Syracuse Label & Surround Printing will take delivery of the new press in Q1 2020.
Today, the converter runs multiple production lines in its newly expanded facility utilizing a number of technologies, including digital inkjet, to manage the production of a wide range of self-adhesive labels of different types, sizes and designs for a diversity of sectors.
Mark Howard, Graphic Services Segment manager for Syracuse Label & Surround Printing, says, “The investment in the Dantex PicoColour was specifically made to replace our inkjet digital press, which had reached its end of life. We decided to partner with Dantex to take advantage of the step-change in technology that the PicoColour offers when compared to our previous press. Providing four colors, UV white, corona treatment and inline diecutting, this impressive press will allow us to make our process even stronger while significantly increasing our capabilities. We are super excited to add this press to our production floor."
The PicoColour has been developed to address continuing demands from brands for value-added label and package printing. With a printing width of 8.25” and running capacity of 82 fpm, the PicoColour is a versatile and productive printing system, which comes at a competitive price. The press works with UV based inks and is available with CMYK + white, with the option of a variety of additional features.
Benjamin Danon, president of Dantex USA, notes, “The PicoColour is a fantastic model for SME printing companies entering digital inkjet and also for those replacing older digital presses. The press fits perfectly into the sector requiring fast turnaround, short or long run lengths, multi-variants and variable data. Dantex is perfectly positioned today to bring the next technological step to our global customer base.”
Michelle Garza VP Dantex USA adds, “With the market absolutely ready to accept inkjet as its future, Dantex USA is perfectly placed to supply this technology to customers who are either considering, or ready to invest in, inkjet. Dantex USA will be showcasing the entire range of inkjet presses at Labelexpo Chicago later this year."
Dantex launched their digital division in 2015, having served the labels and packaging industry for over 50 years.
