The Truepress Jet520HD high-speed inkjet press will be the star of Screen’s ‘Digital Everywhere’ stand at the big IGAS trade fair in Tokyo later this month.

‘It’s well worth the visit’: Peter Scott, MD Screen GP Australia.

“We look forward to warmly welcoming all IGAS visitors from Australia and New Zealand,” says Screen GP Australia MD Peter Scott. “Although the theme is ‘Digital Everywhere,’ Screen will also show latest developments in CtP and other products not yet available in our market. The venue is stunning and, of course, Tokyo night life after work is legendary. It’s well worth the visit.”

Working examples illustrating the possibilities available with a digital printing business will be on show, including many items not possible with standard offset or flexo/gravure label printing, including mixed and small lot on-demand books, variable direct mail, security tickets, food packaging labels and shrink-wrap labels for beverages.

At the core of the stand will be the EQUIOS workflow solution platform, which drives the range of Truepress Jet digital presses and can also interface with offset CtP for longer runs and mixed offset/digital production.

The star of the show will be Screen’s Truepress Jet520HD high-speed inkjet press, running SC wide-gamut inks that enable digital printing onto standard offset coated stocks.

The excellence of the 520HD + SC ink combination led to them receiving twin prizes in the US and Japan: a 2017 InterTech Technology Award from Printing Industries of America (PIA) and a 2018 technology award from the Japanese Society of Printing Science and Technology (JSPST). Newly improved drying functions have further increased print speeds to 75 meters per minute even on offset coated papers.

Attendees will have the opportunity to see a production solution built around EQUIOS that is linked from its front end, through to digital print and on to a cut and stack system provided by post-processing experts Tecnau.

The exhibit will also include the debut of EQUIOS Online Version 5, the latest edition of the platform’s Web portal system.

The Truepress Jet L350UV+LM will make its Asia-Pacific regional debut at IGAS. The high-end digital label press enables a significantly expanded range of applications including food packaging labels and shrink-wrap labels for beverages.

A laser die cutting machine from Cartes will also be on display as a post-processing solution. Technologies newly developed by Cartes are highly effective for overcoming the issue of white edges generated during die cutting. The system’s capabilities will be introduced in a demonstration of high-speed cutting using variable data.

Screen’s IGAS stand can be found in East Hall 2, No. 2-1, at the Tokyo Big Site from July 26th to 31st.
