Daily Printing Hedges Installs Varimatrix Die Cutter

Press release from the issuing company

Kennesaw, GA - Daily Printing Inc., a specialty, high-quality commercial printer in Plymouth, MN, reports the installation of a Heidelberg Varimatrix 105 CS (cutting and stripping) die cutter, which it purchased to supplement an older, much slower machine.  
While the company retains its existing die cutter, "We bought the 7,500 per hour Varimatrix as a kind of insurance policy against the day when the older machine would not be able to keep up with our throughput," said company president Peter Jacobson, who explains that both die cutters now run full time across one shift, turning out POP materials, pocket folders, packaging, direct mail, and performing perfing and scoring in run lengths from 2,000-5,000 pieces for a variety of local retail and manufacturing customers. "Not only is the Varimatrix faster and more efficient," Jacobson adds, "but it's also a lot quieter, which our operators definitely appreciate."
Daily Printing's all-Heidelberg pressroom is home to a 6-color Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105, a 2-color Speedmaster SM 102 perfector, a 6-color Speedmaster CD 74, and a pair of 6-color Heidelberg CD 102s. The new Varimatrix 105 shares the company's bindery with an assortment of Stahl continuous-feed folders, a Heidelberg Stitchmaster ST 400 6-pocket saddlestitcher, and a variety of POLAR cutters and cutting systems. In the prepress department, a Heidelberg Suprasetter thermal platesetter anchors the Heidelberg Prinect prepress workflow. According to Jacobson, the company is "slowly but surely" turning to Heidelberg Saphira consumables usage, based on results obtained thus far.
"Quality and service keep us coming back to Heidelberg," Jacobson said. "It really is as simple as that."
