Kodak today announced the Prosper Plus Imprinting Solution, the newest Kodak Stream Inkjet Technology component product line designed for packaging and product decoration applications.

Developed based on Prosper S-Series Imprinting Systems, the Prosper Plus Imprinting Solution includes four new imprinting components as well as food safe packaging inks and pre-coatings for folding cartons, food wraps, paper cups and plates, and ream wraps. The new models, Kodak says, will expand the capabilities for printers to leverage continuous inkjet as a complimentary capability to the Kodak Prosper 6000S Simplex Press and the Uteco Sapphire EVO (flexible substrates) web-fed solution.

The four hardware products will include two narrow formats and two wider format models which will either print at speeds up to 850 fpm or 2,000 fpm maximum. The narrow format design is a 4.13-inch single jetting module, suitable for imprinting barcodes, QR codes, promotional contest information or small format designs in either monochrome or four-colour output, the company says. The wider format design is 8.26-inch dual stitched products, designed for corrugated, folding carton and label packaging applications that require full page printing or dynamic layouts. These components are capable of being mounted in-line with offset, flexo, or gravure presses, from Uteco or other equipment providers, or could be implemented in finishing lines such as folding/gluing systems providing the flexibility for digital to be incorporated throughout various existing printing operations, Kodak explains.

The new Prosper Plus Components is expected to be available in April 2019.
