Joining the SurePress L-4733A/AW in the UV digital label press line-up, the SurePress L-6534VW will offer three print speed modes from 15 meters per minute to 50 meters per minute.

Designed for label converters investing in a digital label press for the first time or looking to expand production facilities with a reliable, easy-to-use press, the SurePress L-6534VW delivers three print speed modes to meet a range of converter needs.

“The SurePress L-6534VW will be Epson’s new generation Inkjet label press, setting high standards for UV print quality. The PrecisionCore linehead is the key to the high performance and reliability of SurePress L-6534VW. This printer is designed to deliver higher print speeds than its predecessor thus, prioritizing and enhancing our customer’s experience” said Satyanarayana P, director – Visual products, Large format printers & Robots, Epson India.

The SurePress L-6534W digital LED UV inkjet press can produce high-quality, durable labels and integrates all of the functions required for label production, including a Corona Treater, White ink, digital varnish, and an additional UV curing unit. The print heads, inks, LED pinning and curing lamp units, media feeding, and control system are all developed and manufactured by Epson. 

Additional features include:

PrecisionCore Linehead – Enables high-speed, single-pass printing to deliver amazing output quality and durability; digital monitoring system maintains high productivity using nozzle verification technology to automatically manage inkjet nozzles

Digital varnish – Gloss or matte finish can be selected for the overall label, and appealing partial accents can be added using glossy or matte spot varnish

Substrate feed – Center drum system feeds the substrate with incredible precision designed to achieve high accuracy color registration and reduce the heat expansion or shrinkage of the substrate, enabling various types of off-the-shelf standard flexographic substrates to be used

LED UV ink – Quick-drying UV ink helps enhance productivity and offers excellent weather, scratch, chemical, and water resistance; LED light source saves space and offers a lower energy use, enabling printing on heat-sensitive substrates.

White ink – In white ink printing, surface white print and reverse-white print are available to extend the range of expression on clear and metalized films.

Variable web width – Supports rolls from 3.15 to 13-inches wide up to 0.013-inches (0.32 millimeter) thick (80 to 320 micron).

Enhanced productivity – Linehead maintenance is done automatically during the shift, and manual cleaning is limited to a short interval after the shift.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
