label press systems are engineered with Epson components including ink, printheads, LED pinning and curing and use an Epson Industrial Robotic Controller to manage the press rather than a PC, further enhancing reliability and stability.
Print resolutions are: 720 x 720 dpi (for paper) and 1440 x 720 dpi (for film) and throughput speed is up to 5 metres per minute. Web width is from 80mm to 334mm, adjustable and the colour inkset is: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Standard Black or Matte Black, Orange, Green & White.
The SurePress L-4733AW is available now via authorised Epson resellers in Australia and New Zealand.
