Epson in September presented the Epson SurePress L-6534VW digital label press at Labelexpo Americas 2018, designed particularly for label converters investing in a digital label press for the first time or looking to expand production facilities. Joining the SurePress L-6034VW in the UV digital label press line, the SurePress L-6534VW will offer three print speed modes from 49 feet per minute to 162 feet per minute (fpm).

The company explains the SurePress L-6534W digital LED UV inkjet press integrates all of the functions required for label production, including a Corona Treater, White ink, digital varnish, and an additional UV curing unit. The printheads, inks, LED pinning and curing lamp units, media feeding, and control system are all developed and manufactured by Epson. Additional features include: PrecisionCore Linehead for single-pass printing while a digital monitoring system uses Nozzle Verification Technology to automatically manage inkjet nozzles; digital varnish – gloss or matte finish can be selected for partial accents or the overall label; Substrate Feed – a centre drum system, which feeds the substrate, is designed to achieve high accuracy colour registration and reduce the heat expansion or shrinkage of the substrate; and variable web width, which supports rolls from 3.15 to 13-inches wide up to 0.013-inches (0.32 mm) thick.

The SurePress L-6534VW, and a conversion kit for the existing SurePress L-6034VW, are expected to be available in summer 2019.
