In recent years, demand is growing for variable data printing of direct mail, invoices and so on to meet the diverse needs of individual consumers. Given these needs, security-related printing that offers protection of personal information and anti-forgery features is becoming an urgent matter. In response to these trends, SCREEN GA has begun cooperation with DNSC on the Truepress Jet520 series high-speed inkjet press in order to enhance the level of security in printing, made possible with the use of special effect inks and technologies. Cooperation with DNSC will allow SCREEN GA to create new markets for variable data printing with magnetic (MICR) and invisible UV fluorescent inks in the fields of commercial and security printing, as well as for transpromo.
DNSC specializes in developing and manufacturing nano materials and fluids used in high-performance functional inks, such as magnetic (MICR) ink, invisible UV fluorescent inks, infrared-absorbing inks and more. The company also uses its proprietary INKcrypt® technology to recognize specific identifiable information embedded in a unique ink, which can be authenticated through a dedicated website using smart devices. This makes it possible to verify products at the worksite and implement traceability, which helps to eliminate counterfeiting. The ink provided this time is customized for the Truepress Jet520 series and enables the ideal ink jetting on the presses, effectively expanding its possible applications.
SCREEN GA continues to offer various solutions such as special effect inks to bring high levels of added value to inkjet printing systems, allowing its customers to differentiate themselves from their competitors, as the company contributes towards the advancement of the graphic arts industry.
