Epson is launching a new high productivity, industrial UV digital label press, the SurePress L-6534VW, which it says is competitively priced and complies with the European framework Regulation on Food Contact Materials (FCM).
The new SurePress L-6534VW prints at speeds of up to 50 metres per minute for higher productivity, with improved reliability and usability. It combines PrecisionCore print heads around a central impression drum to provide image quality and precise colour to colour registration.
The company says with its proprietary Nozzle Verification Technology and automatic head maintenance, manual intervention by an operator is minimised.
The SurePress L-6534VW uses low migration CMYK inks, with a high opacity white as standard, and includes an innovative in-line digital varnish for value added label production.
According to Epson a high precision web feed system ensures substrate waste is minimal and provides consistent re-registration on a pre-printed roll. Together with a corona treater, web cleaner and ioniser, the press provides versatility in print production.
In addition, the new model offers faster full colour variable data printing and supports a wide range of label substrates for many different applications.
The latest SurePress will be at PrintEx in August, and Labelexpo Europe in September. It will begin shipping later this year.
