The new Screen Truepress Jet 560HDX roll fed digital inkjet press

Screen has finished developing its new Truepress JET 560HDX roll fed digital inkjet press.

The company says the new press will drive further innovation in printing.

It can operate in a variety of print modes, handling paper widths up to 560mm. Printing at speeds up to 150 meters per minute, it offers a maximum resolution of 1200dpi x 1200dpi. Compatible with Screen GA’s Truepress ink SC2, it prints directly onto offset coated papers without any pretreatment. Screen says the SC2 ink set’s special properties produce high vibrancy colours that pop with deep saturated hues as well as dense and neutral blacks for clearer printing of even fine text and line work.

Additionally, the new high-efficiency, intelligent drying system enables substrates with high ink densities to be dry efficiently, supporting superior quality and wide gamut printing on a wide range of papers. In addition, a new fast-start operating system ensures flawless integration of all internal hardware, software, and finishing equipment, according to Screen.

Screen will show the new system at drupa 2024.

Flexible print solutions

The company says the commercial printing market requires flexible print solutions with high value economics. It requires more complex work with faster turnaround times, shorter print runs, multiple versions, late-stage revisions, and variable information. It says these requirements have created new business opportunities for high productivity digital inkjet presses offering offset-like economics.

Screen adds that, in the publishing market, aggressive economics and high quality and flexible format sizes enable a growing number of companies to benefit from the capabilities of high-speed, roll-fed digital inkjet presses. It says that , while facing the increasing shortening of production runs and demand for book of one requirements, book production systems need to be optimised for extremely low to mid-volume production.

The direct mail market’s needs for high productivity and flexibility when running lightweight uncoated papers and thick, attention-getting high-gloss self-mailers at low fixed and variable costs are needed to help offset the rising cost of postage. Driving direct mail production costs as low as possible will encourage marketers to continue to utilize the valuable medium.

In response to these changing market realities, Screen says it has introduced its Truepress JET 520HD with the Truepress SC and SC+ ink sets as a practical inkjet solution for printing directly onto offset coated papers without the need for an inkjet treatment.
