Screen Truepress Jet 650 debuts at Fespa

Screen Truepress Jet 650 

Screen’s Truepress Jet650UV industrial inkjet printing system will make its European debut at Fespa Digital (Stand B140, 12-14th May, Amsterdam) and can be seen printing instrument panels, lenticular graphics and other samples on rigid sheets and boards. Alongside the debut, Screen launches an ink for this innovative printer that can be used for printing on a variety of media with the flexibility to withstand three-dimensional moulding after printing. The new ink provides excellent stretchability and adhesion to substrates, which allows high-precision printing on a wide variety of media, including ABS resin, acrylic, PVC and PET in addition to polycarbonate.

The Truepress Jet650UV has highly-customisable features and provides precise, high-resolution 1200 - 2400 dpi imaging on a range of object sizes up to a maximum size of 644 x 594mm wide in multi-colour including white. It is suited to a wide range of applications, including industrial materials, sign and displays, packaging, souvenirs and interior products. It is particularly popular for the printing of car dashboard panels, where precision, visual confirmation and durability are crucial.
