Israel-based Scodix, a manufacturer of what the company calls digital print enhancement machinery, has expanded its focus in the North and South American markets with the establishment of a new consumables warehouse in Chicago.
“Scodix customers will be able to order and receive the Scodix PolySENSE, faster than ever before,” said Dror Danai, Scodix VP of Business. “With Chicago being a main and central airline hub, delivery will be to either continent in the western hemisphere will be expedited significantly.”
Scodix currently offers two lines: The Scodix Sense S, which provides spot gloss effects with a high tactile feel, and Scodix Rainbow, which applies spot glitter. The company also uses its spot gloss technologies to produce what it calls Scodix Inkjet-Braille, for those who are hard of seeing.
The company, which garnered a lot of attention through its demonstrations at drupa last year, will begin servicing its North and South American customers through the new operation starting on March 10.
According to Ela Bukshpan, Marcom Manager of Scodix, the new warehouse is “just the beginning of our business implementations here.”
Finishing machinery vendor Duplo has announced two new offerings in its lineup, the DF-777 Automatic Folder and the DSC-10/20 Suction Collator.
The DF-777 folds documents such as brochures, menus, letters, and invoices at up to 135 sheets per minute. Users can select from six preprogrammed folds for touch-and-go folding or customize their own for non-standard folds. Cross folding is also possible for documents that require right-angle folds. It is suited for the office and other smaller volume environments.
The DSC-10/20 Suction Collator is designed for both offset and digitally printed applications. The machine has 10 bins which handle a wide range of paper and uses Duplo's patented feed system. Up to two DSC-10/20 towers can be connected and configured with Duplo's bookletmakers and due to its modular nature, can be upgraded to increase production capacity.
Duplo was founded in Japan in 1951 before expanding into the U.S. market in 1979 and Europe in 1985. Today Duplo devices are used in 170 countries.
