Bourg Bridge for Kodak Digital Sheet-Fed Presses New In-Line / Dual-Mode

Bourg Bridge for Kodak Digital Sheet-Fed Presses

C.P. Bourg developped a bridge to enable In-Line connectivity in between KODAK NEXPRESS ZH Digital Sheet-Fed Presses Series and C.P. Bourg print finishing solutions. 

Not all producion printers/presses require the Bourg Bridge if the print output height is 860 mm (33.85 in).

Remote finishing

Let the Bourg Box included in the bridge do the work for you: instructions for incoming jobs are converted in the pre-press software into an electronic JDF/JMF job ticket. When the Print Manager submits the job to the Kodak press, it sends the corresponding JDF/JMF job ticket to the Bourg Box. The Bourg Box then translates those instructions for the connected Bourg BM-e and other print finishing equipment (BSF and/or BPM).

Compatible with your Kodak press & Bourg booklet making solutions

Specifically designed to adapt the height of the input module to the height of your KODAK NEXPRESS ZH Digital Sheet-Fed Press, this bridge is compatible with the Bourg Sheet Feeder (BSF), the Bourg Booklet Maker (BM-e) and the Bourg Preparation Module (BPM).

Adjusted paper speed

This Bourg bridge matches the paper speed between your KODAK NEXPRESS ZH press and C.P. Bourg print finishing modules without slowing down the printing and finishing performances.

Compact solution

This Bourg bridge has a small footprint and is easy to install.
