KODAK PRINERGY Platform – smart integration of digital and traditional print

The KODAK PRINERGY Platform will play an important role at Kodak’s booth as it provides a single, integrated and future-proof workflow solution that consolidates production across digital and analog printing processes. The PRINERGY Platform is compatible with virtually all third-party software and equipment and connects with the broadest range of digital presses. It can act as the central hub of a smart print factory enabling centralized management of jobs using an intuitive interface to create, submit, manage and quality control jobs. Show attendees will be able to learn more about the new PRINERGY version 11.0, which has just been announced.

Visitors to Kodak’s booth can also experience KODAK PRINERGY Business Solutions, a fully integrated MIS/ERP, e-commerce and collaboration software solution that is seamlessly compatible with any workflow solution. Powered by PRINERGY and backed by Microsoft Azure, Kodak has combined print-specific software applications into a single integrated solution.

Additionally, the Kodak team will showcase the cloud-based KODAK PRINERGY Access content management solution which combines PRINERGY’s high-performance automation and customer portal tools with the versatility of connectivity to any digital press and any on-premise workflow.

Innovating traditional offset

Kodak is also committed to driving continued innovation in offset printing. This year, the company is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its industry-leading line of KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates. SONORA Plates can reduce costs in both prepress and the pressroom and improve sustainability without compromising quality or productivity.

Industry partner Koenig & Bauer (Hall 16/A31-1 – A31-5) will be using KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates for printing a wide range of applications on its Rapida Presses during the show. At Koenig & Bauer, a KODAK MAGNUS Q800 Platesetter with T-Speed Plus (up to 84 B1 plates per hour) and a Multi-Pallet Loader will image SONORA Plates. The MAGNUS Q800, which is the industry’s fastest 8-up CtP system, will be driven by PRINERGY Workflow Software.

Komori Corporation (Hall 15/E02) and RYOBI MHI Graphic Technology (RMGT, Hall 16/E11) will also run live print demonstrations on sheetfed offset presses with SONORA Plates. In addition, Kodak will unveil further product innovations in offset solution categories at the show.
