Israel-based Scodix, a leading provider of digital enhancement solutions for the graphic arts industry, has launched the Scodix Ultra2 Pro Digital Enhancement Press with Foil Station, calling it “the ultimate multi-material system.” Previously, the Scodix Ultra Pro system was the only digital enhancement presses worldwide capable of producing nine different applications on the largest variety of substrates utilizing all printing processes. Now, said the OEM, the Scodix Ultra2 builds on that foundation, further boosting flexibility, quality and productivity for customers. Scodix first introduced the Scodix S System in 2012, followed by the Scodix Ultra. Today, close to 300 Scodix systems are installed worldwide.
The Scodix Ultra2 “was designed as the ultimate multi-material platform, enabling enhanced support for applications, substrates and printing processes.” Users of the Scodix Ultra Pro will be able to upgrade to the Scodix Ultra2 Pro starting in 2018. The Scodix Ultra2’s design allows for broader flexibility, enhanced quality and increased productivity, said the company. 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 Scodix Ultra2 includes five ink tanks, allowing a comprehensive choice of enhancements in one platform. A new adaptive LED process controls curing with improved accuracy, while the unique Scodix PAS (Pin Activate Secure) technologies deliver superior enhancement with ultra-fine detail.
“Our aim at Scodix is to continually support our customers to enhance their competitive edge,” said Scodix CEO Roy Porat. “There’s no polymer in the world that’s suitable for all substrates, and no drop behaves the same on all substrates or all printed materials. Consequently, we’ve developed the Scodix Ultra2 Pro, alongside our variety of innovative polymers designed for different purposes, as a system that can deliver the ultimate in results. This is essentially a multi-material platform. 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 Scodix Ultra2 Pro represents our continued commitment to identifying areas for improvement within the graphic arts industry and proactively innovating.”
