Scodix has announced the launch of the Ultra2 Pro digital enhancement press with foil station. Previously, the Ultra Pro system was capable of producing nine different applications, on a large variety of substrates and with all printing processes. Now the Scodix Ultra2 builds on that foundation further boosting flexibility, quality and productivity for customers.
A pioneer of the digital enhancement market, Scodix first introduced the S system in 2012, followed by the Ultra. Today, close to 300 Scodix systems are installed worldwide. The Ultra2, the new addition to the family of digital enhancement presses, was designed as the ultimate multi material platform, enabling enhanced support for applications, substrates, and print processes. Users of the Ultra Pro will be able to upgrade to the Ultra2, starting in 2018.
The Ultra2’s design allows for broader flexibility, enhanced quality and increased productivity. The entire print engine has been changed to provide extensive flexibility, high accuracy of print and cost effectiveness, supported by fast switching between polymers, with improved print quality and superior material flow. The Ultra2 includes five ink tanks, allowing a comprehensive choice of enhancements, in one platform. A new adaptive LED process controls the curing process with improved accuracy, while the unique Scodix PAS (Pin Activate Secure) technologies deliver superior enhancement with ultra fine detail.
Roy Porat, CEO of the company, commented: ‘Our aim at Scodix is to continually support our customers to ‘enhance their competitive edge’. There is no polymer in the world that is suitable for all substrates, no drop behaves the same on all substrates or all printed material. Consequently, we have developed the Ultra2 Pro, alongside our variety of innovative polymers designed for different purposes, as a system which can deliver the ultimate results. This is essentially a multi-material platform.’
He continued, ‘Expanded substrate offerings, the unparalleled nine different enhancement effects, as well compatibility with the largest variety of CMYK processes, confirms Scodix’ position as the market leader in digital enhancement. The Ultra2 Pro represents our continued commitment to identifying areas for improvement within the graphic arts industry and proactively innovating.’
