Graphius Machinery

Offset Printing

The Graphius machine park is one of the most efficient and extensive of the European sheet market.

More than 126 recent Heidelberg printing groups in three printing formats (36 x 56 cm – 75 x 106 cm – 120 x 160 cm) produce in a full continuous process. All presses are controlled by the Heidelberg Quality Monitor reporting system that rigorously follows the required ISO 12647 standard and detects and adjusts the slightest deviations in real time.

A Kodak Nexpress, a Kodak Digimaster and an HP Indigo are ready to finish your personalized mailings, stationary printed matter, folders or printing on demand project in one- or five-colour printing with optional online UV high-gloss varnish.

Boekbinding

All the material was recently renewed, making the Graphius bindery the most high-tech bindery in Europe. Everything is done internally: from a stitched brochure to a PUR glued or sewn soft or hardcover book. The degree of flexibility and quality control we achieve is invaluable.

Color Management

All Heidelberg Presses are controlled by high-tech Heidelberg spectral measurement equipment. The system contains spectrophotometric software that reads control elements (minispots) on the printing sheets and immediately processes them into valuable information that can be used to automatically implement changes.

During the printing process, the control of mini-spots ensures much greater reliability. The fast software can detect deviations in the printed colour space and take corrective action in real time.

In addition, the analysis of the mini-spots benefits our daily calibration of the CTP installations and printing presses by eliminating the need to go through the entire calibration and proofing process. This not only leads to a consistency in quality delivered, but also in more sustainable production by generating less paper waste, less ink consumption, less electricity consumption and the like.
