The Truepress Jet W3200UV is a joint development with Screen subsidiary Inca Digital. The €300,000 machine uses Fujifilm Dimatix heads, with a 14 picolitre droplet size.
It has a top speed of 84m2/hr, features a 3.2×1.6m bed and can handle products up to 50mm thick. The printer will be running live on the Screen stand (Q41N), using the company’s established Truepress inks.
The six-colour-plus-white machine can be configured CMYK plus LC and LM, CMYK plus double hit white, or CMYK plus LC and LM and double hit white.
“This machine is a clear statement that we’re committed to wide-format and this represents our most ‘sellable’ product in the market,” said Tim Taylor, vice-president of marketing at Screen Europe.
“The pedigree that Inca brings to this machine is not only speed, but also productivity in terms of uptime, with things like automatic head cleaning,” he added.
The W3200UV comes can be configured with a choice of front-ends, including a Wasatch SoftRIP or ColorGATE Production Server 5, alongside Screen EQUIOS workflow automation and PDF Polisher file optimisation package.
The press will begin shipping in October, with the first beta customers set to receive machines shortly after Fespa.
“The printer represents a step change for the industry and incorporates the latest UV inkjet imaging technologies to deliver the ultimate in performance and reliability,” said Brian Filler, president, Screen Europe.
