The birthday cake went down well – together with customers from all over the world, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) celebrated the tenth anniversary of the “Saphira” brand. With Saphira, Heidelberg offers an extensive portfolio of high-quality consumables, both for everyday print jobs and special applications, as well as all production requirements for prepress, press and postpress. All consumables were optimized and tested specially for use in Heidelberg solutions. They help the user to exploit the full scope of performance of his machines and to achieve high-quality printing results. “The Saphira products fully meet our requirements”, confirms Benn Murphy, Managing Director of Clarke Murphy Print in Sydney, Australia. The full-service print shop has put its faith in the Heidelberg machines and also orders all its consumables, as well as additional service and spare parts from Heidelberg. “We see Heidelberg as a one-stop-shop and are impressed by the high quality and reliability of the Saphira products.” The AZ Druck und Datentechnik GmbH print shop in Kempten, Germany, has been working with Saphira products such as plates, inks, pressroom chemicals and printing supplies for many years. “We appreciate the know-how that is contained within Saphira products and we know that everything can be processed perfectly on our machines”, confirms Sebastian Aufter, Operations Manager at AZ Druck und Datentechnik.
At the same time, the Saphira products meet all industry standards for the protection of the environment and, overall, contribute considerably to the level of investment security of the equipment used. The ECO product line, which meets the strictest environmental protection criteria of the printing industry, should be particularly highlighted in this regard. Simpsons Printing in Rapid City, USA, installed a Suprasetter A75 and orders the chemical-free Saphira ND 100 plate. “We can now do without the darkroom all chemicals and water, and can image directly on the plate”, explains Vice President Jonathan Simpson. The environment is protected and costs are reduced.
Furthermore, besides the Saphira products, Heidelberg also offers consumables of other providers under their own brands.
