Screen Americas has been cited as a recipient of the Printing Industries of America (PIA) 2017 InterTech Technology Awards, for its Screen Truepress Jet520HD using SC Inks.
The honourees were announced following careful consideration by a panel of industry judges. The awards will be presented at the 2017 Premier Print Awards and InterTech Technology Awards Gala on September 10 in Chicago, Illinois held during the PRINT 17 trade show, where the Truepress Jet520HD will be exhibited.
The award for innovative excellence honours the Truepress Jet520HD high-definition inkjet web press for the commercial print, direct mail, and publishing markets. The press delivers offset quality printing with high printing speeds. According to PIA, judges were particularly impressed by the specially developed SC Inks that give 520HD owners the ability to print on the same coated litho stocks that they currently use on their offset presses without pre-treatment or primer.
The Truepress Jet520HD delivers realistic images with 1200 dpi true resolution and precise droplet size control, achieving the colours, textures, details and solid ink areas expected for high-end publication and commercial work. The enhanced design opportunities that improve response rates of personalised marketing campaigns make the Truepress Jet520HD an appealing alternative to offset/digital hybrid and toner-based production for direct mail advertising.
The Truepress Jet520HD features a breakthrough combination of proprietary engineering and SC Inks with absorption technology for direct inkjet printing on offset coated papers, eliminating any pre-processing or additional primer coatings typically required of conventional inkjet technologies.
