The VERSAMARK D-series continuous inkjet solutions offer high speed, part page digital printing and can easily mount inline with web offset presses, collators, mailbases, folders, and a variety of other inline and offline equipment.

“Today’s mail communications management market demands solutions that provide quality, speed and flexibility in order to expand services and meet growing customer demands,” said Ron Gilboa, Vice President Marketing, Transactional and Industrial Solutions Group, Kodak. “Kodak’s VERSAMARK D-series solutions address our customers’ needs by combining high throughput with quality printing and a low cost of operation.”

The D-series for high volume digital printing offers a broad range of printing systems with a comprehensive selection of printing features and functions to print variable information online or offline:
