Expanding the boundaries with continuous inkjet
Vision to Reality over 50 years… Since 1967, Kodak has developed a unique variety of inkjet called Continuous Inkjet which has revolutionised the digital printing world. CIJ, with its speed and reliability was the first to bring true hybrid digital/offset printing into the mainstream. Now, 50 years later, Kodak digital presses and components, monochrome and colour, have been installed around the world in a variety of commercial, publishing, newspaper and packaging applications. Kodak CIJ is unprecedented in its speed, image quality and running cost. With a droplet generator of over 400KHz, Kodak is printing with single print arrays with Stream Inkjet Technology at speeds beyond 300 mpm and with the best production inkjet image quality, with round and uniform drops and high degree of drop placement accuracy. Due to Kodak’s nano-particulate pigment inks combined with continuous flow of ink through the nozzles, Kodak’s inks are easier to dry and can print on glossy substrates and even films and plastics with water-based inks. Now with Kodak ULTRASTREAM Inkjet Technology, customers in packaging, home décor, and industrial markets can also migrate the mainstream of their work from analogue to digital. As Kodak celebrates 50 years in the industry and the expansion of technology into the future.
