One of the highlights of the recent Fespa exhibition was the announcement of the winners of this year’s European Digital Press Awards. The ceremony took place on the second day of the show and was attended by many of the industry’s leading companies.
In the UV Flatbed category, Screen’s Truepress Jet W1632UV was awarded the first prize for products over €200,000 – recognising its ground-breaking combination of speed and quality.
The Truepress JetW1632UV combines superior design and innovative technology from Screen and its group company Inca Digital. Printing at speeds up to 94 square meters per hour (true sellable quality) the Truepress Jet delivers class-leading productivity and astounding print quality on a range of media and sizes up to 1,600mm x 3,200mm up to a maximum 48mm thickness. The micro-droplet printheads deliver razor-sharp 1200 dpi text, fine definition and smooth vignettes. Screen’s unique brilliant inks offer a wide colour gamut and, when combined with light cyan and light magenta inks, produces stunning photographic-quality back/front-lit displays.
Brian Filler, President of Screen Europe, was delighted with the success. “This is the first time we have entered a product into these awards and we were very pleased to have come away with a reward for all the hard work carried out by the staff both in Cambridge (at Inca) and in Kyoto.”
