Heerhugowaard, The Netherlands – Screen has successfully completed the installation of Europe’s first Truepress Jet520HD at Dutch-based direct mail company Nic. Oud. The machine was delivered in early December and despite being one of the first customer installations in the world, the machine has already been handed over for live production.
Maurice Gelissen, Managing Director of Nic. Oud said: “Even during the training period we needed to print several million documents so we were already confident that the machine could deliver on its promise. Not only are we seeing great print quality but the Truepress has changed the level and speed of service that we are able to offer our clients.”
Nic. Oud’s goal when it started its inkjet research was to find a solution that would allow the company to produce results that matched the quality levels associated with the ‘graphic arts industry’. From the start, project leader Christel van de Wal was keen to set the company apart from the standard level of inkjet. “As soon as we saw the first results from the Truepress Jet520HD, we knew that this was what we had been waiting for. Until then, we had never been convinced that our customers would accept inkjet and while it was tempting to make the investment earlier when all of our competitors were installing machines, we are very pleased we waited until now to make our decision.”
Screen will be demonstrating the Truepress Jet520HD at the Hunkeler Innovationdays (Messe Lucerne, 23rd to 26th February). innovationdays.hunkeler.ch
