Largest 9150i Press Sale to Date
Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has sold 18
Digimaster 9150i print systems to Alaniz, LLC of Mt. Pleasant,
Iowa, marking Heidelberg's largest sale to date of its
black-and-white digital press.
Alaniz purchased the print systems based on the performance
of the six Digimaster 9150i presses it has been using since earlier
this year. The sale will bring to 24 the number of Digimaster 9150i
presses at Alaniz.
Alaniz creates a broad range of direct mail pieces
distributed by non-profit organizations, from personalized address
labels and cards to personalized letters and notepads. It employs
the Digimaster 9150i systems to create complex variable data jobs.
"Buying 18 presses is a large investment for our business,"
said Randy Seberg, president, Alaniz, LLC. "We have no doubt that
the Heidelberg Digimaster 9150i printer is the best choice to meet
our challenging workflow requirements for producing digital print
The Digimaster 9150i print system, which runs at speeds up to
150 images per minute, has continuous run capability. This allows
printers to reload one paper supply while running work from
another. The advanced systems, such as the vacuum corrugated feed,
enable the heaviest of papers to feed reliably and the most
flexible document configurations to be produced. The Digimaster
9150i system also enables seamless configuration with other
machines, a direct paper path and a small footprint - all crucial
elements Alaniz was looking for.
"We had been using another print manufacturer's digital
black-and-white machines, but quite simply, Heidelberg's Digimaster
9150i system can print like no other device on the market," Seberg
said. "It feeds and handles gloss stocks better and produces up to
35 percent more output on those stocks. It also gets twice as much
overall output as the competition for every square foot, given the
small footprint of the modular configuration."
"Heidelberg realizes we are in an era where productivity and
profitability requirements involve a different solution for each
customer," said Wolfgang Pfizenmaier, president of Heidelberg's
Digital Print Solution Center. "For Alaniz, we were able to develop
a customized solution that will continue to help the company
operate more efficiently and produce greater print volumes."
The 18 machine order of Alaniz for the Digimaster 9150i
system is marking Heidelberg's largest sale to date of its
black-and-white digital presses.
