Print Perspectives

Continuous Inkjet fuels continuous customer satisfaction

May 07, 2024

We're not the only ones raving about our PROSPER Inkjet Presses powered by our proprietary alternative to drop-on-demand, Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) technology.

Here's what our customers are saying.

Mercury Print Productions: PROSPER 7000 Turbo Press

Mercury Print Productions prints up to 80M pages per month, primarily serving the education sector with a diverse fleet of presses spanning offset and inkjet technology. Since purchasing their first KODAK PROSPER Press in 2011, inkjet has become widely accepted as the future of commercial print. The latest addition to their fleet is a PROSPER 7000 Turbo Press, which they chose for its efficiency and productivity. Having only just installed the new press last Fall, the Mercury team recently celebrated an exciting milestone: 4.5M pages in one day from their newest addition alone.

"The PROSPER 7000 Turbo stood out for its exceptional speed which lets us go for longer runs. Thanks to this high productivity, we can meet the growing demands of customers in terms of shorter lead times and on-demand manufacturing."

Japs-Olson Company: PROSPER 6000C Inkjet Press

Japs-Olson is a full-service direct mail producer printing and mailing more than 1B pieces per year. Their current fleet of inkjet solutions is the perfect example of how to thrive in the "and" era of print. The fleet consists of both webfed and sheetfed offset with imprinting systems and inkjet presses. Before acquiring their first KODAK PROSPER Inkjet Press in 2014, their shop was outfitted with 100+ inkjet printheads deployed on hybridized offset equipment.

"We can run the PROSPER 6000 [Press] up to 1,000 feet per minute on uncoated stock. And when you look at quality, the thing that keeps blowing our minds is that the lines on quality are getting blurred."

Digitaprint Sogemedia: PROSPER 6000C Inkjet Press

Digitaprint's parent company, Groupe Sogemedia was looking for a better way to deliver more personalized content for their readers, recognizing how the rise of digital media has changed consumer preferences for content consumption. That prompted Digitaprint's migration from offset to digital, and their first investment was a KODAK PROSPER 6000C Inkjet Press. The team attributes their decision to its high speeds and ability to operate in-line with finishing and folding equipment. Moreover, they were keen to work with a printer that develops and produces its own ink, and controlled, affordable ink costs are fundamental to the economics of the process.

"At 300 metres (1000 feet) per minute, the PROSPER Press is fast enough to keep all our production rolling ... This would have been impossible with a slower machine."

We'll be showing off the KODAK PROSPER ULTRA 520 Press in Hall 5, Booths A02-1 and A02-2 at drupa – no. 1 for printing technologies.
