The Nexfinity digital press from Kodak.

Kodak has rolled out its new Nexfinity digital press that it describes as the most versatile digital sheetfed platform in today’s market.

Nexfinity offers exceptional image quality and consistency over long runs, with running costs that are consistent with medium-run offset litho, according to a statement from the iconic US-based company.

Built upon the success of the award-winning KODAK NEXPRESS Platform, NEXFINITY will help printers optimize the productivity and profit potential of their entire operations. The platform’s low running costs, higher speed and dynamic imaging will change how printers evaluate what can be run on digital.

‘Delivers offset quality while driving down costs’: Chris Balls, Kodak.

 “With Nexfinity Press, printers get a robust digital printing platform that delivers offset quality while driving down costs and equipping them with the flexibility and speed to handle an expansive range of applications for their customers, whether it’s an order for a few hundred or millions of impressions,” says Chris Balls, VP Print Systems Division of Kodak.

The Nexfinity platform is built with Dynamic Imaging Technology, a patented Kodak innovation for digital printing. The technology works by applying algorithmic adjustments to specific areas of an image, which optimizes image quality and consistency based on the image content in each area.

Featuring a new high resolution and multi-bit LED writing system, the press produces the broadest range of applications, including direct mail, commercial print, publishing, and packaging. Seamless integration into workflow and finishing solutions means the press is optimized for a printer’s production workflow.

The Nexfinity delivers the industry’s highest information density at more than 1.8 billion pieces of image information per square inch and it ensures smooth flat fields and excellent image detail in the printed product. It also delivers speed and flexibility, with an increased range of 83 to 152 ppm, expanded sheet lengths up to 48 inches and capable of handling stocks up to 24pt.

All Nexfinity presses are powered by the new Kodak Nexfinity Front End, which features the flexibility to operate as a complete standalone prepress toolset, with imposing, trapping, colour management, job specification and job management and reporting capabilities.

The Front End is also equipped with an automated workflow using JDF and JMF which are compatible with a variety of workflow solutions, including Kodak’s industry-leading PRINERGY Workflow. Fast ripping of short-run, image-intensive applications, as well as complex variable jobs keeps the press highly productive.

    The NexPress is still the best toner (yes, Indigo also uses toner, just suspended) printing platform in the industry.
    Unfortunately Kodak in AUS/NZ is a basket case and they never understood how to sell this against the competition.
    The Chapter 11 of the US mother didn’t help to launch new developments earlier.

    I hope we will see some of the new machines in AUS, but I think it is a little too late.
