ROCHESTER, New York , June 17, 2022 (press release) –

Kodak has unveiled the revolutionary KODAK PROSPER 7000 Turbo Press at its inkjet facility in Dayton, Ohio. Kodak’s new inkjet web press uses KODAK Stream Inkjet Technology offering printing speeds of up to 410 mpm (1,345 fpm) or up to 5,523 A4/letter ppm, which is almost 35% faster than its nearest competitor. It enables commercial, publishing and newspaper printers to compete more effectively with offset and to shift more long run jobs from conventional printing processes to inkjet. Kodak is setting unprecedented standards in speed and productivity with its new full color perfecting inkjet press.

Turbo productivity in a variety of applications

PROSPER 7000 Turbo not only impresses with its incredible printing speed, but also with its vast application and substrate versatility. It supports a maximum web width of 648 mm (25.5 inches) with a variable cutoff length up to 1,372 mm (54 in.) while printing on a wide range of coated and uncoated stocks, newsprint, specialty papers as well as recycled papers.

Offering three optimized print modes, the PROSPER 7000 Turbo Press meets the specific requirements of different applications. This allows printers to optimize their production process to always print at the best combination of speed and resolution. The Quality mode, which is roughly comparable to offset printing using a 200 lpi (80 L/cm) screen, is best for direct mailings, catalogs and magazines. The Performance mode (offset equivalent 133 lpi / 52 L/cm) is ideal for textbooks, fiction books and other medium ink coverage applications, and the Turbo mode (85-100 lpi / <40 L/cm) is ideal for newspaper printing with low ink coverage.

The PROSPER 7000 Turbo Press uses eco-friendly, water-based KODAK nanoparticulate pigment CMYK inks. The inks offer a wide color gamut and, due to their proprietary ink formulations, support efficient drying even at peak press speeds. PROSPER 7000 Turbo features interstation drying using near infrared (NIR) technology. This drying solution enables the press to keep up with any of the print modes to ensure the highest quality output at the given speed.

To safeguard consistently high quality, even with the longest print runs, the new press features the KODAK Intelligent Print System. This patented solution automatically takes care of monitoring and optimization of stitching, color-to-color and front-to-back registration.

“The game-changing speed of the PROSPER 7000 Turbo will help commercial, publishing and newspaper printers increase efficiency by shifting more long-run jobs from conventional printing processes to inkjet,” said Jim Continenza, Kodak’s Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe digital technology will grow in importance as a complement to offset as ongoing supply chain issues continue to increase the cost of prepress. This new press reflects our continued commitment to investing in innovation that helps our customers succeed as the industry evolves.”
