Sydney-based packaging and labeling specialist Luminar has expanded its digital printing business with the installation of a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet press, supplied by Jet Technologies.

Backed by its decade-long partner, Jet Technologies, Screen’s Truepress Jet L350UV has proven to be Australia’s leading digital inkjet label press. Since deploying the L350UV, Luminar has expanded its digital printing capability and streamlined its existing digital operations.
Positioned as a hybrid digital labeling 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 diverse customer base, we needed a solution that would increase our printing efficiency without sacrificing quality or attention to detail. The decision to select the L350UV came after a long association with Jet Technologies, where they have consistently proven the unparalleled reliability and high productivity of the L350UV,” said Matt Ellis, general manager of Luminar. “Since working with the new system, we have found it to be incredibly efficient and agile; offering a wide range of hardware solutions that are used to serve our existing customers while 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 and uptime for a flexible digital labeling and packaging system, up to 60 linear meters per minute. The top-of-the-line SAI S model works with up to seven colors and white ink at 50 meters per minute.
Ellis adds, “Since 2018, our flexible packaging sales have increased over 100% year-over-year and, in an effort to continue serving our customers at the highest level, we have estimated that the L350UV was the best solution for us and our customers to meet this growing business. The local support of Screen and Jet Technologies made this decision a no-brainer, and we are excited about the added strength this system will bring to our already strong printing capabilities.
David Reece, Director of Sales at Jet Technologies, said, “We have worked with Luminar for many years and are very excited about the digital printing opportunities the L350UV will bring to the business. The L350UV is an incredibly reliable and highly productive machine and will support Luminar’s continued growth in multiple markets.
Peter Scott, Managing Director of Screen GP Australia added: “It is fantastic to welcome Luminar to the Screen Truepress Jet L350UV family. Luminar has become a major force in the label and packaging industry, from fairly humble beginnings working in a garage and then into a small commercial enterprise. and now the production center in North West Sydney. Screen and our distribution partner Jet Technologies are proud to be part of this next phase of growth for Matt Ellis and his team. »
