Scodix, a world-leading provider of digital enhancement solutions for the graphic arts industry, has announced that beta testing for its breakthrough Scodix E106 Digital Enhancement Press for the folding carton market is on schedule, currently underway at CopyCenter, the largest folding carton printer in Israel. CopyCenter is keen to add digital enhancement to its workflow according to CEO Uri Drori. “The Scodix E106 Digital Enhancement Press is the perfect addition to our portfolio. The outstanding range of enhancements in a B1 format means we’ll be able to fulfill all our enhancement jobs on just one platform. Also, working with high-profile customers in the beauty category means that shelf appeal is critical to the products we produce.
Digital technology will allow us to meet the ever-increasing demand for new applications, including versioning and short runs that these products require.” The Scodix E106 made its debut at drupa 2016 and was developed specifically to deliver enhancement solutions for folding carton converters who need the 1,060 mm x 760 mm format. Unique combinations of enhancements exclusive to Scodix technology “provide clear benefits for folding carton converters to differentiate their offerings and boost profit margins,” said the OEM. “This includes a new standard in registration tolerance that will enable new and more complex enhancement designs.”
Scodix CEO Roy Porat added: “We’re delighted to be working with a premier carton maker in CopyCenter and we can also announce that a second beta will be installed this summer in Europe. Printers and converters investing in the Scodix E106 will be able to offer short-run to medium-run lengths profitably, offer new products, enter new markets, and fundamentally clinch a competitive edge in tough market conditions with value-added services that truly energize brands. At drupa 2016, we pledged that beta testing would be underway mid-2017 and we’re delivering on that promise. This phase takes us a step closer a new standard in packaging enhancement.”
