Kodak launches new inkjet press - Kodak Prosper Ultra 520
The new Kodak Prosper Ultra 520 Inkjet Press powered by KODAK ULTRASTREAM Inkjet Technology closes quality gap with offset at production speeds.
Kodak announced a new inkjet press, the Kodak Prosper Ultra 520 Inkjet Press, that is targeted at the commercial print market.
The press leverages on the technology of the KODAK PROSPER 6000 Press, which uses digital technology for commercial print applications.
The KODAK PROSPER ULTRA 520 Press is able to deliver offset-like quality at a consistent production speed of 150 mpm/500 FPM on glossy papers with high ink coverage and variable print. According to Kodak, this can be accomplished at the industry’s lowest cost of operation.
The new press is the first Kodak-manufactured press using Kodak’s revolutionary ULTRASTREAM writing system, which employs high-precision placement of smaller, perfectly round, satellite-free drops to produce the highest inkjet image quality available in the marketplace today.
The PROSPER ULTRA 520 is engineered to maximize productivity by printing across a broad range of substrates using the industry’s most versatile, highest quality and cost-effective water-based inks.
As a complete system, the PROSPER ULTRA 520 is a game-changer that will help printers profitably grow their businesses across a range of applications, including direct mail, marketing collateral, catalogs, books and more.
The PROSPER ULTRA 520 Press is scheduled to be available at the end of 2020.
