Kodak NexPress SX2700 installed October 2011

Kodak NexPress 2700SX
In the new millennium, ink and metal plates are no longer the only way to go. We’ve observed this trend over the last several years, waiting for the best-suited equipment to become available. The result: behold the Kodak NexPress SX2700. This 14”x20” 5-colour digital press allows nexGen to produce superb quality shorter run imaging at a far lower cost than is possible with offset printing. The machine features a 5th colour imaging station which allows implementation of several unique options. These include RGB inks for improved colour gamut, clear ink for varnish effects, light black ink for greater range of grayscale reproduction, and dimensional clear ink for printing of “raised” clear textures – the digital version of clear foil, thermography and embossing all rolled into one – inline, and at a fraction of the cost. In combination with the NexGlosser accessory, the press produces UV-like gloss coating in an environmentally friendly and cost effective manner.

Komori LSX629c becomes nexGen flagship offset press

Komori LSX629c
2004, Komori printing presses have become a household name in Edmonton, because nexGen recognized that excellence in press manufacturing isn’t necessarily restricted to Germany. This trend continues with the installation of a brand new Komori LSX629c 6-colour press in November 2011. Compared to our previous Komori Lithrone 628c, this unique mid-size press can run six letter-sizse pages on one 24”x29.5” sheet, at a rate of 16,000 per hour. That’s a lot of pages! And it does so with up to 6 colours and inline coating in one pass, so that almost every job is completely finished without further handling. Fully automated makeready and washup procedures reduce waste and carbon footprint. Ink coverage preset using prepress data combined with electronic press control functions mean the operators can concentrate on what’s being printed, not how.
