The strategic partnership between Heidelberg and the Chinese company Masterwork Machinery Co. (MK) in the area of postpress for packaging printing is being further expanded. All Heidelberg distributors are now selling the die cutters and folder gluers produced by Masterwork, with Heidelberg looking after servicing.
MK will have the biggest partner stand at drupa in Hall 1. There, the visitors will see an extensive range with new machines.
In the future the value class will feature die cutters from the Easymatrix series which offer an attractive price/performance ratio. The professional class will feature die cutters from the ProMatrix models which are intended for medium to long production runs. A new launch for drupa will be the introduction of a die cutter from the peak performance class which delivers maximum productivity and can be integrated into a smart print shop with the Prinect workflow or data terminals.
“With MK’s well-rounded range of die cutters, we can provide the right solution for packaging printers for effective and economic production of folding boxes, no matter the application”, explains Harald Weimer. “The partnership with MK has gotten off to a successful start, and we will be showcasing new products at drupa for folder gluers also.”
