Screen label press takes off with Jet

Narrow web and label specialist supplier PT Jet Technologies Indonesia will distribute Dainippon Screen’s new Truepress Jet L350UV digital label press throughout Indonesia.

Headquartered in Australia, and active throughout Oceania and South-East Asia, Jet Technologies sees Screen technology well placed to fill gaps in the market. Jack Malki, director of Jet Technologies, says, “This is a terrific opportunity and builds on our close relationship as Screen’s L350UV dealer in Australia, where we also represent Screen’s flexographic platemakers.


The Indonesian distribution contract will see PT Jet Technologies Indonesia champion the Screen Truepress Jet L350UV brand to the Indonesian label and packaging industry. Keiichi Kometani, area vice president for Screen, says, “We are delighted to appoint PT Jet Technologies as our Indonesian partner for distribution of the new L350UV digital label press. They have good knowledge of the label and packaging market and also of the press because of their association with Screen in Australia. Together, we look forward to helping Indonesian customers expand their business with digitally-printed labels.”

Malki adds, “The L350UV is ideally suited to the Indonesian market where there are many smaller manufacturers requiring short runs of high quality full-colour labels. For larger manufacturers, it also serves as an excellent press for trial marketing, versioning and personalisation of labels.”

The Screen Truepress Jet L350UV, previewed at drupa last year, received a world premiere at PacPrint 2013 in Melbourne. Jet Technologies personnel will attend LabelExpo Europe in Brussels lkater this month, where Screen will showcase two L350UVs; one on the Screen Europe stand and another on dealer Dantex’s stand. With a maximum 350mm web width and 322mm print width, running at up to 50 metres per minute, the L350UV produces up to 16.1sqm of full colour labels per minute, on standard label stock.

Malki adds, “Our recently opened Jakarta branch staffed by the local industry experienced Arman Mampuk and Yanuar Emilius and supported by myself, Asia Pacific Sales Director David Reece and the team; will be fully trained on the capabilities of the Truepress Jet L350UV. Indonesia is a vibrant, growing market with a population over 240 million so the label requirements for food, beverages, healthcare and consumer products can only continue to grow, along with increasing prosperity.”
