Midwest’s Leading Tag and Label Maker Chooses Epson Digital UV Label Printing Equipment to Impress Customers and Address New Markets
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – Epson today announced that Palco Industrial Marking and Labeling Inc., one of the Midwest’s leading manufacturers of pressure-sensitive labels and labels, has installed its second SurePress® digital label press . Currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, Palco selected the SurePress aqueous inkjet label press as its first digital printing solution in 2019 and recently integrated the SurePress L-6534VW UV press to meet increased demand from clients.
“We originally chose Epson because it was a great first-class label solution to go digital. It’s economical, high quality and has helped speed up some of our jobs by taking the strain off our flexo equipment,” said Tony Lasauskas, President of Palco. “Increasing business has forced us to meet faster delivery times while providing customers with exceptional quality prints. So we turned to what we trusted.
Palco serves customers in many industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, wine, spirits and crafts, industrial manufacturing, and pet and animal products, with print jobs ranging from 200 to 30,000 labels per job. “We have had great success with our digital capabilities, especially with our customers who demand high quality and consistency,” Lasauskas said. “These customers depend on repeatability and need the same label to be accurate every time they print; it should be the same color, font and quality today as it is six months from now. »
Lasauskas noted that Palco has been able to enter new markets because labels produced by the SurePress L-6534VW production label press have exceptional durability and can withstand certain harsh environments. “With the digital varnishing capabilities of the SurePress L-6534VW, we have been able to expand our business into wine, spirits and crafts. Craft customers appreciate that we can enhance their labels with sophisticated textures and effects. »
“Epson’s production label presses are designed to support large businesses with large print volumes,” said Mike Pruitt, senior product manager, Epson America, Inc. “We are proud to see the SurePress deliver the technology features, reliability and capabilities to help usher in opportunities for growth and profit, as they have proven for Palco.
“Our customers are satisfied, which is the key to success,” concluded Lasauskas.
The SurePress L-6534VW is available with digital varnish or orange ink. The printheads, inks, LED pinning and curing lamp units, media feed and control system are all developed, serviced and manufactured by Epson. For more information, visit www.epson.com/surepress.
