UK packaging printer Springfield installs first Screen Truepress digital label press 

Screen Jetpres SpringfieldLabel and packaging printer Springfield Solutions in Hull, UK, installed Europe´s first Screen Truepress Jet L350UV. The L350UV is able to print 50 metres a minute on material with a maximum width of 322mm. Dennis Ebeltoft, Springfield´s Operation Director says that the L350UV was chosen because of its excellent cost efficiency. The press proved itself a worthy addition to the 3 HP Indigos of this ´all digital´ printer immediately since the first run. Springfield specializes in orders which are usually not longer than 300 metres with the exceptional 10,000 metres. With the Truepress Jet de ISO, BRC/IoP and Fogra accredited printer can handle the increasing growth in small quantities and short delivery times and hopes to match the 26% yearly growth of the past few years. The L350UV, which required a UKP 570,000 investment, is equipped with inline finishing and a high opacity white option which allows for opaque white to be printed, a must in the current label market.

Screen President Brian Filler sees Springfield´s choice for the L350UV as an endorsement of Truepress´s technological capacity, especially since the press offers label printers the possibility of increasing their turnover in the fast growing market of small quantities. More information about the Truepress Jet can be found on Screen Europe´s website.
