NexPress 2100 sales launch/Debut as solution provider
At Print 01, the world's largest trade fair for the
print media industry this year, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG
(Heidelberg) focuses on digital print solutions. With the sales
launch of the NexPress 2100, the digital color press from the joint
venture with Kodak, Heidelberg is now offering its full range of
digital print products - both black & white and color -
exclusively through its own sales channel.
At the company press conference in Chicago, Bernhard
Schreier, Chairman of the Management Board of Heidelberg, stressed
the significance of this important move on what is a major growth
market. "We want to take a leading role in the digital market
segment," he explained.
The company also launched a new version of the Quickmaster DI
46-4 Pro at Print. 1,600 of these units have already been installed
worldwide. The QM DI 46-4 combines Direct Imaging technology with
digital color printing and rounds off Heidelberg's professional
short-run color portfolio.
For Heidelberg, Print 01 is a logical continuation from Drupa
2000, where it took its first successful steps as a solutions
provider. The world market leader believes it is especially
important, particularly in difficult economic times, to provide a
comprehensive advice service and to deliver tailor-made concepts
for each market segment. The Prinect series plays a key role in
this by providing solutions for technical and commercial workflows
in the production process. The Prinance management information
system is another important innovation and forms the business
management component in Prinect. Prinect is the umbrella term for
all Heidelberg's digital workflow components. These are based
on open standards such as PPF (Print Production Format) and JDF
(Job Definition Format).
The portfolio is rounded off with the new Prosetter CtP
imagesetter series with violet technology.
