At PacPrint Screen GP highlighted the latest in label printing with a water based inkjet printer and a UV inkjet label printer. It co-exhibited with its label partner Jet Technologies.
The L250 250mm is an entry level water-based roll-to-roll inkjet. Peter Scott, managing director at Screen GP says, “The L250 is an entry printer at an entry price. It is easy to use for those wanting to go into the digital label market. We have had a lot of interest in this printer.”
It also showed a L350 UV 350mm UV inkjet which Scott says prints at 50 metres a minute. Scott says, “The L350 compliments or even replaces the traditional flexo printer with a shorter run so a shorter turn around. You can get the job in a fraction of the time with the same quality but with a better price. There is no set up time and no plates needed.
"This printer is versatile in terms of compatible printing stocks and it can be configured in line with a Screen Jet Converter that does varnish, laminate, foiling and semi rotary die cutting,” he says.
Also on show was the wide format printer, the flatbed UV W3200. Scott says, “This is a high productive machinery with a 184sqm an hour flatbed and a roll to roll option which is 3.2m wide printing at 230sqm an hour.

Scott says he has not stopped during the past couple of days, “It has been busy, there has been a lot of people on the stand.”
Before PacPrint Screen GP had two new sales of the Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet label press plus a PlateRite FX870 flexographic CTP platesetter.
Scott, “To say I am delighted is an under-tatement. Both L350UV digital label presses are now installed and running beautifully, one at great Braeside family company, Sticky Labels, and the other also in Victoria.”
Celebrating its 30th year as a direct Australian operation, Screen GP welcomed three senior executives from the Kyoto, Japan headquarters: regional sales manager Mr Okitsu, global label and packaging business director Mr Tanaka and Screen GP sales division VP Mr Hirose.
