Screen unveiled its Truepress Jet W3200UV printer at FESPA 2013. The printer was a joint development between Screen and its subsidiary company Inca Digital using core imaging and inkjet technologies refined by both companies over many years.
The printer has been developed as a cost-effective solution for the market looking to upgrade from legacy high-quality, low speed printers to a new-generation printer that delivers high-quality and high productivity.
The new six colour + white printer has been designed to meet the demands of the POS, signage and decor markets today with the ability to print onto a wide range of rigid and flexible media up to 3.2 x 1.6m in size and up to a maximum 50mm thickness. A new print carriage design allows the printer to achieve best-in-class print speeds of 84sqm/hr (904sqft/hr). Using Screen’s vibrant Truepress inks, including high-opacity white, light cyan and light magenta, the Truepress Jet W3200UV delivers high-definition, wide-colour gamut print quality with excellent resistance to the bending and cutting of media. Users can specify colour options to suit their needs: CMYK + LcLm, +LcLmWW or +WW.
Software options for the Truepress Jet W3200UV include the choice of Wasatch SoftRIP or ColorGATE Production Server 5, alongside Screen EQUIOS workflow automation and PDF Polisher file optimisation software to improve all round quality.
The Truepress Jet W3200UV, commercially available from October this year, expands Screen’s range of wide-format UV printers which also includes the Truepress JetW1632UV and the Truepress Jet2500 hybrid printer. The company is growing its sales activities across Europe and is currently recruiting new specialist wide-format distribution partners in certain territories.
