Flatbeds + Superwides




Screen USA has  introduced its new Truepress Jet1600UV-F, a 63-inch UV LED flatbed that has been developed specifi cally for the sign and display business. It joins the company’s 98-inch Truepress Jet2500UV, which was introduced at the 2007 SGIA show.

A 5-color printer (CMYK+W), the Jet1600UV-F is capable of printing 140 square feet/hour in quality mode (without white; 70 square feet/hour with white), and 82 square feet/hour in high-quality mode (41 square feet/hour with white). It can hit a maximum resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi and its eight piezo variable-drop printheads produce up to seven dot sizes. The Jet1600UV-F can accommodate a diverse array of substrates up to 1.96-inches (50mm) thick.

Two types of ink are available to users—FlexLED for rigid materials and HardLED for fl exible meda. FlexLED, reports Screen, can be stretched by up to 200 percent, as well as cast or bent, and exhibits excellent performance on white media, including substrates employed for packaging, P-O-P displays, and life-size panels. HardLED is particularly well suited for aluminum panels and decorative illuminated film.

The inks are hard-dried using UV rays produced by dedicated LEDs. The UV-LED light source used by the Jet1600UV-F generates very low heat during imaging, Screen indicates, increasing the range of media that it can handle effciently. As a result, the Jet1600UV-F accommodates such heat-sensitive materials as foam and channel boards, PVC, acrylic, and styrene panels without warping or distortions. And, says the company, the UV-LED light source lasts longer and draws less electricity than conventional UV lamps so its impact on the environment is minimized.

A Truepress Jet 1600UV RIP is standard.
