Screen unveils its Truepress Jet 520HD mono

Screen GP Australia has released its new high-definition mono web digital printer, the Truepress Jet520HD mono, the latest addition to its Truepress Jet520HD series of high-speed roll-fed inkjet presses. The system is a specialised model for monochrome printing.

“Monochrome digital output still accounts for a significant portion of printed output,” Screen GP Australia managing director Peter Scott said.

“Book printing, trade paperbacks, pharmaceutical multi-lingual pamphlets, lottery tickets and transactional print continue to be consistent and on-demand production of required numbers has become standard.

“On-demand production has been advancing rapidly, particularly for higher-resolutions, with this resolution and ability to print digitally to coated and uncoated stocks driving demand.”

The 520HD mono joins the rest of the HD colour lineup but is the first all-mono version. Resolution is up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi with Screen’s SC inks, which also feature rapid drying technology and high levels of substrate adherence.

The company said the solution is able to achieve speeds of up to 150 linear metres per minute.

“Screen’s Truepress ink SC range, has already established an impressive track record with other Truepress Jet520HD colour models, yielding offset quality. These inks give the press the ability to print directly onto offset coated papers, without primers,” Scott said.

He added that the compact configuration of the Truepress Jet520HD mono provides greater flexibility when choosing the installation site. It is also designed for enhanced usability. Output instructions, confirmations and other processes can easily be managed from a tablet device, noticeably improving operational efficiency.

Screen has designed the Truepress Jet520HD mono to be added to a production line as a dedicated monochrome press or used to replace toner-based production printers. In both cases, the system is capable of delivering major increases in efficiency for monochrome output.
