Heidelberg Kord 64 ($7,500 OBO)
black body/short box model.
Max sheet size: 18.125” x 25.25”
4 form rollers
Weight: 5,850 lbs
Power: 3ph/ 4.0 kW/5.5 hp
We’re going to be sad to see this press go. Of the 20 years that we’ve been in business, this has been our favorite offset litho press that we’ve had on our floor, hands down. The swing gripper system, convex feed board with positive sheet transfer provides excellent registration. It can be run bearer to bearer, or variable/adjustable impression pressure. The construction of the solid iron frame provides what Heidelberg calls “no vibration” accuracy and consistency.
It’s a beauty. We’ve printed much of our LP jacket work on this machine, from single spot color to CMYK. Oversized posters, oddball packaging jobs, art prints, broadsides, hairline five color spot jobs on 18 pt. folding board. If you work hard for this machine, it’ll work hard back.
The offset K-lines were introduced in the early 1960s, with operating controls and a format that look very similar to the Heidelberg cylinder letterpress machines. Ours is from 1968. It’s in great condition, and is a pleasure to run.
It comes with tools, spare blankets, extra plates & masking sheets, all the manuals, and a dampening roller cleaning machine if you need it.
We’re hoping that this press will find a good home!!
