At the beginning of October, the packaging print shop Warneke Paper Box invited more than 60 visitors from the USA, Canada and Mexico to Denver for an open house, where it showcased the new Primefire 106 and its impressive capabilities. Warneke’s Primefire is the first digital printing system in B1 format in the USA and worldwide is the first standard-production machine delivered by Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) in July (see press release from 31 July 2018). The Primefire prints top quality with a resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi, and boasts a wide color gamut and stable color consistency. “The print quality of the Primefire 106 is unlike anything else I’ve seen, and satisfies all my criteria for a digital platform,” confirms Stacy Warneke, President and CEO of Warneke. Steve Huppert, Vice President and COO of Warneke added: “We can also migrate everything we’ve printed so far on our Heidelberg offset presses to the Primefire 106. The new digital business models, customizations, and personalizations enable us to generate added value for our customers, and we expect that the Primefire will account for 25 percent of our sales volume in the future.” Click read more below for additional detail.
