SCREEN Develops Inks That Enable Printing on Coated Paper Using High-speed Roll Type Inkjet Systems

May 31, 2016

SCREEN Graphic and Precision Solutions Co., Ltd. (SCREEN GP) has developed new inkjet inks that can be used for printing on standard offset coated paper. The inks have been created to be fully compatible with SCREEN GP’s cutting-edge Truepress Jet 520HD high-speed roll-fed inkjet press.

SCREEN GP plans to exhibit a range of samples showcasing the technology at drupa 2016, the world’s largest exhibition of graphic arts equipment, to be held in Dusseldorf, Germany from May 31 to June 10. Commercial release of the inks is currently scheduled for January 2017.

In recent years, the printing industry has increasingly focused on the creation of diversified, small volume materials that are personalized to match the various attributes of individual consumers. This trend is particularly evident in the one-to-one direct mailings for cars, luxury goods and other items requiring the inclusion of premium images. In this case, there has been a growing demand for improved ability to print on coated paper due to its high-quality finish.

SCREEN GP has been closely monitoring these changing needs. In response, it has developed groundbreaking new inks that enable its Truepress Jet 520HD high-speed roll-fed inkjet press to print directly on to most offset coated paper currently available. The inks are also compatible with printing on a wide range of paper types, including popular standard coated paper and high-quality inkjet paper, as well as standard plain paper.

In addition, SCREEN GP’s unique technology provides impressive abrasion resistance for offset level printing, enabling printing output that makes the most of the paper’s original surface texture. These new inks also noticeably reduce bleeding between colors, achieving a high-grade image quality approaching offset printing. Finally, they are highly resistant to clogging of printhead nozzles, significantly improving system maintainability.

SCREEN GP is focused on providing a comprehensive range of fully-formed inkjet solutions for the commercial printing industry. In addition to consolidating the company’s position in the market, these new technologies are intended to contribute to the continuing expansion of the overall printing industry.
