New York based Syracuse Label & Surround Printing has invested in a Dantex PicoColour UV inkjet digital label press to replace their aging equipment and increase digital capability for an expanding customer base.
Syracuse runs multiple production lines in their newly expanded facility utilizing a number of technologies including digital inkjet to manage the production of a range of self-adhesive labels of different types, sizes and designs for a diversity of sectors.
‘The investment in the Dantex PicoColour was specifically made to replace our inkjet digital press, which had reached its end of life,’ said Mark Howard, Graphic Services Segment manager for Syracuse Label & Surround Printing. ‘We decided to partner with Dantex to take advantage of the step-change in technology that the PicoColour offers when compared to our previous press. Providing 4-colors, UV white, corona treatment and in-line die-cutting, this impressive press will allow us to make our process even stronger, while significantly increasing our capabilities. We are super excited to add this press to our production floor.’
The PicoColour offers a printing width of 8.25in and running capacity of 82fpm, works with UV based inks and is available with CMYK + white, with the option of a variety of additional features.
Benjamin Danon, president Dantex USA, commented: ‘The PicoColour is a fantastic model for SME printing companies entering digital inkjet and for those replacing older digital presses. The press fits perfectly into the sector requiring fast turnaround, short or long run lengths, multi-variants and variable data. Dantex is perfectly positioned today to bring the next technological step to our global customer base.’
‘With the market absolutely ready to accept inkjet as its future, Dantex USA is perfectly placed to supply this technology to customers who are either considering, or ready to invest in inkjet,’ added Michelle Garza, VP of Dantex USA. ‘Dantex will be showcasing the entire range of inkjet presses at Label Expo Chicago later this year.’
Syracuse will take delivery of the new press in Q1 2020.
