Heidelberg announces the following new product installations:

Clermont Printing & Office Supplies in Antigo, WI, has installed a Prosetter P52 violet platesetter with MetaDimension RIP and Prinect PDF Toolbox. The new platesetter is used to image Heidelberg Saphira violet plates. The installations mark the company’s transition from film-based to digital workflow, with associated improvements in quality and efficiency, and a reduction in fixed cost expenses.

The campus print shop for the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN, has installed a second Printmaster QM 46-2. The new installation also includes Heidelberg’s Prinect Prepress Interface, which seamlessly links the shop’s two-year-old, 4-color Speedmaster XL 105 with its prepress workflow system by transferring print-relevant parameters from prepress to the printing press.

Zapco Paper Inc. in Smithville, TX, a manufacturer of diecut paper products and security papers, has installed a Suprasetter 105 SCL used to image Heidelberg Saphira Chemfree plates, along with the Prinect Prepress Manager workflow, Prinect MetaDimension RIP and Prinect Prepress Interface.

The Graphic Arts and Imaging Technology program at Lenoir Community College in Kinston, NC, recently installed a 2-color Printmaster QM 46 from Heidelberg in its student training lab. The program aims to prepare its graduates for well-paying jobs in the local printing community.

Heidelberg has donated a high-speed, programmable Polar 92 XT paper cutter with CompuCut to California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly), San Luis Obispo, CA, for use in the organization’s Graphic Communication Department curriculum and Graphic Communication Institute for research and training.
