Screen Americas has its first US sale of the Truepress Jet L350UV SAI to Lion Labels, located in South Easton, Massachusetts; Lion Labels purchased the press to increase its capacity.
According to Screen, the Truepress Jet L350UV series was developed to meet the label industry’s growing need for high-quality, short-run printing. The Truepress Jet L350UV SAI, the most recent iteration of the series, is a complement to Lion Labels’ existing technology, which includes a digital toner-based press and conventional flexographic presses. With the purchase of a UV inkjet label press from Screen, Lion Labels aspires to grow its business with quicker turnaround times.
Prior to the purchase, Screen Americas hosted Lion Labels at its facility in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, so that its pressroom operators and managers could operate the technology as well as examine some samples of the finished product.
'Having more options in its portfolio will lead to the increased capacity that Lion Labels is looking for,' said Anton Kotesky, retail sales manager for Screen Americas’ packaging division and the person who presented the press to Lion Labels. 'It’s all about fitting the right job with the right press. Lion Labels will be able to increase its productivity by taking on additional jobs that the Truepress Jet L350UV SAI would be suitable for.'
According to Screen, the Truepress Jet L350UV SAI is uniquely designed so that it can physically accommodate more pressrooms in terms of available space. Screen’s engineers work closely with their global counterparts to ensure that they are meeting the specific needs of their customers around the world. Screen recognizes that packaging the technology can be as important as the technology itself.
This is Lion Labels’ first investment with Screen Americas. The two companies look forward to their continued partnership.
