Label Manufacturer Increases Production and Reduces Waste with Second SCREEN Truepress Jet L350UV SAI S Press

By SCREEN Americas   

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Illinois—SCREEN Americas announces the installation of the second Truepress Jet L350UV SAI at Label Solutions Inc. of Marshfield, MS. The two presses, identical S models with white, orange and blue ink options, have been integrated at the company’s 40,000-square-foot facility and are operating jointly.

As a manufacturer of prime labels, custom labels, labels with multiple SKUs, short-run labels and consecutive bar-code labels, the dual arrangement has allowed Label Solutions the ability to match colour more efficiently and increase capacity of its overall production. The short web length of the Truepress Jet L350UV SAI produces less waste when jobs are split across two presses.

Label Solutions has benefited from the Trust Network Service program offered by SCREEN Americas. The system is comprised of three components: TRUST Dialog, TRUST Guard and TRUST Assist. TRUST Dialog includes a personalized web-based dashboard providing operators with crucial insight on how the press is performing along with the status of each job. Additionally, the dashboard measures things such as paper and ink consumption. TRUST Guard allows the press to be securely monitored by SCREEN servers equipped with sophisticated software designed to reduce downtime. By analyzing data, the software identifies problems before they materialize. And TRUST Assist enables SCREEN’s product support engineers to provide secure troubleshooting, real-time support and maintenance from a remote location.

“The Trust system is a very powerful tool that helps us analyze every job printed,” said Karen Stevens, president of Label Solutions. “Because of Trust, a great deal of valuable information is collected on a per-job basis that offers insight into the performance of the press along with real-time activity of each job we produce. Trust is a game changing tool for us.”

The company opted for a second press from the Truepress Jet L350UV SAI series upon achieving an ink savings of 20 per cent shortly after the installation of the first press in July 2022.
