“This is a terrific opportunity and builds on our close relationship as Screen’s L350UV dealer in Australia, where we also represent Screen’s flexographic platemakers,” says Jet Technologies Director Jack Malki. “The L350UV is ideally suited to the Indonesian market where there are many smaller manufacturers requiring short runs of high quality full colour labels. For larger manufacturers, it also serves as an excellent press for trial marketing, versioning and personalisation of labels.”
The Screen Truepress Jet L350UV was first previewed at Drupa 2012 and received a world premiere at PacPrint 2013, Melbourne. Two L350UVs will be on display at LabelExpo Europe, Brussels, September 24-27, 2013. One is on the Screen Europe stand 9G50 and another on dealer Dantex’s stand 5D20. Jet Technologies personnel will be attending LabelExpo Europe.
With a maximum 350mm web width and 322mm print width, running at up to 50 meters per minute, the company says the L350UV is one of the most productive digital label presses available, producing up to 16.1 square meters of full color labels per minute, on standard label stock thanks to the UV-cured inks.
The Indonesian distribution contract will see PT Jet Technologies Indonesia champion the Screen Truepress Jet L350UV brand to the Indonesian label and packaging industry. Screen’s area Vice President Keiichi Kometani comments: “We are delighted to appoint PT Jet Technologies as our Indonesian partner for distribution of the new L350UV digital label press. They have good knowledge of the label and packaging market and also of the press because of their association with Screen in Australia. Together, we look forward to helping Indonesian customers expand their business with digitally-printed labels.”
Malki adds, “Our recently opened Jakarta branch staffed by the local industry experienced Arman Mampuk and Yanuar Emilius and supported by myself, Asia Pacific Sales Director David Reece and the team; will be fully trained on the capabilities of the Truepress Jet L350UV. Indonesia is a vibrant, growing market with a population over 240 million so the label requirements for food, beverages, healthcare and consumer products can only continue to grow, along with increasing prosperity.”
