PROSPER Plus 1/1W/2/2W Imprinting Systems

Make your offset, flexo or gravure press digital.

New KODAK PROSPER Plus Imprinting Systems enable offset, flexo and gravure printers to integrate the power of digital print within existing pressroom and finishing operations. Available in both narrow and wide configurations, versatile PROSPER Plus Systems are ideal for imprinting monochrome or four-color content on a wide range of substrates and applications.

PRINT STATION FUNCTION

A print station houses the electronics and software that manage the pumps, valves, and filters that control the flow of ink, replenisher,
and cleaning fluids for the continuous inkjet printheads. It also controls various physical properties of fluids—including temperature,
pressure, and ink concentration.

PRINT STATION PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS

Height: 102.5 cm (40.4 in)
Width: 58.5 cm (23 in)
Power: 200-240 VAC 50/60 Hz 10 amps (S30 = 30 amps)

PRINTHEAD INTERFACE CONTROLLER FUNCTION

Each print station supports one or two Printhead Interface Controllers (PICs). A PIC box contains the electronics, software,
and fluid connections for driving a single inkjet printhead

ENVIRONMENTAL OPERATING RANGES

For environments with 10% relative humidity non-condensing, temperature range is 16°C - 40°C (60.8°F - 104°F)
For environments with 60% relative humidity non-condensing, temperature range is 16°C - 40°C (60.8°F - 104°F)
For environments with 90% relative humidity non-condensing, temperature range is 16°C - 30°C (60.8°F - 86°F)

DRYING

Recommended drying setup: ADPHOS NIR inkjet drying systems or other equivalent for most applications.
UTECO drying systems or other equivalent for flexographic film-based applications.

* PROSPER Plus 1W and 2W models utilize a dual bucket mounting apparatus to mechanically stitch two printheads for a width of 210 mm (8.26 in). The Kodak Dual Stitch Mount Customer Expectation Document outlines factors that affect stitch quality.
