The official commercial launch of the next generation of the OEM’s Ultra Digital Enhancement Press series, the Scodix Ultra 6000 powered by SHD (Smart High Definition), will take place at The Printing United United Expo October 19-21, 2022 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. This breakthrough technology builds upon the success of the Scodix 6000 and is directly targeted at the packaging sector and high-definition printers, “offering a new embellishment application as well as economic and sustainability benefits.” Scodix SHD is algorithm-controlled digital printing that achieves high accuracy and quality precision of complicated detailing for foiling and spot embellishments. The new press continues to enhance sheets up to B1/41-inch size and, like the Ultra 6000 press, offers economic advantages for versioning or customization, and efficient production with shorter overall time to market.
Smart High Definition gives the clarity and definition to foiling suitable for the beauty, healthcare, chocolate and spirits packaging markets. Scodix Foil technology is also enhanced by SHD with precision and accuracy to achieve fine, delicate details in designs and in micro fonts, offering customers increased flexibility and greater choice as to how they create impact for their individual brands.
“Scodix is now fully positioned and prepared for taking on all the verticals for print, including packaging,” said Eli Grinberg, CEO & Co-Founder at Scodix. “We offer a range of ten different embellishing applications compatible with a wide range of paper stocks up to B1 format. SHD owners will have the production economies, flexibility and quality to go beyond all existing processes. With a growing awareness of our impact on the planet, Scodix production offers benefits for sustainability benchmarking, and eliminates the need to make dyes which can be etched with the use of acids, resulting in wasted in litres of water – all impacting our natural resources. We take our role in this industry very seriously, so it’s essential that we offer our customers all the benefits of increased production while not forgetting about our commitment to the environment.”
The Scodix Ultra series delivers embellishments in fine detail from A3 to B1 formats. Developed for the packaging sector, the Ultra 5000 and 6000 presses work with thicker substrates and incorporate industrial pallet feeders and stackers, with the flagship Ultra 6000 offering a larger B1 format, (the largest currently available on the market) and Smart High Definition (SHD) precision. The Scodix Ultra 3000 and Ultra 4000 presses both incorporate Scodix W2P software, with the Ultra 3000 tailored towards Web2Print and the Ultra 4000 supporting Web2Pack applications.
