This year was the first time Scodix participated at drupa, and the Scodix name was, and is, the name on everyones lips when describing high value added to print output. An estimated 30000 people visited the Scodix booth and over 250,000 samples were given to visitors from around the world – almost a sample given away per second of the show time. The company also collected over 2000 business cards of prospective customers, partners, media contacts and more.
The Scodix S74PRO and the Scodix Rainbow worked constantly throughout the expo. The Scodix Rainbow was a hit on the companys stand. The Scodix Rainbow prints glitters on selective areas, creating a sparkling, shiny experience that brings the glamour of glittering in graphic communications to digital printing. Scodix customers are able to offer the Scodix SENSE™ with and without Glittering, and create an impact that was never offered before with a digital device.
Scodix Rainbow is a dedicated station, attached to a Scodix S digital press. The Scodix Rainbow stations physical position is after the Scodix S printing engine, and before the stacker. It works in a waterfall concept, the glittering powder falls on a surface with areas covered in glue. The glittering powder then sticks to the glued area and the rest of the glittering powder is vacuumed back to the glittering container and is re-used. The glue in the Scodix case is the clear Scodix polymer.
To support Scodix customers, the Rainbow station is designed to work with standard market glittering powder available in every local area. Customers do not need to purchase the powder form Scodix. Scodix Rainbow appeals to PSPs using offset sheet-fed presses, high-end digital presses and shops using Screen printing lines that already use glittering in their workflow.
The Scodix S74 PRO supports sheet sizes of B2+ which is 520mm x 735mm and both products have an adjustable OPA system (Optical Print Alignment system, based on cameras).
