Screen GP’s new Truepress Jet520NX high-speed, roll-fed inkjet press is equipped with a newly developed 5-inch printhead module and supports a maximum resolution of 600 x 1,200 dpi plus advanced ink amount control. These features deliver significantly enhanced colour reproduction compared to the existing model, said the OEM. In addition to the standard printheads for four ink colors, the Truepress Jet520NX can be fitted with an extra printhead for a “fifth color” that enables the use of MICR black ink, invisible UV fluorescent ink, and other special inks. These combined technologies support the creation of product manuals, direct mail and invoices based on customer databases, as well as printing that incorporates various effects intended to prevent counterfeiting (MICR).

Screen GP specifically designed the Truepress Jet520NX to facilitate smooth replacement of its existing Truepress Jet520. It expects the new system to become a key element in printing companies’ ongoing efforts to realize the potential of new printed products and solutions. Since Screen GP originally launched the Truepress Jet520 series in 2006, its reliable print quality and outstanding speed have helped it to build an impressive reputation throughout the printing industry. The launch of the Truepress Jet520NX in 2017, said the OEM, is intended to further improve on these achievements.
