The new Heidelberg Versafire and Prinect Digital Frontend Version 2020 offer flexible application options, particularly in conjunction with offset printing
Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) continues actively to develop the digital solutions Versafire EV and EP for commercial applications by offering new hardware options for inline finishing as well as a new updated version of Prinect DFE which not only supports this but also comes with new functionalities. Thanks to this, customers will benefit from an improved integration of both print technologies and processes.
With the new feeder and postpress options, the new systems offer even more production versatility. The new Plockmatic banner feeder is designed for high-volume production of print products in the 330 x 700 millimeter format, for example for a six-page A4 flyer. There is also a new standard and booklet finisher with a double-slot delivery compartment for non-stop production. In addition, the booklet finisher can now staple and fold up to 30 sheets. The new air-assisted Interposer makes it possible to feed pre-printed sheets or unprinted separator sheets from two trays into the job. For example, the sheets can be pre-printed in offset and then - at the desired position - added to the digital prints. This makes fully flexible hybrid production of digital and offset possible and the advantages of both printing processes can be optimally exploited. In order to ensure high availability of the Versafire, the ease of maintenance has also been significantly improved.
