|Heidelberg announces Digital Performance Open House
|Heidelberg will be running a Digital Performance Open House on Wednesday 12 September to provide a first UK demonstration of the new Versafire EP and Versafire EV digital presses.
Both the EP (Performance) and EV (Value) versions will work in tandem with the Prinect Digital Front End. Heidelberg will also demonstrate the latest B2 litho press, the Speedmaster CX 75, which will allow visitors to see how Heidelberg can control colour across both technologies and also how litho and digital can be used in tandem.
“You don’t want a matt look off your litho press and a shiny look off your digital press. The digital press needs to emulate the litho profile and it can using the Prinect DFE colour management. Customers find our expertise in this area very convincing,” says Chris Matthews, Digital Equipment Business Manager at Heidelberg UK.
Presentations will be given by Mr Matthews and demonstrator Cliff Coghlan of Heidelberg UK and Ricoh UK’s Andy Campbell will also make a presentation on the potential commercial opportunities using the fifth colour on the Versafire EV.
Other suppliers who will be present for this open day include:
• Morgana offering a variety of digital finishing solutions
• Magic Touch with its heat transfer technology which is ideal for branding of personalised goods
• Vivid Laminators which can highlight toner-covered areas of print for decorative foiling effects
Opening times will be 10am to 4.30pm and there will be refreshments and a lunch provided for visitors.
