Scodix, the Israeli digital enhancement specialist is set to launch of Scodix E106 enhancement press for the folding carton market.
“We expect the Scodix E106 to be highly disruptive in the packaging sector. Despite not being officially launched before today, we have already taken eight press orders from prospective customers – many claiming that this was the kind of unique capability they urgently needed,” said Roy Porat, Chief Executive of Scodix, who will give the press its first public showing at Drupa Hall 4 / Stall D-60.
Features include Scodix Sense, spot, braille, digital embossing, variable data finishes and Scodix Foil all in a single device. The foil system was developed by Compact Foilers. Meanwhile Scodix has partnered with Mabeg Systems to produce the Scodix E106 paper handling system.
“Print embellishments provide an opportunity for converters to add value to products, when there’s often little scope to do this elsewhere in the converting process. As average run lengths decrease, Scodix digital enhancement presses – with no tooling costs and next to no set-up – become an undeniably attractive option to replace analogue equipment,” explained Porat.
“Converters investing in the Scodix E106 will be able to offer shorter run lengths profitably, new products, enter new markets and fundamentally, clinch a competitive edge in tough market conditions with value-added services that truly empower brands.”
The E106 can handle substrates from paperboard to plastic and metalised boards, as well as offset and digital prints and water-based coatings and a wide range of laminated products.
In India, Scodix has created a huge impact in the photo album market. Monotech Systems which represents Scodix in India have more than 20 installations of the press across the country with south of India comprising the major share with 12 installations.
