Speedmaster SX 102

Perfect Solution for Success – The Ideal Combination of Innovation and Stability

Well over 30,000 users worldwide place their trust in perfecting technology from Heidelberg. It gives print shops a crucial competitive edge by delivering consistently high print quality on both sides of the sheet at maximum production speeds. The Speedmaster SX 102 is the new press generation from Heidelberg for this segment. Combining the innovative and pioneering technology of the XL series with the successful platform of the Speedmaster SM 102, the Speedmaster SX 102 sets new standards in its performance class.

For many industrial print shops, the Speedmaster SX 102 is the perfect investment in the future. It offers the perfect combination of innovation and stability. Shorter makeready and throughput times and ergonomic operation of the entire machine deliver optimum efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Configuration options include anything from two to ten printing units, with or without a coating unit. Depending on the requirements, the Speedmaster SX 102 can be equipped with a number of components, such as the CutStar sheeter. Tailored to the precise application, it couldn't be easier to ensure profitable production.

As a pioneer of ecological printing, Heidelberg develops solutions to eliminate or reduce CO 2 and process emissions and cut waste. Consequently, the technology of the Speedmaster SX 102 sets standards in more than just productivity. Its high energy and resource efficiency make it the most environmentally friendly press in its class. The basis for this success is the tried-and-tested cylinder concept, which ensures reliable sheet travel with minimum air support. Low air consumption reduces energy requirements significantly.

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. 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 lower costs.
