Screen Truepress Jet L350UV press
Etichettificio Dany has installed a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV press to meet increased demand for low volume work. Based in Riccione, Italy, Etichettificio Dany prints self-adhesive labels mostly for food, beverage, detergents and personal care packaging.
'Since the business was founded in 1999, we have never stopped striving to improve,' explained Marco Olivieri, director at Etichettificio Dany. 'Every year we invest in our site, improving our machinery and working on collaborations with qualified partners. That commitment has allowed us to grow even in times of economic crisis. Today we are an industrial labeller able to satisfy the needs of the market flexibly.'
With a running speed of 50m/min, proprietary Screen printheads with four step droplet technology and the Equios workflow system, the Screen Truepress Jet L350UV - supplied to Etichettificio Dany by REM - guarantees high production and quality standards allowing rapid job changes and delivering an ideal solution for medium- and low-run work.
'The new machine serves to meet the demands of our customers in relation to increased job variations and short-runs, complementing our existing flexo presses,' said Mr Olivieri. 'Inkjet is an innovative technology that is still fairly new in terms of market adoption, meaning we can offer something different to our Italian competitors. We believe this investment will benefit all markets that need shorter timescales but require superior quality to other digital technologies.'
REM Solutions Manager, Ettore Maretti, added, 'The special features of this printing system have been designed to meet the latest label and packaging market requirements, where volumes are continually decreasing and the need for frequent job changes and variations of the same job are more and more a must for print service providers.
'Another factor that moved the needle in Screen's favour was the expertise and experience of the technical staff. Able to guarantee a high standard of assistance both during installation and aftersales through constant remote monitoring of the press, this is a very important aspect to minimise downtime and ensure planned and targeted interventions. The result is at least 90% uptime of the press.'
