Drukservice Impressa has installed a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV SAI UV inkjet digital label press.

For Drukservice Impressa, which has a history in the print industry that goes back to 1863, self-adhesive labels are a relatively modest but fast-growing segment of its activities. The company also provides wet glue labels made on sheet-fed offset presses, as well as brochures, magazines, point-of-sale materials, folding carton packaging, and a wide range of other printed material. It has a strong client base in the food, chemistry, and retail sectors, servicing international clients in Belgium and beyond.

Tom Bongaerts, CEO, said, ‘We decided to invest in digital inkjet technology for its ability to produce small print runs fast, which is crucial for our clients. For our food business converter clients, we wanted to expand from cut-sheet and wraparound labels to include self-adhesive labels for high-speed application. We chose the Screen Truepress Jet L350UV SAI S for its high production speed and colour consistency, combined with the extreme flexibility inherent to a digital platform. We can be sure it will produce the exact colour in every additional print run, with speed and agility.

‘Our clients increasingly wish to change their labels, both for ‘just-in-time’ marketing purposes and to be able to respond to rapidly changing label regulations. The days that food producers, or any other brand owner, could order one label for the entire European market in large quantities are over. To meet this demand for shorter print runs to be delivered at short notice, inkjet digital printing is the answer. Screen’s press helps us by providing the flexibility and qualities our clients need, and that are our company’s strong trademarks. This press helps us bring our commercial DNA (that includes high quality, competitive pricing and extreme flexibility) to a label and packaging production market that was previously rather rigid and traditional.’
