Unimax upgrades with New Zealand’s first L350UV SAI

Unimax, a prominent Labels & Packaging printer based in the Auckland suburb of Avondale upgraded to Jet Technologies L350UV SAI S Inkjet printer, making it the very first of its kind in New Zealand.

Sold and supported in combination by Jet Technologies and Fujifilm NZ, the L350UV SAI replaced an older model L350UV, bought over 5 years ago that had completely revolutionised their business, moving them from Letterpress to the Digital age.

Back in 2017, there was disbelief as jobs that required setup times of 4-5 hours on their letterpress machines, would set up and print in a matter of minutes. That enabled Unimax to expand substantially their client base and grow their business in higher-value markets, where precision artwork and multiple SKU’s were no issue at all for their new press.

Along came the new L350UV SAI S and the print results have been taken to the next level, with the addition of additional colours (orange and blue) to substantially increase the colour gamut. Productivity increased by 20% on all jobs and by an astounding 67% for jobs containing Screen’s high opacity white. The range of substrates that Unimax could print onto has also increased substantially with this model, enabling Unimax to print on thinner synthetic stocks, as well as a thicker range of paper and hybrid products.

Unimax Director Dinesh Kumar said “We have always been huge fans of inkjet – we were the first to bring the L350UV into New Zealand and can proudly say that we are now the first with the new SAI model. The original press was extremely reliable over its 5 years with us and upgrading was an easy decision, especially with the service we receive from both Jet Technologies & FFNZ”.
