XL 75-8-P+L LED. Saving costs while enjoying all the benefits of UV printing.
“For us, the big benefits of LED technology are the visibly better printing results, the sharp and detailed image reproduction, and the greatly increased range of materials,” explains Christian Zemp, owner of Abächerli Media AG. “The wide range of substrates includes metalized substrates and plastic films as well as different natural and creative papers. There are big savings to be made as well. LED technology has enabled us to reduce our annual coating consumption by 15 to 20 metric tons. At the end of the day, we had been discussing reducing capacities in the 50×70 format to one machine for some time. LED technology from Heidelberg enabled us to do this thanks to the high productivity it offers,” says Christian Zemp. “However the jump in productivity is not just down to the LED hardening process and the instant drying of the printed sheets. The fully automatic, simultaneous Autoplate XL plate changer and the Prinect Inpress Control inline measurement and control technology also play a significant part in the improvement in performance.”
