A whole range of coatings for customers with specialist
Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) recently
installed the world's first Speedmaster CD 74 in the new UV
version with double coating unit and two drying units at
Königsdruck Printmedien und digitale Dienste GmbH in Berlin.
This innovative new press was launched at the "Special
Effects" Inforum in Wiesloch in October 2002. It combines
conventional offset printing with inline UV coating. It is also
ideal for special applications such as gold and silver coatings
with additional protective coating, printing with pearly luster
pigments and processing scratchcard, blister-pack or scented
coatings. As well as conventional inks, it also processes UV and
hybrid inks. A press with a similar configuration to the
Speedmaster CD 74 with double coating unit and drying unit has
already been in use at a label printer's in Asia for
approximately one year.
"This new technology also opens up all sorts of new
design possibilities", explains Managing Director Olaf
König. "We are using it to give our customers a clear
competitive edge." Königsdruck offers its customers
comprehensive offset and digital printing services using the latest
printing technology from Heidelberg. The company moved to Berlin at
the same time as making the largest investment in its history.
"Our customers want their products produced faster and
faster and expect the quality to be outstanding," says Olaf
König. High levels of automation and standardized production
workflows help the company to satisfy its customers' needs.
What's more, when processes such as coating are integrated in
the press, as is the case with the new Speedmaster CD 74 with
double coating unit, this saves on material and costs. The new
Speedmaster CD 74 therefore does full justice to the
Königsdruck motto "There's nothing we can't
do!" The printshop is now also able to meet even the most
specialist customer needs efficiently and profitably.
Königsdruck in Berlin demonstrated to its customers the
features of the new Speedmaster CD 74 with double coating unit at
its Effect Coating Forum.
