Screen Media and Precision Technology Company (Screen) is a division of Screen Holdings. In addition to the printing industry, the Group is a major supplier of technology to the semi-conductor, flat panel display and electronics industry. Screen is a global supplier with its headquarters in Kyoto, Japan, and subsidiaries across Europe, America and Asia.
For more than 60 years, Screen has pioneered the development of imaging solutions to meet the evolving needs of printers all over the world. By successfully combining world class research and development with its renowned manufacturing resources, Screen ensures that despite the accelerating pace of change, the solutions that it provides help its customers stay at the forefront of their chosen markets.
The machinery built by Screen has established a strong reputation for quality and reliability and today, Screen’s computer-to-plate and digital printing solutions combines those same build qualities with sophisticated automation to give the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry.
Further testimony to Screen's expertise is the company's extensive programme of OEM and technology licensing. Screen currently works with a wide range of graphic arts companies and this often means that its competitors are also its customers.
Although the printing industry remains at the heart of Dainippon Screen, the semi-conductor business is now a bigger division in terms of sales. Screen can count all of the world's major users amongst its customer base and it holds the number one market share within its specialist sectors.
Across all divisions, there is always sharing of technologies and research and the whole Group supports a central R&D resource called White Canvas Rakusai (WCR). WCR is a non-industry specific research centre that acts as a think-tank for many different technologies as well as supporting local educational establishments.
