A new Scodix S Series digital press is said to be bringing "significant benefits" to US folding carton manufacturer Curtis Packaging. The press allows the company, based in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, "to create eye-catching projects with new memorable effects, and provides a new marketing tool that is opening doors for sales people".

Curtis produces high-end folding cartons for major players in the cosmetics industry – Estée Lauder, Coty, and Elizabeth Arden, for example — and for products such as Titleist golf balls and Jack Daniel’s.

"People come back to us for our creativity and our ability to execute extremely difficult packaging," says chief operating officer John Giusto. "We do the kind of work that many other people are afraid to do or aren’t capable of doing. Scodix fits right in with what Curtis is all about — it’s a press that is unique and allows us to be creative. There’s no limit to what you can do with the press: the only limit is your imagination."

The S Series press, with its advanced Scodix RSP Technology (Rotate, Scale, Position), based on two CCD cameras and "highly sophisticated mathematical algorithms", features 99 gloss units, up to 250 microns in polymer height, variable density capabilities from 1-100%, and unlimited colours with the Scodix Rainbow Station and the Digital-Glittering process. The machine handles sheets to 20 x 29 inch (B2+ size sheet format).
