Finsbury Green moves into digital with Kodak Nexpress SE3000

Mark Orel, executive director at the green-focused print company, said the fact the Nexpress could be easily upgraded instead of replaced swayed his decision toward Kodak.

“Essentially, the shell of the unit remains and they upgrade the software or toner etc… that’s a real sustainable practice from my perspective. A lot of the other manufacturers are producing machines to put on the tip after four years,” he said.

The 100ppm digital production colour press prints on more than 600 standard offset substrates, including coated, uncoated, FSC, plastics, magnets, linens, static clings, micro-perforated, substrates with embedded ID cards or magnets, and more.

The manufacturer said it was designed to reduce environmental impact, as prints are de-inkable using standard industry processes, and dry inks do not contain lead or phthalates above limits for children’s products established by the US Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008.

The Nexpress joins a battery of other Kodak kit at Finsbury Green, including a Kodak platesetter and its Prinergy workflow system.

The printer, which spent the past year researching the digital market, has set up its first digital department at its Adelaide office. The Nexpress will complement its existing A3 offset machinery.

The press will be installed at the facility at the end of February and is expected to be up and running by the start of March.

The Finsbury sale is one of three recent Nexpress sales through Kodak’s partnership with Konica Minolta.

Ability Press in Melbourne and mail and fulfillment house Cojo in Sydney both bought SE3000 models.

Ability Press managing director Michael Wu said: “In essence the Nexpress delivers our key principles of quality and service wbhile offering additional capabilities ensuring we cater to our client’s business objectives and exceed their expectations”.

All three SE3000 presses will be upgraded to the new Kodak NexPress SX platform when it is released into the Australian/New Zealand market in mid 2011.

The Nexpress SE3000 range was launched in Australia in May 2010.
