Sean Skelly, vice-president and general manager EFI Jetrion, and KZK's Michal Silling shake on the deal at drupa

EFI has confirmed it signed a deal for a Jetrion 4900 UV ink-jet press to Czech Republic-based label convertor KZK on the second day of drupa, marking flexo specialist KZK's first move into digital technology.

KZK selected the EFI Jetrion 4900, which it bought through Czech Republic reseller Macron, after concluding that a digital press would reduce material use and waste.

"As well as makeready, time and material savings, we can now proof straight on press to final stocks, run small and medium volumes, and incorporate VDP into jobs," says Michal Silling, KZK chief executive.

"The durability of the UV-curable inks is vital, as is opaque white ink, and the integrated cutting is perfect for all run lengths. But longevity and reputation are also important, and EFI offers us the support we need when adding digital to our existing analogue production processes."

He adds: "Since deciding to purchase the Jetrion 4900, which we'll drive with EFI Fiery, we've looked at other benefits that can be gained from this investment."

Fourteen-day print show drupa ends tomorrow (May 16th).
