What customers say

"In 2017, in a move designed to increase our flexibility and efficiency even further, we opted to invest in a five-color Speedmaster SX 52 press with coating unit. The press can be operated either with full-UV or LED UV inks, making us much more flexible when it comes to printing plastics. This means we can now also produce special applications such as mouse pads, mats and high-end gift boxes."

The patented Intellistart 3 defines all the steps required for the job change without any operator intervention and provides maximum transparency across all active and queued processes. Intelliguide simulates the time-optimized sequence live and, if necessary, also includes the steps to be executed manually.
