Feb. 8 2008 - Fespa Digital 2008 (1-3rd April) will host the fully operational and commercial worldwide launch of Screen's new Truepress Jet2500UV hybrid wide format flatbed and roll to roll inkjet printer. This printer is significant in that it marks Screen's first entry into the large format sector. A variety of display products will be produced at the show finished on the Screen stand by a Zund Flatbed Cutter.
The Truepress Jet2500UV features grayscale printheads that enables quality printing on both rigid and flexible substrates and offers a great balance between high print quality and productivity that means it can be used for a broad range of applications. As well as its flexibility of format, quickly changing from flatbed to roll, there is flexibility of resolution and speed. The Truepress Jet2500UV can select five different resolutions (300, 600, 900, 1200 and 1500 dpi), so the customer can select the best resolution depending on the productivity and the quality required.
The machine combines the benefits of a flat-bed for printing on to rigid substrates as well as the flexibility that comes from printing directly on to reels of flexible material (up to 50m long). It has a maximum production speed of almost 70 square metres per hour and can print up to seven colours including a pre-white function.
Screen brings a strong reputation of consistent and reliable precision engineering forged in the graphic arts industry to the wide format sector. The company's colour management expertise is demonstrated on the booth and at a Fespa Digital Showcase where Rob Hageman, Screen Product Manager, presents 'Flexibility through technology'.
"We have over 50 years' experience of screening, dot formation and colour management and these are central to the products we will bring to the display printing industry," says Tim Taylor, Marketing Manager of Screen Europe.
