Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is celebrating 70 years of expertise in the development, assembly, production, and application of Stahlfolder folding machines from the Ludwigsburg site under the motto “Feel the Experience”. During this time there has been consistent progress in postpress – from the handcrafted folding machine of the past to today’s highly automated and digitally integrated folding machine. “We will continue to use our experience from 70 years of folding machines to expand our portfolio for industrial postpress with regard to digital integration,” explains Michael Neugart, Head of Heidelberg Postpress. “Foremost here will be the future requirements of customers, as demonstrated by the market success of the current Peak Performance Stahlfolder TH/KH 82-P folding machine.”

The Stahlfolder TH/KH 82-P machines introduced in 2016 are characterized by their patented solutions for “shingled folding”, and are aimed specifically at industrialized print shops and specialist bookbinders. The Stahlfolder KH 82 has been available since drupa 2008. It appeals to customers looking for a versatile, flexible, easy to operate, reliable, and compact folding machine. With over 400 installed machines, the KH 82 is the best-selling fully automatic combination folding machine on the market. To celebrate the anniversary, Heidelberg is offering a limited number of Stahlfolder KH 82 machines as an “anniversary edition” on attractive terms with a special price and shorter delivery times. The company is also offering folding training tailored to its customers in order to increase their productivity.

Customers can find all the details about the offers as well as read about the history of the Stahlfolder machines and register for folding webinars on the specially designed anniversary website www.heidelberg.com/Stahlfolder/70years.

Heidelberg also has big plans for the coming decades: “We will continue to develop our folding machines in accordance with our customers’ wishes in the future also, and see big growth potential in postpress. The focus will be on even greater user friendliness, as well as networking and integration into the workflow, as a means to transparency and continuous monitoring,” confirms Michael Neugart.
