Heidelberg Speedmaster Provides Autonomous Production


Heidelberg has reported the installation of a Speedmaster XL 106-5P+L at Quebec-based Imprimerie HLN. According to the client, they expect to double their revenue with increased capacity.

Replacing an ageing Speedmaster SM 102-4P, Imprimerie HLN expect to double their revenue by increasing capacity with their 5-colour Speedmaster XL 106 with perfector and coater. With maximum production speeds of 18,000 sheets per hour, the peak performance press can handle a wide range of substrates from 27 lb. offset to 32 pt. board.

The new press is equipped with a long list of innovations including ‘Push to Stop’ technology, Prinect Pressroom Manager, and Prinect Inpress Control 2, which together provide the autonomous production needed to help improve makeready times while reducing waste. 

‘The ease of use and new technology on the press is really what’s going to set us apart from competition,’ said Robert Cote, co-owner of Imprimerie HLN. ‘You can’t even compare the XL 106 to the SM 102 – it’s far superior.’

Equipped with the latest ‘Push to Stop’ technology, the Speedmaster’s jobs are autonomously changed over without operator intervention and will continue to print until the operator interrupts it. This software system reduces the number of operating steps during a job change and enables all operators to achieve uniform results.

With Prinect Inpress Control 2 on the press, the Speedmaster can handle even the most complex job changes at the fastest speeds possible. With this technology on the press, the Speedmaster XL 106 delivers the first measuring result in less than 60 sheets.
