PROSPER 6000 Presses

Unrivaled quality. Peerless productivity. Compelling economics.

BLAZING SPEED

With speeds of up to 4,364 A4 pages per minute, PROSPER Presses easily achieve an average monthly print volume (AMPV) of up to 90 million pages – whether printing on ground wood, matte, silk or glossy paper.

IMAGE DETAIL

The PROSPER Press achieves up to 200 LPI with drop placement accuracy that exceeds other inkjet technologies. And it maintains its high-quality, accurate color over long runs, thanks to in-system monitoring.


UNRIVALED QUALITY

PROSPER 6000 produces vibrant photorealistic images day after day, which are comparable to offset quality and durable enough to withstand frequent handling. Quality that's impressive enough to please the most demanding client.

 

DRAMATICALLY REDUCED SETUP AND MAKE-READY

The significant front-end document processing capabilities of digital printing, as well as built-in press design and recallable job setting features, are also yours with PROSPER Presses. Powerful digital front ends shorten time-intensive prepress operations by reducing workflow steps and traditional on-press activities, such as job setup and make-ready time.


A CHOICE OF WEB PATHS

The flexibility of multiple paper paths (depending on ink coverage and drying needs) minimizes press downtime by reducing potential substrate issues. Combined with its variable-speed capability, this greatly reduces paper waste – both during press setup and press stops.

COMPELLING ECONOMICS

PROSPER Presses can deliver significant savings by optimizing consumption of ink and fluids compared to thermal inkjet devices. Even better, you can improve your bottom line with savings on press operations— including parts and service—that are up to 20% lower than thermal inkjet presses.

MORE SUBSTRATE OPTIONS

A broad range of commercially available inkjet-compatible substrates can be run on PROSPER Presses at full press speeds. These include industry standard uncoated, coated, and even glossy papers from 42-270 gsm (12 point) on roll widths from 8 to 25.5 inches (20.3–64.8 cm). With the optional heavy substrate feature the PROSPER 6000S simplex press can print carton board up to 405 gsm (24 point) thickness.

CLEAN OPERATION

KODAK PROSPER Press Inks contain minimal VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). They're also toy safe—making them a safe solution for children’s and juvenile books—and food safe, for indirect contact in packaging applications. No need for a hazardous waste removal process, either.
