The Jet Press 720S features new generation Samba printheads with each B2 width print bar containing 17 individually replaceable modular printheads, each with 2,048 nozzles, ensuring the press can achieve native resolutions of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. The print bar also takes advantage of the VersaDrop technology, allowing the size and shape of each ink drop to be precisely controlled and placed on the paper. This ensures high digital print quality and no on-press tweaks are necessary. The replaceable modular printheads also significantly reduce the necessity for system downtime and minimize breaks in production for press maintenance, with a traditional offset -fed paper feed mechanism providing high registration accuracy and reliable operation.
Already a popular press throughout Europe for commercial print applications, the Jet Press 720S was last year also configured to be able to take folding carton board. This new model benefits from the same industry leading quality and productivity as the commercial print version, but with a redesigned vacuum jacket and the ability to increase the vacuum pressure around the drum, allowing the press to accommodate a more diverse range of heavier carton boards commonly used in packaging applications.
