Monochrome production

Although more and more print products are requested in full color, there are still good reasons for black-and-white digital machines. Both the majority of all books content pages and most of todays personalized elements are still printed black-and-white and can be produced most cost-efficiently with a dedicated monochrome digital machine like the Versafire EM from Heidelberg.
