Heidelberg Versafire CV digital printing system now also printing neon yellow

Monday, November 14, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Bright party invitations, dazzling bills and posters, eye-catching advertising leaflets, even in short runs, with or without personalization, and still cost-effective – from now on, everything is possible! Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is now offering an optional new neon yellow spot color for its Versafire CV digital printing system. The toner glows under UV light, enabling it to attract even more attention and add unexpected touches to printing applications.

The effect can also be used as a security feature, since the toner is almost impossible to copy. This makes it especially interesting for printing admission tickets or wristbands, for example, and other applications in the event industry that only light up under UV light. 

In total, three additional toners can now be used in addition to CYMK: white, varnish, and neon yellow. The operator can realize the applications quickly and confidently, and without the need for any other prior knowledge, through the interaction of the Prinect Digital Frontend developed by Heidelberg and the color tools from the PDF toolbox.

All customers need is the toner and an additional developer unit. Beside the low investment costs of the new toner, it can also be retrofitted to all Versafire CV and Linoprint CV systems already in the market; this is evidence of the high level of investment security that Heidelberg offers its customers, including for digital printing systems.

The neon yellow is really eye-catching and sure to be a boost. Many of our clients are showing interest in this feature.
The clear toner is not really 'varnish' and some caution should be taken to avoid setting the wrong expectations.
That said, it also delivers very eye-catching output with a look that is 'similar' to spot varnish.
Great addition to a fantastic product. Ricoh really got their development heads on when they built this.
