Kodak will showcase its Prosper Ultra 520 inkjet press for the first time in Europe at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2023 in late February/early March 2023 in Lucerne, Switzerland.

The company plans to present a roll-to-roll configuration in which the press is integrated with a Hunkeler UW8 unwinder and RW8 rewinder along with the Hunkeler WI8 web inspection system via its open architecture interface. The press will print live three versions of a ‘magalog’ (blend of magazine and catalogue) with different editorial and marketing content. The application includes large, high-resolution images and a compelling design.

Show attendees can also expect to see an extensive collection of finished applications printed on the Prosper Ultra 520 press as well as the Prosper 7000 turbo press, a digital press with speeds of up to 410m/min. The range of samples on display will include trade publications, colour books, newspapers, catalogues, postcards and direct mail.

Jim Continenza, executive chairman and chief executive officer at Kodak, said, ‘This inkjet press eases printers’ transition from offset to digital production with its quality, productivity and application capabilities. With their high-speed architecture and use of proprietary water-based nanoparticulate pigment inks and optimiser agents, the press provides complete solutions for high-output, cost-effective printing of a broad range of applications in all segments of the print market.’

Digital Printer will be previewing Hunkeler Innovationdays in the January/February 2023 issue. If you are not registered for the magazine in print or digital versions, you may do so via the ‘Register’ tab above, or here.
