New Jersey-based Beau Label has purchased PicoJet digital UV inkjet press, marking the first high-volume print system sold by Dantex to a US customer. The press will be installed later this spring.
Launched in 1967, Beau Label is a third-generation, family-owned print services provider, manufacturing labels for numerous industries, including food, beverage, wine and spirits, health and beauty, pet supplies, household products, industrial products, and promotional products.
‘We have built a strong relationship with Dantex over the years and know it well,’ said Vincent (VJ) Melapioni, Beau Label’s president. ‘Investing in a PicoJet is everything and more that we were after. Spectacular print quality, opaque white ink density that surpasses rotary screen without the cost, an attractive price point, and a web width that fits our model and existing tooling. Dantex has proven to be a valued vendor partner to Beau Label, and we look forward to our continued association.’
PicoJet offers a production speed of up to 75m/min (250 ft/min) and can produce more than 9 million linear meters (29.5 million linear ft) of printed labels per year. It is a 5-color printing system with 2.5 picolitre droplet size and an effective resolution of 1200 x 1200 DPI. It also features a recirculating ink system, web cleaner, unique ink delivery system, temperature-controlled backup roller, corona unit, and anti-static bar.
‘We are pleased to be installing our first PicoJet into the US,’ commented Ben Danon, CEO of Dantex. ‘This is a fabulous digital press, and I know that Beau Label will be delighted with the fast production efficiency and the enhanced print quality that it provides. Once again, our digital support team has been able to successfully demonstrate PicoJet’s impressive functionality in a virtual setting.
‘Clearly, VJ and the team at Beau Label were very impressed with the US team’s attention to detail in being able to demonstrate the functionality of the press in what is a globally challenging time. We look forward to installing their new press in April/May later this year.’
