Proofing - Wide Format
Wide-Format UV Inkjet Printing System
The Screen Truepress Jet1600UV-F2 wide-format inkjet printing system is the latest addition to our Print-on-Demand (POD) portfolio. This easy-to-use flatbed device’s advanced functionalities provide significant benefits for the packaging, folding carton and corrugated printing market. As a short-run press, the Truepress Jet1600UV-F2 is an affordable solution for printing directly onto a wide variety of substrates when the length of runs makes them too costly to print on traditional presses.
High resolution, variable dots
In addition to offering a maximum resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi, variable droplets make it possible to reproduce up to seven dot sizes. The Truepress Jet1600UV-F2’s four-color printing results in smooth tints and gradations and sharp reproduction of small text. The Truepress Jet1600UV-F2 prints legible 3-point text even in large-size prints.
Flexible and rigid inks
The Truepress Jet1600UV-F2 uses FlexLED ink for flexible media and HardLED ink for rigid media. The flexible UV ink can be cast, bent and stretched up to 200 percent of its original length. It is ideal for printing on white media. The rigid ink resists friction and chemicals. Inks are hard-dried using UV rays produced by dedicated light emitting diodes (LEDs). The UV-LED light source generates very low heat, enabling imaging of heat-sensitive materials without warping or distortions.
Greater versatility with white ink
Adding white ink ensures high-quality color output regardless of the media, even when transparent, colored or metallic media are used.
New support for clear inks
The Truepress Jet1600UV-F2 also supports the use of clear inks (only available for hard-type inks). The clear inks can be applied to desired points on the sheet to create a spot gloss or spot matte finish.
Post-cure unit now standard
The Truepress Jet1600UV-F2 comes standard with a highproductivity post-cure unit. The unit’s secondary curing light accelerates the hardening of inks, resulting in throughput of up to 254 square feet per hour.
You can take advantage of the special features of UV curing in multi-layered printing to achieve three-dimensionality and emboss effects that utilize the thickness of inks.
Optional roll unit
This option permits continuous printing onto flexible roll-fed media, including paper, PET and PVC.
