Screen Launches Truepress Jet1600UV-F
At PRINT 09, Screen, which owns Inca Digital (recognized as one of the pioneering companies of flabed inkjet technology), introduced its new Truepress Jet1600UV-F. This UV-LED-based wide-format printer has an imaging bed of 63 x 122 inches. It can reach speeds of up to 140 square feet per hour on substrates up to 1.96-inches thick.
This new flatbed machine is built in part by Mimaki, which also recently released the Mimaki JFX 1631.
Ink deployed by the Truepress Jet1600UV-F is “hard-dried” using ultraviolet rays produced by dedicated light emitting diodes (LED), which is a growing trend in UV-printing applications because of energy savings and a significant reduction of heat generation. Among other factors, this heat reduction also allows for the use of a broader range of substrates, such heat-sensitive materials like foam and channel boards, PVC, acrylic and styrene panels.
Screen claims it is employing a new imaging system within the Truepress Jet1600UV-F, featuring eight individual piezo-based printing heads that can emit up to seven dot sizes. A new head-positioning system incorporates what the company refers to as a “high-resolution linear scale,” which is said to better reproduce text – down to 3-point text. The machine hits a maximum resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi.
