The NexPress 2100 and Commercial Printing Applications
Abstract:The NexPress 2100 is made for new, higher-value digital services: on-demand and web-fulfillment printing, short runs, quick turnarounds, completely customized brochures, and production of full-color collated pages that are ready to be finished instantaneously. New application opportunities for the NexPress 2100 are made possible with Kodak NexPress fifth imaging unit solutions: Kodak NexPress intelligent color, coating, and glossing.
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 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
