Aimed at empowering current commercial and folding carton customers to expand into new areas of business, Heidelberg will premiere its new Digimatrix 60 FC die cutter 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, TX, October 23-25, 2019.
Digimatrix and Diana Go: Short-Run Packaging Solutions for Commercial Printers and Converters
For commercial printers looking to bring finishing solutions in-house or converters trying to find an economical solution for short runs, justifying the cost of a dedicated die cutter and/or folder gluer can be difficult. A flexible, small format die cutter and foil stamper, Heidelberg’s new Digimatrix 60 FC is an ideal answer for digital run lengths. With a very small footprint, the Digimatrix 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.
Heidelberg’s new Diana Go 85, a cost-effective, flexible and productive folder-gluer, is making its US debut at Printing United. 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. The Diana Go handles a variety of carton styles such as straight-line and lock-bottom cartons, as well as special styles with attachments, such as envelopes or even presentation folders. The Diana Go fits well in most short run, digital and/or commercial environments due to its compact design and versatility.
