Los Alamitos, CA (May 24, 2022) — Epson America today announced it continues its legacy of providing world-class white ink prime label printing with the introduction of the SurePress L-4733AW water-based resin ink digital label press, delivering improved automation. Additionally, as label converters look for ways to add additional color gamut to labels without increasing price, Epson is adding the SurePress L-6534VW with Orange Ink to its portfolio of UV inkjet digital label presses. These new additions to the SurePress line offer higher levels of print quality, consistency, flexibility, and value for label converters, specialty printers and vertical manufacturers.
The SurePress L-4733AW builds on the success of its predecessor, the L-4533AW, one of the leading selling digital inkjet label presses on the market today, to offer advanced automation and unattended printing features, higher productivity on film substrates and an optional inline spectrometer. The SurePress L-6543VW with Orange Ink, an alternative to the L-6534VW with Digital Varnish, has a 92% PANTONE coverage certification within Delta E of 1.5,1 using minimum colors to deliver maximum gamut. Enabling reliable and repeatable high-speed printing of up to 2 million square feet per month,2 it can serve the largest of label converters.
“Label converters and specialty printers are looking for solutions that are simple and cost-effective to operate and maintain, and can deliver on stable, predictable production,” said Mike Pruitt, senior product manager, Epson America Inc. “Epson enhanced its industrial SurePress lineup by adding new capabilities with the L-4733AW and expanding gamut with the L-6534VW with Orange Ink, which can help businesses save on upfront costs and maintenance. These advancements come without the compromise of simple operation and maintenance, production or print quality.”
