Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is now honored with their 37th and 38th star for outstanding and innovative products – making them the most decorated manufacturer in the industry.

“The InterTech Awards are an important acknowledgment underlining Heidelberg’s leading position in both digital printing technology as well as the digitization of the entire print shop operation,” says Dr. Ulrich Hermann, Member of the Management Board responsible for Digital Business and Services.

Both products were presented for the first time at last year's drupa – demonstrating innovations in productivity for offset printing and new applications in label production. The InterTech jury agreed that the Prinect Press Center XL 2 with Wallscreen XL and Intellistart 2 software represents a breakthrough in terms of the digitization of offset print production.

The Gallus Labelfire realized an outstanding engineering achievement by introducing industrialized digital print production into the label market, one of the industry’s biggest growth segments.
