In a Euro2 million investment Leaderform, Verona, one of Italy’s leading direct mail and business communication companies, has bought a second high-speed Screen Truepress Jet520ZZ inkjet web press. The company made the decision this week at drupa and the innovative duplex press will be installed in Leaderform’s Verona offices in June by local Screen Truepress distributor Atlantic Zeiser S.r.l.

The company’s investment in a second 220m/min Truepress Jet520ZZ is in response to the outstanding success of its first press installed last year and significant growth in print orders as a direct result.  Leaderform has an aggressive growth plan over the next five years. Its strategy is to steadily replace its legacy toner-based print technology with inkjet to dramatically reduce the cost of production, improve quality and increase production capacity.

“We chose a second top of the range Truepress Jet520ZZ from Screen because it gives us the ability to handle large volumes of fully-variable, full-colour print at speed with the flexibility to respond quickly to short deadlines. These days customers want same-day or 24-hour turnaround so productivity is important,” says Leaderform Chairman, Federico Cozza. “We are really impressed with the reliability and consistency of Screen’s inkjet technology. Alongside its efficiency and flexibility, an important feature of the Truepress Jet 520ZZ is that it uses stable, long-life printheads which reduce cost and maximises the return on investment.”

Kees Mulder, President, Screen Europe, says: “Leaderform is at the forefront of direct mail print in Italy and this investment in a second flagship Truepress 520 will help drive its business expansion still further.”

The Truepress Jet520ZZ is an ultra high-speed version of the Truepress Jet520, the world’s most successful continuous-feed color inkjet printer with over 400 machines in production worldwide. The Truepress Jet520ZZ boosts productivity by offering four-colour, high-quality output at a rate of 220 m/min, equivalent to 175,000 A4 pages per hour or 4 million pages per day. Controlled by the Screen EQUIOS workflow, the Truepress is capable of outputting highly complex colour pages at full engine speed through its unique implementation of variable data handling, including variable PDF. Featuring automatic print head cleaning and testing, the Truepress Jet520 offers a flexible system that can produce applications using untreated paper, offering greater opportunities for choice and remarkably competitive production costs.
