Making its North American trade show debut at SGIA Expo 2012, the Truepress Jet W1632UV, the latest addition to Screen’s (Booth 4235) family of wide-format inkjet printing systems, brings new levels of speed and precision to the sign and display industry. The use of 12 picoliter micro-droplet printheads enables crisp text, fine definition and smooth vignettes, while a maximum apparent resolution of 1,200 dpi ensures photographic quality on printed images for signage that is intended to be viewed close up. Screen’s flexible Truepress UV inks (CMYK plus light cyan and light magenta as standard) provide a wide-gamut color space and the flexibility to be bent or cut.
The Truepress Jet W1632UV images on large-size media up to 62.9x125.9 inches with a maximum substrate thickness of 1.9 inches. Offering high-speed printing of 1,011.8 sqft/hr, the best in its class, the Truepress Jet W1632UV can quickly print jobs that require short turnarounds or involve a large number of copies. The automated cleaning station helps maintain printheads in the best condition for production. A nozzle mapping function provides continuous printing with no loss of throughput in the event of missing nozzles.
AnaJet (Booth 3027) is showcasing AnaRIP version 2.0, the software that enables AnaJet’s mPower series direct to garment printer to reproduce images onto garments and other products.
