RISO Releases an Epoch-Making Digital Screen Maker "GOCCOPRO QS200"
TOKYO --(Business Wire)--
RISO KAGAKU CORPORATION (TOKYO:6413)(President& CEO: Akira Hayama) has
released the GOCCOPRO QS200, as a higher-grade model of the GOCCOPRO
series of digital screen makers. The GOCCOPRO QS200 will be launched in
countries throughout the world in the spring of 2014. (The release date
will vary depending on the region.)

The GOCCOPRO series uses a digital screen making system in which a
thermal print head perforates a specialized, heat-sensitive screen
master. The GOCCOPRO series was released in 2011 as the first digital
screen maker which uses a completely dry screen making method to
significantly reduce work processes in screen making. Unlike
conventional screen making system, the GOCCOPRO uses absolutely no
chemicals, emulsions or water. The new GOCCOPRO QS200 now makes it
possible to image an A2 wide size master that is the standard in the
wear printing industry. It accommodates frames up to 22.8''×30.7''
To use the GOCCOPRO QS200, stretch a screen onto a frame and then set it
in the machine. An imaged screen is quickly created simply by
instructing screen making directly from the PC. Because of the
pre-stretched method, alignment is very accurate when you print using
multiple screens. Furthermore, by combining a multicolor printer
(carousel) for T-shirts printing and a long printing table, the GOCCOPRO
QS200 provides an efficient silk-screen printing environment which
includes the screen making process.
The GOCCOPRO QS200 broadens the areas screen printing can be applied in.
A variety of materials including plastic glass and metal are now easily
screen-printe by the GOCCOPRO QS200. Responding to a broad range of
customer needs from printing on fabric to printing on prototypes for
industrial products and small-lot printing, Riso seeks to increase its
market share in the professional screen printing market.
The GOCCOPRO QS200 was displayed as a preview model at the 2013 SGIA
Expo held in Orlando (Florida USA), one of the biggest printing industry
tradeshows held from October 23rd to 25th. Visitors to RISO's booth
highly evaluated the GOCCOPRO QS200 because it would satisfy T-shirt
printing requirements such as wider image printing and accurate
registration in spite of its very easy operation. Furthermore, the
visitors realized that the new revolutionary quick screen making system
would get rid of all complicated screen making processes and facilities,
and consequently the new system would be more efficient in saving their
time and labor.
Starting with ISS Long Beach show, the GOCCOPRO QS200 will be exhibited
at upcoming tradeshows around the world in 2014.

Main features of the GOCCOPRO QS200
1) Enables screen making for A2 wide size
Enables screen making for
a maximum size of 16.5''×24.4'' (420mm×620mm), which is slightly wider
than standard A2 size. This large image area makes the GOCCOPRO QS200
suitable for a broad range of commercial printing jobs.
2) Realizes highly-detailed and highly-precise screen printing
an image at a resolution of 600 dpi. Through expression of fine
gradations, images are beautifully reproduced. The screen master is
pre-stretched onto the frame. This enables accurate alignment when you
print multiple screens.
3) Easy-to-use and requires no special skills
Simply connect the
GOCCOPRO QS200 to your computer and send image data to perform direct
screen making. There is no need for special skills such as applying
emulsion, exposing or washout.
4) Significantly reduces work processes and facilities
making is finished in about 3 minutes (A2 size) after sending the data.
Printing can be started quickly, making it possible to shorten the
screen master preparation time when compared to outsourced screen making
service. Perfect for printing on prototypes and small-lot jobs.
Also significantly reduces facilities and processes when compared to
conventional screen printing.
