02/20/2020

  • Suprasetter 105 DCL CtP platesetter at Griebsch & Rochol produces around the clock with availability of 95 percent, and has passed the one million mark
  • Speedmaster machines achieve an overall equipment efficiency of up to 50 percent
  • Further automation planned in the future

“We trust products from Heidelberg and in particular are very happy with the service,” confirms Rainer Grobe, Managing Partner of Print Media Group (PMG) based in Hamm in Westphalia. The partnership with Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) goes back decades, and is continuously being expanded. Griebsch & Rochol Druck GmbH in Hamm, a member of the PMG Group, recently celebrated a special achievement: the Suprasetter 105 passed the one million mark for imaged plates. This is a European record and is surpassed only by two Suprasetter installations in Asia. “As the world’s first user of the Suprasetter 105 with the Dual Cassette Loader, we had the platesetter up and running a full six months before the official market launch at drupa 2012,” recalls Mathias Kremer, Head of Prepress. “The platesetter has two cassettes, each of which holds 100 plates in two formats. We got the latest software updates through our contact with the drupa installation team and rarely had any other downtimes.” The press room is home to three Speedmaster machines in 102 and 106 format with a total of 23 printing units and one coating unit, which operate in three shifts, five days a week. All processes from prepress to press and postpress are controlled using the Prinect Production 2019 workflow. The Heidelberg Assistant provides current statistics as well as access to the eShop, where toner for the two digital Versafire printing systems can be ordered and service can be scheduled. The printing presses achieve an overall equipment efficiency of up to 50 percent. The company prints publishing products such as journals, brochures, financial reports, and loose-leaf collections for regional and national customers. The average run length is 3,500 sheets.
