The Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM has been named Best Label Printer, having received an award from the European Digital Press Association (EDP).
It is the latest in a series of awards for the digital inkjet label press manufacturer, and follows on from wins for its Jet520HD label series from the Japanese and American print industry awards.
The L350UV has proven popular in Australia, with niche Melbourne label printer Exelprint among others to install the press.
The +LM version of the successful Truepress Jet L350UV label printer features a chill roller and newly developed low migration (low permeability) inks that offer unrivalled levels of functionality to food packaging label production. The UV curing of these special inks is accelerated using nitrogen gas bursts into the curing station.
Peter Scott, managing director, Screen GP Australia, says, “Since launching the original Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet label press in 2014, over 100 units have been shipped worldwide, with soon-to-be five in the ANZ region. We have accomplished this in close partnership with our label and CtP distributors Jet Technologies and Fujifilm NZ. Details of the latest New Zealand installation will be released shortly.

“With the L350UV+ and +LM models, Screen delivers industry-leading, reliable print speeds of up to 60 meters per minute, together with the option of gamut-expanding CMYKW plus orange inks and the unique low-migration inks for food applications.
“We are naturally delighted to have won the EDP award for best label printer. To receive such recognition is an honour and further affirms our belief that we are leading the way in the development of inkjet solutions in the digital labels sector. Our R&D people continue to work extensively on innovation, productivity and customer-friendly applications.”
The EDP comprises twenty-one industry trade magazines, covering twenty-seven European countries, with an editorial focus on digital print processes. EDP’s total readership reach is more than half a million and winners are selected across several digital categories for quality and innovation in technologies for the printing industry. Criteria such as achievement, innovation, quality and costs are deciding factors.
