Comprehensive new solution includes wider colour gamut and enhanced ink
AMSTELVEEN, Netherlands – SCREEN has announced the launch of the SC+ Color Success Package for the Truepress Jet 520HD series. The comprehensive new solution includes upgraded press hardware and software, a wider colour gamut, and SC+ ink – an enhanced version of the series’ current ink, SC. The Color Success Package will be available for new presses as well part of an upgrade solution for existing Truepress Jet 520HD owners.
SCREEN announced the first version of SC ink at international trade fair Drupa –held every four years in Düsseldorf, Germany – in 2016. The ink was designed to be printed on both standard coated and uncoated papers without the need for pretreatment or primer. It met printers’ needs for a quick-drying, fast-absorbing ink without the added costs of premium grade papers or treatments.
Demand for the ink’s capabilities have grown considerably as print markets face ongoing challenges of paper shortages. SC ink provides versatility for those times when last-minute substitutes for paper stock originally requested by customers are necessary. With an expanded gamut and improvements in hue purity, SC+ inks allow printers to match colours in the widest possible range and at a greater accuracy than SC ink.
The Color Success Package with SC+ empowers printers to deliver printed products tailored to meet each of their customers’ individual needs, whether that is lower cost to produce through ink savings or more vibrant colour and precise spot colour matching. The Color Success Package includes the SC+ ink, tools and training.
The Color Success Package is available now with new presses. SCREEN has also begun the process of scheduling field upgrades for existing customers who choose to convert to the new solution.
