SCREEN AT HUNKELER INNOVATION DAYS, FROM FEBRUARY 20-23 in LUCERNE, SWITZERLAND
20th February 2017
The biennial Hunkeler Innovation Days focussing on high-volume digital print production are on again from February 20-23 in Lucerne, Switzerland. Long supported by Screen GP, at this prestigious event the company will demonstrate its very latest models from the innovative Truepress Jet520 range of high-speed roll-fed inkjet presses, and also introduce important new features and functionality.
While Screen GP Australia managing director Peter Scott will not attend this year due to PacPrint, he says: “Our flagship Truepress Jet520HD press featuring new inkjet inks designed for printing onto standard offset coated paper will be a major drawcard. For the first time the press is integrated with a Hunkeler Roll-to-Stack solution with Dynacut function to show automatic cutting and stacking of variable sheet lengths. Our very latest Truepress Jet520NX model, debuted at drupa 2016, makes its commercial launch at this event. It will be integrated near-line to a Hunkeler Roll-to-Stack solution featuring the HL6 laser module and printing value-added transactional applications.”
Screen’s Jet520NX press is equipped with a newly developed 5-inch printhead module and supports a maximum resolution of 600 by 1,200 dpi, plus advanced ink volume control. This press can be fitted with an extra printhead for a ‘fifth color’ that enables the use of MICR black ink and other special or security inks.
New front-end functionality to automate the production of complex, personalised direct mail and books, where each item varies in page size and volume is also being demonstrated at Hunkler Innovation Days. Screen is also partnering with Horizon on their booth to demonstrate automation of binding books with variable page sizes and volumes.
Screen GP is in Hall 2 of the Lucerne Messe exhibition facility. “Any Australian and New Zealand visitors to Hunkeler Innovation Days will find a warm welcome on our stand,” says Scott.
