Screen shows exciting opportunities at Fespa 2010 with Truepress Jet2500UV and Truepress Jet1600UV-F
High-quality inkjet will be put through its paces with a variety of media on stand 489 in Hall B3 at Fespa 2010
The Truepress Jet2500UV is an extremely versatile large format UV inkjet printer which visitors will be able to see producing outstanding quality work on a range of materials including the challenging corrugated cardboard and polypropylene for POP applications. It has the perfect balance of high quality and high productivity for the wide format market with nearphoto quality printing and short turnaround times.
"In tough market conditions, the key is to offer flexibility and innovation to customers," says Screen Europe Marketing Manager Tim Taylor. "With its highquality digital inkjet printers, Screen enables its customers to provide innovative ideas and flexible opportunities to their markets."
The combination of highprecision output at a maximum resolution of 1,500 dpi and highspeed printing at up to 67.5 square metres per hour on either rollfed or flatbed format material gives the flexibility to meet the expectations of the most demanding customers while delivering a good return on investment.
The multilevel grayscale printhead enables the output of smooth gradations thanks to Screen's exclusive screening technology. The Truepress Jet2500UV also supports material up to 2,500mm wide and 50mm thick and uses fastdrying UV inks to improve production and turnaround.
The Truepress Jet1600UV-F is a highquality flatbed printing system launched in 2009 for the sign and display sector. Its highperformance production of vivid, fullcolour at 1,200 x 1,200 dpi on a variety of media gives significant advantages in the field of backlit graphics, wideformat posters, POP displays, commercial furniture and construction signage.
The inks used by the Truepress Jet1600UV-F are harddried using UV produced by dedicated LEDs. This UV-LED light source generates very low heat during imaging and therefore accommodates heatsensitive materials, such as foam and channel boards, PVC, acrylic and styrene panels, without warping or distortion. The UV-LED light source also lasts longer and uses less electricity than conventional UV lamps, so its impact on the environment is minimised, plus it provides a workplace mostly free of VOCs.
A newlycreated imaging system features eight individual printheads that support rapid printing, with enhanced productivity that allows a rapid succession of fastturnaround jobs. There are two types of UV ink, for flexible media and rigid media, which can be stretched by up to 200% as well as cast or bent. The rigid ink resists friction and exposure to damaging chemicals and is particularly well suited to printing on aluminium composite panels and decorative illuminated film. The addition of white ink ensures highquality output on transparent, metallic and coloured media.
"The Truepress Jet1600UV-F delivers high precision and high flexibility," says Rob Hageman, European Product Manager at Screen Europe. "This easytouse flatbed device is built around the latest technology for inkjet printing and UV-LED curing."
