TechnologyKodak’s Extended Sheet Length
The KODAK NEXPRESS Press gives printers the ability to print on sheet lengths of up to one meter (39.37") with the optional external feeder which feeds directly into the paper path. The extended size makes it compatible with offset presses of the same size. The technology enables printers to provide prototyping, test/target marketing, and small batch production to complement jobs run on offset presses. This allows for a variety of short run conventional applications to be tackled in an economic way, such as pocket folders or marketing collateral with gate folds. Also, the system is designed to make automatic adjustments on various press parameters for given substrate types, which allows for optimized registration and image quality. This reduces an operator's need to have a hands-on role in many cases. The sheetfed process makes it easier to have quick turnarounds of small run lengths and switch substrates, providing much-needed flexibility.
