Press release from the issuing company

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. — Screen (USA), a leading supplier of digital printing systems, will present several models in its Truepress lineup at Print '09 geared toward a wide range of high-quality applications. In booth #6100, Screen (USA) also will showcase the newest version of the Trueflow SE workflow solution, along with members of the industry-leading PlateRite computer-to-plate (CTP) family.

"Screen (USA) has set the pace in digital printing innovation," said Mike Fox, president. "Each new Truepress system brings a unique configuration and robust set of production capabilities. Recent introductions in the Truepress family will open new doors of opportunity for printers and graphic arts providers."

Screen digital solutions have been installed in a growing variety of print and industrial applications where quality and proven performance are critical to printers' success.

Here are some of the highlights in store for Print '09 attendees looking to expand their business opportunities:

The Truepress Jet2500UV is a remarkably efficient grand-format UV inkjet printing system. It is compatible with substrates and applications ranging from point-of-purchase materials to posters, banners and textiles. It handles rigid substrates and rolled media up to 1.96 inches thick and 98.4 inches wide, with a maximum imaging resolution of 1,500 dpi. At 1,500 dpi, the Truepress Jet2500UV offers the highest imaging resolution in its class.

The Truepress Jet520 can function as a high-quality, variable data printing system and as a high-speed, on-demand printing system for full-color newspapers, transpromo pieces, customized direct mail and books — one of which will be printed, finished and bound on the show floor.

The four-color Truepress 344 direct imaging press has a maximum sheet size of 13.4 x 18.5 inches and print speed of 7,000 sheets per hour. At top speed, the Truepress 344 can produce a 500-sheet single-sided job from start to finish in less than 15 minutes, with a five-minute makeready. The Truepress 344 will be demonstrated in the Screen booth printing covers for the sample book project.

In addition, the Screen booth will include special presentation kiosks with product videos and print samples for visitors to learn about the Truepress Jet SX and Truepress Jet650UV.

The Truepress Jet SX, which premiered at Drupa 2008, is a sheetfed inkjet press for full-color variable data printing to meet coated and uncoated stock application requirements. The press uses water-based pigment inks to print a maximum 20.8 x 29.1-inch sheet at up to 1,440 dpi x 720 dpi and 1,600 sheets per hour.

The Truepress Jet650UV, Screen's flatbed UV inkjet printer, is a unique alternative to screen printing and pad printing in graphic manufacturing applications. The Truepress Jet650UV features an unprecedented 2,400 dpi resolution, part-to-part repeatability and print-to-substrate accuracy on plastic film, sheets and board. It has a maximum output area of 25.3 x 23.3 inches and a maximum speed of 201.5 square inches per minute.

Prepress solutions
Screen (USA) will showcase its acclaimed prepress solutions. Among the highlights is the newly developed Trueflow SE ver. 7.0 workflow management system. Additionally, Screen (USA) will present the PlateRite FX1524 large-format flexo CTP device and the high-speed, high-resolution PlateRite 8800ZX eight-up platesetter.

Trueflow SE ver. 7.0 is the newest generation of Screen's highly automated PDF- and JDF-based workflow. It not only improves CTP production through state-of-the-art file processing, trapping and integrated imposition, but is also essential for businesses that operate print-on-demand devices in a hybrid offset/digital workflow.

The PlateRite FX1524 images flexo plates, letterpress plates and thermal ablative film up to 42 x 60 inches. Its easy-loading mechanism securely mounts large-size flexo plates, increasing prepress efficiency and productivity.

In addition to the top speed of 50 plates per hour, the PlateRite 8800ZX has the flexibility to image a range of smaller plates, plus an option for resolutions high enough for the printing of bonds and other securities.

To experience Screen's diverse range of digital solutions, visit booth #6100 at Print '09, September 11-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
