German converter showcases digital printing press in production

Heidenheim, Germany-based Edelmann Group hosted 60 converters and printers from around the world at an open house at its facility, to see Europe’s first S10 Nanographic Printing® Press producing commercial jobs at 6,500 B1 sheets per hour.

Visitors heard how the new press perfectly complements Edelmann’s offset technology and how its customers now request its new printing capability because of the freedom it offers – to order what they want, when they want it – all with consistent print quality.

“In the print and packaging world, everyone wants to know if our S10 is running as expected. We repeatedly get asked if print quality is good and if we’re running seven colours. They also ask if we’re achieving 6,500 sheets per hour and if we’re able to produce commercial jobs,” comments Oliver Bruns, CEO, Edelmann Group. “The simple answer to all of that is, yes of course. The S10 is built to be a full production machine, 24/7. The colours are brilliant and vibrant.”

Bruns continues, “Before installing the S10, we were limited in the solutions we could offer our customers. B1 digital printing with seven colours and at 6,500 sheets per hour has eliminated these previous constraints. The installation has been a great success and we now expect to be out of beta in a matter of weeks."
