Screen launches wide-format UV flat-bed printer
Today Screen, the manufacturer of specialist inkjet print on demand technology, launches the Truepress Jet W3200UV wide-format UV flat-bed printer. The new printer is unveiled at FESPA 2103 for the first time worldwide (Booth Q41N, 25-29 June, ExCel, London).
The Truepress Jet W3200UV has been a joint development between Screen and its subsidiary company Inca Digital using core imaging and inkjet technologies refined by both companies over many years. The printer has been developed as a cost-effective solution for the market looking to upgrade from legacy high-quality, low speed printers to a new generation printer that delivers high-quality and high productivity.
The new six colour + white printer has been designed to meet the demands of the POS, signage and decor markets today with the ability to print onto a wide range of rigid and flexible media up to 3.2 x 1.6m in size and up to a maximum 50mm thickness. A new print carriage design allows the printer to achieve best-in-class print speeds of 84 sqm/hr (904 sqft/hr). Using Screen’s vibrant Truepress inks, including high-opacity white, light cyan and light magenta, the Truepress Jet W3200UV delivers high-definition, wide-colour gamut print quality with excellent resistance to the bending and cutting of media. Users can specify colour options to suit their needs: CMYK + LcLm, +LcLmWW or +WW.
Software options for the Truepress Jet W3200UV include the choice of Wasatch SoftRIP or colourGATE Production Server 5, alongside Screen EQUIOS workflow automation and PDF Polisher file optimisation software to improve all round quality.
The Truepress Jet W3200UV, commercially available from October this year, expands Screen’s range of wide-format UV printers which also includes the Truepress JetW1632UV and the Truepress Jet2500 hybrid printer. The company is growing its sales activities across Europe and is currently recruiting new specialist wide-format distribution partners in certain territories.
“The launch of the Truepress Jet W3200UV reinforces our commitment to the wide-format market,” says Brian Filler, President, Screen Europe. “The printer represents a step change for the industry and incorporates the latest UV inkjet imaging technologies to deliver the ultimate in performance and reliability. Our customers want the assurance that they can produce consistent quality graphics, around the clock if need be, with a printer that delivers low total cost of ownership and the Truepress Jet W3200UV is the solution.”
