Norfolk, UK-based Spectrum Digital Labels has installed a Dantex PicoJet 330 UV inkjet digital press to further expand its production capacity.
‘The Dantex Digital team is brilliant - they all know exactly their roles in the installation process, and their training is second to none. The whole process was textbook from start to finish, and I’m absolutely bowled over by the whole experience,’ commented joint founder and managing director, John Parker. ‘We currently have GBP 1 million worth of business ready to hit the press, so we are delighted to take delivery. We have 100 percent confidence in the press and its ability to process anything we throw at it - from 25-micron film to paper and card with excellent results.’
Both Parker and the second co-founder, Ian Tregay, saw the PicoJet 330 being put through its paces in testing at the Dantex Digital site in Kettering, UK, where it produced an actual job for one of Spectrum’s customers.
‘High quality, high volume digital label production. Look no further than PicoJet,’ commented Parker following the test. ‘With a speed of 75 m/min, we ran one million labels, 27,000 linear meters of substrate all in one shift for our customer Anglian Chemical Hand Sanitiser.’
According to Dantex, the PicoJet 330 installed at Spectrum Digital Labels is a highly productive press, capable of producing more than mine million linear meters of printed labels per year. As a 5-color printing system, it offers 2.5 picolitre droplet size and an effective resolution of 1200 x 1200 DPI. It also features a transport system that controls the print run without displacement while maintaining stable reel-to-reel transfer conditions.
Dantex’s director of operations, Andy Abbott, commented: ‘Both John and Ian know this industry extremely well and it’s great that they have so much confidence in Dantex to deliver them an exceptional machine as the PicoJet 330. Spectrum is certainly powered by digital now, and we wish them every success for the future.’
