Kodak will preview a new version of its Nexpress dry toner production press, which will be due to launch in 2017. This will feature a new multi-bit LED writing system that provides industry-unique computational halftone screening, enabling extremely consistent, high image quality with minimal artifacts.
It will use switchable colour stations that allows colours to be printed in different sequences and combinations, such as CMY plus two specialty inks. It will also have the ability to print on longer sheets of up to 122cm to accommodate additional retail and other specific applications.
Kodak says that it will be capable of delivering peak quality over longer runs with less operator effort.
There’s also a new Opaque White Dry Ink for the Nexpress’s fifth imaging unit. It’s aimed at applications such as packaging, signage, labels and invitations.
