Epson SurePress L-4033 wins European seal of approval

Hall 9 Stand A50

Following recent news from Converter about Epson’s SurePress L-4033 being popular among UK labelling companies, the company is now celebrating the success of the Digital Label Press at Labelexpo.

The first press was launched five years ago, over 50 installations have been made across Europe and several companies have already added a second press to expand their digital label production capabilities.

The six-colour SurePress L-4033A and seven-colour SurePress L-4033AW are the world’s only aqueous inkjet label presses and are ideal for the production of high-quality, high-value, short-run labels. These presses deliver print quality on a wide variety of standard label substrates, including clear film and metallic substrates, and without the need for pre-treatments or coatings.

Examples of companies who are growing successful businesses with their SurePress L-4033 presses include Superfast Labels in the UK, Phenix Etiquettes, in France, and Label24.de, Germany.

Elsewhere, MK Srl in Italy produces industrial detergents and installed the SurePress L-4033A to print its 150 different high-quality labels – 11 hours a day, five days a week. In only six months the company produced over 1.1 million labels. Etyprinter, Spain picked the SurePress to be able to provide customers with cost-effective short-run volumes of customised and personalised colour labels – not commercially viable using analogue presses.

Marc Tinkler, senior manager, business development, Epson Europe, said: “Companies are choosing the SurePress L-4033 because they want the ability to produce consistently high-quality, short-medium volume, labels quickly and cost effectively. Time and time again, we hear from our customers that the reliability of the press is superb – with little or no downtime.

“Printhead maintenance is automated and ink cartridges can be replaced without stopping the press. What’s particularly good is that this press is opening up new business opportunities and revenue streams for our customers, which is why so many are now installing a second.”

The SurePress L-4033AW will be demonstrated at Labelexpo, alongside Epson’s full line-up of label print solutions – ranging from handheld label makers and desktop label printers to high productivity digital label presses. All are developed and manufactured by the company and use Epson hardware, printheads, ink and software to ensure the best performance.
