Epson will showcase its label and package printing solutions at Labelexpo Americas 2018 in Chicago. Epson’s stand will be shared by the SurePress digital label presses with automated solutions including workflow using the Wasatch RIP software, as well as ColorWorks on-demand color label printers.
Epson will feature its SurePress digital label presses, including the SurePress L-6034VW and L-4533AW. Epson’s label presses are customizable to meet various needs and budgets, and provide media flexibility for pressure-sensitive, shrink and in-mold labels, as well as flexible packaging. Epson will also showcase its line of ColorWorks on-demand inkjet label printers, which deliver fast, efficient, custom labels on demand to save time and reduce costs.
Epson’s single-pass industrial press uses Epson’s PrecisionCore linehead technology and low migration LED UV curing ink, enabling high-speed printing ideal for producing labels designed for scratch and weather resistance. The L-6034VW integrates functions required for label production, including a Corona Treater, White ink, digital varnish, an additional UV curing unit, and automated maintenance and print head monitoring.
This 7-color digital label press with white ink delivers color gamut for accurate spot colors and gradients for brand-quality color prime labels and packaging. The L-4533AW is a low-cost, turnkey solution. At the stand, Epson will showcase expanded packaging applications using water-based ink, including shrink and in-mold label, flexible packaging and thin film for foods. In addition, the company will also demonstrate a new in-line photospectrometer used for applications such as automatic profiling and media detection.
Wasatch RIP Software
Epson will demonstrate the SurePress workflow automation capabilities made possible with the Wasatch RIP software included with the presses. The sophisticated solution provides color management options, efficient layout features, intuitive workflow tools, variable data printing, and contour cutting.
Epson’s ColorWorks on-demand color label printers increase productivity and reduce the cost of using pre-printed labels, delivering dependable, commercial inkjet printing with fast-drying, durable color inks. The ColorWorks C7500GE is ideal for demanding, high-volume environments that require customized glossy labels at a low cost. It also ships with Wasatch SoftRIP Label Edition for powerful color management.
The FlexStr8 Snap-on Encoder System upgrades the ColorWorks C7500GE into a high-speed, full-color, RFID label printer that allows variable color data and variable UHF RFID integration at high operating speeds. The system identifies rejected tags on the fly and maintains a log file to track the defective tag and reason for failure.
Labelexpo Americas will take place from 25-27 September 2018 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. Epson will be at Stand 5813.
