Purchase maintains Totem.com.pl’s position ahead of competitors
Short- to medium-run book specialist, Totem.com.pl, has purchased a Screen Truepress Jet520HD+, the company’s second Screen press following its purchase of a Truepress Jet520HD in 2018. The original purchase was made with a view to increase capacity and improve cost-effectiveness for its work in the competitive book market.
“We initially invested in Screen’s technology as we were in need of a top-quality inkjet press that would meet the growing market demand for short-run book printing,” states Michał Rejnowski, Totem.com.pl’s CEO. “Our Truepress Jet520HD exceeded expectations, giving us excellent printouts – equivalent to the print quality of offset presses – and, with rising demand, we were keen to invest in a second machine.
“Essentially, the purchase of a second Screen press means that we will be prepared to meet increased demand with the rapid turnarounds – essential to keep our customers returning. We can also continue to print on the range of standard offset media that our customers are used to. This means there are no drawbacks to choosing digital.”
A user of Screen SC inks, Totem.com.pl has been able to maximise the exceptional quality already available on its Truepress Jet520HD and print on a wide range of paper stocks including standard offset coated stocks, without the need for pre-treatment.
Jolanta Kurowiak, President and Owner, Reprograf S.A., (Screen’s trusted Polish reseller) says, “Totem.com.pl approached us with a view to purchase a Screen Truepress Jet520HD+ and we were not surprised. The benefits from the first installation were clear to see and we are more than happy to continue to facilitate this fruitful business relationship.”
This announcement reinforces the recent news that 100 units of the Screen Truepress Jet520HD and Truepress Jet520HD+ have now been shipped worldwide.
The Truepress Jet520HD+ with the integrated NIR Dryer, is a high-definition inkjet web press. It provides a true print resolution of 1,200 dpi and precise droplet size control at up to 150 metres per minute. The press is fully integrated with Screen’s workflow software, EQUIOS, including accurate imposition and consistent colour management, across different output devices from the same user interface – essential for multiple printers.
Rejnowski continues, “The newly acquired printing system is a landmark purchase for our company and signifies our confidence in digital book printing. The second press will be used for colour printing on coated media and as support for the more demanding monochrome printing orders. Our relationship with Screen moves from strength-to-strength and this latest acquisition is fine proof of that.”
