AccuLink Is First U.S. Printer to Deploy a Scodix1200 Digital ‘Selective Coating’ Press
GREENSBORO, NC—Jan. 11, 2012—A Scodix1200 digital “selective coating” press is now being deployed—for the first time in the United States—by AccuLink, a leading print service provider based in Greenville, NC.
The Scodix1200 produces Scodix SENSE, a new digital capability that adds a high-quality look and tangible dimension to digital printing, bringing true differentiation to the print service provider, clients and products. The device registers clear polymer with pinpoint accuracy to images using a patented optical guidance system. Delivering variable levels of thickness and texture on single- or dual-sided printing, the Scodix1200 has the capacity to produce up to 99 Gloss Units (GU), polymer height up to 70 microns, and density capabilities from 1-100 percent.
Financing for the digital press was made available by Hewlett-Packard Financial Services Company (HPFS), the leasing and lifecycle asset management subsidiary of HP. Scodix is an HP Gold Partner, enabling its customers to benefit from HPFS financing offers that help conserve capital for new technology investments that expand services.
“We are pleased that Scodix was able to partner with HPFS to help AccuLink acquire a Scodix1200 and expand its business value through new technology,” said Scodix VP Global Sales and Business Development Dror Danai. “HPFS financing opens the door to a Scodix1200 for print service providers, enabling them to offer higher margin products and services.”
