Esko and Scodix collaborating
19. September 2018
Esko and Scodix announce a collaboration to include Scodix packaging enhancement applications within the Esko Studio suite including, Scodix Foil™, Scodix Embossed Foil™, Scodix Sense™ for UV embossing and Scodix Spot™ for varnish applications. Scodix presses bring digital enhancements to printed materials for both commercial print and folding carton in a post-print process including multiple premium quality applications on one platform. Both the Scodix Ultra2 series and the Scodix E106 Digital Enhancement Press offer capabilities, which enhance printed materials by layering polymers digitally onto printed products. These effects add value and help packaging stand out on the shelf in a highly competitive consumer market.
Esko Studio software allows designers to present and test their ideas and designs by quickly and easily turning them into beautiful high-resolution virtual 3D prototypes, which can include product enhancements such as special inks, varnishes, foils or other finishing effects. A subset of Scodix applications is now included in the Visualizer library and eliminates the need to print and manually reproduce special finishes during the prototyping and presentation stage. Print samples can now be designed and viewed on the Esko Studio Software and then printed on a Scodix Digital Enhancement Press, using real foil, without the need for molds or dies. Quantities ranging from one to thousands can be printed in a cost-effective way, according to Esko and Scodix.
