The Speedmaster exceeds all expectations
More than 180 days after installation of the Speedmaster SX 74 six-color press with a chambered doctor blade coating unit the technical Director Mr. Jonas Jonaitis impressed his enthusiasm for the Heidelberg press. “Installation and training by Heidelberg Service was just perfect. After six months the press gives us 60% to 70% more productivity in comparison to the press we used before,” explains Jonas Jonaitis. “Especially the stability of the sheet travel, the dampening and inking system and the ease of use are outstanding characters of this press”.
More than 90% percent of jobs are printed on metallized coated label papers with a grammage of 65-80 gsm. The machine runs in three shifts – 7 days a week. “The new Speedmaster SX 74 enables us to produce more than 1 Million sheets per month, even if most of our jobs need different pantone inks which cause a lot of make-readies and wash-up times. Also here the Speedmaster SX 74 exceeds our expectations. This was not possible with the press we had before.” adds Jonaitis. “Another advantage in comparison is the ease of use with the Prinect Press Center. Now it is possible to operate the whole machine from the central control consol”.
The transfer system from single suction tape feeder to delivery ensures stability. “Especially with metallized paper our interruption time during production dropped down to nearly zero,” highlighted Jonaitis “The print quality is typical Speedmaster – simply perfect”.
