Eight years after Screen its first high-speed web-fed inkjet press, the Kyoto-based company announced the next generation of inkjet printing with the launch of the Truepress Jet520HD.

The new Truepress Jet520HD is 520mm wide, and can achieve its highest quality output at 50 m/min with a resolution of 1200x1200dpi while the fastest speed is 120 m/min at a resolution of 600x600dpi.  While the initial machines will be launched as four-colour units, the Truepress Jet520HD has a modular structure to allow for extra head units to be added in the future. Each printhead will be controlled independently so that if you are only printing with one colour, all of the other printheads remain capped. However, there is no time delay when switching from a single-colour to multi-colour job. The Truepress Jet520HD will be launched with an optional inspection unit based on Screen’s JetInspection, the system that checks the whole page and compares the printed result to the RIP data.
