Screen has added a new 3.2m wide roll-to-roll option to its Truepress Jet W3200UV flatbed UV printer, which it will launch at Germany’s annual wide format exhibition, Fespa in May. The company says the new roll-to-roll option with its printer makes the Truepress Jet capable of handling a variety of flexible and rigid materials. Screen says the Truepress Jet W3200UV printer, a six colour + white device, is designed to meet the demands of the POS, signage and decor markets. Peter Scott, Screen Australia managing director, says the upcoming release of a 3.2 metre roll-feed and ‘take-up option more than doubles the appeal of the W3200UV’. Scott says, “Because of its speed, changing from a rigid flatbed job to roll-to-roll work [the printer] is all the more attractive. The same near-photographic quality will be achievable on close and distance – viewed roll media, banners, billboards, backlit panels, vehicle wraps and so on.” He says the joint development between Screen and its subsidiary company Inca Digital in the UK, gives the new machine the ability to print onto a wide range of rigid and now, flexible media up to 3.2 x 1.6m in size and up to a maximum 50mm thickness. Screen says it decided to launch the Truepress Jet W3200UV flatbed UV printer with the added roll-to-roll option at Fespa because the exhibition, held in Cologne from May 18 to 22, is ‘popular with Australian visitors’, who will get a first hand demonstration of the new printer at the show. “The aim is not only to demonstrate the printer’s significant 150 sqm/hr productivity at great quality, but also how easy it is to print high-value products, including 5 and 7-layer multi-layer backlit and day/night graphics and accurate 75lpi lenticulars at over 50sqm/hr,” Scott says. “Together with our exclusive dealer Graphic Art Mart, we look forward with eagerness to bringing the first W3200UV with roll option into Australia.”
