Print on demand monochrome books
Although there has been a significant move to use colour in many areas of printing, black and white book production remains a large and important part of the industry – particular in academic and reference publishing where highly valuable information is produced.
The care and attention paid to the production of black and white pages is just as high as any colour book and the equipment used is just as important. It is for this reason that Screen has introduced an inkjet press specially for black and white printing - the Truepress Jet520EX Mono. By using multiple rows of heads to print black, we are able to keep density and image resolution even at higher speeds.
With the same ease of use, reliability and consistency as the rest of the Truepress Jet520 family, as well as the same flexibility to integrate with other parts of the production process, the EX Mono is the perfect machine for black and white book printers who want to move to digital for the first time or want to upgrade from their existing toner-based systems.
Print quality monitoring
Unevenness is often cited as a problem when using multiple printheads. The Truepress Jet520 series features built-in quality control scanners, reading a printed test chart and automatically correcting for any problems. The unit is also designed to use special techniques to prevent problems with jammed nozzles. The Truepress Jet 520’s automated printing quality monitoring ensures consistent, high-quality results throughout each job as the system prints.
Suitable for a wide range of paper types
While there is no question that printing on inkjet paper gives the best possible results, the Truepress Jet520 is also capable of outstanding quality on many different types of conventional offset paper including bulky book woves.
A variety of installation setups
The Truepress Jet520 can be set up in a variety of shapes, depending on how the printing units and paper roll unwinder/rewinder units are positioned. These include a straight line design (I-shape), a partial loop design (U-shape), and a right angle design (L-shape). Simply choose the arrangement that best suits your needs.
