Epson has placed Australasia’s first high productivity SurePress L-6534VW industrial UV digital label press into its new Experience Centre in Sydney.
The new SurePress L-6534VW label press prints at speeds of up to 50 metres per minute, aiming for higher productivity with improved reliability and usability.
It also uses wide gamut CMYK inks with a high opacity white as standard. The company says it includes an innovative inline digital varnish which delivers smooth gloss, matte and spot finishes.
It combines Epson PrecisionCore printheads around a central impression drum in conjunction with a narrow platen gap, delivering precise droplet placement without web meandering or skewing. Its LED pining system also helps deliver finer tonal gradation and sharp images.
Epson’s proprietary Nozzle Verification Technology (NVT) and automatic head maintenance efficiently help the L-6534VW label press print through each shift without operator intervention.
As the L-6534VW label press supports a wide range of label applications including food and beverage, the labels it produces are also weather resistant.
Standard features for the L-6534VW include corona treater, web cleaner, ioniser and additional UV curing kit for increased ink adhesion on difficult substrates, all of which combine to help the press provide the highest level of versatility in print production.
