In parallel, featured on the stand will be the revolutionary Scitex Vision CORjet press for corrugated and screen printing applications. Information on Scitex Vision’s complete range of industrial digital solutions will also be available to the public. A multi-lingual team will attend the show in order to address visitors.
The TURBOjet is the latest in Scitex Vision’s range of wide-format inkjet printers and has been specifically developed to meet the exacting requirements of the display and large format sector. “Superb image quality, wide colour gamut, high print speed and low printing costs” are among the claims of Scitex Vision for the TURBOjet.
The TURBOjet’s ability to produce up to 400 sq m/hr makes it the fastest wide-format digital system on the market according to Scitex Vision. It provides high image quality, with text sizes as small as 8 point reproducing with outstanding clarity and legibility. According to the manufacturers, the TURBOjet is ideally suited for display quality applications, indoor and outdoor signage, bus shelters and billboards, as well as window and exhibition graphics. It prints from roll to sheet (up to 1.63m x 3.66m) with a resolution of up to 448 dpi.
The TURBOjet is capable of printing on an extensive range of substrates from coated and uncoated paper, vinyl, banner, canvas, Tyvek™ and polystyrene to fabric.
It can print large-format images, as well as A0 and A1 sized posters, even printing multiple A2 images on a 1.6 x 3.6 full size sheet, in very high quality. The TURBOjet is optimised for production when using dedicated TJ100 ink from Scitex Vision VisionInk.
The software is user-friendly requiring minimal training before operators can queue jobs, change orders, tile RIPped files, cut and paste two or more files, add pictures to one layout, and perform other routine functions. In addition, the advanced Onyx® ProductionHouse® RIP ensures that printers have the best tools at their disposal to produce superior printed results.
The future of industrial screen & corrugated printing
Meanwhile, Scitex Vision’s CORjet brings on-demand digital printing to the corrugated packaging sector. For time-critical short-run corrugated printing, the Scitex Vision CORjet offers a cost-effective, value-adding solution. Running straight from standard digital formats, the Scitex Vision CORjet eliminates lengthy platemaking and mounting time and makes it possible to print short-runs of cartons, POP/POS, and other applications cost-effectively complementing or replacing screen, flexo and litho.
“Cross-overs” for the different processes vary from approximately 1500 sq m for flexo, and up to around 300 copies for offset litho and screen. However, products printed on the Scitex Vision CORjet can also be easily varied in colour and content enabling the run, for example, of language versions comprising very few copies, or products that are adapted for specific regions, outlets, occasions or individual locations.
Scitex Vision CORjet was designed to overcome the limitations of the prepress costs of flexo, screen and offset litho. The growing demand for niche applications and short-runs (for example, for test marketing of new products, new product launches, promotional campaigns of new products, more creative packaging and 3-dimensional displays also suitable as exhibition booth graphics) are perfect jobs for the Scitex Vision CORjet, and extends the versatility and efficiency of printing corrugated products as well as traditional screen printed rigid media.
Conceived as a completely automated industrial production system, from front-end to print delivery, the Scitex Vision CORjet has been designed to be integrated into existing industrial printing workflows, possibly replacing old screen lines. The press will deliver full sheets up to 160cm x 320cm and up to 10mm thick, at an amazing throughput of up to 150 sq m/hr yielding up to 29 full format sheets per hour in three different printing modes.
The 600dpi high-resolution, piezoelectric drop-on-demand inkjet printing utilises the unique Aprion technology. Using four (optional 6) process colours and fast drying water-based, abrasion resistant, waterproof pigmented inks, the image is produced direct-to-sheet without impact to the surface.
The Scitex Vision CORjet wide format digital press has been optimised to print on rigid substrates such as corrugated cardboards, foam boards, compressed cardboards and other paper-based liners on rigid substrates.
