NSW custom label specialist Guru Labels has ordered a second Xeikon digital roll to roll press and a Rotra Engineering finishing line to keep up with a surge in demand.

“Guru Labels is experiencing record growth and we wish to announce we’ve ordered a brand new set of digital print and finishing equipment due to be commissioned in Q3 this year,” Guru sales director Nick Lowe told customers via Twitter.

“The additional equipment will consist of a second Xeikon digital roll to roll press, a custom Rotra Engineering finish line and associated new slitter rewinders.

“Once installed, our new press will deliver a considerable boost in print capacity and overall muscle to stabilize lead times and implement a true express service for urgent jobs,” said Lowe. “The additional equipment will also deliver exceptional manufacturing redundancy and give us the opportunity to consider larger print runs that would normally be out of reach using stand-alone digital printing.”

The pioneering labels business, based at Tuggerah on the NSW Central Coast for 17 years, installed its first Xeikon 3030 digital press in 2015, backed up by the first GM (Grafisk Maskinfabrik) laser die cutting system in the country.

Guru is also asking for customer feedback over plans to overhaul its Trade portal in a bid to improve and streamline processes from quotes through to shipping.

“Next week you will receive an invitation to our Trade Customer Service Survey (via email) to participate and comment on Guru Labels’ range of products and services we offer, from initial registration through to goods received. It goes without saying that the data we receive from this survey will be kept strictly confidential and will only be used to better improve our service to the trade.”

Guru Labels has been in operation since April 2001, growing from a two-man operation to now employing 12 full-time staff members and eight casuals.
