Scodix AI 19.04.24

Digital embellishment provider Scodix has unveiled its first AI (artificial intelligence) tool - Scodix AI - ahead of drupa 2024, aiming to address growing demand for automation tools among print providers and designers. 

Hoping to help brands gain attention in a crowded marketplace, the company says its technology uses learnings from databases of Scodix-enhanced pages to automate the embellishment design process, analyzing designs before suggesting intelligent design choices.

Scodix AI can be used with the company’s Scodix Sense application for prints with glossy and embossed textures, or with the Scodix Foil application to produce personalized, foil coated products. With the algorithm process occurring in a secure cloud, the technology is compatible with any web interface, and integrates into Web-to-Print and online storefronts.

“At Scodix, we pride ourselves on pushing the boundaries of innovation. The print industry is on the threshold of an AI advantage, and by embracing the technology for embellishments, we provide our customers with more business opportunity,” states Eli Grinberg, CEO and co-founder of Scodix.

Scodix will showcase its new AI technology at stand E11 in Hall 5 at drupa 2024, which takes place in Düsseldorf, Germany, from 28th May-7th June.

At the end of last year, journalist Frances Butler reported on the recent roles and applications of AI in packaging - particularly in production and logistics – including the connection and integration of equipment at customer plants, connected product cloud software and automated warehouse processes. 

More recently, automatic machine manufacturer IMA Group announced two AI solutions aiming to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of services offered to customers. The IMA Sandbox solution is a collaborative, cloud-based platform for co-development and partnership in creating advanced algorithms, and IMA AlgoMarket allows customers to explore, evaluate, and acquire pre-configured and advanced AI algorithms specifically designed for the industrial sector.
