Press release from the issuing company
Screen Europe is pleased to announce its participation at Hunkeler innovationsdays 2019 (HID 2019), where its new Truepress Jet520HD+(plus) press will make its debut. Under the theme ‘Digital Everywhere!’ Screen’s exhibit will reflect the major international impact of digital printing and the company’s ability to lead change.
The Truepress Jet520HD+ press comes with new features including an integrated Screen ‘NIR’ Dryer. This system will be a core focus of Screen’s exhibition (hall 2), along with the Truepress Jet520NX, at HID 2019 in Lucerne, Switzerland, from February 25-28th. The company will also outline its relationship with Solimar Systems and exhibit its range of digital printing solutions, including its pioneering SC inks and workflow technology.
The Screen NIR Dryer technology features newly enhanced drying functions, improving drying performance for both lightweight coated stocks and heavier weight, coated offset stocks. The results are an expanded range of applications for print service providers and even higher productivity for difficult-to-dry substrates with increased print speeds on offset coated stocks.
The Screen Truepress Jet520HD+ system is a high-definition inkjet web press with a true print resolution of 1,200 dpi and precise droplet size control at up to 150 metres per minute. The Truepress Jet520HD+ achieves the colour, texture, detail and solid ink areas expected for high-end publication and commercial work. With exclusive access to Screen SC inks, Truepress Jet520HD+ users can maximise the exceptional quality available with the press on a wide range of paper stocks including standard offset coated stocks, without the need for pre-treatment.
Visitors to HID2019 can also discover the next generation Truepress Jet520NX, developed from Screen’s more than 10 years of experience in inkjet printing. The system supports not only transactional printing, but also direct mail, transpromo, and book printing, which allows customers to extend their markets. In addition to the standard printheads, the Truepress Jet520NX can be fitted with an extra ‘fifth colour’ printhead enabling the use of Screen’s unique UV invisible ink, developed as an anti-counterfeiting measure, as well as other special inks. The press delivers superb quality, market-leading uptime and a maximum speed of up to 150 meters per minute.
Bui Burke, Senior Vice President of Sales at Screen Europe, says, “HID is always a highlight in Screen’s calendar, so we’re delighted the Truepress Jet520HD+ and NIR Dryer will debut at the event. Once again, Screen digital technology is at the forefront of innovation, resulting in market-leading speed, productivity and uptime.”
