The NexPress 2100 and Commercial Printing Applications
Intelligent coating provides enhanced image protection, ideal for a wide range of image-rich applications, from book covers and direct mail to greeting cards and postcards. The intelligent coating solution lets users add a flood or spot coating of Kodak NexPress clear dry ink as an additional protective layer. It is also designed to increase efficiency by reducing damage to images that can be caused by finishing and bulk-mailing equipment. This solution can also produce an authenticating watermark on coupons, communicate copyrights on proofs of portrait images, and be used as a graphic element.
Intelligent color provides a richer color gamut, and is an easy and convenient way for print businesses to significantly improve the reproduction of spot colors. Users can choose Kodak NexPress red, green or blue dry ink to achieve a richer color gamut than standard offset process printing can provide, building on the wide range of colors already possible on the Kodak NexPress 2100.
Intelligent glossing provides high gloss for image-rich applications. The Kodak NexPress intelligent glossing solution enables additional printing opportunities, including book covers, digital-photo prints, coffee-table books, greeting cards and brochures. It features Kodak NexPress clear dry ink and the new Kodak NexGlosser glossing unit, which delivers enhanced image quality and a laminate-like gloss.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
