Screen Showcases Truepress Jet2500UV at GOA

Monday, January 26, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. -- The Screen (USA) booth at the 34th annual Graphics of the Americas promises three lively days of equipment demonstrations, comparison shopping and critical investment decision-making. Screen kicks off the trade show season at GOA 2009, February 26-28 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, and booth #1586 will feature exceptional technology to help print professionals improve business growth and bottom lines.

Show attendees will see for themselves why the Truepress Jet2500UV was recognized as New Product of the Year by the Digital Printing & Imaging Association at SGIA '08. This powerful grand-format UV inkjet printer sets new performance standards for sign and display production.

With its true hybrid ability, the Truepress Jet2500UV is designed to add value to printing companies' operations. State-of-the-art digital imaging technology coupled with both roll-to-roll and flatbed capabilities expand the quality, productivity and flexibility of inkjet printing. Users can alternate between flexible and rigid substrates in minutes without incurring the cost of a second machine.

The Truepress Jet2500UV can run roll-to-roll media, including paper, vinyl film, banner and many other materials, depending on the job requirements. Products that can be created using the roll-to-roll format include posters, banners, backlit signs, fine art, billboards, decals and vehicle wraps.

Rigid substrates open up new markets for signs, transit advertising, exhibits and displays. The Truepress Jet2500UV easily handles high-quality printing on acrylic, glass, tiles, doors, blinds, plastics, plywood, ceramic tile and corrugated plastic materials up to 1.96 inches thick.

The Truepress Jet2500UV supports a maximum output resolution of 1,500 dpi. The drop-on-demand eight-level grayscale printhead coupled with Screen's exclusive screening technology enable smooth gradations for photo-quality color printing.

Screen has long been at the forefront of driving the shift from film-based prepress production to thermal-plate imaging. At GOA, Screen will showcase the big advantages for small firms that adopt the PlateRite Niagara thermal computer-to-plate (CTP) recorder. The PlateRite Niagara eight-up platesetter enables even the smallest print shops to offer higher quality and service more sophisticated clients.

The PlateRite Niagara meets the budgets and plate needs of small and medium-size operations utilizing two-page to eight-page presses. It precisely images thermal plates from 12 x 14.6 inches to 41.7 x 32.2 images. Its compact design and output speed of 11 plates per hour add more facets to the benefits of going direct-to-plate.

Screen's workflow demonstrations will focus on the newest version of Trueflow SE. Trueflow SE v6.0 builds on the trusted workflow management system's productivity-driven features to increase functionality in a hybrid offset/digital printing environment. It incorporates Adobe(R) PDF Print Engine(R) for consistent and predictable output. Data and process management in a hybrid workflow are unified under a single system, immediately before printing begins.

In addition to standard file checking, OPI support, trapping, imposition and other prepress functions, Trueflow SE v6.0 automates CTP and digital print production using JDF-based job tickets. Existing users can transition from a PDF and PostScript environment to a JDF workflow and achieve seamless communication with management information systems.

Screen is partnering with IBF Corp. (booth #686) to highlight the PlateRite 4300. IBF is the market leader in Brazil for offset plates and graphic arts films. IBF also is a major distributor of chemistry, paper and prepress equipment. The PlateRite 4300 accommodates two-up, four-up and six-up plate production. It has a peak output speed of 21 plates per hour.
