Industrial packaging printers in particular benefit from the short makeready time and integrated blanking function of the new Powermatrix 106 CSB high-performance die cutter.
The new MK Duopress 106 FCSB can hot foil, die cut, strip, and blank in one pass, and in this way produce high-quality finishings within the shortest time.
The Diana Eye offline inspection system imposes the highest standards for flawless quality in folding cartons for luxury goods and pharmaceuticals.
Folding carton producers value the high flexibility and productivity of the Diana gluing machines. A new launch for drupa 2016 will be the Diana Smart with a width of 115 cm.
Postpress is of immense importance in the entire value chain in printing, since it is where the saleable end product is produced. Machines that deliver speed, flexibility, reliability, and top quality are required here, especially in the growth markets of packaging and product embellishment. The first joint appearance by Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) and Masterwork Machinery Co. (Masterwork) in Hall 1 at drupa 2016 will showcase and mark the launch of further new products from the successful partnership that precisely target these needs. One new product is the Powermatrix 106 CSB high-performance die cutter, which complements the existing Easymatrix 106 C/CS and Promatrix 106 CS die cutters and rounds off the upper end of the portfolio. For finishing using hot-foiling technology there is the Promatrix 106 FC and the MK Duopress 106 FCSB, of which the latter will be presented at drupa. The MK Duopress can hot foil, blind emboss, die cut, strip, and blank, all in one pass. The two partners will present the Diana Eye offline inspection system, which can check both highly reflective materials and high-quality finishing treatments such as embossing or holograms to ensure high quality for premium packagings. The modular and therefore versatile folder gluers from the Diana range are valued by large packaging groups as well as medium-sized folding carton producers alike. The Diana Smart 55 and 115 will be showcased at drupa.
“We have been working with Masterwork since late 2014, and have already successfully launched a number of products aimed at helping our customers operate economically”, confirms Harald Weimer, Member of the Management Board responsible for Sales and Service at Heidelberg. “We are now bringing further new products to drupa 2016 that will support packaging and commercial printers to stand out from their competitors. We also offer a comprehensive range of services for postpress machines to ensure reliable and fail-safe operation. ”
