Versafire EP

The Versafire EP delivers an extremely stable production at a constantly high speed and has been systematically enhanced for the needs of customers in the graphics industry.

Inline sensors enable the machine to control the color automatically during the print run. This process is analyzing color changes and adjusting the color accordingly ensuring a safe, efficient, and reliable production. Furthermore the engine is able to scan every sheet for errors like spots or streaks and notifies the operator to avoid production of waste/bad sheets.

The automatic inline registration process as well as a mechanical lateral register deliver high accuracy print results.

The Versafire EP produces 115 or 135 A4 pages a minute, and can process papers up to 470 g/m². Additionally the machine prints banner format with a maximum length of 1260mm simplex and 1030mm auto duplex. A top image quality with a new resolution of 4,800 × 2,400 dpi combined with a high throughput and reliable production make it the perfect match for the graphic arts industry.

Environmental credentials of Versafire digital printing.

How environmentally responsible are your printing processes?

The commercial market for collaterals is growing and changing as clients demand printed material with higher quality and shorter run lengths. The 2017 Drupa Global Trends Report showed that of all commercial investment plans, the highest percentage (31%) is towards digital toner cut-sheet color. The Versafire can produce high-quality printed material on demand with little waste and little waiting time. With the addition of inline finishing, no intermediate steps are required and touch points are greatly reduced.

The Versafire is a very environmentally responsible printing machine. It produces little or no waste, low emissions, and its consumables are efficiently recycled. A total of 99% of the toner cartridge is recycled; the plastic is taken out, pulverized, melted, and molded into new plastic. When possible, some toner cartridges are reused. However, this is a very small percentage because the high quality standard of the cartridges has to be maintained. The recycling process for the toner cartridges is a closed-loop process where all plastic is recycled, without degradation in quality, and thereafter used for another product. There is no waste, unlike open-loop recycling which involves waste disposal, for example, by incineration.

Therefore, the Versafire provides print shops with the ability to sustainably produce high-quality printed material on demand with convenience and cost effectiveness.
