Heidelberg Adds Neon Yellow to Digital Press

HEIDELBERG, GERMANY | Heidelberger Druckmaschinen is now offering an optional new neon yellow spot color for its Versafire CV digital printing system. Company says the toner glows under UV light, enabling it to attract even more attention and add unexpected touches to printing applications.

The effect can also be used as a security feature, since the toner is said to be almost impossible to copy. This makes it suitable for printing admission tickets or wristbands, for example, and other applications in the event industry that only light up under UV light.

In total, three additional toners can now be used in addition to CYMK: white, varnish, and neon yellow. Reportedly, operator can use the applications quickly and without the need for any other prior knowledge, through the interaction of the company’s Prinect Digital Frontend developed by Heidelberg and the color tools from the PDF toolbox.

All customers need is the toner and an additional developer unit, says company, adding that beside the low investment costs of the new toner, it can also be retrofitted to all Versafire CV and Linoprint CV systems already in the market.
