26th June 2013
Dainippon Screen is bolstering its side format standing in the global market with the launch of its Truepress Jet W3200UV at the FESPA trade show in London this week.
“The launch of the Truepress Jet W3200UV reinforces our commitment to the wide-format market,” said Brian Filler (pictured), president, Screen Europe. “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.
“Our customers want the assurance that they can produce consistent quality graphics, around the clock if need be, with a printer that delivers low total cost of ownership and the Truepress Jet W3200UV is the solution,” he said.
The Truepress Jet W3200UV, which is commercially available from October this year, expands Screen’s range of wide-format UV printers, which also includes the Truepress JetW1632UV and the Truepress Jet2500 hybrid printer.
The Truepress Jet W3200UV has been a joint development between Screen and its subsidiary company Inca Digital using core imaging and inkjet technologies refined by both companies over many years. The printer has been developed as a cost-effective solution for the market looking to upgrade from legacy high-quality, low speed printers to a new generation printer that delivers high-quality and high productivity.
The new six-colour + white printer has been designed to meet the demands of the POS, signage and decor markets today with the ability to print onto a wide range of rigid and flexible media up to 3.2 x 1.6m in size and up to a maximum 50mm thickness.
A new print carriage design allows the printer to achieve best-in-class print speeds of 84 sqm/hr (904 sqft/hr). Using Screen’s vibrant Truepress inks, including high-opacity white, light cyan and light magenta, the Truepress Jet W3200UV delivers high-definition, wide-colour gamut print quality with excellent resistance to the bending and cutting of media.
Software options for the Truepress Jet W3200UV include the choice of Wasatch SoftRIP or ColorGATE Production Server 5, alongside Screen EQUIOS workflow automation and PDF Polisher file optimisation software to help improve all-round quality.
