Screen GA demonstrates its commitment to digitally printed packaging at inprint 2018
SCREEN Graphic Solutions Co exhibited at InPrint – the industrial print show. InPrint is the industry’s showcase for high-level expertise, cutting-edge technology, product launches and industrial print solutions. SCREEN GA featured an extensive range of products and solutions that aim to show the strength of its leadership in the field of industrial inkjet printing.
SCREEN GP IJC Ltd, a subsidiary of SCREEN GA, is developing the print engine technology, which will be integrated into a BHS Corrugated Inline Digital Print Solution. This print engine will be printing single-pass, aqueous inks onto widths up to 2.8m wide at speeds of up to 300m/min. On display was a section of the print engine, as well as print samples and an on-stand video showing the 1.6m wide single-pass technology demonstrator in action.
SCREEN GA’s successful Truepress Jet L350UV+LM label printer features low migration (low permeability) inks that offer unrivalled levels of functionality to food packaging label production. The Truepress Jet L350UV+LM was awarded ‘Best Label Printer’ by the European Digital Press Association (EDP) in 2018. The printed samples of those recognised technologies were available on the booth.
SCREEN was named an award recipient for the SCREEN Truepress Jet520HD using SC Inks in Printing Industries of America’s 2017 InterTech Technology Awards. Truepress Jet520HD delivers offset quality printing with the vibrancy and rich colour gamut required for high-quality publishing and commercial printing. Combined with SCREEN GA’s specially-developed SC Inks, Truepress Jet520HD owners have the ability to print on the same coated litho stocks that they currently use on their offset presses without pre-treatment or primer. The printed samples were showcased on the stand.
SCREEN used its stand to profile its growing range of bespoke robotic material handling systems, which are increasingly being installed at businesses looking for automation and productivity improvements. Visitors to the show were also be able to see the print samples including the metal plate with Inca Digital’s Onset M B1 digital inkjet technology.
