Heidelberg’s Versafire CV Increases Companies’ Competitive Advantage for Smaller Print Jobs

Thursday, August 03, 2017

Press release from the issuing company

Kennesaw, GA – Productivity, efficiency and reliability are taken to a whole new level for companies who have made the switch to Heidelberg’s Versafire CV.

The superior digital color press offers impressive functions such as its ability to print five colors including white, clear varnish, or fluorescent neon yellow. The Versafire CV has a maximum speed of 90 letter pages per minute and produces outstanding quality.

Rocco Press Increases Capacity

Rocco Press of Paterson, New Jersey recently purchased the Versafire CV as their first digital press with the desire to handle a wider variety of print jobs. Being a completely Heidelberg shop, Rocco Press was eager to gain a competitive advantage on short run projects.

“We have a lot of long run projects that tie up our Heidelberg offset presses,” said Lou Rocco, Owner of Rocco Press. “We needed a machine that would be able to do the smaller jobs that really shouldn’t be printed on traditional offset because of waste and cost.”

The Versafire CV’s impeccable quality comes from innovative laser technology that delivers razor-sharp high-resolution images. This quality allows Rocco Press to produce print jobs that have the same result as their offset presses.

“I was ecstatic with the fact that Heidelberg’s Versafire CV prints the closest to offset compared to competitive units,” said Lou Rocco. “It was what we were looking for.”

Founded in 1938, Rocco Press is a family owned business. With 3 generations operating the presses, Rocco Press focuses on printing items from cut sheets to booklets and catalogs. They also offer full bindery and union label, if needed.

Valley Printing Cut Costs In Half

Valley Printing of Ceres, California replaced a competitive digital machine with the Versafire CV for better print quality and lower costs. Expecting to see their print jobs double in the next 2-3 years, Valley Printing has been able to cut their costs in half because of the Versafire CV.

Being a majority Heidelberg shop, Valley Printing has two Speedmasters, several POLAR cutters, and uses Saphira coating and Prinect software. Thanks to Prinect Digital Frontend, the Versafire offers short production times, fast job changes and personalization.

“It’s incredible how well your products work together,” said Kevin Wix, Vice President of Valley Printing. “Everything ties together. Your Prinect software works well with your presses and so on. Heidelberg is superior in both quality of the machine and the print quality they produce.”

Valley Printing is a family-owned business skilled in all aspects of commercial offset and flexographic printing, and the company specializes in sheetfed cut and stack labels. No job is too big or small for this Ceres, California print shop.  Valley Printing delivers top quality print jobs at quicker speeds than their competitors.
