Screen launches monochrome inkjet web
Screen GP Australia is launching the new Truepress Jet520HD mono, a specialised high speed continuous feed inkjet system for monochrome printing directly onto offset stocks.
“Monochrome digital output still accounts for a significant portion of printed output,” says Screen GP Australia managing director Peter Scott. “Book printing, trade paperbacks, pharmaceutical multi-lingual pamphlets, lottery tickets and transactional print continue to be consistent and on-demand production of required numbers has become standard. On-demand production has been advancing rapidly, particularly for higher-resolutions, with this resolution and ability to print digitally to coated and uncoated stocks driving demand.”
The 520HD mono joins the rest of the HD colour lineup but is the first all-mono version. Resolution is up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi with Screen’s SC inks, which also feature what Screen says are “rapid drying technology and xecellent substrate adherence”. Speeds of up to 150 linear metres per minute are achievable.
“Screen’s Truepress ink SC range has already established an impressive track record with other Truepress Jet520HD colour models, yielding offset quality. These inks give the press the ability to print directly onto offset coated papers, without primers,” notes Scott.
The compact configuration of the Truepress Jet520HD mono provides greater flexibility when choosing the installation site. It is also designed for enhanced usability. Output instructions, confirmations and other processes can easily be managed from a tablet device, noticeably improving operational efficiency.
Screen has designed the Truepress Jet520HD mono to be added to a production line as a dedicated monochrome press, or used to replace toner-based production printers. The company claims that in both cases, the system is capable of delivering major increases in efficiency for monochrome output.
