SCREEN Americas 80th Anniversary, Truepress JET 520HD Series

In 2024, SCREEN celebrates 80 years of service to the graphic arts industry.

For four score, there have been many, many changes in the areas of prepress, printing and beyond. As the industry continues to evolve, SCREEN’s portfolio expands to accommodate printers’ changing needs with every passing decade—needs such as addressing labor challenges, paper shortages and rising postal costs.

Whether you’re a direct mail printer looking to protect sensitive data, a label manufacturer trying to achieve opacity on multiple substrates, a flexible packaging printer striving to meet strict food safety regulations, or a publishing printer aiming for a book-of-one solution, SCREEN Americas is prepared to provide a solution for you to help you increase capacity and trump your competition.

Our inkjet technology and innovative ideas have allowed our customers to tackle their various challenges with easy-to-use technology and state-of-the-art engineering. Many of SCREEN’s customers have increased their production capacity to the point where they’ve invested in additional presses from SCREEN. Some establishments are SCREEN-only shops.

In 2024, SCREEN will build on its eighty years of experience and service to the industry with continued research and development and new technology. Presidential election years tend to be favorable for the printing industry, especially for those in direct mail marketing. And, as medical studies continue to link excessive screen time with maladies such as dry eye, more and more people will be inclined to forego a digital device for the wondrous world of print.


SCREEN adopted a new look for its digital inkjet technology.

Truepress Jet, Truepress LABEL, Truepress PAC

So why the new look?

As SCREEN Americas continues to innovate and expand its portfolio of products dedicated to high-speed commercial, label and packaging production, it has designed captivating logos for each product line that are identifiable on a global scale.

Welcome to another edition of Inkjet IQ, a newsletter created for our customers to keep them up to date on new solutions, installations, promotions, partnerships and more. It’s been a rewarding year for SCREEN Americas as we continue to install equipment across the country from our portfolio of presses dedicated to high-speed inkjet solutions and label and packaging applications.

Many of these installations and events are highlighted in this issue.

You’ll also read about several new products in Inkjet IQ, including one for a cut-sheet device designed to complement your continuous roll-fed production and a flexible packaging press that was engineered for the paper-based pouch packaging market.

We look forward to sharing our solutions with you in 2024!

Revolutionary In-Line Digital Primer Now Available for Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI Series

SCREEN introduced the prototype development of an in-line digital inkjet primer for the Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI. The ground-breaking primer addresses one of the biggest challenges in UV digital inkjet printing—poor ink adhesion on certain substrates.

Typically, poor ink adhesion was routinely resolved through offline pre-priming of the substrate before printing labels. With this new cutting-edge development, SCREEN now eliminates this extra step by incorporating an in-line digital primer directly inside the press.
