Commercial debut for Screen GP Truepress Jet520NX inkjet press & new ink at Hunkeler Innovationdays2017
25th January 2017
Hall 2, 20-23rd February, Messe Lucerne, Switzerland
At Hunkeler Innovationdays2017 (20-23rd February), SCREEN GP will demonstrate the very latest models from the innovative Truepress Jet520 range of high-speed roll-fed inkjet presses, and introduce important new features and functionality.
The flagship Truepress Jet520HD press will be demonstrated printing onto standard offset coated paper using new inkjet inks for the first time – expanding the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of this powerful system. In another first, the press will be integrated with a Hunkeler Roll-to-Stack solution with Dynacut function to show automatic cutting and stacking of variable sheet lengths.
At drupa last year SCREEN announced the Truepress Jet520NX model and HID2017 marks the commercial launch of this press. It is equipped with a newly developed 5-inch printhead module and supports a maximum resolution of 600 by 1,200 dpi plus advanced ink volume control. This press can be fitted with an extra printhead for a “fifth color” that enables the use of MICR black ink and other special inks. At HID2017, the Truepress Jet520NX will be integrated near-line to a Hunkeler Roll-to-Stack solution featuring the HL6 laser module and printing value-added transactional applications.
Finally, new front-end functionality which automates the production of complex, personalized direct mail and books where each item varies in page size and volume will be shown for the first time. Screen also partners with Horizon on their booth to demonstrate the automation of binding books with variable page sizes and volumes.
