Constant high performance with the Speedmaster XL 105 - the peak
The properties of the Speedmaster XL 105 justify a new
performance class that extends the existing 70x100 centimeter
format product portfolio and went into series production in April
2005. The highlights of the press are a production speed of 18,000
sheets per hour, mark-free sheet travel, the effective Hycolor
inking and dampening system and the new coating unit with
MultiLoader system for rapid screen roller changes. The high level
of automation accelerates and stabilizes the printing process,
while the numerous preset functions minimize both workload and
makeready times. The result is a productivity gain of around 30
percent compared to previous presses.
The Speedmaster XL 105 supports between four and ten colors
and an optional coating unit. Since the end of 2006, a UV version
with dual coating units has also been available. Whether used as a
pure UV press or a hybrid press, there are no longer any limits to
the range of surface finishing options that are supported.
With over 2,500 printing units supplied worldwide, the
Speedmaster XL 105 is breaking new ground for industrial label,
packaging and commercial printing.
Printing Industries of America/Graphic Arts Technical
Foundation (PIA/GATF) is the world's largest trade association
in the print media industry, representing the interests of over one
million employees and more than 12,000 member companies. The
organization is based in the U.S. town of Sewickley, Pennsylvania.
PIA/GATF is the sponsor of the InterTech Technology Awards, where
outstanding and innovative technologies for the print media
industry are honored. Independent judges select technologies that,
in their view, will have a great impact on the productivity,
profitability, service offering and market opportunities of
printshops in the next five years.
The Speedmaster SM 52 with Anicolor inking unit technology
cuts startup waste by up to 90 percent. This enables offset
printing to compete with digital printing for short runs.
The benefits of the Speedmaster XL 105 include the constant
production speed of 18,000 sheets per hour, extremely short
makeready times and outstanding productivity thanks to the high
level of automation.
