Epson SurePress L-6034VW arrives in Australia

October 2016

First UV digital label press that delivers precise quality, reliability and performance to label producers

SYDNEY, 19 October 2016 – The long-awaited and much-heralded Epson SurePress L-6034VW single-pass industrial digital label press, the first to use Epson’s PrecisionCore linehead technology and the first to use Epson’s low migration LED UV curing ink, has now arrived in Australia.

Over 200 SurePress digital label press units have been installed worldwide, more than doubling sales since 2014. Installed in locations around the world from Japan to Italy to the United States, the SurePress L-6034VW delivers precise quality and high-speed printing ideal for short- to mid-run jobs across all industries including health, beauty, food and beverage by leveraging its plethora of technologies.

General Manager, Business Division, Epson Australia Craig Heckenberg said, "The market has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the L-6034VW and for good reason as the printer now offers users a flexible, easy-to-use UV digital label press that produces better quality labels than ever before. As a result, prime label and packaging producers can fulfil demanding and varying portfolios, create new revenue opportunities and increase their productivity and profitability."

Solely developed and manufactured by Epson, the new SurePress L-6034VW is designed for label producers investing in a digital label press for the first time or looking to expand production facilities with a reliable, easy-to-use press. The SurePress L-6034VW is a compact machine that produces high-quality, durable labels all day, every day with minimal downtime, and integrates all of the functions required for label production, including a corona treater, white ink, digital varnish, and an additional UV curing unit.

The Epson PrecisionCore linehead is the key component behind the high performance, high reliability, low maintenance, and low running costs of the SurePress L-6034VW, while the flexibility to print high-opacity UV white ink first or last significantly boosts image impact on clear and metallic substrates, and expands the variety of labels that can be produced.

More about the SurePress L-6034VW

This compact digital label press delivers Epson’s industry-leading precise quality with extraordinary reliability, flexibility and performance, providing pre- and post-press versatility to meet various label printing needs. Additional features include:

  • PrecisionCore linehead: Enables high-speed, single-pass printing to deliver industry-leading output quality and durability; digital monitoring system maintains high productivity using Nozzle State Analysis to manage dropped inkjet nozzles.
  • LED UV curing ink: Quick-drying UV ink boosts productivity and offers excellent weather, scratch, chemical, and water resistance; LED light source saves space and offers a lower energy use, enabling printing on heat-sensitive substrates.
  • Digital varnish: Gloss or matte finish can be selected for the overall label, and appealing partial accents can be added using glossy or matte spot varnish.
  • Substrate feed: Centre drum system feeds the substrate with incredible precision to minimise colour unevenness and reduce the heat expansion or shrinkage of the substrate, enabling various types of off-the-shelf standard flexographic substrates to be used.
  • White ink: In White ink printing, SurfaceWhite Print and Reverse-White Print are available to extend the range of expression on clear and metalised films.
  • Variable web width: Supports rolls from 3.15 to 13-inches wide up to 0.32 mm thick.
  • Enhanced productivity: Time-consuming, short-run jobs can be transferred to the SurePress for more flexibility and timely results at speeds up to 15 metres per minute with vibrant colour, smooth gradations and ultra-fine text, lines and images.
  • Reduced environmental impact: Enables much easier adjustments than analogue printers, minimising ink consumption and paper waste, as eliminating the need for printing plates.
