Screen (USA) Celebrates 40th Anniversary
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill.—Among many major milestones in the history of Screen (USA), the company passed another one in June by marking the 40th anniversary of its founding. Screen (USA) will officially observe its 40th anniversary on September 10 at the Art Institute of Chicago. The event is scheduled to coincide with Graph Expo 2007.
“Although we celebrate our successes every year and are continually looking for ways to drive our innovation forward, this is an opportunity to look back over the past four decades and celebrate how far we have come,” said Mike Fox, president. “Each year brings technological innovations that add new depth to an already impressive lineup of solutions. Screen (USA) has maintained an excellent reputation by becoming partners with clients and applying expert skills and knowledge of every product. I am especially proud of the corporate culture that all of our employees strive to perpetuate -- an environment where creativity and teamwork are encouraged.”
Screen recently has released the latest version of Trueflow 3. Screen’s flagship workflow management system, based on PDF and JDF, automates prepress operations and optimizes CTP plate production and digital press output. Its JDF compatibility with version 4 strengthens cooperation between management information systems (MIS) and print production.
Product introductions slated for this year include a new inkjet printing system that builds on the successful launch in 2006 of the Truepress Jet520 variable data inkjet printer and Truepress 344 digital offset press. The Truepress Jet2500UV will provide flexibility and speed for the fast-growing print-on-demand market. Part of Screen’s digital printing strategy, the Truepress Jet2500UV takes advantage of strong demand for high-precision, multicolor image reproduction.
Scheduled for release in 2007, the next-generation Trueflow SE workflow will implement the powerful Abode PDF Printing Engine to enhance output consistency throughout the workflow. In combination with JDF, it improves overall print productivity and profitability. Integrating this technology into Trueflow SE is further evidence of Screen’s commitment to developing software solutions aimed at providing the best total solution for customers that plan to drive future Screen hardware devices.
