Currie Group is to sell and support Scodix - the world’s first digital embellishment solution - in Australia, with the first demonstrations in July and August and sales available thereafter.
Currie Group will also service Scodix customers with sales of consumables and technical support. Currie is already a major player in the digital market through its exclusive distributor agreement with HP Indigo - which like Scodix is developed and manufactured in Israel – with sales of Indigo now well over 100.
Phillip Rennell, sales and marketing director for Currie Group, says “We are very excited to be bringing the new Scodix presses to our market. It is the perfect way to add value and differentiate your brand.”
The main solution from Scodix is the S Digital Press, which can spot coat, produce raised lettering and graphics, produce braille, and has a glitter effect application. Launched two years at Ipex for 52cm sheets this year’s drupa saw Scodix become available in B2 size too.
As a stand-alone solution compatible with offset, laminated sheets and digital print feeds, the press automatically processes a wide range of substrates and formats - substrates weights from 135 to 675 gsm / 6-30 points and thickness of up to 0.7mm / 700 microns. The Scodix S Series can print variable levels of thickness and texture, with a thick clear polymer that can reach as high as 250 microns, enabling the production of Braille letters as well as graphic elements.
The Scodix S Digital Press series that creates the tangible Scodix Sense experience uses advanced jetting block and multiple independently controlled inkjet nozzles that delivers Scodix's proprietary PolySense clear polymer in small drops. The Scodix patent-pending Optical Print Alignment (OPA) camera system executes enhancements with pinpoint accuracy, scanning each and every sheet to ensure delivery of the Scodix PolySense clear polymer to its exact location.
Scodix has increased its printing capacity to include B3+ (52cm) and B2+ (74cm) size application versatility. These additional different size products, with the thicker substrates and higher ScodixSense solution of up to 250 microns, open more opportunities for digital PSP's. "Our mission is to lead print enhancements into the digital age with our commitment and passion to continuously providing our customers, and in turn their customers, with what they need most – true brand differentiation" says Kobi Bar, CEO and founder of Scodix.
