ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. (October 26, 2008) — Screen (USA) is committed to creating a future in inkjet printing for sign/display printers, banner shops and specialty firms, as well as commercial printing companies seeking differentiation in unique production capabilities. The Truepress Jet2500UV grand-format inkjet printer affords companies a wider product portfolio to offer their clients. Judges at the SGIA '08 specialty graphic imaging show in Atlanta recognized the Truepress Jet2500UV with a Product of the Year award. Visitors to Graph Expo 2008 can see the award-winning color, tonality and detail of this exceptional printing system.
Several features combine to deliver the high-quality, high-precision printing required for posters, backlit signs, point-of-purchase displays and other applications demanding superior image reproduction. The Truepress Jet2500UV supports a maximum output resolution of 1,500 dpi. The eight-level grayscale printhead ensures consistent color printing on diverse substrates. Screen's screening technology enables smooth gradations.
Roll and rigid media transport systems are standard features of the Truepress Jet2500UV. An optional media extension and delivery tables increase the length of media that can be imaged. Users can attract higher-margin projects using vinyl, canvas and synthetic fabrics, in addition to such rigid media as metal, wood and plastic.
Screen's UV-curable inks
The Truepress Jet2500UV prints with Screen's original flexible UV inks. Unlike standard UV printing inks, these inks do not crack when the printed piece is bent, so the Truepress Jet2500UV can be used to print on media that will be bent or stretched after being printed.
The vivid color reproduction with UV inks ensures eye-catching graphics. UV-curable inks also allow for greater durability, without lamination, of printed images. Furthermore, UV inks provide rapid, high-quality printing on poster board, wallpaper, textiles and many other types of coated and uncoated media.

* Output speed up to 726.5 square feet per hour
* Maximum output width of 98.4 inches
