December 20, 2010

The first Epson Surepress L-4033A digital label press has been in stalled at Tape & Label Converters in California.

Epson America has announced the availability of its SurePress L-4033A digital label press, and has installed the first machine in North America at Tape & Label Converters. Tape & Label Converters (TLC), Santa Fe Springs, CA, USA. TLC will be using the short-run press to respond to the changing demands of the label printing industry – more complex images requiring higher print resolution and multiple spot colors.

“SurePress is a perfect fit for us because it offers the print quality and spot color reproduction our clients demand, as well as allows us to reach out to new clients with greater capability,” says Mas Crawford, vice president of sales at TLC. “In addition, smaller quantities and shorter lead times are a given in our business, and with SurePress our makeready time is dramatically reduced, operation is simple and maintenance requirements are reduced, giving us increased productivity from our previous solution.”

Designed for label converters, large scale product manufacturers and commercial printers, the SurePress digital label press fits into existing digital workflows and prints on a range of off-the-shelf substrates with no pre-coating required. Printing up to 13” wide and at speeds up to 16 feet per minute, SurePress uses Epson’s MicroPiezo inkjet technology and SurePress AQ six-color, water-based pigment ink.

“From its inception, SurePress was designed to produce excellent print quality with remarkable color at an affordable price, and we expect this installation with Tape & Label Converters to prove that it is a solution perfect for small to mid-size converters,” says Mark Elsbernd, North American region sales manager, Epson America.
