Screen to launch two more inkjet label presses

Screen has announced two new versions of its Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet label press, including a high speed machine and a version for the food packaging market.

The Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM uses low migration inks and nitrogen purging for printing food packaging labels

Screen says that the L350UV+ has been developed for high-end, high-speed label production. It runs at up to 60 meters per minute, an improvement on the existing model’s 50mpm. As well as C, M, Y, K and white inks, it also supports a new orange ink that allows for a wider colour gamut. There’s also an optional chill roller for cooling thin substrates that are particularly susceptible to the heat generated by the UV lamp, such as wrappers used on PET bottles.

The second press, the L350UV+LM, is built on the same platform with all the same features but in addition it uses low migration inks for food-compliant packaging. To ensure that the inks cure fully, the press uses a nitrogen purge mechanism.

Screen has been showing off these new presses to customers and says that both presses will be commercially launched at the Label Expo show in September. The original L350UV was launched at the 2013 show and is available in both a four-colour and five-colour version with the addition of white ink.
