- Heidelberg will present its entire digital
print portfolio under the Linoprint name at drupa 2012. The brand
message is that offset and digital processes can be truly
complimentary-and consistently profitable-when both are integrated
properly and production managed fluidly between them. Backing up
this pledge is Heidelberg's unique expertise in cross-platform
color matching, a core competence that shrinks to a minimum the
difference in measured color between Heidelberg offset presses and
Heidelberg's digital print solutions.
In an expansion of its cooperation with Ricoh, Heidelberg
now will offer Ricoh's short-run, cut-sheet digital printing
systems under the Linoprint C name. Heidelberg's exhibit in Hall 1
at drupa 2012 will feature the debut of the Linoprint C 901 and
Linoprint C 751 digital printing systems equipped with the latest
version of Prinect Digital Print Manager, which enables print shops
to manage and calculate both their offset and digital print jobs
from a single workflow. This solution covers a wide range of
functions such as variable data management, postpress with digital
in-line and near-line finishing, and document-oriented production,
and gives printers the ability to route jobs quickly to the most
cost-efficient production equipment. Full integration with a shop's
Prinect workflow enables digital jobs on Linoprint C equipment to
be seamlessly planned and managed (including standardized color
management via Prinect Color Toolbox) with offset presswork-all
from the same workflow software.
Finishing Options Expand Application Range
Linoprint C devices will be controlled by Heidelberg's
Prinect software and supported by a variety of inline finishing
options including perfect binding, ring binding, folding, cutting,
and stitching. Especially well-suited to the handling of both
traditional and digitally printed materials are Heidelberg's DG
Creaser, 714XA/XLT; USA B20 Stahlfolder SPS (slit, perf, score); as
well as POLAR's forthcoming line of cutters with CompuCut 5.0
operator guidance and networking software, the Eurobind EB600/1300
adhesive binder, and versatile die cutting and folder-gluing
equipment from KAMA.
Visitors to Hall 1 also can learn about Linoprint L, an
inkjet system currently in development by Heidelberg. Linoprint is
a drop-on-demand system for the economical production of complex,
short to medium-sized label and film runs, and applications with
variable content: for example, smart labels, security printing, and
traceable labels. This system will be sold in the U.S. by CSAT, a
digital press manufacturer acquired by Heidelberg in 2011.
