SCREEN announces the launch of the SC+ Chroma Package for the Truepress Jet520HD series. The comprehensive solution introduces the new SC+ ink, an enhanced version of the series’ current SC ink. Along with the new ink, the package includes professional services and upgraded hardware and software. The SC+ Chroma Package has been installed in the company’s Inkjet Innovation Center in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, and will be available on new presses as well as part of an upgraded solution for existing owners of the Truepress Jet520HD series printers.
SCREEN announced the first version of SC ink at the international trade fair, drupa, in 2016. Designed to be printed on both standard coated and uncoated papers, the ink met printers’ needs for a quick drying ink without requiring any pretreatment of the paper. Demand for such capabilities has grown considerably since print markets continue to face ongoing challenges from paper shortages to price increases. Both the SC and SC+ inks provide flexibility when printers need to substitute paper stock at the last minute.
The SC+ Chroma Package enables printers to tailor their products to meet each customer’s specific goals whether they entail lowering costs through ink savings or enhancing the color to make it more vibrant while achieving precise spot color replication on the press. With the SC+ ink’s unique formula and expanded color gamut, printers can reach a greater percentage of standard color matching systems with improved fidelity. The package can match in excess of 96 percent of spot colors found in the industry’s solid coated reference book at a Delta E of three or less.
Essential tools and training accompany the SC+ Chroma Package so that printers may achieve excellence while operating SCREEN’s Truepress Jet520HD series presses.
