Streamlined production also is aided by the Kodak Smart Review System, which can be used with a variety of graphic arts file formats and brings together a powerful set of professional proofing and collaboration tools, including an easy-to-use navigation window, densitometer and measurement tools; on-the-fly panning and zooming; image rotation; and approval. The advanced spot color capabilities of the Smart Review System, enabled through Kodak Matchprint Virtual Technology, help ensure superior color accuracy throughout all aspects of the digital label production process, making it easier for images to be proofed and displayed with accurate color on qualified monitors.
The Xeikon 3300 Press delivers seamless high-quality label printing, offering true 1,200 dpi at four bits per spot. With a top speed of 63 feet per minute and a monthly duty cycle of 2.3 million feet, the Xeikon 3300 is an extremely fast digital color label press, particularly suited for short to medium print runs and just-in-time jobs. The fifth color station of the Xeikon 3300 Press can be used for spot colors, as well as “one-hit” opaque white and special security toner. Operating on the XEIKON Form Adapted (FA) toner technology, the Xeikon 3300 combines the benefits of chemically produced toner with the performance of traditionally produced toner. In addition, the FA toner is FDA-approved for use in certain food contact applications.
