Screen introduces SC+ Chroma Package

Screen has launched an SC+ Chroma Package for the Truepress Jet520HD series

Screen has launched an SC+ Chroma Package for the Truepress Jet520HD series, introducing the new SC+ ink, an enhanced version of the series’ current SC ink.

The package includes professional services and upgraded hardware and software along with the new ink. The SC+ Chroma Package has been installed in the company's Inkjet Innovation Center in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. It will be available on new presses as well as part of an upgrade for existing owners of the Truepress Jet520HD series printers.

Screen announced the first version of SC ink at drupa in 2016. Designed to be printed on both standard coated and uncoated papers, the ink met printers’ needs for 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 formula and expanded color gamut, printers can reach a more significant percentage of standard color matching systems with improved fidelity. The package can match over 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 all benefits while operating Screen’s Truepress Jet520HD series presses.
