Luminar adds Screen L350UV

Luminar expands its digital printing operations with Screen L350UV Inkjet Series

Sydney-based packing and labelling specialist Luminar has expanded its digital printing operations with the deployment of the Screen L350UV Inkjet Series.

Supported by Screen’s 10-year partner Jet Technologies, the L350UV is an inkjet press for both the labelling and packaging sectors.

Since the implementation of the L350UV, Luminar has extended its digital printing capacity and streamlined its existing digital operations.

Positioned as a hybrid digital labelling and flexible packaging company, Luminar’s broad industry base includes industrial and automotive customers such as ACCO Brands, and food and beverage customers such as My Muscle Chef and Mingle Seasoning, as well as craft beer and health and beauty customers.

“With such a diversity of customers, we needed a solution that would increase our printing efficiency without sacrificing quality or attention to detail. The decision to select the L350UV came about after a long association with Jet Technologies, where they systematically proved the L350UV’s unrivalled reliability and high productivity,” Luminar managing director Matt Ellis said.

“Since working with the new system, we have found that it is incredibly efficient and agile; offering a wide range of material solutions that are used to service our existing customers whilst also supporting our growth trajectory as a business.”

The L350UV is a flexible and automated label production system in its class, delivering speeds of up to 60 meters per minute, with a prominent inkjet-head technology ensuring both quality and throughput.

“Since 2018, our flexible packaging sales have grown by over 100 per cent year on year, and in an effort to continue servicing our customers at the highest level, we felt the L350UV was the best solution for us and our customers to cater to this business growth.

“Having the local support from Screen and Jet Technologies made the decision a no-brainer, and we are excited about the additional strength this system will provide for our already-strong printing capabilities,” Ellis said.

Jet Technologies director of sales David Reece said the printer will expand Luminar’s capabilities.

“We have worked with Luminar for many years and are very excited at the digital printing opportunities that the L350UV will bring for their business,” Reece said.

“The L350UV is an incredibly reliable and highly productive machine and will support Luminar’s ongoing growth across multiple markets.”
