  • RSP™ (Rotate Scale Position) – based on 4 CCD cameras and sophisticated algorithms for optimal image to image registration
  • PAS™ (Pin Activate Secure) – unique and patented foil process using the PolySENSE 500™ polymer to enable ultra-fine details with wide variety of foils on ranges of substrates
  • Transfer capabilities – achieved in conjunction with Compact brand foilers, the market leader in foil transfer units; synergy between the companies results in flawless, robust, high-yield production with significant foil savings

  • Cost Effective – Replaces the conventional analog method, eliminating the need for dies, plates, molds and other costly materials; make-ready costs result in a breakeven point of over 9,000 sheets – incomparable cost-savings for short to medium runs
  • High Quality – Scodix unique patented technologies, the PAS™, RSP™ and transfer process deliver superior Foil enhancement print with ultra-fine details, high gloss, surface coverage and flawless registration; high-end print quality is achieved via a robust and reliable automatic process with a high production yield
  • VDP/VDE capabilities that enable personalization with foil
  • Digital – Quick, efficient, environmentally “green” and easy-to-use process provides customers with fast turnaround time to meet and exceed their needs
  • In-House – Manage and control your foil enhancement applications, profit from rapid time to market response, be independent from 3rd party suppliers and keep your print jobs confidential by not exposing them to other PSPs
