Heidelberg UK has teamed up with Masterwork Graphic Equipment UK to supply its range of postpress products.
This means that as well as the Promatrix die-cutter, Diana X and Diana Smart folder gluers Heidelberg will also be able to sell Masterwork’s hybrid machines including the Duopress. This is capable of doing both hot foil and emboss work in one pass at 6,000 cartons an hour. It can also incorporate both stripping and blanking facilities in a single pass, effectively providing 12,000 impressions an hour, producing fully finished product that traditionally would require two machines.
The agreement also includes offline inspection systems and other machines from the Masterwork product range.
Heidelberg will also be able to make use of Masterwork UK’s Wakefield demonstration and training facility
Masterwork has been in business over 40 years and is China’s leading postpress brand.
