It has taken a while but finally, Insight Communications and Screen have made their first sale of the Truepress Jet L350UV digital inkjet press to an Indian customer – Ahmedabad-based S Kumar. The press, which was finalized on the second day of the current Labelexpo India in Greater Noida, will be installed in January 2019 at S Kumar’s new digital label division managed by Aarjav Hansoti.
Insight Print Communication’s managing director Ajay Agarwal says that this is the first of several sales of the Screen UV inket press in the coming twelve months. “We could sell as many as a dozen presses in the coming year,” he said at Labelexpo India. Ever optimistic both about the Indian economy and the print and label industry, Agarwal says the Screen Truepress L350 UV is an ideal solution for top quality label printers. “Running at a speed of 60 meters a minute and with inkjet droplet size as low as 3 picolitres, this machines works on all labelstocks without the need of any primer. It can print on stock from 100 mm to 350 mm wide and has the lowest cost of operation amongst the proven high quality inkjet presses.”
Agarwal is quite impressed by the digital press awareness and presence at Labelexpo India. “Altogether, about ten companies are either showing a running digital press or seriously presenting one at this show. While in markets such as the US, more than half of the label presses are already digital, it’s clear that digital is the way to go for label printers everywhere including India. The entire digital label press should grow much faster than in the previous five years, since there are now several good presses available to Indian converters with a variety of capabilities, price points and ROIs.” he says.
