SCREEN and Nilpeter have partnered to meet the requirements of the label and packaging industry with stable and high-quality combination printing.
At Labelexpo Europe 2023, the two companies will introduce an innovative in-line solution to meet the increasing demand in integrated digital printing and embellishment. The new digital integrated solution combines SCREENS’s new Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI technology with Nilpeter’s state-of-the-art FA-Line flexo platform. The Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI S unit offers up to seven digital colours, enabling expanded gamut along with high performance white printing. Integrated with Nilpeter’s platform-based FA-Line and embellishment solutions, the in-line solution facilitates an efficient production of value-added labels.
SCREEN has also announced the prototype development of an in-line inkjet digital primer for its flagship label printing press, the Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI, which will be on display as a world first during Labelexpo Europe 2023. This ground-breaking feature addresses one of the biggest challenges in UV inkjet digital printing, namely poor ink adhesion on certain substrates.
Traditionally, the issue of poor ink adhesion has been resolved through offline pre-priming of the substrate before printing labels. However, SCREEN’s cutting-edge development eliminates this extra step by incorporating an in-line digital primer directly inside its Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI digital printing press. This innovative solution not only saves time and resources but could also deliver superior ink adhesion on a wide range of substrates and better print quality that enhances visual appeal and brand impact.
Visitors will have the opportunity to witness this game-changing technology in action and experience first-hand its transformative impact on label printing.
