Big benefits

“For us, the big benefits of LED technology are the visibly better printing results, the sharp and detailed image reproduction, and the greatly increased range of materials,” explains Christian Zemp, owner of Abächerli Media AG. “The wide range of substrates includes metalized substrates and plastic films as well as different natural and creative papers. There are big savings to be made as well. LED technology has enabled us to reduce our annual coating consumption by 15 to 20 metric tons. At the end of the day, we had been discussing reducing capacities in the 50×70 format to one machine for some time. LED technology from Heidelberg enabled us to do this thanks to the high productivity it offers,” says Christian Zemp. “However the jump in productivity is not just down to the LED hardening process and the instant drying of the printed sheets. The fully automatic, simultaneous Autoplate XL plate changer and the Prinect Inpress Control inline measurement and control technology also play a significant part in the improvement in performance.”

Abächerli Media AG in Switzerland is a one-stop shop for commercial printing products: media management, printing, and logistics. But the company’s future was not always so rosy. After the 2005 floods in Sarnen, which devastated the print shop, the previous owner Christian Abächerli had a difficult decision to make: abandon the print shop or keep it going? He chose the latter path, and built a strong management team with the current owners Christian Zemp, Freddy Fallegger, and Oliver Abächerli. The company went on to invest heavily in Heidelberg technology. With the introduction of an editorial system and a media system, Freddy Fallegger rebranded the company as Abächerli Media AG in 2012.

“We had been discussing reducing capacities in the 50×70 format to one machine for some time. LED technology from Heidelberg enabled us to do this thanks to the high productivity it offers,” says Christian Zemp. “However the jump in productivity is not just down to the LED hardening process and the instant drying of the printed sheets. The fully automatic, simultaneous Autoplate XL plate changer and the Prinect Inpress Control inline measurement and control technology also play a significant part in the improvement in performance.”

Abächerli Media AG was the first user of LED technology in Europe. However the company was not taking a chance on an unknown technology, given Heidelberg’s many years of experience in LED technology. Heidelberg is a trusted provider of LED technology in countries as far flung as Japan, where the first machines were installed in 2013. Now a large number of machines worldwide are equipped with this technology.
