Epson has announced that its latest UV inkjet digital label press is able to run in-line with a GM LUW500 jumbo roll unwinder, an AVT or BST inspection station and a GM DC330 finishing line. This collaboration provides an integrated, productive and streamlined label printing and finishing solution to meet high volume label production demands.
This new capability is ideal for label converters looking to improve operational efficiency for longer print runs, while maintaining the versatility needed for shorter print jobs.
New in-line connection options available for the SurePress L-6534VW include:
- Jumbo unwinder – By minimising operator intervention, the GM LUW500 maximises productivity. The unwind module is fully synchronised to the press with stepless electronic tension setting, roll pick up from the floor and an easy-to-use graphic touch screen.
- Inspection system – Available from AVT or BST, inspection systems provide additional support for process control and quality assurance where necessary, to meet specific production demands.
- In-line finisher –The GM DC330 finisher is capable of high-speed production. It can be operated as a fully integrated in-line converter or off-line for flexible finishing options.
Marc Tinkler, Head of Product Marketing, Commercial and Industrial Printing at Epson Europe, commented: “The addition of these connection options means we can offer our customers an even more productive solution for streamlined, end-to-end, high volume label production. We’ve worked in collaboration with GM for over a decade and we are pleased that our partnership offers increasingly innovative, time-saving solutions that increase productivity.
Remote demonstrations of the full configuration will be available from an Epson facility.
