Heidelberg Offers New Digital Solutions

 

HEIDELBERG, GERMANY | Heidelberger Druckmaschinen is offering customers the opportunity to run offset and digital technologies in parallel, using what is said to be a user-friendly and integrated process.

The company's digital portfolio already encompasses printing presses, consumables, software, and services for a whole range of market segments, and further expansion is on the way. As part of this growth, Heidelberg is collaborating with partners including Ricoh and Fujifilm.

Heidelberg CEO Gerold Linzbach says, “…As part of our expansion in the digital sector, we are investing in technologies such as digital inkjet printing. We are also exploring printing on three-dimensional objects and thus breaking into market segments that are entirely new to Heidelberg. Overall, we estimate that the digital sector offers us sales potential of more than €200 million per year in the medium term."

In fall this year, Heidelberg and Gallus will present a new digital printing system for the label market that incorporates Fujifilm technology. This solution is designed to meet the growing demand for a cost-effective means of producing short runs and customized labels.

In parallel with this development, Heidelberg and Fujifilm have initiated a joint project to develop a new highly productive industrialized inkjet-based digital printing system for use in package and commercial printing.

With more than 400 Linoprint C digital printing systems already sold worldwide, company says it has successfully marketed integrated digital and offset applications. The company is working closely with its Japanese partner Ricoh to broaden its offerings for this sector in the near future.
