Kodak to Unveil New Technology at drupa

DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY | Kodak will introduce its next-generation inkjet technology platform, ULTRASTREAM  Inkjet Technology, at drupa 2016 (Hall 5, Stand F09), May 31–June 10.

Company says this technology demonstrates the evolution of inkjet with smaller drop size and precise placement accuracy for higher resolution, clean lines, and additional detailed definition. It reportedly will set new standards, broadening the range of printable graphic arts applications and reaching new markets for high-speed, high-resolution inkjet printing. The technology will co-exist in the market along with company’s Stream Technology to offer different platform options, addressing the needs of each application.

High-resolution Writing System includes a modular printhead that can be implemented in varying widths ranging from 8–97 in. Will also be available with company’s Digital Front End. (DFE) At drupa 2016, visitors will see the ULTRASTREAM technology in an 8-in. configuration on a narrow web press for labeling and small-format printing to showcase the high-resolution output as a result of smaller ink drop sizes, superior drop placement, and substrate interaction, says company.

Operates at speeds to 150 mpm (500 fpm) on a wide variety of paper and plastic substrates. It will also be available in a scanning head configuration to enable wide-format printing with multiple heads on a moving carriage.
