Bruno Zucchi wanted to purchase a new press in order to offer
utmost reliability, the highest print quality and stay competitive
on an increasingly demanding market. The Speedmaster SM 74-2-P-H
was his first choice. "With our SM 74 we primarily print 4/4
color products from brochures and handbooks, to high-quality
corporate brochures for the automobile industry, to theater
programs, cultural maga- zines and beyond. Runs range from 1,000 to

Feeder with central suction tape
Especially important for Zucchi is the ease of use of the
feeder on the Speedmaster SM 74. "I can adjust the settings
for all kinds of stock extremely fast. I enter the values on the
touchscreen of the Prinect CP2000 and that's it," says
Bruno Zucchi. "I've almost forgotten everything making a
job change used to involve. I can't imagine working without the
Speedmaster SM 74."
Especially the Prinect CP2000 Center touchscreen display
reduces the printer's work considerably. "Touchscreen is the
best thing for a printer. It's simpler, I can adjust settings
more quickly and it doesn't cause any problems." Moreover,
any questions that might arise could be answered over the telephone
around the clock thanks to the Heidelberg Remote Service.
Bruno Zucchi says he has reached his goals with his new
Speedmaster SM 74 and is enthusiastic. "The Speedmaster SM 74
is the best machine for me - it's this and nothing else."
