Heidelberg Introduces A New Line of Bio Consumables
Berkeley, CA-based Greenerprinter boasts a thoroughgoing commitment to the environment that extends from its choice of sustainably manufactured Heidelberg technology to its use of environmentally friendly Heidelberg prepress and pressroom consumables to ensure environmentally compliant production – without incurring any compromise in quality.
“Heidelberg’s new Saphira Bio products give us the best of both worlds,” said company president Mario Assadi. “Not only are they lower in VOCs than traditional products, but they also protect and promote the efficient performance of our Heidelberg equipment.” The company is also using Heidelberg’s eco friendly Saphira Violet Chem-free violet plates.

Heidelberg entered the consumables market in 2001 and has enjoyed double-digit growth every year since its inception. At drupa 2008, the company consolidated all of its consumable offerings under the Saphira brand name. Today, the Saphira line includes a complete line of custom-blended chemistry; a full portfolio of blankets; conventional and direct imaging plates; matte and gloss aqueous coatings; proofing papers; inks for Heidelberg’ s Anicolor-equipped Speedmaster SM 52; as well as process and Pantone inks for commercial lithography. Saphira consumables have been tested and optimized by experts or developed in close cooperation with suppliers specifically for use in Heidelberg equipment, and are guaranteed to work as promised. The value of using products optimized for Heidelberg presses can be measured in a printer’s ability to make the most efficient use of his Heidelberg equipment job after job for the life of the press – without incurring the degradation of performance linked to less compatible consumables. Heidelberg also offers its customers expert advice in choosing the right consumables for their needs. All Saphira products comply with the latest industry environmental standards, which play a key role in the development of all products and solutions marketed by Heidelberg.
Eighty percent of those who buy Saphira consumables prefer to purchase them through the convenience of Web-enabled, 24/7, one-stop shopping from the Heidelberg Online Shop. Customer representatives are available to assist with product selection, and most orders can be shipped within two days.
