Toppan Security Printing Pte. Ltd, one of Asia’s leading security printers, is leveraging its new Kodak Versamark VL4000 Printing System to gain a competitive edge by helping its customers transition to cost-effective, personalized, full-color transactional documents. From secure billing statements to complex confidential bank notices, the Versamark VL-Series Printing Systems delivers Toppan the high quality, turnkey inkjet solution it requires for full-color page variability.
From printing highly secure documents to personalized transactional documents, Toppan finds that its customers are growing their businesses with the Versamark VL-Series Printing Systems. It offers affordable entry to full-color variable data-printing and enables Toppan to capture additional revenue. In addition, Toppan cited Kodak’s digital front-end knowledge and expertise as instrumental in helping it make the transition from black and white capabilities to full-color transactional documents.
Until now, transactional printers in this region have relied on black-and-white devices for their work, but the quality and affordability of the Versamark VL-Series Printing Systems are laying the foundation for a new business model. “We’re both honored and excited to work hand-in-hand with Toppan to bring Kodak’s world-renowned reliability and the Versamark VL-Series Printing Systems to the forefront of the transactional market in South East Asia,” said Cedric Ong, Digital Print Business Development Manager, Asia Pacific Region, Kodak. “We’re confident that this investment will help Toppan to grow its customer base and its business.”
Based on a flexible, powerful Drop-on-Demand (DOD) inkjet printing platform, Versamark VL-Series Printing Systems are equipped to handle complex variable data print applications, such as transactional documents and direct mail. They reduce costs and turnaround times by streamlining the production process through forms replacement—eliminating the two-step process of printing offset forms or master documents and then imprinting variable data offline. With Versamark VL-Series Printing Systems, users can produce a complete four-color process, personalized, two-sided document in one pass.
The Kodak Versamark VL4000 Printing System can achieve a printing speed of 410 fpm (125 mpm) at a resolution of 600x360 dpi. The systems also provide 100 percent variable data capabilities. Coupled with the EMTEX VIP Server, a high-performance output management solution, Kodak Versamark VL-Series Printing Systems provide centralized print production management, real time data stream transformation, resource management, and job accounting.
The Kodak Versamark VL-Series Printing Systems offer a variety of security solutions designed to reduce the fraudulent use and reproduction of counterfeit items. Kodak’s new Security Ink for the Kodak Versamark VL4000 Printing System enables printers to add unique security features invisible to the naked eye. Whether the true value of a printed piece is measured as financial, political or social, advanced efforts to protect, track and authenticate that item are critical as printers and their clients work to combat counterfeiting. Security Ink, available worldwide, is affordable and easy to use in applications such as ballot and coupon verification, and for any transactional documents requiring validation.
