Scodix has announced its latest finishing device, the E106, which will be formally launched at the upcoming Drupa show. Essentially Scodix has scaled up its existing technology to produce a B1 format enhancement press aimed firmly at the short run packaging sector.
This machine offers a number of enhancements in a single device, including sot varnishing, Braille, digital embossing and foiling – this last developed for Scodix by market leaders, Compact Foilers Ltd, as a continuation of their ongoing cooperation.
For the paper handling system Scodix partnered with Mabeg Systems. Consequently, the E106 can handle a wide range of substrates from paperboard to plastic and metalized boards, as well as offset and digital prints and even WB coated and a wide range of laminated products.
The machine uses Ricoh printheads. It takes 1060 x 760mm sheets and runs at 4000 sph.
Roy Porat, CEO at Scodix, commented: “Despite not being officially launched before today, we have already taken eight press orders from prospective customers – many claiming that this was the kind of unique capability they urgently needed.”
