The Truepress Jet2500UV combination flatbed and roll-to-roll inkjet printer makes its UK debut at Sign & Digital UK 2008 (stand C22, 22nd – 24th April) marking Screen’s entry into the UK wide-format printing sector.
The Truepress Jet2500UV features grayscale printheads that enables quality printing on both rigid and flexible substrates and offers a great balance between high print quality and productivity that means it can be used for a broad range of applications. As well as its flexibility of format, quickly changing from flatbed to roll, there is flexibility of resolution and speed. The Truepress Jet2500UV can select five different resolutions (300, 600, 900, 1200 and 1500 dpi), so the customer can select the best resolution depending on the productivity and the quality required.
The machine combines the benefits of a flat-bed for printing on to rigid substrates as well as the flexibility that comes from printing directly on to reels of flexible material (up to 50m long). It has a maximum production speed of almost 70 square metres per hour and can print up to seven colours including a pre-white function.
Screen brings a strong reputation of consistent and reliable precision engineering forged in the graphic arts industry to the wide format sector.
“We have over 50 years’ experience of screening, dot formation and colour management and these are central to the products we are bringing to the display printing industry,” says Brian Filler, Managing Director, Screen UK. “We have built considerable expertise in digital print technologies over the last 20 years, which was further strengthened by our acquisition of Inca Digital in 2005.
Although the Truepress Jet 2500UV is the first of our large format solutions developed for the wide format market, the printer is the result of considerable R&D. The digital wide format market is competitive, but I feel the Truepress Jet2500UV brings a new level of flexibility, quality and productivity that makes it stand head and shoulders above the rest. “
