Digital production color press for thicker substrates – Nexpress ZX3300
The Kodak Nexpress ZX3300 digital production color press now supports thicker paper and thicker synthetic substrates, without limiting the range of commercial jobs that can be produced. The press will be shipped with System software v16, providing a set of new tools to control image quality and maintain productivity to optimize costs and uptime, including an ink estimating tool , which estimates the CMYK and all specialty inks used in a print job; spot color recipes , which allows PSPs to create unique color blends for clients and save them for future orders; a new production dashboard which allows users to monitor the activity, consumables and performance of their Nexpress on a handheld device; automated data export , providing periodic data on press production details for integration with external MIS systems; NexPert operator support , a fully featured operator support and diagnostic system based on HTML5, allowing for fast and responsive operator access with no Java-related security or performance restrictions; and variable speed control which allows for the printing speed to be set in the job ticket, optimizing quality and press performance.
The Nexpress ZX press also includes new capabilities to expand the range of print applications, such as (1) opaque white dry ink ,which complements the already available 9 specialty inks, delivers superior opacity in a single pass compared to multiple passes on other devices, delivering increased productivity and higher quality short run production for applications such as packaging, signage, labels and invitations. It has more than 20% higher opacity in a single pass compared to multiple passes on competitive presses; (2) substrate expansion kit to support select heavy paperboard stocks of up to 24 pts / 610 microns and select heavy weight synthetic stocks of up to 14 mils; and (3) support for sheet lengths of up to 48" / 1219 mm.
