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

Supported by 10-year partner, Jet Technologies, the L350UV has proven to be Australia’s leading inkjet press in 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, food and beverage, 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 the most flexible and automated label production system in its class, delivering industry-leading speeds for a digital label system of up to 60 metres per minute.

“Since 2018, our flexible packaging sales have grown by over 100% 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,” Ellis added.

Jet Technologies director of sales, David Reece said, “We have worked with Luminar for many years and are excited at the digital printing opportunities that the L350UV will bring for their business. The L350UV is an incredibly reliable and highly productive machine and will support Luminar’s ongoing growth across multiple markets.”
