Ample Industries invests in Screen’s Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet digital label press

PKBR Staff Writer Published 12 June 2018

US-based full service label converter Ample Industries has installed a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet digital label press, to boost its production capacity.

Ample is engaged in providing custom and specialty labels for food, beverage, wine, pharmaceuticals and supplements along with non-prime label applications. It converts a wide range of labels and packaging for all sizes of customers across the US.

Ample Label vice-president Natalie Spradlin said: “The SCREEN technology is impressive. It’s fast. The print quality is above and beyond our previous digital experience. And it’s easy to use.

“We needed a solution that could hit our quality targets, meet the short-to-medium run job needs and get them done quickly.

The Truepress Jet L350UV is designed to have a peak printing speed of 164 feet per minute (or 173.2 square feet of printed labels per minute). It utilizes SCREEN's high-definition UV inks.

Spradlin added: “SCREEN passed all our tests, including the problem gradient file with flying colors! Not so with the other press manufacturers.

“SCREEN’s test results were a definite stand-out!”

The press also offers optional opaque white ink allows printing on transparent film and metallic foil.

Spradlin further said: “It is truly excellent and makes many of the label designs we print very exciting.”

Additionally, the Truepress Jet L350UV provides cost-effective short to medium runs for trial marketing, versioning and personalization of decorative pressure-sensitive labels.

Earlier this year, UK-based self-adhesive label manufacturer Hine Labels purchased a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM label press in a bid to ‘future-proof’ its business.

The investment in the second Screen UV inkjet press was part of the Hine Labels’ plan to stay a step ahead of the competition and serve the growing labels demand.

With a print speed of up to 60 meters per minute, the new Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM features Screen inkjet printhead technology which ensures enhanced quality even at the highest speeds, Screen Europe said.
