Press Release: Kodak Prosper 6000 Presses Unleash the Next‐Generation of Printing to Meet Diverse Customer Needs
ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 10 - Today Kodak continues to exceed industry standards in digital color print with the introduction of the KODAK PROSPER 6000 Presses. With new innovations in transport, drying and writing systems, combined with advanced press management technology, the PROSPER 6000 Presses are a completely new product offering that deliver high levels of reliability, print speed and application flexibility. These enhancements will empower customers in the book, commercial print and newspaper businesses-as well as print service providers of data‐driven print applications such as direct mail and transaction-with tools for success.
The PROSPER 6000 Presses are powered by an advanced Intelligent Print System (IPS) that continuously monitors, evaluates and adjusts operations to ensure exceptional quality output. With the improved IPS, the PROSPER 6000 Presses can monitor and instantly correct color registration, delivering enhanced registration performance. The Presses' writing system runs on Kodak's newly formulated nanotechnology inks, offering a greater color gamut and delivering print quality that rivals offset output on a wide range of uncoated, coated and glossy papers.
Two PROSPER 6000 Models for Business Agility
The PROSPER 6000 Presses will be made available in two models:
- KODAK PROSPER 6000C Press, ideal for commercial print applications requiring high ink laydowns.
- KODAK PROSPER 6000P Press, designed specifically for publishing applications such as books and newspapers which typically use light‐weight paper and low‐to‐medium ink laydowns.
Both PROSPER 6000 Presses print at speeds of up to 1,000 feet, or 300 meters, per minute on matted and uncoated papers with a duty cycle of 90 million A4 top quality pages per month -- up to 2.5 times faster than the KODAK PROSPER 5000XLi Press. An enhanced drying capability allows heavy‐weight glossy and silk stock to be printed on the PROSPER 6000C Press at 650 feet, or 200 meters, per minute.
