Belgium-based Esko has announced it has entered into an OEM relationship with Epson to provide the Digital Front End for the Surepress L-4033A and L-4033AW digital label presses.
“As the label and packaging market increasingly transitions from analog to digital solutions, manufacturers of digital printing equipment are looking for digital front-end alternatives that can effectively address workflow and job processing issues specific to their industry,” says Jef Bogaerts, Commercial Partnerships at Esko. “We are pleased to be partnering with Epson, one of the printing industry’s best-known brands.”
The L-4033A and L-4033AW are six and seven-colour inkjet label presses respectively. The machines print on a variety of substrates up to 13-inches wide. The Esko front end will be offered standard in Europe and Australia and as an option for presses sold elsewhere in the world.
