Scodix launches E106

Enhancement press for the folding carton market

The Scodix E106 delivers premium quality effects including Scodix Sense, Scodix Spot, Scodix Braille, Scodix Digital Embossing, Scodix Variable Data finishes and Scodix Foil

Scodix has launched the E106 enhancement press for the folding carton market. Scodix E106 will be brought by Monotech Systems in India who is the official partner of Scodix with more than 22 installations of Scodix presses in the country.

The Scodix E106 will make its debut at drupa 2016 (Hall 4 Stand D-60). Offered in a B1 (1,060 x 760 mm) format and enabling ultra-fast production (up to 4,000 sph) the press makes medium to short-run lengths viable that were previously unachievable. This unique combination of features, exclusive to Scodix technology, provides clear benefits for folding carton printers and converters to differentiate their offering and boost profit margins.

“We expect the Scodix E106 to be highly disruptive in the packaging sector. We have already taken eight press orders from prospective customers – many claiming that this was the kind of unique capability they urgently needed,” states Roy Porat, CEO of Scodix.

Delivering multiple print enhancements in one versatile technology platform, the Scodix E106 press delivers premium quality effects including Scodix Sense, Scodix Spot, Scodix Braille, Scodix Digital Embossing, Scodix Variable Data finishes and Scodix Foil. The Scodix E106 foil system was developed for Scodix by market leaders, Compact Foilers, as a continuation of their ongoing cooperation.

Scodix partnered with world-leading expert in paper handling solutions, MABEG Systems, to design and produce the Scodix E106 paper handling system. Consequently, the digital enhancement press is proficient with a wide range of substrates from paperboard to plastic and metallized boards, as well as offset and digital prints and even WB coated and a wide range of laminated products.

Using the Scodix E106, folding carton converters and brand owners will be able to create impact and maximize shelf appeal for a wide range of consumer products. “The new Scodix E106 extends the capabilities of our Scodix Ultra Series and Scodix S Series, using proven technology to deliver digital enhancement capabilities in a B1 format – typically used by the folding carton market and therefore integrating seamlessly into existing production lines. Now brand owners can create stunning new products using foil over foil, adding Scodix Sense effects over foil, or personalizing with Scodix Variable Data Sense or Scodix Variable Data Foil – effects that were previously unachievable in this market. The Scodix E106 delivers the perfect mix of size, speed, and striking quality, while saving cost,” concludes Porat.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
