What: Screen Customer Open House 2014
When: September 28-30, 2014; 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: Screen USA Demonstration Center, 5110 Tollview Drive, Rolling Meadows, IL
This three-day Truepress technology roundup will focus on Screen’s faster, higher-quality and more reliable production inkjet press platforms, including continuous-feed variable data, wide-format and label-printing systems. Open house guests will learn everything they want to know about the “major new commercial product release” during each day’s presentation.
“The excitement generated by inkjet production printing, especially in the high-volume direct mail and full-color variable data markets, shows no signs of waning,” said Ken Ingram, vice president of sales. “With fast production speeds and high-resolution color output, Screen makes inkjet printing more powerful and adaptable. Attendees will be very impressed by the demonstrations and print samples they see.”
Visitors to GRAPH EXPO 14 will have a great opportunity to complement their show-floor research by test printing several Truepress models. The Screen Demonstration Center is conveniently located 30 minutes away from Chicago’s McCormick Place, site of the annual graphics industry trade show.
Participants can take as much time as they need to evaluate the superior output quality, media compatibility and printhead technology that the Truepress series brings to large-format projects, print on demand, transactional and transpromotional printing, and label/packaging applications.
Speedier wide-format printing
The new Truepress Jet W3200UV HS moving-bed inkjet printer delivers true-quality wide-format printing at the top speed of 1,615 square feet per hour. Combining Screen’s renowned imaging precision with outstanding productivity, the new high-speed model achieves almost double the throughput of the Truepress Jet W3200UV (914.9 square-feet/hr.), launched in 2013. Print service providers have a choice of machines depending on their specific needs and the freedom to upgrade from the Truepress Jet W3200UV to the high-productivity Truepress Jet W3200UV HS in the future.
Creative ink and label substrate options
The Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet label press now can be configured to print with high-opacity white ink. Using Screen’s high-definition CMYK and white inks increases the impact of the label. The new inline corona treatment system allows the Truepress Jet L350UV to print consistently superior images on coated labels, synthetics, films and metalized substrates. Available with an inline finishing option, the Truepress Jet L350UV will be demonstrated sending labels to Screen’s newly minted JetConverter L350 label-converting line. Screen launched the JetConverter L350, which helps create an integrated workflow supporting highly effective label production, at Labelexpo Americas 2014.
B2 sheetfed printing
The Truepress JetSX inkjet sheetfed press is capable of the same level of quality for full-color print jobs commonly performed at higher cost on toner and litho presses. It is built to run variable and static jobs at 1,440x1,440 dpi in formats up to 20.8x29.1". The Truepress Jet SX handles digital and offset stocks in thicknesses up to 24 points. Its fast-drying aqueous inks are sealed with a postcoat for instant handling and processing.
“Any printers who are interested in generating new products and new sources of profitability are invited to attend the Screen technology open house,” Ingram said. “We have the digital inkjet platform that is right for you.”
