Kodak has launched a NexPress Substrate Expansion Kit to increase the types of paperboard and synthetic substrates that can be run on the digital press. The Expansion Kit allows the NexPress to handle paperboard substrates with weightings graded up to 24 points (610 microns). For synthetic substrates, the Expansion Kit will give printers the option to print on materials with weightings up to 14 mil.

Kodak explains the ability to work with thicker substrates opens up new opportunities for printers with short-run packaging applications including labels, tags and small folding cartons, as well as differentiated commercial and publishing products like point-of-sale displays, retail signage, business cards and hospitality pieces such as menus and door hangers.

The upgrade takes approximately two days, according to Kodak, and is supported by a full day of onsite training by a Kodak technician that includes best practices associated with running a broader range of substrates. Once installed, Kodak explains the Substrate Expansion Kit allows press operators to quickly make configuration changes to run the full range of substrates without having to have a service technician visit the printing site.

Kodak’s investment in the NexPress platform over the past year also included the release of the NexPress ZX3300/ZX3900 series, as well as the recent release of the NexPress Opaque White Dry Ink, complementing the company’s other nine specialty inks.
