Heatset

About Heatset.

SHORT TO HIGH VOLUME

Heatset web offset printing is used for short to high-volume magazines, retail inserts, catalogues and brochures. By utilising a combination of presses we offer quick make-ready and flexible formats from A4, A5, tabloid, broadsheet and delta sizes. High quality coated, uncoated or mechanical and newsprint paper, ranging in thickness from 40gsm to 200gsm, can be accommodated.

The presses are equipped with a QuadTech Colour Control system, Brünner Flight Instrument Control, Multicam cut-off and Register Control System, which simultaneously manage dot gains, mid-tones and gray balance. Each print copy matches the signed-off proofs according to ISO certified standards. The presses are configured to offer a variety of in-line finishing and folding options, equipped with Planatol inline gluing and log stackers, and automatic palletisers. They also print alcohol-free, a more environmentally friendly process.
