Epson’s SurePress L-6534VW offers high print speeds, premium quality output and improved usability

24 September 2019 – Epson has announced that its latest UV digital inkjet label press, the SurePress L-6534VW, will be on the stand at this year’s Labelexpo. This press is ideal for label converters looking to expand their operations by offering clients high-quality self-adhesive labels with a wide choice of substrates in sectors including food, beverage, industrial, cosmetic, toiletries and pharmaceuticals.

The SurePress L-6534VW is built to optimise productivity and minimise downtime. Additional print modes of 30m/min and 50m/min offer businesses greater flexibility in delivering print runs without compromising quality.

Marc Tinkler, head of product marketing, commercial and industrial at Epson Europe, commented: “Epson offers its customers a complete end-to-end high-quality label press solution with all core technologies designed by us, including printheads, hardware, software and inks. Our new SurePress L-6534VW makes good economic sense too. The low TCO is achieved through printing more labels in less time, wastage is reduced thanks to a short substrate path and reverse feeding function, and Nozzle Verification Technology (NVT) detects blocked nozzles and performs automatic head cleaning. Put simply – increased uptime, decreased downtime.”

Other features include:

  • Versatile: supports film and many paper label substrates
  • High-quality output: PrecisionCore TFP linehead technology
  • High-opacity white ink: uses Epson white ink on metallic and clear substrates
  • UV LED pinning:  used between colours to minimise the spread of a dot, enabling sharper text and smoother vignettes.
  • In-line digital varnish: can be printed to give a gloss or matte effect, either overall or as a pattern or spot varnish
  • Print monitoring: The Epson remote monitoring system (ERMS) allows engineers to provide remote diagnostics of print performance

 

SurePress inks comply with the European Framework Regulation (EC No. 1935/2004) on Food Contact Materials (FCM)1. Also, we provide the appropriate levels of durability for outdoor and industrial environments (BS560922 and UL96933 certified).
