Kodak integrates inkjet with flexo

The Uteco Group, based in Colognola ai Colli (VR), Italy is integrating two Kodak Prosper S20 units on its 8-color UTECO ONYX 810 flexo printing system. The two units will handle black plus one spot and will be mounted to a rail system so that they can be positioned to provide a narrow personalised swathe across the web width. It’s an important move for Kodak, which has said that packaging was a target market.
Leonardo Gobbi, Commercial and Marketing Director of The Uteco Group, says that this integration will lead to “extremely innovative, customized and communicative printing”. He adds: “The benefits of hybrid printing merge the flexibility and high productivity of flexographic printing with the unique capacity of digital printing to manage the variable data which customizes each individual print job and each individual packaging application.”
The s20 heads will be able to keep up the flexo press, printing at 600mpm with a resolution of 600x300dpi.
