Speedmaster XL 106-5+L LE UV. A 30 percent increase in productivity with innovative technology from Heidelberg.
“Simply by dispensing with powdering, we’ve raised productivity in perfecting printing by 30 percent thanks to LE UV technology. All print sheets are output to a perfect standard, regardless of substrate and print speed, which we usually harness to the full up to the maximum of 18,000 sheets/hour. The time saved in postpress is impressive and work for our printers is made much easier.” For François Simon, the economic objective, including the environmental aspect, is met by the higher productivity throughout the entire production process – no powder, immediate curing, no protective coating, lower energy consumption, and shorter cleaning times.
Simon Graphic, based in Ornans in the green Loue valley, has made a virtue of its geographical location. With a passion for their jobs and the quality of their products, the two brothers and managing directors François and Antoine Simon are a perfectly coordinated team who have stopped at nothing to make the family business a 35-strong model company that combines impressive know-how with economic dynamism. Simon Graphic is the only print shop in France with a completely carbon-neutral range of machinery, from prepress to postpress. All CO2 emissions generated during production and transportation are offset in full. The company is also FSC- and PEFC-certified and holds the Imprim’Vert eco-label.
“In my printing career there have been three revolutionary developments – CtP, Prinect Inpress Control, and the launch of LE UV technology. We learned about Prinect Inpress Control, a system that is absolutely unique on the market, in 2009 with the delivery of our Speedmaster XL 75, which was also the first press of this type installed in France! The system ensures consistently perfect color and optimum print quality and has revolutionized our working processes in such a way that we couldn’t imagine life without it. Now we’re taking another major step with the launch of LE UV technology, also in conjunction with Prinect Inpress Control,” say the two brothers François and Antoine, who are already looking forward to the further potential for growth that the new press offers them.
