Austrian label printer invests in screen technology C

iting superb print quality, cost- effectiveness and excellent customer service, Hauer Etiketten has invested

in a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM, its first piece of Screen equipment, and the first L350UV+LM model to be installed in Austria. Martin Hauer, CEO, comments, “The decision to invest in Screen technology was based on a number of key deciding factors. Most importantly, the overall print is of the highest quality compared to its competitors in the industry. Secondly, the low migration features of the press open further opportunities for our business in short-run food package labelling. The customer service we have received from Screen Europe and their Austrian partner MCA Pro has been first class, with very professional technicians and good all-round communication and efficiency during and after installation. Also significant are the quicker delivery times; less complicated realisation of serialisation or numerous variations of a label; and the overall added benefit of the haptic experience of the ink.”

The Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+LM continues to break barriers with its speed and productivity, the press placed first in the ‘Best Label Printer’ category at the European Digital Press Association (EDP) Annual Awards. Hauer continues, “Demand for labels is

ever-increasing, as such, we were looking to extend our portfolio. Short-run jobs and jobs with a high number of variations will be

produced in a fraction of the time of conventional printing with this new equipment. Customers want more variety in design and size of labels, whilst demand for visual impact is also growing. We are now able to match the changing requirements of the market in a more effective way.” “The feedback from Hauer Etiketten has

been very positive. The delivered low migration solution – a combination of new SCREEN LM ink and a special curing process under inert gas – is opening the door to completely new applications for the food packaging industry,” says Martin Strobel, managing director, MCA Pro Austria. “We partnered with Screen because we

know we’re selling first-rate reliable technology that customers love. The L350UV+LM label press is another example of the continuing innovation coming from the Japanese company, which provides substantial, tangible benefits for our customers.”

Clever labelling solution reduces bottlenecked supply chain

ndustrial Labelling Systems (ILS) launched new, highly accurate and box clever equipment to help speed the flow of goods through the supply chain, eliminating bottlenecks in the labelling process. Quicktamp Logistics Labelling System,


exclusively available in the UK from ILS, is a fast and flexible applicator developed by Evolabel that can handle packages of all dimensions – an ideal solution for 3PL companies and the frenzied distribution environment of e-commerce firms, where the need for quick turnaround times is paramount.

This equipment is also suitable for the

pharmaceutical sectors where the consequences of incorrect labelling can be fatal. An innovative design enables high- precision labelling, even if the height of the package changes randomly, providing an advantage over traditional print and apply systems. Capable of processing up to 20 random

or fixed-height packages per minute at line speeds of up to 80m/min, Quicktamp’s height measuring sensor simplifies installation and ensures labels are applied accurately and clearly every time, removing the workforce from the slow, mundane and potentially error prone task of manually labelling goods. Based on Evolabel’s unique tactile apply solution, where the movement is constantly monitored and controlled to ensure safety of packages and employees, Quicktamp is driven by a pulse, encoder- controlled stepper motor. The carbon fibre shaft that holds the label firmly with a patented 3D printed applicator pad, moves quickly to its target and applies the label with unerring accuracy. To ensure maximum throughput it has a duty/standby arrangement where two

machines are configured together, therefore eliminating all media changeover downtime to meet the demands of the rising number of 3PL companies fulfilling e-commerce needs. As warehousing becomes increasingly

automated and digitised, systems are evolving to suit the customer’s requirements and that normally means improving the bottom line by allowing the machines to take over and keeping human intervention in the labelling process to a minimum. ILS’s business development manager, Phil

Molloy, says: “The need for ultra-fast delivery in the e-commerce sector is driving the shift to automation and in-line labelling requirements to higher levels. Quicktamp is a new, dynamic labelling system offering exceptional accuracy that can eliminate bottlenecks sometimes identified with traditional print and apply systems.” Established in 2002, Manchester-based

ILS partnered with Swedish company Evolabel in 2015 and has not looked back. It now boasts a large range of labelling solutions with blue-chip end users in multiple sectors across the UK.
