Screen Truepress Jet L350 UV
Digital flexibility and advanced color reproduction introduce a new era in label and package printing
Even in the label and package industry, diversified, short run printing is becoming increasingly common. At the same time, clients continue to require improved costs, shorter turnaround, and higher quality and there is the ever-present question of how to create attention-grabbing products that stand out among the wide range of items available.
The Truepress Jet L350UV delivers the inkjet technology developed by Screen over many years optimized for label printing. For label printing companies looking for high throughput, high image quality, simple operation, and stability, the Truepress Jet L350UV offers the best possible solution.

High-speed printing of up to 50 meters (16.1 square meters) per minute
Screen’s proprietary grayscale printheads deliver around 80 million droplets per second, allowing high-speed printing of up to 50 meters (164 feet)* every minute. This enables throughput of 16.1 square meters (173.3 square feet) per minute for 350-millimeter-wide paper, making the Truepress Jet L350UV one of the world’ s leading systems for inkjet printing of labels.
* For a resolution of 600 x 600 dpi
Controlling paper transfer so it remains in an optimal condition maintains outstanding print quality and resolution even for highly detailed areas.
- EPC roller
- Tension controller
- Drive roller
These three devices combine to ensure the substrate is kept perfectly straight during printing ? even at the industry-leading speed of 50 meters (164 feet) per minute

Color reproduction beyond CMYK with Truepress inks
Screen’s proprietary UV Truepress inks provide coverage of a much wider gamut than previous process color inks. This enables a natural finish and higher level of quality even for label designs with subtle color differences.
Truepress inks are also low odor and create little buildup, making them ideal for post-processing such as varnishing and laminating.
Using white ink while printing onto colored media, including tranparent items, creates a high-quality finish.
Outstanding expression of gradations using Screen’ s proprietary printheads and high-quality screening
The adoption of grayscale printheads allows droplets to be printed in four steps. This provides much smoother reproduction of half-tone images, enabling smooth color reproduction from highlights to shadows with minimal graininess.
Smooth reproduction of gradations
The Truepress Jet L350UV features ultra-fine three picoliter grayscale printheads and a resolution of 600 dpi. It also incorporates Screen’s color management and screening technology. This functionality enables natural expression of gradations.
Proprietary four step droplet size
The Truepress Jet L350UV also features a proprietary four step droplet size. Color blending allows even subtle tones to be expressed beautifully, enabling the output of photo-level quality whenever required.
Straightforward operation and maintenance
With the Truepress Jet L350UV, all output-related processing can be performed from the front touch panel. This ensures any operator can easily achieve excellent print quality. Daily cleaning of printheads can also be performed at the touch of a single button. This and other simple maintenance procedures ensure the system is always in top condition, significantly increasing operational efficiency.
The controller is easy to operate, thanks to its touch panel. The intuitive interface eliminates the need for a keyboard or mouse and allows all operations to be performed entirely from the touch panel.
One-touch automatic cleaning
To clean the printheads, the operator simply issues a command from the touch panel’s maintenance screen during startup or shutdown. Ink mist and other substances causing nozzle clogging are cleaned automatically, preventing problems before they occur.
Easy on the people who use it and easy on the environment Yet another of the Truepress Jet L350UV’s many important features
Unlike earlier label printing systems, the Truepress Jet L350UV does not require the creation of plates. It also markedly reduces the generation of waste sheets caused by registration and color adjustment during printing. Likewise, while the requirement for skilled operators to perform preprocessing was a key issue with previous equipment, the Truepress Jet L350UV dispenses with this and allows virtually anyone to smoothly begin using a label printing system. Finally, the Truepress Jet L350UV meets safety standards in countries right around the world. This is truly an “ecological” printing system developed with all possible care given to both the people who use it and the environment.
Elimination of plate creation, major reduction of waste sheets
With digital printing, paper and other resources are not required for plate creation or color adjustment. The adoption of Truepress inks also enables the achievement of high-quality finishing with low ink volumes. These features both reduce running costs and allow the construction of a printing system that is easy on the environment.
