With a full order book of jobs in the offing, Norfolk-based Spectrum Digital Labels eagerly welcomed the delivery of a new Dantex PicoJet 330 UV inkjet digital press at its premises recently. Engineers from Dantex Digital, part of the Dantex Group, had the press powered up by the end of the first day, and fully operational shortly after.
“The Dantex Digital team is brilliant – they all know exactly their roles in the installation process and their training is second to none. The whole process was textbook from start to finish and I’m absolutely bowled over by the whole experience” said joint founder and managing director, John Parker. “We currently have £1million-worth of business ready to hit the press, so we are delighted to take delivery. We have 100% confidence in the press and its ability to process anything we throw at it – from 25 micron film to paper and card with excellent results.”
If further convincing was required, both Mr Parker and co-founder Ian Tregay saw the PicoJet 330 being put through its paces in testing at the Dantex Digital site in Kettering, where it produced an actual job for one of Spectrum’s customers. Following the test, Mr Parker said: “With a speed of 75m per minute, we ran one million labels, 27,000 linear metres of substrate, all in one shift for our customer Anglian Chemical Hand Sanitiser!”
Mr Parker and Spectrum sales director, Ian Tregay established Spectrum Digital Labels back in June. During their lengthy careers in the print industry, both had developed a strong working relationship with Dantex, which helped provide the initial impetus for PicoJet 330 investment. The final decision to opt for the PicoJet 330 came after both founders had looked at other manufacturers ahead of the investment, but decided that no other presses matched the PicoJet 330 in terms of outright performance.
