Heidelberg expands solutions for North American short run market

Heidelberg will premiere its new Digimatrix 60 FC diecutter and hot-foiler as well as the Diana Go 85 folder-gluer – both machines aimed at short run and digital packaging solutions – at the first Printing United Expo in Dallas, Texas, October 23-25, 2019.  

The Digimatrix 60 FC is an ideal answer for digital run lengths. With a very small footprint, it runs up to 5,500 sheets per hour and can process sheets up to 23.6" x 17.7" – perfect for finishing a variety of short run or small format jobs. The foiling version of the machine (FC) allows for hot-foiling on a wide array of substrates. The machine can be equipped with Masterset, which registers each sheet individually via print marks for excellent print-to-cut registration allowing easy processing of digitally printed sheets. 

At less than 33 ft. in length, the Diana Go can produce cartons at speeds up to 250 m/min (820 ft./min) and a width up to 33.4 inches. It handles a variety of carton styles such as straight-line and lock-bottom, as well as special styles with attachments, such as envelopes or even presentation folders. The folder-gluer fits well in most short run, digital and/or commercial environments due to its compact design and versatility. 

The Digimatrix and Diana Go will join forces with the Versafire EP digital press and Prinect workflow in a live Digital Packaging Walkthrough each day at Printing United. The Versafire EP toner-based digital press can run at speeds up to 135 letter pages per minute and print up to 13” x 49” sheets. Capable of printing on 24 point stock plus a variety of synthetics, the Versafire EP is the perfect choice for short run and variable commercial, packaging or even label work.
