Over the last few weeks and months SCREEN Graphic Solutions has released details of new product launches and investments within the print and label markets including a new roll-fed digital inkjet press.

Most recently SCREEN has detailed the 100th worldwide sale of its Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI-S 5 colour inkjet press. 

The press has been installed at Italian label specialist Impronta Digitale, becoming the third SCREEN press installed at the company.

Linda Picello, co-owner of Impronta, comments: “This new press opens doors to new markets, increases our production capacity, and guarantees that our clients receive labels of consistent quality quickly and efficiently.”

Speaking about the investment in the technology, Picello adds: “What drove us to invest in digital presses is their ability to start production at any moment and produce labels of consistent quality and brilliance on every print run, while remaining competitive in the market. 

“Our SAI machines operate ten hours a day, in two shifts, five days a week, with an average production length of 1,000 metres per job – handling print runs from 30 to 10,000 metres. Investing in SCREEN’s technology was the right choice to allow us to grow and improve over time.”

At the start of February, SCREEN announced it had finalised the development of its new Truepress JET 560HDX roll-fed digital inkjet press.

The system joins SCREEN’s line up of presses for the commercial printing, direct mail, and publishing markets.

The JET 560HDX has been developed for the complex and fast turnaround times of commercial printing as well as the flexible format sizes and shortening of production runs for publishing.

In order to respond to changing markets, SCREEN introduced its Truepress JET 520HD+ and 520 HD AD printers with the Truepress SC and SC+ ink sets. This made SCREEN the first manufacturer to provide a practical solution to printing directly onto offset-coated papers with an inkjet system without the need for inkjet treatment.

The new Truepress JET 560HDX is a further development in printing innovation according to SCREEN as it can operate in a variety of print modes with a variety of paper sizes and resolutions.

The new press will be displayed at SCREEN’s Inkjet Innovation Centres in the US and in Europe as well as at drupa 2024.

The MA-L8900 is able to set up to 600 plates, while the SA-L8900 has a capacity of 120 plates. Both are optional units

At the end of 2023, SCREEN also announced its faster and more sustainable thermal computer-to- plate lineup with the upgraded PlateRite HD 8900N II series due to be released in the near future.

Like the previous 8900N series the new range will include E, S, and Z models which each target specific needs. 

All models can handle a wide variety of plate sizes ranging from 304 x 305 mm up to 1,165 x 950 mm. Each model can also be combined with both MA-L8900 and SA-L8900 autoloaders, enabling the plate supply to be fully automated. 

This latest launch has been made in response to the major shift towards diverse, small lot jobs with short turnaround times, opening up new opportunities to utilise digital presses.
