Scodix has announced the commercial launch of the Ultra 101 and the Ultra 202 digital enhancement presses.
The family of presses, including the Ultra 101 and the Ultra 202, was developed to meet the increased demand for business generating digital enhancement and allow print companies of all sizes to target new revenue opportunities.
Designed as a stepping stone into the world of digital enhancement, the Ultra 101 is fully compatible with offset and HP Indigo presses. Seamless integration ensures printers can maximise their uptime and crucially, expand their throughput. The Ultra 101 offers six enhancements including Scodix Sense, Foil, Metallic, VDE, Glitter and Cast&Cure, plus combinations of all of these, offering users a competitive business differentiator. The Ultra 101 is making its worldwide debut at the HP Indigo Global VIP customer event today (February 12). The full capabilities of the Ultra 101 will be demonstrated with HP Indigo 12000 HD digital press.
‘Delivering visually striking and tactile enhancements, Scodix adds great value to HP Indigo prints,’ stated Alon Bar-Shany, general manager, HP Indigo Division, adding, ‘The introduction of the new Ultra 101 is further testament to the company’s innovation and will increase applications and business opportunities for HP Indigo customers.’
The Ultra 202 ‘full feature’ digital enhancement press provides customers with tone of the largest array of enhancement capabilities in the industry. This press offers high quality – quickly and cost effectively – enabling printers to increase their throughput and creating business opportunities. Users have the freedom to print enhancements on paper, lamination, a variety of water based coatings, PVC and carton, opening the door to a succession of new applications.
All nine of the Scodix applications run efficiently on the Ultra 202 press, replacing the need for separate systems on the production floor and preserving a small footprint. By incorporating digital enhancement, print providers can expand their service offering with attention grabbing applications. These include premium business/greeting cards, folders, head turning book covers, audience engaging brochures, stand out labels and packaging.
Adina Shorr, CEO at Scodix, concluded: ‘By adding these new systems to our portfolio, we are increasing the number of customers that can employ Scodix and ‘turn print into an experience.
‘The Ultra 202 promises to be our flagship product, with the widest range of applications and substrate compatibility in the market, while the new Ultra 101 provides a taste of that, allowing smaller printers to add luxurious embellishments and personalisation that sells brands, whilst protecting profitability.’
