Screen (USA) to Showcase Digital Printing, Automated Workflows
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL--October 13, 2008--Screen (USA) will showcase digital output devices and workflow solutions at Graph Expo 2008 designed to help production professionals and print providers maximize their business opportunities. Product demonstrations in booth #3808 will build on the enthusiastic reception the Truepress family of digital printing systems enjoyed at Drupa in June. In addition, Graph Expo will provide the venue for the North American debut of the latest upgrade to Screen's PDF- and JDF-based workflow management system and a new flexo/letterpress computer-to-plate (CTP) recorder.
Inkjet opening new markets
Following its commercial launch at Drupa, the Truepress Jet2500UV grand-format inkjet printer is expected to generate considerable interest in Chicago. This versatile printing system combines print resolutions up to 1,500 dpi with Screen's unique image screening and an eight-level grayscale printhead to produce photo-quality printing with a maximum output width of 98.4 inches. The Truepress Jet2500UV satisfies a wide range of advertising and sign/display applications, thanks to its hybrid design with roll and rigid material transport systems as standard features. An optional media feeder table increases the length of media that can be used. Optional white inks enable vibrant printing on transparent and colored media.
Commercial and book printers expanding into the short-run and variable color printing markets can leverage the Truepress Jet520 in their pressrooms. The single-pass inkjet press's blend of productivity and print quality creates tremendous added value. With its maximum speed of 420 feet per minute, the Truepress Jet520 can print on a wide range of paper types, and with a resolution up to 720 dpi x 720 dpi, the Truepress is perfect for books, catalogs, direct mail, statements and newsletters.
Printing by the book
Screen is partnering with Standard Finishing Systems to demonstrate the Truepress Jet520's open interface to postpress systems. The Screen booth will feature the press equipped with the Standard Hunkeler UW6 unwinder and RW6 rewinder for automated inline paper handling. Additionally, in booth #2246, Standard Finishing Systems will process 180-page perfect-bound books and 8-1/2x11-inch tri-fold mailers from paper rolls containing full-color pages printed on the Truepress Jet520 and four-color book covers printed on the Truepress 344 direct imaging press. The processing configuration will include the Standard Hunkeler Gen6 CS6-II rotary double cutter and LS6 nonstop stacker, Standard Horizon BQ-470 perfect binder and Standard Horizon HT-70 three-knife trimmer.
