“We’re a young company that aspires to always be on the leading edge of the industry, providing the best and newest label printing services to our clients. When we decided to move into digital ink jet label printing, we carefully and critically compared the available options. We chose SCREEN as their solution met all our requirements,” says Alberto Pereira, CEO of Etifam. “The Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI-E was simply the best option in terms of the price-quality ratio,” he adds.

Higher quality than conventional presses

Like in other countries, Portuguese clients increasingly require relatively small editions of labels and expect these to be delivered quickly. “This can only be done with digital presses, as these are a cheaper alternative for small print runs and offer excellent, often even better quality than conventional presses,” says Pereira. “SCREEN’s technology reduces the waiting time for our customers while providing the same or higher quality than conventional presses.”

Pereira adds: “Since we started working with this fantastic equipment, we have been able to increase our profitability, doing more jobs per shift and improving our margins on the smaller runs. We are happy and so are our customers because we can deliver what they need and within short timeframes. The press is extremely easy to work with. Our operators adapted quickly. From the beginning, the print quality consistency of the SAI press has been better than we could imagine and we have been able to work with the majority of our traditional substrates without any special treatment or coating.”

Building on the technology of the most stable and successful printers of its kind, the SCREEN Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI series offers improved colour reproduction as well as superior scalability, enabling it to meet an even wider variety of market needs than previous generations of inkjet technology.

Serving olive oil and wine sectors

Founded in 2004 and based in the Famalicão region, in the North of Portugal, label specialist Etifam aims to stand out for its innovative nature, commitment to technological equipment and a young and dynamic team. The company has been growing steadily since its inception and serves a differentiated portfolio of clients in the olive oil and wine sectors, as well as in specialised niches of the cleaning products business. It offers a comprehensive production process, from graphic development to printing and finishing.
