Kodak’s world-leading newspaper printing technology exhibited to industry decision makers
EYSINS, SWITZERLAND – Kodak exhibited its advanced digital print solutions at this year’s WAN-IFRA World Publishing Expo in Amsterdam to key influencers in the publishing industry.
At this year’s show, Kodak unveiled the new CTP automation capabilities on its KODAK TRENDSETTER NEWS Platesetter, running KODAK SONORA NEWS Process Free Plates live for attendees. The company also discussed the benefits of the KODAK PROSPER 6000P Press for newspaper printing as well as the KODAK PROSPER S-Series Imprinting System and KODAK THERMALNEWS PT Digital Plates.
The exhibition saw Kodak reset industry standards, with an unmatched display combining outstanding quality and day-to-day productivity with a compelling introduction by Philip Cullimore, Managing Director EAMER, covering sustainability, hybrid printing and variable inkjet printing. There were a number of demonstrations showing the benefits of KODAK SONORA NEWS Process Free Plates and the new SCU on the KODAK TRENDSETTER NEWS Platesetter, which generated huge customer interest.
“WAN-IFRA is a vibrant event and a key date in Kodak’s calendar every year as it gives us the opportunity to engage with our customers and, indeed, make new ones,” Philip comments. “We aim to listen to the needs of our customers and endeavor to find the solution that is perfect for their business. Our technology has come a long way in the past year, with our portfolio expanding faster than ever. Kodak is the only company at the show that sells products for both the current and future offset inkjet printing markets, and does so using its own intellectual property rather than using parts or subsystems made by other companies. It is very exciting to be able to discuss our integrated solutions with current and potential customers as we cover the entire printing process, from consumables to raw imaging technology and digital press equipment.”
Kodak hosted a media event for press to share the latest news, discuss the new products and showcase samples of its offset and digital printing.
