German label printer invests in Linoprint L

September 18, 2012

The Heidelberg printer is a DOD system ideal for short to medium label runs.

VollherbstDruck from Endingen am Kaiserstuhl in Southwest Germany is the first German wine label printer to invest in a Linoprint L from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg). The print shop specializes in the production of wine labels that are also in demand beyond Germany's borders. Its portfolio also includes wet glue and self adhesive labels for champagne, sparkling wines, spirits, confectionery and tobacco.

The Linoprint L is a drop-on-demand system for economical, high-quality printing of demanding short to medium label runs and applications with variable content. The decision to invest in this technology was an easy one for Andreas Wohnlich, CEO at VollherbstDruck. The Heidelberg customer has been working with a 6-color Speedmaster CD 74 with a coating unit for several years and complemented this with a 4-color Speedmaster XL 75 press with coating unit in 2011, the company's 90th anniversary. The print shop also uses a Polar cutter and several Gallus reel-fed presses, including a Gallus TCS 250, a modular offset press with direct servo drive that can be configured and retrofitted.

"We use the Linoprint L to imprint data about the location, grape variety, and year on conventionally pre-printed, finished, and diecut labels," explains Wohnlich. "A further reason for choosing the Linoprint L is the energy we save through UV LED fixing, which delivers better results than previous imprint solutions."
