Truepress Jet520EX Advanced

On-demand book business

Potential for inkjet to open up the on-demand book business

The 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. Thanks to its maximum resolution of 720 dpi, it is able to faithfully reproduce even finely detailed text and also offers significantly improved linking with both pre and postpress devices.
Despite the great potential offered by on-demand book printing, this field has remained consistently difficult to enter. The Truepress Jet520EX Monochrome Advanced now provides the key to establishing a successful business in this demanding area.

Further improvements to the specialized functions required for book printing

・Optimal imposition whatever the binding method
Linked with EQUIOS, the Truepress Jet520EX Monochrome Advanced is equipped to handle a multitude of impositions for book binding specifications including saddle stitching, and perfect binding from a single paper roll. In addition, it also provides easy layout functions for accessory items such as the crop marks and barcodes required for postpress processing. The Truepress Jet520EX Monochrome Advanced is a full support system for high-quality on-demand book production requiring rapid turnaround.


・Optimized printing of outline text
The Truepress Jet520EX Monochrome Advanced features a text choke function that combines high-resolution RIP plus anti-aliasing technologies. This function even adjusts the thickness of outline text to ensure it retains the same sharpness and quality.


・Greater freedom in positioning of accessories
The layout of barcodes and other types of accessory can all be arranged to suit the size of the paper and finished item. This reduces paper wastage to a minimum and allows the creation of a cost-efficient and environmentally friendly workflow.

SCREEN’s proprietary inkjet printhead and screening technologies deliver a maximum output resolution of 720 x 720 dpi. At this resolution, text remains sharp with clearly visible edges.

520EXad_img_06_e.jpg Linking with various book binding machines
Reflecting the trend toward diversified and small lot production, manufacturers of binding machines have all released roll paper compatible systems. The Truepress Jet520EX Monochrome Advanced can be linked with various binding machines. This ability reliably meets the needs of many customers related to perfect binding and saddle stitching for minimum lot runs and books containing variable data.

No concerns about lost or incorrectly ordered pages
Printing a single copy using a continuous sheet of roll paper eliminates collation in postpress processing and removes any concerns about missing or incorrectly ordered pages. This approach also includes linking with the book binding machine using barcode printing, leading to the construction of a more reliable production management system.
