Scodix secures world-first with Ultra 1000’s

Digital print enhancement specialist Scodix has announced a world-first for its Ultra 1000’s Series of presses, having installed a Scodix Ultra 2000 press at the Heidelberg Italy Digital Experience Centre.

Announced earlier this year, the Scodix Ultra 1000’s Series consists of six digital enhancement presses, each targeting a specific market requirement including commercial printing, packaging printing, web-to-print and web-to-pack.

The Scodix Ultra 2000 focuses commercial print service providers, publishers, tag producers, trade finishers and other specialty printing providers. Features include automatic polymer switching designed to boost productivity.

Products that can enriched by Scodix enhancements include business and greeting cards, folders, book covers, brochures, labels, retail tags, packaging and more.

The installation of the machine at the Heidelberg facility was marked with an exclusive open house event in late October.

We are thrilled to be the first to install the newly launched Scodix Ultra 2000 press and to have had the opportunity to show off the outstanding capabilities of the press

“We are thrilled to be the first to install the newly launched Scodix Ultra 2000 press and to have had the opportunity to show off the outstanding capabilities of the press at our Discover The Unexpected Event,” Heidelberg Italia digital business manager Rinaldo Mattera says.

“Guests simply could not get enough of watching the press produce such a variety of quality applications on one press.”

Mauro Luini, South Europe and MEA sales manager for Scodix, adds: “It was wonderful to see the Scodix Ultra 2000 press in action and visitors lining up to see.

“Especially during this time of the pandemic, it was a welcome break to have a live event that was productive but also safely managed for all attendees.”

Scodix machinery is available in the UK from Friedheim International.
