Scodix SPOT™ will be exhibited for the first time at Graph Expo 2014. Scodix SPOT™ enables commercial printers to digitally recreate the flat varnish look and feel to short-run printed projects, without the time-consuming setup or costly inventory of traditional spot varnish and silk screen printing processes.
Working within the Scodix workflow, PSPs can now apply digital spot coating with minimal setup, just one operator, and keep projects in-house, while offering designers greater creativity within variable data printing jobs.
Scodix VP of Marketing Amit Shvartz said, ‘Scodix SPOT™ is an ideal complement to the high-gloss effects of Scodix SENSE™. Compatible with the new Scodix Ultra Pro, Scodix SPOT’s automatic maintenance offers users an environmentally-friendly solution to a very costly, time-consuming and messy production task. For short-run projects, it delivers a cost-effective alternative and Scodix RSP™ technology ensures consistently perfect registration. For many Print service providers, Scodix SPOT™ will convert an outsourced expense into an in-house revenue stream.’
The first launched adaptation of Scodix SPOT™ technology will be the Scodix SPOT 80™, digital coating developed specifically for offset and laminated sheet applications. It is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2015 through Scodix distribution and sales channels.
