NexPress moves to modularity and upgradeability and improves productivity
Abstract:The Kodak NexPress 2100 digital production color press, available in 4/5 colors, based on electrophotographic print technology was first introduced at Drupa 2000 and has been improved since then. One of the highlights was the introduction of the Kodak NexPress fifth imaging unit solutions to extend the color gamut and image wise apply clear toner in combination with a near-line glossing unit.
Meanwhile the machine platform was redesigned regarding productivity, modularity, upgradeability and open input/output resulting in the two new products, the Kodak NexPress 2100 plus and 2500 presses. The technical solutions to achieve these optimizations will be discussed in detail. The productivity was improved by higher speed and enhanced disposition of paper on the paper transport web resulting in print efficiency close to that of continuous web printing with same process speed. The print format size and the paper capability were improved as well. The paper feeding area is modular now allowing 2 – 4 feeder with up to 11.000 sheets capacity. On the output side, there is now a new standard delivery unit that can be exchanged to one or two optional high-capacity delivery units using rotating stacker technology with proof tray. The 2100 plus is field upgradeable to the speed and other capabilities of the 2500 as well.

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.
