Sharing stand B08 with dealer Jet Technologies, near the main entry of PrintEx, Screen will be featuring the latest developments in the Truepress Jet L350UV label press range, with live demos including orange ink and chill roller.

“Since its introduction in 2014, the L350UV series of digital label presses has proven very successful, with over 130 shipped worldwide. With the addition of new variants such as the L350+ and +LM, we are able to offer label presses with faster speeds, special colours such as orange and low migration ink systems for food packaging applications. We now have digital label solutions for entry level, mid-range and high-end. At Labelexpo Brussels in September, we will introduce even more innovations.”
Computer-to-Plate is another area of continued success for Screen. While many consider this a mature technology, Screen has continued to innovate with higher productivity, much lower energy usage and greater laser reliability.
“Financial 2018-19 was a great year for us with CtP,” says Scott. “In Australia and New Zealand, through our dealer network of plate suppliers such as Fujifilm and WRH Global, we installed eleven latest generation CtP devices, with more to come including the VLF-size PlateRite Ultima 1600. As both web and sheetfed offset printers become more automated, they need extra productivity from the plateroom and ten-year old devices are just too slow; plate changes are all the more frequent in today’s shorter-run market.”
Screen will also show printed samples from its award-winning Truepress Jet 520HD digital web press with SC inks. This combination enables a broad range of standard offset stocks to be printed by inkjet, delivering vibrancy and resolutions comparable to the best offset. “The level of interest in the 520HD with SC inks and new drying technology is very high. It’s a market leap waiting to happen – offset printers have waited a long time for results of this quality on their standard paper stocks.”
Screen and valued partner Jet Technologies extend a warm welcome to all to visit them on stand B08 at PrintEx.
