Sreen launches new Truepress Jet520HD

At Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019, Screen will launch its Truepress Jet520HD+ press with an integrated Screen ‘NIR’ Dryer. This system will be a core focus of Screen’s offering along with the Truepress Jet520NX. The company will also outline its relationship with Solimar Systems and exhibit its range of digital printing solutions, including its pioneering SC inks and workflow technology.

The Screen NIR Dryer technology features enhanced drying functions for both lightweight coated stocks and heavier weight, coated offset stocks. The results are an expanded range of applications for print service providers and even higher productivity for difficult-to-dry substrates with increased print speeds on offset coated stocks.

The Screen Truepress Jet520HD+ system is a high-definition inkjet web press with a true print resolution of 1,200 dpi and precise droplet size control at up to 150 meters a minute. It is claimed to achieve the color, texture, detail and solid ink areas expected for high-end publication and commercial work. With exclusive access to Screen SC inks, Truepress Jet520HD+ users can maximize the exceptional quality available with the press on a wide range of paper stocks including standard offset coated stocks, without the need for pre-treatment.

The next generation Truepress Jet520NX, based on the company’s more than 10 years of experience in inkjet printing, supports not only transactional printing, but also direct mail, transpromo and book printing at a maximum speed of 150 meters a minute. In addition to the standard printheads, the Truepress Jet520NX can be fitted with an extra ‘fifth color’ printhead enabling the use of Screen’s unique UV invisible ink, developed as an anti-counterfeiting measure, as well as other special inks. The press delivers superb quality, market-leading uptime and a maximum speed of up to 150 meters per minute.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
