SCREEN Graphic Solutions Co., Ltd. (SCREEN GA) is pleased to announce its participation in the PRINT 17 international graphic arts exhibition, to be held from September 10 (Sun) to 14 (Thu) in Chicago, USA. SCREEN GA will use its stand (no. 2613) to introduce cutting-edge solutions featuring a wide range of its latest inkjet presses and the most advanced version of its EQUIOS universal workflow platform.
■ Truepress Jet520 series
SCREEN GA will exhibit the Truepress Jet520HD, its flagship high-speed, roll-fed inkjet press. Visitors will be able to see this system in action as it performs a real-time demonstration using SC inks that allow printing on offset coated paper without treatment or adhesion primer. The company will also introduce its cutting-edge Truepress Jet520NX equipped with a newly developed 5 inch printhead module. It can also be fitted with an extra fifth color printhead supporting functional inks. The system will be used in a live demonstration showcasing high-value-added applications.
■ Truepress Jet L350UV+LM
SCREEN GA’s high-end Truepress Jet L350UV+LM label press for food package labels will make its industry debut at PRINT 17. The system features low migration (low permeability) inks* for enhanced safety as well as a nitrogen purge mechanism that accelerates curing of UV inks. These advances provide significant improvements in both productivity and quality that open up a wide range of new applications for the press. It also delivers print speeds of up to 60 meters per minute and supports orange as well as conventional C, M, Y, K and white inks. A low-temperature chill roller can be added to the transfer section to enable printing of labels on thin film materials that are sensitive to heat.
* Low migration inks cannot be used with, or substituted for, standard inks. Migration levels are subject to individual tests. The results may vary depending on the conditions of usage.
■ EQUIOS solution platform
Visitors to PRINT 17 will also be able to inspect the latest version of EQUIOS, a shared solution platform that supports all SCREEN products. SCREEN GA will provide demonstrations of a variety of print solutions that use EQUIOS as a central hub to control devices including Truepress Jet520 series systems and the Truepress JetL350UV+LM.
