Robert Malliotis, director of the Adelaide-based firm, said the PlateRite FX870II system would allow the firm to produce high-quality labels for its wine, food, cosmetics and beverage clients.
“Adding the Screen flexo CTP will enable us to produce plates consistent with our standards day in and day out by just sending the design data to the RIP. We already achieve such consistency, but using analogue photopolymer plate making, which can take longer,” he said.
Signature Labels is family-owned business that is based in Adelaide and employs 25 staff.

It is the second firm in the past month to order a PlateRite FX870II system after Dragon Printing in Sydney.
The system is capable of imaging up to 4sqm of photopolymer plates per hour at a maximum image area of 850x735mm, according to distributor Jet Technologies.
Jet Technologies director Jack Malki said: “It has been a good PacPrint for us on a range of products but to take another order for flexo CTP is the icing on the cake. Signature Labels is a very welcome addition to the family of Jet Technologies’ customers.”
Screen managing director Peter Scott said Jet Technologies had been doing an excellent job in the narrow-web market with Screen’s flexo CTP technology.
“They know this market so well and adding a prestigious customer like Signature Labels is very welcome indeed. Screen will install and service the equipment with Jet Technologies continuing to supply its established consumable products to the company,” said Scott.
