By: SCREEN Americas

KYOTO, Japan—SCREEN Graphic Solutions Co., Ltd., also referred to as SCREEN GA, announces the launch of its new high-density Truepress SU ink. The advanced black ink is designed specifically for use with the various uncoated papers handled by its high-speed roll-fed Truepress JET 520HD mono inkjet system.

SCREEN GA initially released its Truepress JET 520HD mono and Truepress SC inks as a set in 2020. All-purpose SC inks can be used on many different substrates including coated, IJ-treated, and uncoated or untreated paper. Today, the press is also able to meet a variety of needs in the monochrome printing segment thanks to its combination with SCREEN GA’s new and improved Truepress SC+ ink.

Demand for monochrome printing continues to be the strongest in publishing applications, which is creating increasing opportunities for high-speed roll-fed digital inkjet presses such as those in SCREEN GA’s Truepress JET series. These black-only applications require optimum print quality, high optical density print and no bleed-through on uncoated papers. In response to this trend, SCREEN GA has focused the performance of the SU ink to deliver on these attributes while also lowering the total cost of ink.  

Moving forward, users of the Truepress JET 520HD mono systems will be able to choose between SC+ inks, which are suitable for a variety of papers, and the SU ink, which delivers superior quality printing on uncoated papers. This will give users greater flexibility when meeting the individual quality requirements for different monochrome materials. With these advances, SCREEN GA will offer its customers the next generation of printing production systems by combining the convenience and productivity of high-speed roll-fed digital inkjet presses with digital workflows and the ability to select inks that deliver higher quality.

As a leader in the printing world, SCREEN GA is dedicated to enriching lives and continuing to make the world more colorful through print. This commitment underpins its goal of helping to create better lives and a more sustainable society for everyone.
