Screen Truepress Jet2500UV Helps Olympus Group Stretch its Capabilities
Versatility to accommodate roll-to-roll and rigid materials at least 2˝ thick and at least 80 inches wide was a priority in selecting a new printing system.
“The Truepress Jet2500UV handles both roll media and rigid substrates,” Arkin pointed out. “Its 98.4˝ width is an added benefit. We can rotate a 4x8' board.”
The ability to print tiny droplets of ink was an absolute must. The smallest ink dot size with Olympus’ existing UV inkjet equipment was 30 picoliters. One customer in particular had an important specialty project that called for 6 picoliter droplets.
“We compared every device capable of printing 6 picoliter droplets,” Arkin said. “They all print a sharp enough dot at 6 picoliters, but not all of the printers are true hybrid systems. The Truepress Jet2500UV offered a wider range of capabilities to satisfy the various demands of our other products. For instance, it offers white ink as an affordable option, which we employ in every possible combination.”
Arkin said he was confident at the time of the purchase, based on previous experience with Screen prepress imaging technology and software, that the Truepress Jet2500UV would combine Screen’s “high precision and attention to detail.”
“The print quality is as high as we had hoped,” he stated. “It is a solid machine. Soon after the Truepress Jet2500UV was installed, our other printer went down for a couple days. We moved a lot of work to the Screen device. It performed very well in the backup role. That reconfirmed our belief that we made the right choice.”
