Digital Production Colour Presses, from Kodak NEXPRESS with Opaque White Dry Ink - Latest generation of ZX Digital Production Colour Platform presses can help litho printers drive more jobs per shift and more profit per page, by consistently and reliably producing image quality print, day in, day out.
Achieve greater creativity with modular design of the NexPress ZX.
The Kodak ZX Platform allows commercial printers to easily expand as their businesses expand. High-capacity paper input and output permit longer uninterrupted printing. Add a roll feeder, long sheet pile feeder or delivery module for even greater paper capacity, and in-line finishing modules to complete jobs in fewer steps. Award-winning technology lets you print four or five colours at full-rated speed.
With the optional business-building Kodak NexPress Fifth Imaging Unit Solutions, you can print gold, opaque white, dimensional raised print, accurate spot colours, clear, security features with red fluorescing dry ink or MICR, watermarking or a protective coating, and create high-impact glossing that will capture your customers’ attention and higher margin application streams for you.
A new long-sheet option expands both application flexibility and efficiency. With a 39.37” (1 meter) sheet length—the longest sheet currently available among leaders in the digital colour cut-sheet market - traditional printers are now able to print 6-page and 8-page brochures or 3-up letters, as well as deliver more impositions per page, maximising output and reducing waste.
- An Ink Estimating Tool , which estimates the CMYK and all specialty inks used in a print job
- Spot Color Recipes , which allows PSPs to create unique color blends for clients and save them for future orders
- A new Production Dashboard allows users to monitor the activity, consumables and performance of their NEXPRESS on a handheld device
- Automated Data Export , providing periodic data on press production details for integration with external MIS systems
- NexPert Operator Support , a fully featured operator support and diagnostic system based on HTML5, allowing for fast and responsive operator access with no Java-related security or performance restrictions
- Variable Speed Control allows for the printing speed to be set in the job ticket, optimizing quality and press performance
Opaque White Dry Ink, complements the already available 9 specialty inks, delivers superior opacity in a single pass compared to multiple passes on other devices, delivering increased productivity and higher quality short run production for applications such as packaging, signage, labels and invitations. It has more than 20% higher opacity in a single pass compared to multiple passes on competitive presses.
There's also the Substrate Expansion Kit, to support heavy paperboard stocks of up to 610 microns and heavy weight synthetic stocks of up to 14 mils, available during 2017.
Plus support for sheet lengths of up to 48" / 1219 mm, again available in available 2017.
