UPM Raflatac announces the qualification of over 30 labelstocks for EFI™'s state-of-the-art digital Jetrion® Industrial Inkjet Systems, including the 4000, 4830 and 4900 series of UV inkjet presses. These two market leaders have joined forces to provide label printers and their customers with high quality labelstock solutions for complex, wide-ranging industry applications.
Label converters who use UPM Raflatac labelstocks and EFI Jetrion UV inkjet systems gain access to a host of digital benefits, including a diverse range of labelstocks that provide exceptional visual appeal and performance for demanding end-uses.

Labelstock converters pay only for the inks they use, significantly reducing their production costs. EFI's presses range from the 4000, which offers an economical entry point into digital label printing, to the 4900, a state-of-the-art press which executes digital printing and finishing in a single pass, eliminating costly downtime and consolidating work processes.
