Screen launches Truepress
Following the demonstration of a prototype at FESPA 2013 last year, Screen Europe formally launched the new Truepress Jet W3200UV wide-format printer at an Open Day at the Cambridge headquarters of Inca Digital, a Screen subsidiary company and manufacturer of the new printer, which was attended by both resellers and prospective customers.
The Truepress Jet W3200UV is a new generation, mid-range flatbed inkjet printer that incorporates several features that are usually found in more expensive machines. It can process rigid board or paper sheets up to 3.2 x 1.6m format and up to 50mm thick, or multiple smaller sheets at once. The W3200 can produce production print at 10, 14, 18 or 22 passes, depending on the speed and quality required. The printer uses vibrant and flexible Truepress inks, which deliver high-definition, wide-colour gamut print quality with excellent resistance to the bending and cutting of media. Users can also specify colour options to suit their specific needs, selecting from CMYK + LcLm, +LcLmWW or +WW.
During the Open Day, sign and print companies and resellers toured the Inca factory to see at first hand the quality build process and the detailed testing the Truepress undergoes before delivery to ensure that high print quality is achieved at 85 sqm/hr maximum productivity.
This was followed by a talk by Mike Willis, Managing Director of inkjet consultancy Pivotal Resources, when he spoke about the rapid evolution of wide-format inkjet technology and the development of commercial markets for these printers over the past decade. Giorgio Damiano of The Larger Profile, the world’s first user of the Truepress Jet W3200UV, then gave an account of his company’s experience of using the printer for a variety of work, especially quality sensitive, ‘solid colour’, display and wall panels for retailers and work on clear acrylics, for which the high opacity white ink is essential.
