Saphira inks can be supplied with ICC profiles to help printers achieve the best proof-to-print color match. Saphira proofing papers are manufactured without optical brighteners to better match the press sheet. In yet another instance of the added value that sets Heidelberg consumables apart from generic competitors, the company recently added re-covered inking and dampening rollers to the Saphira line. The re-covered rollers, which are available for all Heidelberg Speedmaster presses from the QM 46 through the XL 105, use a German-made, factory-authorized rubber coating available from no other source.
Saphira Makes It Easy To Go Green
Saphira is also the first name in “green” consumables specifically developed - like all Heidelberg products and solutions - to help printers comply with environmental regulations and enhance sustainable operations. Printers can say goodbye to chemical processing, developer and water altogether with Saphira Chemfree Thermal Plates, or dramatically reduce their use of chemistry with the Saphira Thermoplate NA. Low-VOC press wash and a line of eco-friendly inks are in development and will be introduced later this year.
Heidelberg makes it easy to get acquainted with Saphira products by offering new and existing press owners Saphira performance kits, available for every press in the Heidelberg line, which contain every press consumable needed to achieve the high-quality performance and production results attainable on all Heidelberg presses.
Many Heidelberg customers who already buy Saphira consumables prefer to purchase them through the convenience of Web-enabled, 24/7, one-stop shopping from the Heidelberg Online Shop. Customer representatives are available to assist with product selection, and most orders can be shipped within two days. To learn more or to set up an account, visit http://www.us.heidelberg.com
