Imprimerie HLN Expects to Double Revenue with Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 106

04/04/2019

Kennesaw, GA - Imprimerie HLN, a family-owned company specializing in book printing located in Sherbrooke, Quebec, increased their sales by 30% only six months into operation of the Speedmaster XL 106-5P+L from Heidelberg. The highly automated XL 106 gives Imprimerie HLN the cost-effective solution they need to continue to expand their market share.

Superior and Easy-to-Use Technology

Replacing an aging Speedmaster SM 102-4P, Imprimerie HLN expect to double their revenue by increasing capacity with their 5-color Speedmaster XL 106 with perfector and coater. With maximum production speeds of 18,000 sheets per hour, the peak performance press can handle a wide range of substrates from 27 lb. offset to 32 pt. board.

The new press is equipped with a long list of innovations including “Push to Stop” technology, Prinect Pressroom Manager, and Prinect Inpress Control 2, which together provide the autonomous production needed to help improve makeready times while reducing waste. “The ease of use and new technology on the press is really what’s going to set us apart from competition,” said Robert Cote, co-owner of Imprimerie HLN. “You can’t even compare the XL 106 to the SM 102 – it’s far superior.”

Equipped with the latest “Push to Stop” technology, the Speedmaster’s jobs are autonomously changed over without operator intervention and will continue to print until the operator interrupts it. This software system reduces the number of operating steps during a job change and enables all operators to achieve uniform results.

With Prinect Inpress Control 2 on the press, the Speedmaster can handle even the most complex job changes at the fastest speeds possible. With this technology on the press, the Speedmaster XL 106 delivers the first measuring result in less than 60 sheets, and the run is ready to start in less than 1 minute.

Best Investment in the Imprimerie HLN’s History

This isn’t the first piece of Heidelberg equipment that impressed Imprimerie HLN. Back in 2009, they bought a Speedmaster CD 102-5+L at drupa, which they still qualify as the best investment in the company’s history. As the world’s most popular range of machines in the 70x100cm format, the CD 102 provides flexible processing of a large variety of jobs and materials. The easy-to-use CD 102 offers short makeready times and an attractive price/performance ratio – maximizing the profit potential of its output.

Alongside the XL 106 and CD 102, the company also has POLAR cutters and Stahlfolders. The company also uses Saphira consumables including blankets and ink foils.

“All of Heidelberg’s equipment and consumables work well together, which is why we choose to partner with Heidelberg,” said Cote. “If anything ever goes wrong, service is always there to help us, which is one of the reasons why we keep partnering alongside Heidelberg.”
