VP2. Lucht's original, fully automatic, package printer, designed for the professional color lab, school finisher or store finisher. It can print a 5unit package in approximately 13 to 14 seconds. It employs interchangeable optic drawers, and will accommodate all professional film sizes, up to and including 70mm. Using cluster lenses, the printer will print subwallets to 11 x 14, on all formats. All operator commands are entered on the controller keyboard. Pneumatic air cylinders drive the lenses smoothly, rotating the negatives as needed. Split formats and tests are accomplished with the push of a button. [P,S]

V7. An automatic printer, designed primarily for wedding work. It enhances productivity in labs offering multiple negative formats and multiple size prints. Its lens cabinet contains seven complete sets of lenses (wallets through 11 x 14, from 35mm to 6 x 7), and square formats from medium to 120 crops. The lens decks are stored on a rotating carousel, ready for use. To change from one negative format to the next, the operator simply changes the negative cropping plate. If you print from cut negatives mounted on aperture cards, you'll want IntelliCard-2. It's the automated system that increases productivity and decreases turn around time. Intellicard-2, an optional accessory for the VP-2, V-7 and Kodak PMP printers, more than doubles machine productivity in most applications compared to manual printer operation. Labor productivity improves even more dramatically since one operator can oversee the operation of more than one printer. The IntelliCard-2 system has been designed for high-quality professional lab standards. It links with your lab's production control system to print automatically. Intellicard-2 reads the barcode on the aperture card and delivers the carded negative to the exposure gate. The computer system transfers the printing instructions for the negative automatically to the printer. The printer makes the required prints, and IntelliCard-2 sends the negative to the exit bin, stacking in it original order. [P,S]

Lucht SportsPak/Twin Drive. A fully automatic printer designed for the school finisher or store promotion finisher. This fastcycling, highproduction machine employs two complete sets of lenses, one driven from the right side of the printer and one from the left. Any two professional formats, with print sizes from subwallets to 11 x 14, may be used. All operator commands are entered through a central keyboard. Pneumatic air cylinders drive the lenses, rotating the negatives as needed. Split formats and tests are accomplished, with the push of a button. [P,S]
