Rolling Meadows, Illinois – SCREEN Americas announces the first sale of its Truepress Jet L350UV SAI in the United States to Lion Labels, Inc. of South Easton, Massachusetts. Just as the Truepress Jet L350UV series from SCREEN was developed to meet the label industry’s growing need for high quality short-term printing, the latest version, the Truepress Jet L350UV SAI, served as an addition to the existing technology from Lion Labels, which included a digital one Toner-based printing machine and conventional flexographic printing machines. With the purchase of a UV inkjet label printing machine from SCREEN, Lion Labels aims to expand its business with shorter lead times.
After completing the first sale in the US, SCREEN Americas is well on the way to establishing significant credibility in the label market. Printers such as Lion Labels that serve the food and beverage industry need a label printing machine that can provide excellent color reproduction at high speeds. In the food and beverage industry in particular, demand has increased due to the pandemic as more and more people stock up on these specific items.
Prior to the purchase, SCREEN Americas hosted Lion Labels at its Rolling Meadows, Illinois facility so that pressroom operators and managers could operate the technology and examine some samples of the finished product. “More options in its portfolio will increase the capacity Lion Labels is looking for,” said Anton Kotesky, retail sales manager for SCREEN Americas’ packaging division and the gentleman who introduced the solution to Lion Labels. “It’s about combining the right job with the right press. Lion Labels will be able to increase its productivity by taking on additional tasks for which the Truepress Jet L350UV SAI would be suitable. “
The right fit isn’t just limited to the right job with the right press when it comes to the Truepress Jet L350UV SAI. The press is uniquely designed so it can physically accommodate more print rooms in relation to the space available. SCREEN engineers work closely with their global counterparts to ensure they meet the specific needs of their customers around the world. SCREEN recognizes that packaging the technology can be as important as the technology itself.
This is Lion Labels’ first investment in SCREEN Americas. The two companies look forward to their continued partnership.
