Heidelberg premiers first Scodix Ultra 1000s Series Press

Scodix recently announced the world’s first installation from its Ultra 1000’s series of digital enhancement presses at the Heidelberg Italy digital experience center. The inauguration of the Scodix Ultra 2000 press was celebrated with an exclusive Heidelberg Italy VIP 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 at our Discover The Unexpected event. Guests simply could not get enough of watching the press produce such a variety of quality applications on one press,” states Rinaldo Mattera, Heidelberg Italia Digital Business manager.

The Scodix Ultra 2000 digital enhancement press fuses new levels of flexibility, quality, and productivity, generating unprecedented value for commercial PSPs, publishers, tag producers, trade finishers, and other specialty printing providers. Offering all Scodix enhancement applications on one platform and including automatic polymer switching for superior productivity, the Ultra 2000 press provides the largest array of enhancement capabilities in the print industry today. Producing unmatched quality – on time and on budget – in a single platform replaces the need for a multitude of separate systems on the production floor.

Mauro Luini, Scodix South Europe & MEA sales manager, states, “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.”

The Scodix Ultra 1000’s series consists of six digital enhancement presses, each targeting a specific market requirement, including commercial printing, packaging printing, web2print, and web2pack.

The series also gives users the freedom to enhance the largest variety of substrates, with over 100 qualified substrates including offset papers, digital papers, laminated/non-laminated, coated/uncoated, plastics, PVC, and carton, with no need for additional, complex set-up. Enhancing material weights from 135-675 gsm / 6-30 points and material thickness up to 0.7 millimeter / 700 microns, each press is also compatible with various CMYK print processes including offset, HP Indigo Electroink, inkjet, and toner, up to B1 format.

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

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
