Screen Graphic Solutions has finalised development of a new blue ink intended for use in its high end Truepress Jet L350UV+ digital label printing system. The ink will be released worldwide in June.
In recent years, the growing awareness of corporate and product brand image has led to a continuous increase in demand for higher quality product labelling and packaging. At the same time, there has been a growing need for the ability to use the blue colours often required for corporate designs and product packaging with digital label presses to provide greater flexibility and impact.
In response to these trends, Screen GA has developed ‘Truepress ink for L350UV Blue’. This new blue ink is designed for use with the company’s Truepress Jet L350UV+ system, a high end UV inkjet label printing model that also offers features including industry leading print speeds of up to 60 metres per minute, wide media compatibility and outstanding operability.
The system’s ability to handle blue ink in addition to conventional CMYK and white inks allows it to faithfully reproduce blue colours in corporate designs that were previously difficult using process colours alone. It is also able to precisely output a wide range of blue tones frequently used on the packaging of items such as cosmetics, toiletries and body care products. These expressive capabilities help to improve brand image and crate products that truly stand out from competitor items in the marketplace.
Screen Europe will be showing the Truepress Jet L350UV+ with the new blue ink at the inaugural LabelFest Open House event at its Amstelveen showroom in the Netherlands on 15 and 16 May 2019. Partners joining Screen at the event include Cerm, Hybrid Software, Avery Dennison, Rotocon Europe, SEI Laser, CGS and Kurz.
Carlo Sammarco, Screen sales director packaging solutions EMEA, said: ‘Visitors to LabelFest will be able to see a fully integrated digital label production system in operation and will have the opportunity to discuss their requirements with members of the Screen team and with our partner vendors.’
