Kodak (Booth 1227) is debuting its Kodak Prosper 5000XL press with daily demonstrations throughout the show. The Prosper Press Platform features Kodak Stream Inkjet Technology.
Based on Kodak Stream Inkjet Technology, the Prosper 5000XL press allows users to produce offset class output in terms of quality, productivity and cost for their clients, while offering the unique ability to print permanently on glossy coated papers.
With Stream Inkjet Technology, speed and accurate drop placement are ensured using a continuous flow of ink through inkjet nozzles at a very high volume. The stream of ink is then stimulated by thermal energy to break it into individual droplets. These drops of ink are then thrust from the nozzles at a very high rate of speed to guarantee excellent drop placement accuracy and image quality. Stream Inkjet Technology uses air deflection and silicon nozzles to deliver uniform ink droplet size and accurate droplet placement with a drop generation speed over 400KHz, producing image quality approaching up to175 line screen (lpi) at speeds up to 650 feet per minutes in a process color environment.
An enclosed and secure jetting module forms the core of Stream Inkjet Technology solutions. The jetting module contains a single row of high-velocity jetting nozzles for fast printing speeds that deliver ink to paper with simplicity and reliability, all in a single pass. To further enhance productivity and maximize uptime, jetting modules can easily be changed by the operator in a matter of minutes.
Kodak is also introducing its new consulting and business tools being launched under the Kodak Marketmover umbrella, as well as an all-new member of the Kodak Nexpress Digital Production Color Platform. In addition, Kodak is presenting its Kodak Trillian SP plates and Kodak Unified workflow solutions.
