Germany’s O.D.D. Print + Medien installs Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM

The printer allows for more print runs in a shorter time

O.D.D. is a label and folding box printer

German print company O.D.D. Print + Medien has purchased a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM label printer, which is manufactured by Japan-based Screen Graphic Solutions. O.D.D. is a label and folding box printing specialist for the pharma, food, and other industries.

“The Truepress Jet L350UV+LM allows us to finish more print runs in a shorter time, ensuring we can respond to our customers’ growing demand for quick and small print runs,” says Alexander Haßinger, managing partner and technical manager at O.D.D.

Based in Bad Kreuznach, a city about 80km west of Frankfurt, O.D.D. started in 1988. As well as its label and packaging unit, O.D.D.’s corporate printing unit provides a wide range of commercial printing services, from business cards to large-size banners.

According to Haßinger, another perk of the L350 is that it supports O.D.D.’s commitment to sustainability. “By enabling tailored print runs and last-minute delivery of the right number of consistently high-quality labels, this machine helps us save materials and energy,” he says.

Steven Polland, who’s responsible for Screen’s label and packaging business in Germany, says he’s very proud that “yet another printer from the label industry has chosen Screen – with its unique low-migration technology – as our partner for the future.”

“We at Screen are convinced we can support O.D.D. not only with our stable, user-friendly and tried-and-tested technology, but also with our many years of expertise in inkjet printing and colour management. We look forward to helping O.D.D. to achieve its goals and create a successful future together.”

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.
