Screen GP has introduced two new label presses to its range: the Trojan T4 and TC-2.
The Trojan T4, an all-in-one label press line with inline finishing, offers printing, laminating, die-cutting, slitting and rewind for an end-to- end solution. It runs at up to 18mpm with a maximum print width of up to 223mm across a 250mm web, with image quality up to 1600 x 1600dpi.
Peter Scott, managing director, Screen, says: “It is a mini-marvel unlike any other solution for short-run and variable versioned labels. The engineering standard is first class and the die-cutter can be fully or semi-rotary and used alone to create die-cut blanks or to finish labels from another press. Best of all both the T2-C and T4 are fully supported by Screen GP’s local engineers and Jet Technologies’ expertise.”
The Trojan T2-C, a desktop label printer, uses Memjet printhead technology. It can print on pre-diecut or continuous label reels, for offline finishing. Print speed, resolution and width is the same as for the T4.
Scott says: “The Trojan T2-C has proper web feed and take up with tensioning and yet fits any size print department due to its compact desktop footprint. Ink supply can be either by internal 250ml cartridges or, for higher productivity, external two litre tanks. At either 1600 x 1600dpi or 1600 x 800 dpi, the image quality is superb.”
While the TC-2 has the same print speed, resolution and width as the T4, unlike the T4, a 1200Kg floor-standing unit, the TC-2 is a desktop label printer, and simpler to fit into print shops.
The company has been selling another Trojan press in the mini-digital labels segment, the Truepress Jet L250AQ. Sold through channel partner Jet Technologies, Screen featured the it as the sole piece of equipment on its stand at Visual Connections, due to its ease of setup.
Scott says, “We now have a complete range of digital label presses from desktop 18 metres per minute to high-end UV at 60 metres per minute.”
