British label converter PeterLynn has invested in a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+ inkjet press to expand its digital printing capacity required to meet the growing demand driven by the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘We chose the Screen inkjet press because we were impressed by the vibrancy of color that can be achieved, as well as the fast print speeds of 60m/min,’ said James Lindsay, managing director of PeterLynn. ‘We had been considering expanding our digital offering for some time, but when the Covid-19 crisis hit, we actually found demand for our digital department increasing to unprecedented levels.
‘This was driven by several industries moving from wholesale to consumer-size packaging, such as brewers switching from kegged beer for pubs to canned and bottled beer for consumers to enjoy at home.’
‘PeterLynn completed a thorough evaluation of the options in the marketplace, including talking extensively to existing Screen Truepress users,’ commented David Farnsworth, UK and Ireland sales manager for industrial inkjet at Screen Europe. ‘The team at PeterLynn was reassured of the reliability, uptime, ease-of-use and crucially the color consistency offered by the Screen L350UV+.
Victoria Waine, PeterLynn sales and marketing manager added: ‘In label printing there is a constant demand for eye-catching yet cost-effective ways of creating labels. In recent months that demand has moved towards bright colors and spot gloss highlights on the label. I am so impressed with some of the initial work we have produced, and so are our customers. I really feel that the Screen L350UV+ will open up exciting new opportunities for us within a number of key sectors and will allow us to win long print runs for digital.’
