Heidelberg presents new Versafire EP high-performance digital printing system


  • Beta tester Unterleider Medien Gruppe enjoying the stability, productivity, and integration possibilities
  • Consistent color stability from the first sheet to the last thanks to the new inline calibration
  • New sizes and media processing offer further application possibilities

“The new Versafire EP delivers extremely stable production at a constantly high speed,” sums up Marcus Unterleider, Managing Director of the Unterleider Medien Gruppe. The company, based in Rödermark, has been testing the new high-performance digital printing system from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) for several weeks.

The Versafire EP is based on the tried-and-tested platform of the Versafire CP and has been systematically enhanced for the needs of customers in the graphics industry. Like the recently introduced Versafire EV
(press released from 20 March 2018), the Versafire EP has been developed for flexible production and maximum performance. Both machine models from Heidelberg feature the Prinect Digital Frontend (DFE) and an intuitive user interface that simplifies prepress work. The Prinect DFE uses the tried-and-tested Heidelberg renderer technology for the production of digital and offset printed products. This seamlessly optimizes consistency of color and form between the two production methods. “With the machines from the new Versafire generation, we offer our customers in commercial printing exactly the right solution for their applications,” explains Stephan Plenz, Member of the Management Board responsible for Digital Technology at Heidelberg. “The Versafire EV comes into its own in creative applications with many spot colors, while the Versafire EP is the high-performance machine for high volumes.”

The Versafire EP is available as a four-color press with redundant toner supply and technology geared towards stable, safe, efficient, and reliable production. It will be available in Europe from June, with other markets to follow soon afterwards.
