Kodak is laying claim to “the most versatile sheetfed digital press on the market” with the launch of Nexfinity – the next evolution of the NexPress platform.
Kodak said the $885,000 press is designed for lower running costs, higher speed and higher imaging quality. It is targeted at high-volume printers that focus on direct mail, marketing collateral, short-run publishing, short-run labels and tags, retail signage and POS.
“Nexfinity extends Kodak’s portfolio of digital printing technology,” said NexPress product manager Len Christopher. “It is designed to give digital printers greater versatility to print an even wider range of applications, with high quality, speed, and consistent imaging, whether it’s just one or millions of impressions. We will continue to sell NexPress ZX and ECO2500 presses as part of our digital sheetfed portfolio. We expect that high-volume NexPress customers will be interested in Nexfinity to expand their productivity and grow page volume.”
Kodak claims that the Nexfinity’s range of application capabilities is its broadest yet, and when launched it will be able to be integrated into a wide variety of workflow and finishing setups. It can run at speeds from 83 to 152ppm and comes with a 48in (1.2m) longsheet option as standard. Its print stations are on rails, so the colour order can be switched around.
Up to four Nexfinity machines can be run side-by-side using Kodak’s multi-press station and all of the new presses are powered by the new Nexfinity DFE, developed to handle the higher imaging requirements of the platform.
