Kodak’s New PROSPER 1000 Inkjet Production Printer Prints at 1,000 Feet per Minute

Kodak PROPSER 1000 PressFebruary 25, 2015 – Eastman Kodak is rolling out what it calls the world’s fastest digital press, the Kodak PROSPER 1000 Plus Press. The press is powered by proprietary Kodak Stream Inkjet Technology and leverages the base Kodak PROSPER 1000 Press platform with new enhancements to the transport and software capabilities. Delivering speeds of up to 1,000 feet per minute (fpm), Kodak says these enhancements enable the immediacy and versatility of digital printing for black and white applications.

With speeds of up to 4,364 A4 ppm, Kodak says the PROSPER 1000 Plus Press is well-suited to meet the changing needs of print service providers (PSPs) in the book-publishing industry.

The PROSPER 1000 Plus Press leverages Kodak’s Stream Inkjet Technology to provide one-over-one perfecting with a print width of up to 24.5 inches (62.2 cm) and speeds up to 1,000 feet per minute (300 mpm). It also provides:

  • The Kodak 700 Print Manager Digital Front End designed to drive open connectivity and ease-of-use for high-speed digital inkjet presses.
  • Ink-saver mode that provides up to 30-percent reduced ink usage depending on the printing application.
  • Micro-level text enhancement, a new finishing interface, and job estimating and reporting features.

The PROSPER 1000 Plus Press is expected to ship in the fall of 2015, and is field-upgradable for current customers of the Kodak PROSPER 1000 Press, who Kodak says can easily upgrade at the time of its release.
