Heidelberg Digimaster 9150i Network Imaging System delivers
three to five million monthly impressions
Print providers worldwide will benefit from higher
productivity and greater reliability, employing the new Digimaster
9150i Network Imaging System developed by Heidelberg. The
Digimaster 9150i print system enables 150-image-per-minute digital
black-and-white printing. It broadens the company's overall digital
printing solutions portfolio and extends the Digimaster product
family for the digital high-volume black-and-white printing market.
"Since 1999, our Digimaster 9110 print engine has provided
customers with a high-performance alternative in the digital,
high-volume black-and-white market," said Wolfgang Pfizenmaier,
president of Heidelberg's Digital Solution Center. "Now, with our
Digimaster 9150i system, we are again redefining the
black-and-white segment - offering a faster-speed product that
delivers the superior image quality customers have grown accustomed
to from our 9110 print engine."
The new print system employs state-of-the-art Heidelberg
technology to match the performance of the Digimaster 9110 machine,
while delivering additional key benefits for print providers:
- Greater productivity by enabling 150-image-per-minute speed
throughout the system - maintaining the rated speed even when
used with accessories and finishing equipment.
- High uptime - equal to or greater than the Digimaster 9110
system - at higher print volumes.
- An enhanced duty cycle of three to five-million impressions
per month, resulting from the system's standard paper storage
capacity of 8,000 sheets and maximum capacity of 12,000 sheets
(with post-process inserter).
- Improved digital workflow, with the ability to produce
greater print volumes without increasing staffs or extending
- Scalable configurations, similar to current Digimaster 9110
system options, to let customers choose the system that best
meets their needs. Options include several hardware and software
accessories, including Imagedirect 665 scanner, ImageSmart
software, roll feeders, post-process inserter, booklet maker,
perfect binder and stacker.
Like the Digimaster 9110 machine, the Digimaster 9150i system
provides a short, straight paper path for superior paper handling
and a resolution of 600x600 dpi. It also employs small-particle
developer and Gray Resolution Enhancement Technology to deliver
high-quality documents with sharper text, crisper halftones and
The Digimaster 9150i will be distributed through Heidelberg
and be available in Europe as of November 2002.
