The added features bring system flexibility to label converters, allowing businesses to make a complete digital production solution ideally suited to their operation.
“Epson continues to support our high-volume label converter customers with the SurePress L-6534VW as a core label press for end-to-end digital printing,” says Victor Gomez, director, Industrial Labels, Epson America. “We developed this inline solution together with Grafisk Maskinfabrik (GM), a valued partner to SurePress for over a decade, in order to help maximize our customers’ productivity and labor savings going from a blank media roll, all the way to the finished label with as little manual intervention as possible.”
There are multiple new inline solutions available for the SurePress L-6534VW. This includes an in line finisher, which is available directly from manufacturer GM. The DC330MINI finisher may be run in an inline configuration to save time unloading and reloading the printed roll. The finisher may also be run off-line, as the job requires. In addition, GM has a full line of customizable finishing options that include flexo stations, hot foil stamping, screen printing, and laser diecutting.
An external unwinder is also available from GM. The LUW500 jumbo roll unwinder minimizes operator intervention, saving time from media roll changeovers.
Meanwhile, an inspection system is offered from AVT and BST, as inline inspection options provide quality control and assurance and frees the operator to do other work, such as setup the next print job.
The SurePress L-6534VW high-speed digital label press prints pressure sensitive, shrink and in-mold labels and flexible packaging with outstanding durability at speeds up to 164 fpm. Engineered for reliability and ease of use, SurePress comes standard with all the functions required for label production, including inline digital varnish, a corona treater, white ink, and an additional UV curing unit. The printheads, inks, LED pinning and curing lamp units, media feeding, and control system are all developed, serviced and manufactured by Epson.
The SurePress L-6534VW inline integration solutions will be available in Summer 2021.
