Screen: A first

EUROPE Eight years after Screen launched its first high-speed web-fed inkjet press, the company announces the next generation of inkjet printing with the launch of the Truepress Jet520HD.

The first European installation of the Truepress Jet520HD will be in Holland at direct mail printer Nic.Oud in November 2014 and the second in Switzerland at direct mail printer Baumer.

The new model is 520mm wide but there the similarities end. The first big difference is the combination of speeds and resolutions. The highest quality output is achieved at 50 m/min with a resolution of 1200x1200dpi while the fastest speed is 120 m/min at a resolution of 600x600dpi.

In addition to the high resolution, the Truepress Jet520HD benefits from the printhead’s ability to produce variable size droplets. In combination with the company’s unique screening algorithms, different size droplets can be precisely placed to maximize print quality and minimize ink consumption.

The next key difference is a new high density ink which is very close to the standards used in offset printing worldwide. Using ink with such a high density allows the operator to choose between printing with the highest quality or to minimise costs by using less ink than current inkjet technologies.
