Heidelberg’s Prinect workflow solutions are winning accolades from leading print media industry organizations. Recently, MetaDimension RIP and Signa Station were recognized by the Printing Industries of America/Graphic Arts Technical Foundation (PIA/GATF) and the International Prepress Association (IPA). Both products were certified JDF-compliant and IPA recognized the MetaDimension RIP for delivering a highly accurate proof to press sheet match, passing all 15 criteria in its Color Assurance Evaluation.
Also at Graph Expo, Heidelberg will showcase several of its CtP platesetters, including the Prosetter P 74, Suprasetter S 105 SCL and the entry level Suprasetter A 52 ATL, which was first introduced at last year’s Graph Expo show. The Prosetter and Suprasetter families offer the widest choice of options for punching, speed and automation. Heidelberg’s modular range of platesetters offers various configuration options and levels of automation to satisfy the demands of small, medium, and large formats.
To offer customers the broadest set of options for their CtP needs, Heidelberg is expanding its line of thermal plate offerings. Heidelberg offers both Violet and Thermal CTP plate technologies ensuring customers have the right plate to meet their needs. The new Saphira Thermoplate PN and Saphira Thermoplate PA are the latest two plate solutions added to the existing Saphira Chemfree and Saphira Thermoplate NA plates for the Suprasetter product line.
Also at the show, Heidelberg is demonstrating a new contract proofing paper on the HP Z2100 and Epson 7880 printers, called Saphira Proofing Paper Premium Semi Matte EZ. Extremely large color gamut and instant drying are just two of the contributing features for this next generation nano porous technology providing world class color accuracy in contract proofing. When used with Heidelberg’s color management software, an average delta E value of less than one can be achieved.
