Scodix: New product lineup at drupa

Scodix, provider of digital embellishment solutions, gears up for a display at drupa as it announces that two new presses will be launched at the show, the Scodix Ultra 2500 SHD and the Scodix Ultra 6500 SHD. In addition to Scodix SHD (Smart High Definition) technology, the two new presses also see the debut of Scodix MLE (Multi-layer Enhancement) and Scodix AI, an automated embellishment creator tool.

Scodix MLE opens a whole new dimension for embellishments on uncoated paper, favored for sustainability and affordability. The key to Scodix MLE is the ability to apply multiple Scodix layers in a single pass. For uncoated paper, the first layer acts as a selective micro coating primer before Scodix Foil™ or Scodix Sense™. With the flexibility to add layering, braille and crystal effects become more economical.

Made possible with Scodix SHD technology, now integrated into the new presses, and the introduction of Scodix MLE, Scodix is adding six new applications to the current ten, making Scodix the only solution with 16 embellishment options available. These include: Scodix Uncoated, Scodix Sculpture, Scodix Matte, Scodix Security, Scodix Reflective, and by incorporating Scodix Art embellishing on transparent media with Scodix Transparent is now available on the Scodix Ultra 2500 SHD and the Scodix Ultra 6500 SHD presses.

In addition, both presses deliver new levels of automation and reduce the cost-per-page for incorporating value-added enhancement into printed products. The new product introductions signify the continued innovation Scodix brings to the world of enhancement, bridging the gap between traditional and digital technologies.

Elevating capabilities for enhancing print even further, Scodix introduces AI technology for automating embellishment additions. Drawing from databases of Scodix-enhanced pages, it suggests intelligent, proven design options, whilst also providing data on cost-per-page so print buyers can create embellished designs quickly and intelligently.

The new Scodix technologies, Scodix MLE and Scodix AI, join four existing Scodix technologies: Scodix SHD – for the finest enhancement quality experience yet, Scodix VDE (Variable Data Enhancement), Scodix PAS and Scodix RSP to bring the widest choice of Scodix embellishment applications available on a single press.

The primary distinction between the new presses lies in their formats: the Scodix Ultra 2500, Powered by SHD is available in a B2 (28-inch) size whilst the Ultra 6000 is in a B1 (41-inch format). Both presses, however, can be managed by a single operator, boosting the ease of use for print providers.

Eli Grinberg, Scodix CEO and Co-Founder, asserts, “With over 400 successful installs across the globe, we stand as the most proven enhancement technology in the market. However, we refuse to settle in that position, we are committed to elevating digital enhancement and driving the success of our customers even further. With these new products and technologies, we’re not just leading the pack – we're setting the pace for the future of embellishment. And we are delighted to showcase all this at drupa!”
