TechnologyScodix Ultra Pro with Foil Digital Enhancement Press
The Scodix Ultra Pro with Foil digital enhancement press can print eight different applications and combinations of applications on one system to produce a variety of foil, gloss, and 3D elements. The judges were struck by the uniqueness of several applications; Scodix Braille(tm) is a new way to print documents for the visually impaired, Scodix Crystals(tm) uses a high build polymer to create attention-getting 3D sparkles, and Scodix Cast&Cure(tm) produces dramatic holographiclooking 3D images.
Before the availability of Scodix Ultra Pro and other digital enhancement presses, foil applications often required outsourcing or costly and time-consuming makeready processes using molds and dies. Scodix Foil deploys a wide range of readily-available hot and cold industry standard foils to produce colors such as gold, silver, bronze, and more, which can be coupled with offset, digital, plastics, laminated/non-laminated, and coated/uncoated applications. The press automatically processes a wide range of paper formats and substrates with no additional setup.
The press uses a clear polymer that can reach a height of up to 250 microns, 100 times higher than conventional selective varnish, and has the ability to vary the density of the polymer from 1-100 percent in a single pass. These capabilities allow users to take advantage of the abovementioned applications such as Scodix Crystal(tm). The system can achieve 99 gloss units, the highest gloss available for printed materials.
Scodix Ultra Pro with Foil digital enhancement press gives printing companies exciting possibilities to create high-value print at a low per-unit cost.
