South Africa's First Impression Labels Invests in Screen and Rotocon Equipment

South African label printer and converter First Impression Labels (FIL) has purchased equipment from Rotocon and Screen Graphic Solutions to boost its digital print production capability.

The firm has invested in a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+ inkjet label press and Rotocon Ecoline RDF-330 for converting and finishing.

With a production speed of 60m/min, the Screen Truepress L350UV+ is designed for high-end, high-speed label production.

The press offers enhanced productivity, substrate compatibility, color reproduction, operability and other advanced features, Rotocon said.

The Rotocon Ecoline RDF-330, which is a part of ROTOCON’s own Ecoline brand of finishing machines, is designed to provide servo-driven digital label converting and finishing.

For First Impression Labels, the Rotocon Ecoline RDF-330 machine is equipped with a rotary flexo print unit, cold foil/lamination unit and a die-cutting station that can be used in semi- or full-rotary mode.

FIL owner and operations director Vaughan Cumming said: “For many years, FIL has turned to ROTOCON as a trusted and resourceful partner for our technology investments in label printing and converting.

“We embraced digital label production four years ago with the continent’s very first Screen Truepress Jet press, and haven’t looked back.”

FIL offers flexographic printing for the shrink-sleeve, wraparound, roll-fed and self-adhesive label market.

In March, Screen Graphic Solutions said it has reached the total number of shipments of its Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet label printing systems to 100 unit mark worldwide.

The firm showcased the first Truepress Jet L350UV machine as a prototype at drupe 2012 held in Germany, and was later commercially released as a CMYK model at the end of 2013.
