Seiko Epson Corporation ("Epson", TSE: 6724) today announces the global commercial launch of the SurePress L-4033A, a highly versatile short-run digital label press designed to print labels efficiently and profitably. Since first shown in prototype form three years ago the SurePress L-4033A has undergone significant development to meet the growing demand for fast turnaround, low volume, and multiple version label jobs.

SurePress is designed for label converters taking the first steps into digital printing or expanding their existing digital printing capacity, as well as general commercial printers looking to add digital label printing to their portfolio of services. The Epson digital label press prints on a range of off-the-shelf papers and film up to 330mm wide and at speeds up to 5m/min and fits easily into existing digital workflows. SurePress leverages Epson's leading MicroPiezo ink jet technology and newly-developed six-color, water-based, pigment inks to ensure consistent and high quality results.

The SurePress L-4033A demonstrates the company's strong commitment to delivering professional solutions to the packaging and labelling industry. Epson is working with industry-leading partners on every aspect of digital label production from color management to substrates and finishing options in order to deliver the best control, performance and results.
