A formal agreement between Heidelberg Druckmaschinen AG and palamides GmbH has designated Heidelberg as an authorized reseller of palamides delta Automatic Delivery systems for its line of Stahlfolder flat-pile, continuous-feed and pallet-fed folding machines, as well as its Stitchmaster ST 90, ST 100, ST 350 and ST 450 saddlestitchers.

Beginning Sept. 16, Heidelberg USA and Heidelberg Canada will sell, install and service the palamides’ delta 502 (20-inch) Automatic Delivery 2-up, the delta 703 (30-inch) Automatic Delivery 3-up, the 705 (30-inch) 3-up and the delta 1005 (40-inch) Automatic Delivery 5-up for customers throughout the United States and Canada. The delta is designed to streamline the production process by greatly reducing the amount of time and labor involved in gathering folded or saddlestitched product onto a skid. Heidelberg will sell the palamides Automatic Deliveries separately, or bundled with the purchase of a folder or saddlestitcher. Heidelberg also will sell Saphira consumable banderoles.

palamides delta Automatic Deliveries are distinguished by their mobility and compact footprint. They also set up quickly, resist marking, and are notable for their expert handling of slippery coated materials. A large capacity storage table permits time between packing. For some mailing applications and internal handling requirements, a chipboard inserter feature is available to prevent sheet damage and to stabilize the packet when running lightweight stock.

“As an Authorized Reseller of palamides delta Automatic Delivery systems, Heidelberg will enable our customers to maximize the high-performance characteristics of their existing Stahlfolder and Stitchmaster equipment, as well as derive significant production cost savings,” says Dan Maurer, vice president, postpress product management.  “Access to Heidelberg’s world-class service and support provides further assurance that their investments will be protected.”

In preparation for customer demonstrations, Heidelberg USA has installed the palamides delta 703 Automatic Delivery on a Stahlfolder TH 82 in its Tech Center in Kennesaw, GA, where it can be rolled over to a Stitchmaster ST450 in a matter of minutes.
