About Scodix Metallic™

By applying the Scodix SENSE™ clear polymer over the selected CMYK colors, the print colors transform into a completely amazing experience. With one single pass of Scodix SENSE™, a printed sheet can have gold, silver, bronze, embossing, textures, high and low levels of clear polymer effects and more. This high-quality, eye-catching gloss process provides true visual impact unmatched in any other digital process. In addition, the Scodix SENSE protects the printed image and the metallic impact from scratching and scuffing, a clear advantage over traditional foil stamping. The Scodix Metallic print process is a patent pending process.

Scodix Metallic delivers real market differentiation to our customers. This innovation builds upon the company’s image-to-image registration technology. Scodix uses two CCD cameras and a proprietary image algorithm to manipulate every image into perfect registration. We call this innovation Scodix RSP™ Technology. This patent-pending technology rotates any miscut image, scales any humidity-changed sheet and positions any misfit image into registration. First sheet, every sheet.” says Scodix CEO Kobi Bar. “Scodix does all this automatically, delivering multiple metallic colors in a single pass. Scodix RSP is the only solution in the market that can ensure perfect registration, image to image, not just sheet to sheet.”
