Kodak launches new Prosper 6000 presses
Dubai, June 11, 2014
Kodak has introduced its new Prosper 6000 Presses, a completely new product offering that it says delivers a high level of reliability, print speed and application flexibility.
These enhancements will empower customers in the book, commercial print and newspaper businesses as well as print service providers of data-driven print applications such as direct mail and transaction with tools for success, it said.
The Prosper 6000 Presses are powered by an advanced Intelligent Print System (IPS) that continuously monitors, evaluates and adjusts operations to ensure exceptional quality output.
With the improved IPS, the Prosper 6000 Presses can monitor and instantly correct color registration, delivering enhanced registration performance. The 6000 Press’s writing system runs on Kodak’s newly formulated nanotechnology inks, offering a greater color gamut and delivering print quality that rivals offset output on a wide range of uncoated, coated, and glossy papers.
The Prosper 6000 Presses will be made available in two models:
• Kodak Prosper 6000C Press, ideal for commercial print applications requiring high-ink laydowns.
• Kodak Prosper 6000P Press, designed specifically for publishing applications such as books and newspapers which typically use light weight paper and low to medium-ink laydowns.
Both Prosper 6000 Presses print at speeds of up to 1,000 feet, or 300 metres, per minute on matted and uncoated papers with a duty cycle of 90 million A4 top quality pages per month – up to 2.5 times faster than the Kodak Prosper 5000XLi Press. An enhanced drying capability allows heavy-weight glossy and silk stock to be printed on the Prosper 6000C Press at 650 feet, or 200 metres, per minute.
“Today’s printers need tools that enable them to quickly respond to the needs of their customers, as well as the needs of the business. From book publishing to commercial and newspaper printing, the future of the industry will revolve around digital solutions,” said Doug Edwards, president, Digital Printing & Enterprise, Eastman Kodak Company. “The Prosper 6000 Presses deliver the highest industry performance coupled with quality approaching 200 lpi, allowing customers to increase agility so they can adapt to the changing demands of the business and better respond to their customers.” - TradeArabia News Service
