Diversified Nano Solutions Corporation (DNSC) selected by Kodak to supply x-nano MICR ink for dot-on-demand inkjet printers

Diversified Nano Solutions Corporation delivers new generation MICR ink for high speed color production inkjet presses to Kodak®.

San Diego, CA – Diversified Nano Corporation ("DNSC") is pleased to announce that Eastman Kodak ("Kodak") has selected DNSC to produce and supply high performance MICR ink (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) for use with Kodak’s high speed VersaMark VL inkjet printer family - VL2000/VL2200 System: 75mpm (246fpm), VL4000/VL4200 System: 125mpm (410fpm), VL6000/VL6200 System: 150mpm (492fpm). Uniquely positioned in the industry, DNSC’s digital ink expertise and capabilities meet specialty ink performance and production criteria required by industry leaders and their customers.

DNSC’s x-nano MICR inks are designed for general purpose black (K-channel) print operation of high-resolution inkjet printers. It can be applied through the standard K-channel or with a dedicated print channel to magnetically functionalize select content on printed items. Typical applications include checks / cheques with MICR line printed in the E13B and CMC7 font, labels and tickets with barcodes, ID cards, passports and currency with magnetically distinguishable content used for tracking and verification purposes. High speed full color digital inkjet presses are frequently deployed in transpromo, transactional, security and financial applications. Now, with DNSC x-nano MICR, magnetically functional, personalized items can be printed in one pass at full-press speed, simultaneously with all other parts of a highly customized mono or full-color digital print job. The fully integrated x-nano MICR ink inkjet process can save organizations cost of operation and ownership associated with highly personalized and customized MICR and non-MICR color inkjet printing applications.

The Kodak Versamark VL-Series Printing Systems family is based on a flexible, powerful Drop on Demand (DOD) inkject printing platform, equipped to handle complex variable data print applications such as transacation documents, transpromotional documents and direct mail. The addition of DNSC’s x-nano MICR support to the Versamark VL-series allows an increase of opportunities for commercial printers and data centers to process full color and personlized MICR jobs, such as checks, tickets, labels and other documents requiring MICR, in one print-pass.

DNSC’s water based x-nano MICR ink formulations for the Kodak VersaMark VL-Series family deliver multi-year shelf life, high optical density, extreme light- and water-fastness, eco-friendly properties, low health impact (AMES negative) and, most importantly, magnetic and physical properties which meet or exceed regulatory requirements worldwide. “We are pleased with Kodak’s confidence in DNSC’s capabilities to help enable key high-speed digital MICR printing functionality for its VersaMark VL Series Inkjet Presses,” said Bruce Carnes, Director of Business Development at DNSC.

DNSC’s high performance x-nano MICR ink for Kodak presses is available through Kodak® and its authorized channel partners. Other DNSC x-nano inks for Kodak inkjet printers are available directly from DNSC and authorized resellers.
