Dirk Burger, Burger Druck Owner, explained that they decided to purchase the Scodix Ultra 5000 because digital enhancement printing is on the rise, and with this press, they continue to outpace the competition in the commercial and packaging sectors.
‘The investment will be particularly helpful in the short-run, high quality packaging arena where Burger Druck’s business is growing at a very healthy pace,’ said Burger.
Burger Druck has been excelling in delivering commercial print to its customers for the last 30 years. Quick to see the capabilities of digital, the business combined the benefits of both digital and offset printing at its facility in South-West Germany, printing catalogues, brochures, direct mailers and more. The company also made a successful transition into packaging and continues to develop its range of products, allowing customers to benefit from a one-stop-shop for print.
Burger added, ‘We see the Scodix Ultra 5000 press to be the seamless embellishment fit for the HP Indigo 12000 and Heidelberg CX 102 LE-UV presses, guaranteeing top-quality enhanced print product production. Working with coated and uncoated substrates, and the widest range of enhancement options, we can offer our customers so much flexibility, plus luxurious quality at an affordable price.’
Franz Repp, Scodix Sales Director DACH Region, further stated, ‘Burger Druck is a wonderful addition to the Scodix family and a deserving candidate to receive the first Scodix Ultra 5000 Press. The company’s range of jobs, average run lengths and substrate variations make this press the ideal platform to enhance not only their print products, but their current and future business. The value they will be able to create is priceless to their business.’
According to Repp, the Scodix Ultra range of presses are the preferred choice for printers to be able to offer shorter run lengths, enter new markets and gain a competitive edge in an industry where value-added services empower brands. The Scodix Ultra 5000 is equipped with dedicated designed capabilities for a large array of materials. The ability to print on thick papers and work with a pallet feeder and stacker supports the critical needs of a production print factory.
Burger concluded, ‘It’s an exciting time in packaging. E-commerce is booming and product packaging is a vital part of the consumer experience. Scodix digital enhancement provides instant visual and tactile impact that brands can really capitalise on and we’re delighted to be able to provide that for our customers.’
