Scodix S74 Digital Press
The Scodix S74 provides the tangible Scodix Sense experience using advanced jetting blocks and multiple independently controlled inkjet nozzles to deliver Scodix's proprietary PolySense clear polymer in small drops.  The Scodix patent-pending Optical Print Alignment (OPA) camera system executes enhancements with pinpoint accuracy (image-to-image registration), scanning each and every sheet to ensure delivery of the Scodix PolySense clear polymer to its exact location.

The Scodix S Digital Press has the power to stir the senses with its creations and to produce an eye-catching, memorable experience. Using unique digital enhancement capabilities, it can produce 99 Gloss Units (GU) – the highest gloss available for printed materials - up to 250 microns in polymer height and variable density capabilities, ranging from 1% to 100%.

The Scodix Rainbow Station is the world’s first in-house digital inkjet glittering station producing the Scodix Digital Glittering experience. Scodix is now the only supplier to deliver this one-of-a-kind glitter solution, creating new opportunities for photo-album covers, marketing communication materials, cosmetics and premium packaging, business cards, wedding invitations and other short-run applications.

The Scodix inkjet Braille printing technology is a breakthrough in providing materials to the blind and visually impaired. In addition to recreating standard raised Braille formats, the Scodix ink-jet Braille technology can also reproduce scientific elements, shapes such as triangles and circles, and animal forms.  Unlike regular Braille, the letters and shapes created by Scodix stay raised at the same height, never flatten and are very easy to sense read.
