Epson America today announces 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, SurePress L-4033A has undergone significant developments 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. The Epson digital label press prints on a range of off-the-shelf substrates up to 13 inches wide and at speeds up to 16 fpm and fits easily into existing digital workflows. SurePress leverages Epson’s leading MicroPiezo inkjet technology and newly-developed 6-color, water-based pigment inks to ensure consistent and high quality results.
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 outstanding control, performance and results. Additional product features include:

  • High Quality Labels: Epson’s acclaimed MicroPiezo inkjet technology provides ultra precise drop formation and placement to deliver smooth gradations, color quality, and sharp detail for bar code readability, small type and line work.
  • Wide Color Gamut: Six-color, water-based, pigment ink system reproduces a wide range of colors.
  • Versatile Media Support: Prints on a range of substrates up to 12.6 mils thick and rolls 3.15 to 13 inches wide.
  • Enhanced Productivity: Allows commercial printers to transfer time-consuming, short-run jobs to the SurePress for more cost-efficient and timely results.
  • Less Waste: No chemicals or plates are required in the prepress process and less substrate and ink is used in makeready for short run jobs.
