Speedmaster XL 162-6+L and Speedmaster XL 105-6+L. Faster, more productive, and easier to operate than any previous machines.
The perfect presses for the market of the future
“Using the results of a simulation study, we chose to make our purchasing decision on the basis of productivity,” explains Laurent Gangloff, Technical Manager of the Cartonéo Group. “A demonstration by Heidelberg and a visit to a print shop that performs several makeready processes with the press convinced us of the advantages of the XL technology immediately. And in the tests then carried out with our own data, the makeready times and print results really took our breath away! There is no question that this technology can significantly boost productivity.” The purchase was also influenced by the installation of the first Heidelberg press in the Cartonéo Group in October 2011 – a six-color Speedmaster XL 105 with coating unit and Prinect Axis Control spectrophotometric color measuring system, suitable for both conventional and UV printing. “The number of jobs printed per shift showed a boost in productivity after just two months in operation,” recalls Laurent Gangloff. “It is faster, more productive, and much easier to operate than the previous machine.”
