US – Printing company, A-Flex Label Corporation has installed the Epson SurePress L-6534VW UV digital label press in its Willowbrook, Ill. Facility to scale production.

The SurePress L-6534VW is designed to be dependable and easy to use, enabling high-speed printing ideal for producing labels and packaging with outstanding durability.

The compact design integrates all the functions required for label production, including a Corona Treater, White ink, Digital Varnish, and an additional UV curing unit.

“We needed to invest in technology that was able to run at higher speeds and deliver higher capabilities,” said Tom Carroll, President, A-Flex Label.

“Based on our extensive work and trust in Epson’s SurePress water-based resin ink digital label presses, we decided the SurePress L-6534VW UV press was the right choice for us, and we haven’t been disappointed.”

Carroll notes they trust the quality and reliability they’ve come to expect from Epson. “The print quality is pretty amazing,” said Carroll.

“The SurePress has taken quality to an even higher level. It looks and feels almost like offset, lithography print quality.”

As a small/mid-size printer, A-Flex relies on comprehensive service and support. This was critical to their decision since Epson is able to support them on-site.

According to Mike Pruitt, Senior Product Manager, Epson America, Inc: “The SurePress L-6534VW was designed for shops like A-Flex that are looking to move work away from flexo machines and onto digital presses, which can provide more flexibility with the ability to print high-quality labels in one pass without the use of plates.”

Epson has done an excellent job for many years servicing A-Flex’s SurePress digital label presses, notes Carroll.

The company has evaluated other UV technologies, and ultimately went with Epson because it has both the technology solutions A-Flex needs and the service and support the company can rely on.

“Overall, we’re so impressed with how well thought out this machine is,” concluded Carroll. “It’s an incredibly sophisticated piece of equipment that prevents mistakes from being made and it is a great addition to augment production capabilities.”

The SurePress L-6534VW is available with Digital Varnish or Orange Ink. The print heads, inks, LED pinning and curing lamp units, media feeding, and control system are all developed, serviced and manufactured by Epson.
