SCREEN Europe Unveils New Inkjet Innovation Centre

For the first time, SCREEN Europe showcased all its series of innovative presses for label, packaging, commercial and CtP printing in one room, in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands, with a ‘Grand Opening’ exhibit late last month.

More than 100 customers, sales agents, partners and local community representatives attended the celebratory event at SCREEN Europe’s new headquarters.

‘Establishing the Inkjet Innovation Centre reflects our confidence in the status of the printing industry and SCREEN’s position as a leading player in the market for inkjet digital printing equipment,’ said Eiji Kakiuchi, chairman SCREEN Holdings. He added, ‘We overgrew our previous building due to our solid and steady growth in existing inkjet and CtP markets and also needed more space for the next wave of industrial inkjet digital innovations for both existing markets, such as label and commercial, as well as new markets such as flexible packaging.’

In the impressive 2000sqm showroom and demonstration centre, visitors can explore SCREEN’s cutting-edge inkjet digital printing solutions across three distinct product lines: Truepress JET for Commercial Printing and Direct Mail, Truepress LABEL for label printing, and the new Truepress PAC range for Flexible Packaging. The new IIC also showcases SCREEN’s well-established CtP product range.

‘In addition to showcasing our expanding range of digital printers, the Inkjet Innovation Centre will serve as a hub for innovations in digital printing. Collaborating closely with our software and finishing partners, our aim is to provide customers with end-to-end printing solutions, offering a glimpse into the future of the printing industry,’ said Osamu Yamagata, President SCREEN Europe.

SCREEN Europe was honoured to host distinguished guests, including AJ Kakiuchi, Chairman of SCREEN Holdings, Yukiyoshi Tanaka, President SCREEN Graphic Solutions, and Takanori Kakita, Advisor of SCREEN Graphic Solutions, alongside the esteemed Mayor of Aalsmeer, Gido Oude Kotte, for a momentous ribbon-cutting ceremony at the official Grand Opening event. Japanese drummers marked the occasion with a performance of traditional Taiko drums.
