Kodak ups its inkjet game

Kodak has announced the latest generation of its Stream continuous inkjet technology, which it calls Ultrastream. Basically this means smaller drop size with more precise placement accuracy for higher resolution, clean lines and additional detailed definition.

It includes a modular printhead that can be implemented in varying widths ranging from 20cm up to 246cm. It’s capable of 600 x 1800dpi at speeds of up to 150 metres per minute on a wide variety of paper and plastic substrates. Kodak will demonstrate it with a 20cm head on a narrow-web press for labelling and small format printing at Drupa.

Kodak will also make a scanning head version for wide format printing with multiple heads on a moving carriage.

In addition, Kodak will also show its Prosper 6000C press running with a Megtec automatic roll splicer and inline finishing solutions for magazines and catalogs.

Kodak will show its S-series inkjet heads printing to flexible films for a hybrid packaging system.

I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
