Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG: Speedmaster CX 102

Flexibility for Success – The Ideal Combination of Innovation and Stability

The Speedmaster CX 102 is the forward-looking response from Heidelberg to the challenges of the market. To keep time and costs under control, is vital to cut the throughput times for each individual job. Shorter makeready times, consistently high production speeds, excellent print results, and high machine availability are the key performance features of the Speedmaster CX 102. These have been achieved by uniting the successful platform of the Speedmaster CD 102 with state-of-the-art technology from the XL class from Heidelberg. The result is a cutting-edge machine that perfectly combines reliability and innovation and gives you a decisive advantage in performance.

The Speedmaster CX 102 has all the flexibility needed to handle packagings, labels or high-quality commercial jobs. The press supports a broad spectrum of substrates with grammages ranging from light-weight paper to bending-resistant cardboard for almost universal application. The wide range of configurations and equipment makes it possible to adapt the Speedmaster CX 102 to each job's precise requirements and thereby ensure profitable production. The extensive automation and ergonomic operation of the entire machine deliver optimum efficiency and cost-effectiveness. This makes the Speedmaster CX 102 an ideal investment in the future.

As a pioneer of ecological printing, Heidelberg develops solutions to eliminate or reduce CO2 and process emissions and cut waste. Consequently, the technology of the Speedmaster CX 102 sets standards in more than just productivity. Its high energy and resource efficiency make it the most environmentally friendly press in its class. A measuring device can be used to measure and display the press' energy efficiency per 1,000 sheets during production. This allows the operator to run the machine with exceptional energy efficiency. Another way of reducing energy requirements is to employ a heat recovery system so that waste air from the DryStar Combination dryer can be re-used for the drying process. The Star System peripherals are perfectly coordinated with the press. They are highly efficient and designed to save energy and resources. Reducing or completely eliminating the use of alcohol by equipping the press with special packages makes another important contribution to green print production. This results in a print process that delivers eco-friendly operation at low costs.
