Screen shows new flagship Truepress JET 560HDX at drupa

Screen GP managing director Peter Scott explains why the Truepress JET 560HDX was the most important product for the company at drupa.

Speaking with Sprinter at drupa, Scott said the newly-designed high speed inkjet press solution represents the flagship of the company’s range with a 560mm web width offering an increase in productivity of up to 25 per cent.

“This machine prints at 150 metres per minute at 1200 x 600 dpi or 100 metres a minute at 1200 x 1200 dpi which is phenomenal,” Scott said.

“It’s a significant improvement in productivity from what we had before. And the new Screen SC2 Truepress inks offer a dramatic increase in vibrancy, density and colour gamut. These inks will print on uncoated and standard offset coated stocks without the need for a primer.

“This newly developed, high-optical density inkset allows printing directly onto offset-coated papers without any pre-treatment. The SC2 inkset’s special properties produce high vibrancy colours that ‘pop’ and have deeply saturated hues, as well as dense and neutral blacks for clearer printing of the very finest text and line work,” Scott said.

“This press is targeted at commercial print, publishing and direct marketing applications and we have already sold one unit with a commitment for three more in the US.

“In addition, a new high-efficiency, intelligent drying system enables substrates with high ink loadings to be dried efficiently, thereby supporting superior quality and wide- gamut printing on a wide range of papers. The Truepress JET 560HDX is also equipped with a new, fast-start operating system that inherits and further improves on the Truepress series’ market-proven technologies. This system ensures flawless integration of all internal hardware and software as well as with both pre- and post- finishing equipment.

“Screen anticipates that the Truepress JET 560HDX will become a benchmark contributor to the next generation of smart factories, where it is expected to introduce new economic efficiency, high-availability productivity, and print quality to satisfy the most demanding customer needs.

This was Scott’s fourth drupa and he was overwhelmed by the event.

“This was the best drupa I have attended – the overall vibrancy and enthusiasm from exhibitors and visitors was tremendous. There were some amazing stands and I was also impressed with the number of customers from Australia and New Zealand who attended and the number of meetings we had.
