Printex - Stand 1224
On the back of receiving its first Australian order, Screen GP Australia has made a late tactical switch to its PrintEx presentation and will feature a working Truepress Jet L350UV digital label press on its stand, which it is sharing with the L350 reseller Jet Technologies.
Peter Scott, Screen Managing Director says: “The installation for Australia’s first L350UV machine is underway now and the customer’s name and location will be announced very shortly. The customer has been running live jobs on the Technologies’ demonstration

L350UV for several weeks and is totally satisfied with the results, including white ink. I was in Japan last week and the decision was made, since the label market is buoyant and we now have our first customer; we will exhibit the L350UV instead of the planned Truepress Jet520 inkjet web machine.”
In order to make the PrintEx build-up deadline; Screen is shipping the L350UV together with an engineer. The inkjet UV label press features a 350mm maximum web (322mm print width) width and speed up to 50 metres per minute. As with all Screen equipment, it is designed for high uptime demanding productivity with up to 16.1 sq/m per minute (966 sq/m per hour) of full colour printed labelstock delivering industry-leading throughput. Images are rendered as photo-realistic with very smooth gradations and fine detail.
Screen will be showing a roll-to-roll machine at PrintEx but both inline and near-line label finishing systems will be available; either Screen’s JetConverter line or Jet Technologies’ Smag solutions from Gulmen Engineering.
“It’s an exciting time,” says Scott “for the first time a high volume Australian label producer has chosen an inkjet solution over electrophotographic/toner. It’s the start of a whole new trend, which label printers will be able to see close-up at PrintEx.
