Offset Paperback Manufacturers Adding Kodak Prosper Press
Designed to efficiently handle book printing runs up to 7,000 copies, the Prosper 1000 Press offers improved operational and supply chain efficiencies. This is important as the expectations for paperbacks, reference books, textbooks, and other products change and consumers expect the latest versions on demand.
The Prosper 1000 Press is a monochrome press delivering speeds up to 650 feet per minute, offset class image quality, and a monthly duty cycle of 120 million A4 pages per month. It supports coated, lightweight coated, uncoated and glossy substrates from 45-175 gsm.
This sale of a Prosper 1000 Press—with a planned upgrade to the Prosper 5000XL Press—closely follows the news of Consolidated Graphics’ purchase of a Kodak Prosper 5000XL Press last month.
