Cape Town's Label Link has purchased a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+ inkjet press and Rotocon Ecoline RDF 340 line as it makes its first move into digital production.
For richer reproduction of colours, Label Link’s Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+ features the newly supported orange ink, an option along with the standard CMYK and white inks for vivid color functionality. This allows corporate colors that usually require spot colors to be reproduced with complete accuracy, according to Screen.
To support its investment in digital printing, Label Link has taken the Rotocon Ecoline RDF 340 machine for digital label converting and finishing.
Both machines were sold through Rotocon.
Wiaan Stemmet, Label Link's managing member, explained: ‘Our decision was primarily based on print quality, machine up-time, and print speed. Also very important, especially with our entry into digital label production, was local support through Rotocon’s fully-trained service technicians for both Screen and ROTOCON equipment investments. Rotocon has already proven stellar service from the installation and training of our E+L Nyscan 100 percent inspection camera system, also purchased through Rotocon.’
Occupying five units in an industrial park in Brackenfell, a northern suburb of Cape Town, Label Link is a wholesale label printer since 2003 and manufactures purely for resellers.
