3 Digital embossing

Digital embossing

Digital embossing is a new digital printing technology [1] designed to revolutionize the enhancement process in the printing industry. Digital embossing eliminates the need for printing plates, molds, chemicals and solvents, emitting no pollutants or waste and reduces overall energy use. The high resolution inkjet technology enables selective coating with variable thickness and stamp-less embossing.Digital embossing allows for on-demand printing of as few as one item to thousands of copies.

Digital embossing was invented by Scodix,[2] an Israel-based startup company that produces equipment for print enhancement applications in the commercial and packaging industries.[3] Digital embossing enhancement technology was first unveiled at IPEX 2010 on the Scodix1200™ UV DigitalEmbossing™ press.[4]
