Screen has been in the digital inkjet press business since 2006 with the Truepress Jet range, notes managing director Peter Scott.
This range has evolved into two distinct categories – high-speed inkjet and labels and packaging inkjet. All are webfed for speed and economy.
In high-speed commercial there are two families – the Truepress Jet HD (high-definition) and Truepress Jet NX. The HD series can come with SC inks for offset quality on offset stocks. The NX series is faster and more suited to transactional, direct marketing and mono book production.
For labels and packaging, Screen has the Truepress Jet L350UV series and it recently announced the Truepress Pac830F for flexible packaging on up to 830mm web width.
Screening technology and the Equios workflow are Screen’s own and the machines have proven to be extremely reliable and durable, even in the most punishing environments.
“This, and the fact we do not impose ‘click’ charges makes Screen Truepress Jet presses a more profitable investment in the long run,” says Scott.
“Screen has always believed that the printer should be in control of their costs, and not the supplier.
“Our business proposition is quite simple – we make and sell what we believe to be the best digital presses, we do not charge per ‘click,’ we are competitive on ink costs, printheads and parts, and we service and support our machines for longer than anyone else.”
Scott sees a growing list of applications for Screen’s digital range, including books, magazines, direct mail, transactional, coupons and lottery tickets, labels, shrink sleeves, stand-up pouches, folding cartons, corrugated, sacks and bags and flexible packaging of all kinds.
“Better profitability is to be found in packaging applications, thanks to the value-add of various converting methods.”
