Scodix Cast&Cure: 3D holographic effect makes debut at Belgian Open House Event
SCODIX, ISRAEL - 03 October 2017 - Scodix, the world's leading provider of digital enhancement solutions for the graphic arts industry, announces today the commercial availability of the Scodix Cast&CureT application. Making 3D holographic effects more accessible to brands than ever before, the latest addition to Scodix' portfolio of applications provides yet another differentiator for printers looking for a competitive edge. Now available with the Scodix Ultra ProT Digital Enhancement Press with Foil Station, Scodix offers a record nine different enhancement effects, more than any digital enhancement system. Customers will be able to see the application demonstrated for the first time at an Open House event at beta customer Drukkerij VD's facility in Belgium, on 10th October 2017.
Employing a variety of standard off-the-shelf holographic patterns, as well as customized designs, this technique delivers unmatched style and security features to brochures, packaging, displays, book covers, greeting cards, and bags. Scodix Cast&Cure creates a high-impact 3D holographic effect, bringing a whole new dimension, and value proposition, to customers' print projects. Easy-to-operate with minimal setup, the effect is cost proficient for short to medium run lengths.
"This particular finish is causing a real buzz amongst brand owners and we expect it to be very popular in the greeting cards sector and in packaging. Specifically, we can see some scope in the authentication of products as counterfeiting becomes more and more of an issue for brands," states Amit Shvartz, Scodix Marketing VP. "The process works by ink jetting the clear polymer directly on to the sheet before passing through a foiling unit which leaves a micro-embossed pattern on the polymer, thus creating stunning holographic effects by refracting the light. Scodix unique PAST (Pin Activate Secure) technologies deliver superior enhancement with ultra-fine detail and flawless registration, achieving outstanding Cast&Cure quality. The results are amazing!"
Shvartz continues, "We are in the unique position at Scodix of being able to offer customers an unmatched number of digital enhancement applications. This latest addition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to innovation."
