Akira Hayakawa, managing director of Screen Australia says, “Our background in traditional printing – especially with colour management and screening – has served us well in our development as an end to end digital image supplier.
With an estimated 40 per cent or more share of the world’s CTP market, including OEM models, Screen says it is in a good position to continue to improve, support and replace technology in this area.
According to the company, the recently launched PlateRite PT-R1524 Flexo CTP machine is a good example, achieving 4,800dpi plate resolution with its FlexoDot screening. The company adds that this enables further quality improvements for Flexo printers – matching and going beyond offset in some cases.
Screen is preparing to have six digital presses on stand at Ipex, which will all be linked – along with the CTP – by the new Equiosnet automated workflow. Formats include super-wide flatbed UV with the Truepress Jet 2500UV, B2 sheetfed digital with the new Truepress JetSX, webfed digital with the Truepress Jet520 series and hybrid digital/offset with the Truepress 344.
Hayakawa continues, “We look forward to welcoming all visitors from the ANZ region. We would like the opportunity of demonstrating how Screen’s years of graphic arts experience can benefit printers moving into digital, or upgrading their digital capacity, with our Truepress range and Equiosnet.”
