PrintWeek article highlights our £250k double Heidelberg Versafire investment

This article appeared in industry publication PrintWeek on 24th March which highlights our £250k double Heidelberg Versafire investment.

Quoting Optichrome Managing Director, John Heywood, the article said “Digital and what we put through it is absolutely critical to us, it represents 50% of turnover and the vast majority of our profit because we put through mainly variable personalised print, so it has to be dependable, reliable and we tend to require a lot of flexibility in the team so that our programmers can also run the equipment.

“We wanted two of the same because of the load balancing issue. If you proof a job on one machine and then it gets passed over and the other is busy, you don’t want a customer to detect any difference.

“These machines are much more robust, they go back to how digital presses used to be built, a bit more like the high-end machines in terms of construction. We also like its speed, and the longer sheet is another big bonus for us.”
