POLAR LabelSystem DCC-M

This stand-alone die-cutter is fully adept to process compressible plastic materials in small as well as medium runs. It offers supreme levels of flexibility and is extremely user-friendly. Thanks to the OptChange feature, job change is just a matter of 10-15 minutes. It caters to label sizes ranging from 50 x 50 mm to 170 x 250 mm. In one minute it can run 6 cycles. The good news is that owing to the features of motorized precision adjustment and alignment & clamping of stack on all four sides, it is very much possible to achieve exact precision.

POLAR LabelSystem DCC-11

Backed by the remarkable counter-pressure system, the DCC-11 is the perfect proposition for highly-automated in-line production of plastic die-cut labels of sizes from 50 x 50 mm to 170 x 250 mm. The Automatic cutter Autocut 25 having alternate knife frame enables quick preparation of materials. Then there is the ultra-sonic welding unit, which eliminates the need of preheating, thereby, resulting in saving of material. It caters to die-cut formats of 46 x 46 mm to a maximum of 166 x 246 mm. In a minute, it can perform 8 cycles.

POLAR LabelSystem DC-11plus

This is by far the most productive and efficient systems for industrial production of banded die-cut labels. Owing to the menu-driven system, it is easier to operate the machine as well as reduce the makeready times. This machine enables print shops to complete 24 cycles in one minute and process a whopping 1440 bundles in 60 minutes! The OnePunchRegister helps in positioning the cutting die in perfect alignment with the printed image. Further, the system die-cutter DCplus comes outfitted with an alternate-frame system with patent positioning, which facilitates preparation off the machine. For precise adjustment, there’s a motor-driven single-station bander BDplus size adjustment.

All You Wanted to Know About the Carbon Neutrality Concept in New & Used Heidelberg Printing Machines

Used Heidelberg Printing MachinesEveryone is aware that CO2 emissions are the major contributors to global warming. In the wake of such a pressing issue, Heidelberg pioneered the concept of Carbon Neutrality in all its prepress, press and postpress machines. Unveiled at Drupa 2012, this technology initiative from the house of Heidelberg caught everyone’s attention in the press industry. Here’s a quick overview of the concept, which also goes on to prove the company’s commitment towards sustainable development:

The Concept

Statistics reveal that while there are several greenhouse gases that account for climate change, carbon dioxide is the biggest culprit. There are also many CO2 equivalents that have been causing the damage. These gas emissions are a direct impact of burning fossil fuels. Heidelberg came up with the initiative to calculate the carbon footprint and subsequently neutralize the carbon gas emitted while manufacturing the machine. It achieves its goal of compensating the gas emissions by purchasing climate protection certificates. Heidelberg buys the certificates of Project Togo in Togo, West Africa, which is said to support a reforestation project.

Calculation of CO2 footprint of printing presses

After a lot of research and taking into account the international eco-balance standards, Heidelberg collaborated with the TU Darmstadt to establish a method for calculating the carbon footprint of printing presses. Several parameters were taken into account, such as energy consumption, transport, and the various materials with their specific CO2 footprint. Further, they also calculated the CO2 emissions occurred at the premises of the suppliers.

According to the calculation model, the manufacturing process of a Speedmaster XL 106-6+L gives out approximately 260 tons of carbon dioxide. Of course, this would vary depending upon the model of the equipment.

Certificate & Label

The company also has a certificate from The Fraunhofer Institut UMSICHT, which states that the company adheres to the rules for calculating the CO2 footprint for manufacturing its printing presses.

The “CO2 neutral” label can be seen beside the company logo on all new and Used Heidelberg Printing Machines.
