Screen Europe will present a suite of new enhancements for its innovative Truepress Jet W3200UV dual flatbed and Roll2Roll printer at FESPA Digital 2016.
These include a Super Fine Photo mode, high-speed Billboard mode, the ability to carry heavy substrate loads and new automatic cleaning and maintenance features which maximise uptime and profitability.
The considerable flexibility of the Truepress Jet makes it a very attractive commercial proposition for many Print Service Providers (PSPs). Offering a range of print modes, it now offers a Super Fine Photo mode, which is ideal for high-definition promotional tools, and a Billboard Print mode which is a new high-speed print mode using five-pass, bidirectional printing.
The Billboard mode significantly cuts turnaround time for outdoor advertising and other materials intended to be viewed at a distance of more than five metres.
The Truepress Jet is also now capable of carrying loads of up to 75 kg allowing PSPs to print onto heavier wood, stone and glass substrates while improving safety, print quality and job flexibility at the same time.
The new maintenance and cleaning system for the Truepress Jet also ensures the press experiences the minimum down time. The press features automatic cleaning which saves 10-15% on annual ink costs and cuts down operator intervention. It is supported by an intelligent nozzle mapping system which ensures maximum uptime.
Maintenance logs for the printing system can be viewed on the touch panel monitor by day, week or month. These maintenance logs can be shared between different operators. This facilitates the planning of upcoming maintenance and contributes to the design of process schedules that ensure maximum operability.
Visitors to FESPA Digital 2016, from 8-11 March in Amsterdam, will see the flexibility of the Truepress Jet operating in both roll-to-roll and in flatbed modes on a range of flexible and rigid substrates.
The Roll2Roll system is able to accommodate rolls up to 3.2m (126 inches) wide, with the unit controlling the tension as well as the suction area and strength of the vacuum system according to the length and condition of the printing material.
This enables consistently stable printing of any roll media, providing continuous high-speed, high-precision output.
Visitors will also be able to see demonstrations of the machine’s existing capabilities including Multilayer Spot Silk, Day/night, backlit and relief printing and experience its powerful white functionality.
“This is a truly flexible printer and it just keeps on getting better,” says Bui Burke, VP, Screen Europe. “We understand that PSPs need a printer than can print on multiple substrates, produce multiple effects for a variety of applications and needs little operator intervention – and all at the lowest cost of ownership and highest ROI. This is it.”
The easy-to-use Roll2Roll system can be purchased as a factory-installed option on a new Truepress Jet W3200UV HS or Truepress Jet W3200UV ST or retrofitted to an existing model in the field. Once the flatbed table is locked, the printer effectively converts into roll-fed mode.
While the first public outing for the enhancements is at FESPA Digital 2016, the new upgraded printer is available now and can be seen in action at Screen's demonstration facilities in the UK and Amsterdam.
