PROSPER ULTRA 520 Press

Think you know inkjet? Think again.

HIGH SPEED PROVIDES UNMATCHED PRODUCTIVITY

500 feet per minute print speed in highest quality mode provides 2,148 pages per minute, 2x to 3x faster than the competition. Reduce labor costs and improve customer satisfaction without compromising quality.

HIGH QUALITY THAT RIVALS OFFSET

Print quality that rivals 200 LPI offset with drop placement accuracy that exceeds other inkjet technologies. Patented KODAK Intelligent Print System constantly monitors and optimizes stitching, color-to-color and front-to-back registration.


HIGH RUN LENGTH = HIGHER PROFITS

Achieve higher run-length cross-over with offset thanks to Kodak’s industry-leading low-cost ink. Drive more profit by growing higher value digital jobs.

 

EXCEPTIONAL EFFICIENCY

Next generation KODAK 900 Print Manager digital front end with state-of-the art ADOBE APPE 5 RIP and recallable job settings shortens time-intensive prepress operations. An optimized interface with KODAK PRINERGY Workflow maximizes production efficiency and data security.

HUMAN-FRIENDLY INKS

Kodak’s eco-friendly, water-based nanoparticulate pigment CMYK inks contain minimal Volatile Organic Compounds and do not require a hazardous waste removal process. They’re also toy safe for children’s books and food safe for indirect contact in packaging applications.

WIDE-RANGING PAPER CHOICES

Print on inkjet-compatible substrates at full press speeds. These include industry standard uncoated, coated, and even glossy papers from 45-250 gsm on roll widths from 8 to 21 inches (203–533 mm). Standard offset papers can be run with an optional inline pre-coater from one of the numerous vendors now offering them.

SPACE SAVING

Compact and robust press design requires less space than some rival systems. KODAK ULTRASTREAM Technology imaging stations need only 5 print heads per color to print the 520 mm (20.5 in.) width.
