First European Installation of Kodak Prosper 1000 Press for SAGIM in France

May 20, 2010

SAGIM decided to invest in the Prosper 1000 Press at the end of 2009. After considering all existing digital printing technologies—from xerography to inkjet, from web to sheetfed—the company finally opted for web inkjet.

“We based our decision on print quality and productivity,” explains Devambez. “We chose the Prosper 1000 Press for its high throughput and its cutting-edge technology. Kodak’s market presence and reputation also tipped the scales toward this Prosper Solution.”

SAGIM will also benefit from the fact that the print width of the Prosper 1000 Press is consistent with the company’s Variquik offset presses. This will enable SAGIM to manage the same paper stock for both its offset and digital printing workflows—a significant advantage that made the Prosper 1000 Press even more attractive. SAGIM will use the Prosper 1000 Press with an in-line HUNKELER finishing solution to automate folding and cutting. Book binding will be managed offline in the first instance. The Prosper 1000 Press is set to be installed at the end of August.

“We expect to gradually increase our production volume and reach our peak level at the end of this year,” concludes Devambez.
