Scodix is set to unveil the revolutionary Scodix Metallic along with their S75 press at Dscoop 8 in the United States. Enabling the easy creation of metallic colors in a selective digital process, this cutting edge technology will allow print service providers (PSP’s) to bring even more print enhancements in-house. This digital printing phenomenon will be launched in the US market by digital print enhancement leader Scodix, using its inkjet technology and proprietary Scodix PolySENSE clear polymer, in a demonstration for HP Graphic Arts press owners at the February 21-23 event in Nashville, Tennessee.
“The Scodix S75 and Scodix Metallic quality effect provides an experience that has never been seen or felt before in the printing industry”, stated Scodix CEO Kobi Bar. The Scodix Metallic look and feel can only be created by using Scodix S digital enhancement presses with the Scodix RSP Technology (Rotate, Scale and Position). By utilizing two CCD cameras and Scodix IP image algorithm, every image can be manipulated (scaling the image on X and Y axes, shifting and rotating it when required), ensuring perfect quality and precise print registration and the delivery of perfect metallic colors.
“We decided to introduce the S75 at DSCOOP, since its new sheet and image size supports the HP Indigo and Screen Trupress SX digital B2 size presses, with the ability to accept materials up to 20.8 x 29.5 inch (530x750mm),” says Dror Danai, EVP Global Business. “The Scodix Metallic is a new, simple, cost effective way to allow PSP’s the option to augment their prints with metallic coloring by utilizing the CMYK color process and enhancing it with the Scodix SENSE in a digital 1-pass print process”, he further explains.
The eco-friendly Scodix S series presses empower PSPs and their customers to enjoy the freedom to print a larger variety of enhancements in-house, supporting job runs of any size, on a wide option of materials, both digital and offset. The Scodix SENSE, Scodix Rainbow Station, Scodix Metallic, as well as the Scodix Barcode and Scodix Inkjet Braille, are enhancements that increase the value of printed items, providing the print industry with the tools needed to survive the challenges that electronic media continue to present us with.
