Heidelberg announces Diana Go folder gluer

Heidelberg and MK Masterwork have been showing off a new folder gluer, the Diana Go, aimed at both commercial and packaging printers.

Heidelberg is selling this Diana Go entry level folder gluer, developed by MK Masterwork.

Readers may remember that Heidelberg sold its postpress packaging technologies to the Chinese company Masterwork back in 2014. Consequently the Masterwork development team in Neuss, Germany developed the Diana Go to fit Heidelberg’s market requirements and using many of the design features from Heidelberg’s Diana series of folder gluers. The new Diana Go has been designed as an entry-level machine and is said to be flexible as well as having a comparatively small footprint of just over nine metres long. 

It can run a wide range of carton styles such as straightline and lockbottom as well as optionally special styles such as envelopes or CD covers. The Diana Go is able to hit a top speed of 250 mpm in a machine. There are options to integrate glue, inspection, and ejector systems.

The Diana portfolio also includes: the Diana Easy, a popular general purpose machine with more than 30 machines now sold in 18 months; the Diana Smart, a 450 meter/min workhorse; and the long established peak performance Diana X. The machines, which have all been developed by Masterwork, will be sold and serviced by Heidelberg. 

They are all built at MK’s European factory in Nové Město, Slovakia. This site was originally established by the Jagenberg company before being acquired and expanded by Heidelberg in 2003. It has been run by MK Masterwork since 2016, and has been further developed, employing some 150 staff today.
