Truepress JET 520NX

Optimal Responsiveness for
Mixed and Small Lot Production

The Truepress JET 520 series boasts one of the most successful lineups in its class.
It has earned this impressive track record since 2006 based on a combination of our proven technical expertise as a manufacturer of graphic arts equipment and “made in Japan” product reliability.
We have continued to develop this winning concept in pursuit of optimal responsiveness for mixed and small lot production.
The result is the Truepress JET 520NX.
This new system delivers an array of functions designed to answer the needs of printing companies seeking to build cutting-edge businesses.

  • Five features supporting the Truepress JET 520NX’s responsiveness520NX_EN.png
  • Unrivaled quality and power drive the transaction printing marketThe Truepress JET 520NX features a class-leading five inch printhead module. Even at a maximum print speed of 150 meters per minute in full color, this module is able to prevent banding, ensuring highly stable quality levels that are unprecedented for a roll-fed printing system.
    The gap between printheads has also been cut to just one-eighth of earlier SCREEN systems, providing higher quality, more stable printing.
    With its larger printhead module, the Truepress JET 520NX can deliver more speed when it is needed while also providing the flexibility to pursue higher quality in demanding jobs. More flexibility means more ability to take on work from a wider range of fields.

  • nx_img02_1.pngImproved scalability and flexibility enable the creation of an optimal print environment The Truepress JET 520NX features a unique printhead design that efficiently handles both monochrome and full color printing. Only the printheads required for each set of job specifications are used, significantly reducing ink consumption and extending the life of the heads.
    Extra printhead can also be installed to handle MICR and other functional inks. With these optional heads, jobs that previously relied on overprinting can now be output in a single pass.
  • 520NX_02_E.pngSeries-leading, high-speed throughput of 180 m/minBlack Enhanced, a high-speed monochrome option, enables the Truepress JET 520NX to achieve series-leading speeds of up to 180 meters per minute. This option ensures outstanding productivity when performing monochrome printing.
  • JI.pngJetInspectionAs print quality has continued to increase, calls for improved detection capabilities have also grown.
    The JetInspection, optional software that is capable of performing highly comprehensive real-time inspection of high-quality variable images across all pages, in addition to of course providing conventional processing of OCR fonts and decoding of bar codes. As well as significantly reducing cost and time requirements, JetInspection supports the development of new printing applications.
