The printing and finishing capabilities of this Heidelberg line make brilliant effects reality. The module is an inline cold foil applicator which makes it possible to utilise cold foil, seven colour printing and three varnish stations all in one run. It can be applied precisely with high resolution, even for fine structures. This offers great possibilities to create truly stunning solutions for premium packaging.
