The L-6034VW digital label press features advanced Epson PrecisionCore® line inkjet print-head technology with multiple heads positioned around a rotating drum with LED partial curing (pinning) lights. The large drum and cool LEDs ensure consistent and predictable imaging with minimal media expansion/ shrinkage while an advanced web transport system with direct steering ensures precise tracking. Each head incorporates hundreds of micro-fine nozzles that are precision engineered with an electro-mechanical operation for ultra-precise drop formation and placement. The heads enable superior and consistent print with remarkably sharp detail. Labels can be produced with crisp small type, fine line art, and extremely accurate bar codes. Integrated Epson Variable-Sized Droplet Technology (VSDT) enables different sized droplets to be produced for smooth gradations, optimum ink application and minimum consumption.
UV ink3 provides excellent weather, scratch, chemical, and water resistance. The Epson formulation features an advanced construction that provides an enhanced gamut with brighter colour. It was developed specifically for industrial label production and is manufactured to extremely high precision under an ultra-clean environment for consistent and predictable performance. It adheres directly to a wide range of substrates including paper, clear and metalized films, without the need for surface treatments or coatings. It ships in large and cost-effective bags that are not only efficient to transport and store, but are also crushable for easy disposal. The colour set incorporates a high-opacity White ink that can be applied in-line as a surface colour or as a separate layer in a multi-pass print run. It also includes a Digital Multi-Varnish that can be applied with a selectable matte or gloss finish, on a spot basis or as a wash, for additional durability and presentation value. An optional in-line corona treater is available while the integrated in-line pinning system ensures dot shape and positioning is maintained for superior imaging with precise edge definition, even tonal gradations, and low graininess. The in-line pinning system ensures accurate dot shape and positioning for superior imaging with precise edge definition, even tonal gradations, and low graininess. With SurePress you can produce premium quality output that is predictable and consistent with a finish that is durable, bright and packed with punch.
Epson's SurePress™ digital label press provides an innovative solution for short to medium run print jobs. The digital process ensures make-ready time is dramatically reduced while substrate changeover is quick and easy. An integrated take-up and optional in-line UV curing unit enable roll to roll production with no requirement for colour adjustment or drifts in the registration mark, from the first frame to the last. The press requires minimum oversight and can be managed by a single operator via a simple menu driven touch-screen panel with user-configurable pre-sets. There is none of the plate or film waste involved with traditional print processes and the press achieves print speeds quickly for minimum media wastage. Short-run jobs that were traditionally difficult, time consuming and costly, can be produced quickly, efficiently and profitably. Ink bags are loaded via clean and convenient reusable cartridges. They are inserted in pairs for maximum capacity and can be replaced while printing continues. The UV pinning system features long-life LEDs while the print-heads incorporate an advanced nozzle status analysis and error detection system that requires no ink ejection and operates continuously, engaging a cleaning wiper automatically as and when required.
The L-6034VW not only delivers on print quality and operational ease, but also output versatility. It prints in adjustable frames up to 1000mm in length on a huge variety of off-the-shelf substrates up to 320 micron thick and 340mm wide. An optional in-line corona treater provides enhanced media support while the LED pinning system enables operation with heat-sensitive substrates such as PE. An optional in-line curing system works with the integrated re-winder to enable rapid roll-to-roll production with adjustable tension control to suit wide range of industry standard finishing equipment. The LED pinning system provides support for heat-sensitive substrates such as PE while the integrated re-winder and optional in-line curing system enable rapid roll to roll production. Precision alignment and adjustable tension control on the re-winder ensure output rolls are suitable for a wide range of industry standard finishing equipment. Installing an Epson SurePress will not only boost your marketability but leave you amazed at how flexible and cost effective your operation can become.
