Heidelberg’s Primefire 106 and Prinect Press Center XL 2 have been presented with an iF Design Award 2017 by the Industrie Forum Design jury.
‘Operation of our products must be intuitive and efficient. Customer benefit is therefore our main objective in design development,’ explained Stephan Plenz, member of the management board responsible for equipment at Heidelberg. ‘Digitisation and design innovations from Heidelberg thus constitute a perfect, uniform solution. This is impressively highlighted by winning the iF Design Award 2017 for the Primefire 106 and Prinect Press Center XL 2.’
The Heidelberg Primefire 106, the first industrial digital printing system for B1 format, is the best of both worlds with respect to its design as well: it combines the flexibility of digital printing with the reliability and precision of offset printing. The new digital printing unit integrates harmoniously into the design of the Speedmaster XL106 press platform. Due to its clean structure, operators can familiarise themselves with the machine very quickly.
The Prinect Press Center XL 2 is the new generation of the machine control station from Heidelberg. Its detailed ergonomic design ensures simple, uniform operator guidance for Heidelberg digital and offset printing systems. Clean, geometric shapes define the work areas. Additional functions and dialogues can be called up quickly via the high-resolution Wallscreen XL.
