Fujifilm North America Corporation plans to showcase its new digital UV inkjet label press, LP350, at the Label Congress 2021 event being held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill., on September 29 and 30.

The LP350, planned for release in early 2022, is designed to meet the growing demand within the prime label market for short-runs, high quality and variable content. By combining newly introduced UV inks with a powerful inkjet print engine, this new press offers the “optimum combination of productivity and quality available on the market for a digital label press.”

By using CMYK as well as orange and violet inks, the LP350 is capable of hitting 94 per cent of the Pantone colour gamut. Additionally, double white inkjet channels enable high levels of opacity for a wide variety of label applications. It has the ability to print at a resolution of 600 x 600 dpi with a four-level grayscale and interstation UV pinning.

The LP350 has the capacity to print at 164 ft per minute, regardless of the number of colours or media types required for the print job. The press will be available in both 13 and 9-in. widths to adapt to customer needs.

Matt Bennett, global vice president business strategy for packaging at Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division, said, “The LP350, along with the recently announced J Press FP790 for flexible packaging, underlines Fujifilm’s wealth of inkjet expertise combined with years of experience in providing high quality inks and plates for the flexographic market.”
