ProPrint doubles digital capacity with Truepress Jet L350UV SAI S

ProPrint Group has invested in a Screen L350UV SAI S digital press to increase production speeds and reduce material waste

British labels and packaging specialist ProPrint Group has invested in a Screen L350UV SAI S digital press to increase production speeds and reduce material waste.

Since acquiring a Fujifiilm’s Graphium hybrid inkjet press for digital label printing five years ago, the ProPrint Group has expanded significantly. The growth of the flexographic provision and the addition of linerless labeling capacity have contributed to doubling the company’s turnover.

ProPrint chose the latest Screen digital press to serve the demand for self-adhesive digital labels across various sectors. An increase in sales growth and customer appetite for premium digital label printing within short lead times also drove the investment. The move is expected to increase digital label capacity and achieve better flexibility with new label applications.

According to the company, opting for a new digital press from Screen was also motivated by its ease of operation, print speeds, extended color gamut, and opaque white. The press offers blue and orange inkjet modules along with CMYK.

The new equipment features a corona unit to enhance adhesion to non-top coated filmic materials, insetting option, a chilled drum, and automated connectivity to an MIS system.

Further investment in finishing equipment to supplement increased digital label output is awaiting delivery. This strategy will enable ProPrint Group to administer specific markets and deliver print jobs that could otherwise be less efficiently manufactured.

‘We’ve seen excellent growth in a variety of markets. The Truepress Jet L350UV SAI S increases production speeds and reduces material waste due to being compact and highly efficient. Consequently, we will have the optimal resource to supply to our growing customer base in first-class lead times. Because of Screen, our digital capacity has doubled,’ said James Denny, director at ProPrint Group.
