Heidelberg Focuses on Small Businesses With End-to-end Solutions, Dedicated Area
Also at Graph Expo, Heidelberg will highlight the results of a successful first year run of its Suprasetter A 52, which debuted at last year’s show. “The Suprasetter A 52 is a cost-effective means of moving into thermal printing plate production,” Daehnhardt said. “It provides a way for small commercial printers to produce quality work with cutting-edge technology.”
Heidelberg’s Prosetter 52 also will be featured for small-format work, and is a perfect entry point for small businesses owners who want to expand into violet, metal CtP platesetting.
On the postpress side, Heidelberg’s POLAR 78 X programmable cutter and Stahlfolder USA B 20 folder represent sophisticated Heidelberg functionality tailored for small business printers. The POLAR 78 X will be shown at Graph Expo in collaboration with the Printmaster QM 46 press. The USA B 20 serves as an easy introduction to folding for small print shops. Visitors can experience the folder’s right-angle folding unit and other features that equip small print shops for increased productivity.
In addition to the products featured in the Small Business solutions area, Heidelberg will promote its Printers Advantage program. Unveiled at Graph Expo 2006, Printers Advantage connects small printers with information, access to Heidelberg experts and business solutions to help them solve problems unique to small businesses. Computers will be available at the booth for those interested in signing up for the program. For more information on Printers Advantage, visit www.printersadvantage.com.
