Spectrum Digital Labels has invested in Dantex PicoJet 330 UV inkjet digital press

Newly established printer, Norfolk-based Spectrum Digital Labels has invested in Dantex PicoJet 330 UV inkjet digital press.

Joint owners John Parker, managing director and Ian Tregay, sales director, have recently established Spectrum Digital Labels after 30 years spent in the print industry. During their careers, both developed significant industry knowledge and experience, including forging a strong working relationship with Dantex.

‘The PicoJet has been on the radar for us for a while now, having seen it in action at the Dantex Digital site in Kettering,’ said Tregay. ‘We’re really impressed by the changeover speed from one substrate to another and the high-resolution quality. We’ve opted for a number of options including white, variable data, slitter and edge trimmer, which will hold us in good stead for the foreseeable future.’

PicoJet 330 offers production speed of up to 75 m/min (250 ft/min) and can produce more than 9 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.

‘We have a long history of association with Dantex, way before it launched its successful digital division,’ commented John Parker. ‘It’s great to do business with them. Dantex has always had an awesome reputation for service and attention to customers’ needs. We are confident that the installation of the press will be the start of a journey with Dantex and that it will be there throughout, working closely together with us to get the best out of the press.’

Commenting on Spectrum’s investment, Dantex’s director of operations, Andy Abbott said: ‘John’s association with Dantex goes back many years, primarily as a supplier of plate materials and plate making equipment and more recently for our digital expertise. The history of our relationship has today given John the confidence to look at our digital offering and make PicoJet 330 their preferred choice for their new digital label printing venture. The impressive capabilities of this press; speed, quality and performance will help Spectrum reach their business targets in the shortest possible time.’
