A recent investment in a Dantex PicoColour UV inkjet digital press with Corona treatment unit, has seen label firm Cresta Labels strengthen a print capability that includes flexo, hot foil and thermal transfer; with the installation, completed in early March, also complementing its existing digital offering. Nottinghamshire based Cresta has been providing flexible labelling solutions across a wide range of industries for over 40 years.

Using the very latest in printhead technology to provide exceptional results, PicoColour is one of the most innovative printing presses available on the market. Being versatile and with a small footprint, the label printing system offers superb printed results and is suitable for short and long run jobs. Providing all the benefits of digital printing for today’s demanding production environment, including no minimum quantity, inline finishing, no waste and a super fast turnaround, the press is built to last and simple to operate and maintain.

Cresta Labels managing director Peter Lloyd said: ‘We spent 18 months researching the next step in our continued investment in digital technology. The PicoColour press offers a more robust solution to our current setup and has the ability to print and convert labels in one pass, thereby saving time in dealing with re-registration issues and material.

‘The Corona treatment unit was also a must for printing on a variety of substrates, and with the flexibility of the PicoColour to add variable data and white, all future possible requirements are covered.’

Richard Lloyd, Cresta’s sales and marketing director, added: ‘Dantex Group’s industry expertise in both repro and digital gave us a massive amount of confidence and through the installation process its support and knowledge have been excellent. I can genuinely say this press is a ‘game changer’ for us. With the quality and label finish achieved, we are very excited about the future opportunities it brings.’
