In the realm of print on demand, Screen announced its new Truepress Jet520NX high-speed roll-fed inkjet press that will be available industry-wide February 2017. The Truepress Jet520NX features new higher resolution 5” printhead modules and will include optional extra printheads for fifth color capabilities such as MICR, invisible UV fluorescent inks and other specialty inks. The press’s unique design parks the CMY heads during monochrome printing.
Screen also presented its new inks for high-speed roll-fed inkjet that can be used for printing to standard offset coated paper without treatment or primers. Screen’s Truepress Jet 520HD will be the first press to use the new inks. It will also boast a 25% speed increase as well as a new longer frame width for supporting applications and impositions up to 54” long.
Another major announcement covered the collaboration between Inca Digital, a Screen subsidiary, and BHS Corrugated to create a third company to manufacture and market a new inkjet printer-enabled corrugated converter. The new venture will feature Inca’s new 1.6-meter print bar capable of printing at 300 meters per minute at resolutions exceeding 1200 dpi.
Also at the Screen booth, attendees saw demonstrations of advanced track and trace seal vector security print technology on the Truepress Jet L350UV and the Truepress Jet W3200UV Mark II true flatbed and true roll-fed printer with higher productivity in all print modes.
