Scodix Ultra 6000 press to debut at Hunkeler

Scodix, a provider of digital enhancement solutions for the graphic arts industry, will showcase its Ultra 6000 Press powered by smart high definition (SHD) for the first time in Europe at Hunkeler Innovationdays from 27 February to 2 March 2023 in Lucerne, Switzerland.

The Scodix Ultra 6000 Press delivers good embellishment results for a range of products, including book covers, luxury packaging, and commercial print products, the company said. The focus at Hunkeler will be embellishment solutions on offset B1 and B2 sheet formats demonstrating the economics and productivity to replace analog embellishment technology, whilst offering publishers greater flexibility to enhance a wide variety of book covers from paperback books to high-end book jackets. In addition, Scodix will show its SHD technology, which, the company claims, offers a breakthrough in high-definition, fine clarity, and delicate detailing for eye-catching results.

Scodix is thrilled to be debuting the Ultra 6000 Press powered by SHD at Hunkeler Innovationdays,” says Mark Nixon, Scodix EVP, Global Sales & Marketing. “The 6000 press is already selling well, and we are keen for publishers to experience all the advantages that come with it. Scodix products deliver an incredible combination of economic, sustainable, and efficient solutions to take the printers and publishers to the next level of enhancement.”

The Scodix Ultra 6000 Press enables a fast return on investment, with refined, elegant enhancement increasing the perceived value of books and making otherwise inconceivable short runs not only possible, but economical too – replacing the need for hot or cold foiling, and a host of other enhancements, all on one platform.

Nixon adds, “In the face of increasing online purchases and the popularity of personalized books, the publishing industry continues to require smaller job runs and faster time-to-market. Clearly, digital enhancement is an excellent solution for those challenges, but with the large format of the Scodix Ultra 6000 and virtually zero makeready time, publishers can also match the productivity of their analog systems.”

As environmental impact is increasingly essential to the industry, Scodix is committed to delivering more sustainable solutions and environmentally friendly processes within its presses and digital enhancements. This includes eliminating VOC emissions and removing the need for metal-based stamps/clichés, chemicals, and solvents, while also reducing overall energy consumption. 

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.
