Heidelberg launches Eco Friendly Ink Systems
by Grant Draper
June 30, 2008
Heidelberg has strived to deliver high end printing presses and digital technology, year on year, and have now shown their interest in the environment.
Heidelberg will be exhibiting at the German based drupa 2008, which is the host to the world’s largest printing and graphic arts exhibition.
It will be here that Heidelberg will launch its InkStar, the InkLine automated ink supply system, which are manufactured from recycled materials.
Heidelberg will develop existing products around the Saphira brand of ink catridges, allowing global distribution links and retail outlets to choose whether they want to sell the eco friendly or standard option.
The Saphira brand will offer two varieties of products including composite cartridges as two-kilogram plastic-only containers.
The Composite cartridges’ design is significant, due to them being eco friendly, possessing plastic valves and plungers and a cardboard cylinder made from recycled paper.
Heidelberg has identified the market for environmental solutions with the printing and ink cartridge industry, with more and more restrictions affecting its current retail and whole sale distribution links, and has acted on the basis of providing an eco friendly alternative, if the company in question so wishes.
