Screen Americas turned heads at this Spring’s recently concluded USA 2017 Inkjet Summit when it was officially named the event’s Company to Watch Out For. Attendees at the fifth annual summit held in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, heard numerous case study presentations in direct mail, transactional and commercial print from various sponsors – and chose Screen over other sponsor finalists for the award.

This was Screen’s fourth participation at the conference, which is an invitation-only hosted seminar aimed at graphics and printing company managers and executives who want to learn about the impact of inkjet production printing technology for their businesses and investments. Organized and managed by nGage Events and NAPCO Media, the summit provided strategic-level insights for printing industry leaders who strive to improve their companies.

“We’re pleased that our customer-focused approach is being recognized,” said Ken Ingram, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Screen. “We’re proud of this recognition and confident in what it means – that printing industry leaders are indeed watching us. So we’re more committed than ever in responding to that trust and interest with industry-leading innovation.”

With 130 attendees, including printing professionals from a wide variety of markets, as well as 60 solutions’ providers, the Inkjet Summit gave Screen Americas the opportunity to present its new Truepress Jet520NX high-speed roll-fed inkjet press that features higher resolution 5-inch printhead modules, and a unique design that parks the CMY heads during monochrome printing.

At the summit, Screen also highlighted its flagship Truepress Jet520HD High Definition Inkjet Press, and its SC wide-gamut Inks for direct inkjet printing on offset-coated paper. The Truepress Jet520HD is the first press to use the new inks that feature breakthrough absorption technology – eliminating any pre-processing or additional primer coatings that are typically required to print to standard offset-coated papers. Printing directly to the paper saves time and costs while preserving the paper surface texture to open up a range of new possibilities and new markets for inkjet printing. The 2018 Inkjet Summit 2018 will take place April 9-11, 2018 once again at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
