Screen shows off Truepress Jet1600UV-F

Making its debut at Print 09 is the Truepress Jet1600UV-F from Screen. Aimed at those wanting to produce backlit graphics, posters, POP displays, commercial furniture and construction signage, the flatbed printer uses UV-LED curing to extend the range of media it can handle while consuming fairly low levels of energy. The UV-LED light source used by the Truepress Jet1600UV-F generates very low heat during imaging, meaning it can accommodate heat-sensitive materials such as foam and channel boards, PVC, acrylic and styrene panels without warping or distortion.
