Variable Printing System
Practical solution for the monochrome printing market

Targeting the growing need for diversified, small lot printing to create new business.
The new Truepress Jet520EX Monochrome Advanced concentrates the core functions required for monochrome printing in a single compact unit that also features a two-fold increase in physical resolution and specialized functions for book printing. It combines various features that precisely meet both the rising need for diversified and small lot production centered around on-demand book production, as well as customer requirements for lower costs and faster turnaround.
This versatile system also delivers industry-leading quality thanks to SCREEN’s proprietary inkjet technologies.

  • 520ex_ad_img01.pngOn-demand book businessThe Truepress Jet520EX Monochrome Advanced offers both postpress processing capabilities and storage performance equal to offset printing, as well as the flexibility to print single copies.
