Digital varnishing machines for smaller sheet formats


Steinemann will be presenting the dmax 76, a narrower version for spot varnishing on paper and board sheets in sizes of up to 760 x 760 mm at drupa 2016. The dmax family is rounded off by an entry-level model, the dmax 76c, likewise for the same sheet format. As a partner of Heidelberg, Steinemann will be giving live demonstrations on a dmax 106 in Hall 1 at drupa.

“Steinemann has been leading technical development in the market ever since the company built the prototype of a machine for UV varnishing record sleeves and the like in 1974. Our new dmax family is the latest pinnacle in these more than 40 years of practical experience. With their good price-to-performance ratio and excellent varnish application, the two new dmax models for smaller sheet formats are decidedly attractive alternatives to other solutions available on the market,” says Ludwig Allgoewer, head of digital varnishing at Steinemann Technology in St. Gallen, Switzerland.

All three dmax systems offer a resolution of 600 dpi and achieve an output of up to 10,000 sheets an hour; permit varnish application rates of 4 to 50 g/m², or optionally even up to 100 g/m², while at the same time offering high varnishing quality. The dmax 106, the top-of-the-range model for sheet formats up to 1,080 x 780 mm, and the new dmax 76 for narrower sheet formats can be expanded into multifunctional finishing systems by adding numerous options covering very different demands on UV varnishing – including a module for printing barcodes, for example. The dmax 76c was designed as a highly efficient system for users wanting to step into the world of digital UV varnishing.
