Screen has launched a 3.2m-wide roll-to-roll system for its Truepress Jet W3200UV at Fespa 2015 exhibition.

The new system integrates with the flatbed W3200UV to turn it into a wide-format printer which can produce high-quality UV print on both sheeted and roll-fed substrates at 150sqm/hr.

The new dual-capability version of the machine made its global debut at Fespa.

A joint development with Screen subsidiary Inca Digital, the W3200UV is able to handle rolls from 750mm up to 3.2m-wide. It can be purchased with a new printer or retrofitted to an existing model. Once the table is locked, the printer converts into roll mode. 

The 3.2x1.6m flatbed table, which is driven by magnetically encoded linear motors, also features pop-up registration pins, auto-cleaning capability, intelligent nozzle mapping and a head-crash detection system.

The W3200UV features six colours plus two white-ink channels and different print modes, which can be selected depending on the finished product, including Photo Quality mode, Fine Photo Quality mode and Production mode. As a result, the machine can produce items such as display graphics, hard and soft signage, wall coverings, banners, lorry curtains, window film, POS, backlit and day/night graphics, which will enable existing Truepress customers to diversify into new markets.

“Retailers today want their print suppliers to be able to produce a wide variety of graphics and POS products using many different solid and flexible substrates, with a fast turnaround and at the best quality. No other printer comes close to this level of flexibility, ” says Bui Burke, Vice-President, Screen Europe.

There are two models of the Truepress available: the 85sqm/hr Truepress Jet W3200UV ST and the 150sqm/hr Truepress Jet W3200UV HS. Users can upgrade from the ST to the HS on-site as and when they wish.
