ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. -- In response to the keen interest in the Truepress 344 shown at Graph Expo 2006, Screen (USA) will host "Truepress Technology Days" on February 5-7, 2007, at the Screen headquarters in Rolling Meadows, Ill. By invitation only, the event will afford attendees the opportunity to devote as much time as their schedules permit evaluating this innovative four-color direct imaging press outside of a trade show setting or plant tour.
Screen experts will provide an in-depth look at high-quality digital printing using the compact and highly automated Truepress 344 printing solution. Demonstrations held each morning and afternoon will emphasize the on-press plate imaging, processless thermal plates, digital wet offset printing and user-friendly automated systems.
In addition, Screen will showcase the Trueflow Rite TP workflow management system designed for efficient, reliable production on the Truepress 344. Screen also will highlight printing with conventional AM or Spekta hybrid screening technology.
The Truepress 344 enables prepress and printing companies of all sizes to move to high-quality on-demand supply of printed material. It has a maximum sheet size of 13.4 x 18.5 inches and a maximum imaging area of 13 x 18.1 inches, with a top printing speed of 7,000 sheets per hour. Operators can print everything from simple business cards and envelopes to four-color postcards, flyers, brochures and posters.
The press features a Multi Array Laser Diode (MALD) imaging head that simultaneously images all four processless plates at 2,400 dpi. Job changeover times are less than six minutes.
"Graph Expo was the perfect launch venue for the Truepress 344," said Robert Prah, vice president of sales. "Its precision and versatility attracted an enormous amount of attention. We are looking forward to the discussions and feedback that will come out of the demonstrations in February."
