Speedmaster XL 106-8-P+L LE UV. Using low energy to achieve high performance – reduced production times and expanded product portfolio thanks to LE UV.
“Our Speedmaster XL 106 is just like a luxury car,” says Marc Spitzlei, Managing Partner of Görres-Druckerei, describing his new flagship press. “The new 8-color model with LE UV technology was installed at our print shop in April 2015 and impressed us within a very short time. Sheets are delivered dry and ready for postpress right away. There’s virtually no need for powder, and printing is possible on paper, card, foils, and PVC. This gives us the chance to expand our product portfolio – we can now offer our customers a wide variety of finishing options, a significantly increased range of substrates, and faster production times. Inline surface finishing with UV varnishes in particular produces fantastic gloss levels and the feedback from our customers has been excellent. This is performance at the highest level,” says Spitzlei with evident satisfaction.
Görres-Druckerei, which now has a workforce of 107, celebrated 120 years in business in 2014 and produces commercial and packaging materials for demanding customers in industry, agencies, and cooperatives. The full-service print shop uses two other 70 x 100 presses from Heidelberg, a Speedmaster XL 105-5+L and a Speedmaster SX 102-8-P. Imaging is performed on Saphira printing plates, while Saphira process inks are used for printing.
“We’ve been working closely with Heidelberg for several years now. We made our latest purchase thanks to the high press availability, fast speed, long service life, and high value retention,” says Arnd Spitzlei, also Managing Partner at the company. “We have service contracts with Heidelberg for all our presses to ensure a high level of planning reliability – both in terms of costs and machine availability.” “We specifically chose the LE UV system from Heidelberg as we believe this technology is the best technical innovation in offset printing currently available,” explains Angela Nachtsheim, also a partner in the company.
