Printmaster PM 52 From Heidelberg One Of The "Top 50 Products of 2004"

Press release from the issuing company

KENNESAW, Ga. – November 17, 2004 – The readers of the American publication Digital Output Magazine have selected the Printmaster PM 52 as one of the "Top 50 Products of 2004." Over the course of the year, the magazine monitors and compiles reader responses to the products in the "New products," "Tradeshow reports" and "Roundup articles" sections. These responses and the corresponding hits on the Digital Output website are analyzed and the products with the highest number of points yield the list of the top 50 products. These products are divided into four categories: capture, creation, output and finishing. There is no ranking system within these categories. In the October issue of Digital Output Magazine, the Printmaster PM 52 is represented in the "Output" category as one of the top 50 products. The key reason for this vote of confidence from the readers was the fact that offset presses from Heidelberg can be easily integrated into a digital workflow. One of the many innovations for this series at drupa 2004 was the move towards the networked print shop. The Prinect Online Kit and Prinect Classic Center remote inking and register control system provide the option of integrating the Printmaster PM 52 from the multicolor presses upwards, into the workflow online. This customer interest also demonstrates that the Printmaster PM 52 satisfies user needs. The Printmaster PM 52 is positioned between the Printmaster GTO 52 and the Speedmaster SM 52. It represents the ideal alternative for digital print shops that want to move into offset printing.
