Supplied by long-term Screen GP partner, Jet Technologies, the latest SAI model in the L350UV series is a significant upgrade from Sticky Labels' previous Screen L350UV+. It features improved colour reproduction by virtue of extra Orange and Blue ink channels, increased throughput up to 60 metres per minute and even when running white ink, still achieved 50 metres per minute.
With a strong history in commercial label printing for FMCG product lines, including food and beverage, health and beauty, and cleaning brands, Sticky Labels’ upgrade to the L350UV SAI will enable the business to deliver high quality labels to customers at a faster rate than ever, whilst also boosting operational productivity – something that was increasingly vital during high-demand peaks experienced throughout the pandemic.
“Our first investment in the L350UV+ gave us the platform we needed to meet our growth ambitions as a business, whilst optimising our digital printing capabilities and productivity during a time where demand was spiking due to Covid-19. With this growth, it was only natural that we made the move to the latest SAI model – which will further streamline our digital capacity, with even better-quality finishes and the fastest production rates on the market,” says Justine McEwan, Managing Director at Sticky Labels.

“This upgraded digital label press supports our focus on delivering the best customer service, taking our business to a new level and enabling us to compete against larger players in the industry,” adds McEwan.
The latest Screen L350UV SAI model supports printers to significantly increase turn-around speeds for digital printing jobs by automating the process. With its EQUIOS software-generated ‘lead in, lead out’ and ‘reverse-feed’ function, the system also works to considerably lower ink and material waste, reducing overhead costs and improving sustainability standards within operations.
David Reece, Sales Director at Jet Technologies says: “The L350UV SAI's ability to print on a diversity of local and imported materials has positioned it as one of the most innovative and efficient automated label production printers available today. Even more so, with improved productivity rates of up to 60% compared to the previous model, the L350UV SAI is one of the fastest solutions on the market, with the highest-quality results. We’re incredibly pleased to see Sticky Labels further its digital innovation by upgrading to this latest model.”
