At China Print, Scodix will show PSP’s the ability to enhance their prints with metallic coloring by simply utilizing the CMYK color process of Scodix SENSE. Done in a digital one-pass print process, Scodix revolutionizes the printing industry and adds significant value to the growing basket of in-house print solutions. PSPs are able to provide their customers metallic colors without the need for traditional foil stamping resources. Today the company announced they will debut Scodix Metallic at CHINA PRINT 2013 (May 14-18) in booth #E1-002.
"The Scodix Metallic feature opens additional new and exciting opportunities for Scodix customers", says Ziki Kuly, Scodix VP Marketing. "They can now offer the entire metallic color range option as part of a simple, cost-effective, in-house print process. Scodix Metallic can only be created by using the Scodix S digital enhancement presses with the Scodix RSP Technology (Rotate, Scale and Position).”
The Scodix Metallic print process is a patent pending process. By applying the Scodix SENSE clear polymer over the selected CMYK colors, the print colors transform into a completely amazing experience. With one single pass of Scodix SENSE, a printed sheet can have gold, silver, bronze, embossing, textures, high and low levels of clear polymer effects and more. This high-quality, eye-catching gloss process provides true visual impact unmatched in any other digital process. In addition, the Scodix SENSE protects the printed image and the metallic impact from scratching and scuffing, a clear advantage over traditional foil stamping process.
“Using two CCD cameras and Scodix IP image algorithm, allows to manipulate every image – scaling the image on X and Y axes, shifting and rotating it when required – making sure perfect quality and precise print registration, delivering perfect metallic colors" said Scodix CEO Kobi Bar. "This is what will keep the printing industry alive for years to come. By incorporating the capacity to create real shine and depth through metallic coloring – thereby adding an element of elegance and style – Scodix Metallic provides yet another way for customers to achieve brand differentiation through their printed materials. Suitable for both commercial and packaging applications, the selective pin-point digital process enables the provision of an in-house metallic finish. Scodix Metallic is expected to soon become a standard for many print service providers.”
