KENNESAW, GA—July 11, 2007—Heidelberg will focus on high-tech, high-performance solutions for companies of all sizes at the 2007 Graph Expo, where the print media industry leader will showcase the latest in graphic arts technology innovation. Booth visitors can experience Heidelberg’s commercial print, packaging, small business and workflow solutions at Booth #1200 at the tradeshow, which is being held in Chicago at McCormick Place on Sept. 9-12, 2007.
“We believe that by blending our historic expertise in hardware with an equal commitment to optimizing efficiencies at all stages of the printing process, Heidelberg has become the only print technology provider capable of bringing the entire package together,” said Jim Dunn, president, Heidelberg USA. “Our new HEI Tech theme conveys the unique fusion of Heidelberg tradition and Heidelberg technological innovation, which can be seen in our prepress, press, and postpress equipment as well as in our Prinect workflow solutions. We invite printers to see first-hand what technology can do for their businesses at Heidelberg’s booth at Graph Expo.”
Among the technologies that Heidelberg will demonstrate at Graph Expo are the following:
Speedmaster XL 105-6+LX: This ultra productive press will be shown as a six-color model with coating unit and extended delivery, where it can be applied in either commercial or packaging settings due to its ability to accommodate a wide range of substrates. The XL 105 will once again prove what its users state: the fast makereadies and real production speeds of up to 18,000 iph result in significantly increased net productivity. Further make-ready time reductions at consistently high quality standards will be demonstrated by using Prinect Inpress Control.
Speedmaster SM 52-4+LX with Anicolor technology:This zoneless short inking unit brings the fastest makereadies and highest color consistency to sheetfed offset printing. The innovative anilox inking unit achieves outstanding print quality in less than 20 sheets. Together with complete Prinect Color Management, the Anicolor technology is easy to use and keeps offset competitive with run lengths as short as 250 sheets and below. Due to the unique Alcolor dampening system, presses equipped with Anicolor have no special plate requirements, ensuring easy integration into any shop’s environment.
