Speedmaster SX 102



No more flying blind.

As soon as the operator starts a job with Prinect Inpress Control 2 everything runs fully automatically. The measuring device finds the paper white as well as the colour control strip and delivers after less than 30 sheets the first color measurement result. Then the register is set correctly and afterwards the color control starts. If the required inking value is reached the production can start - on request automatically.



Fast inking-up.

The Color Assistant Pro continually adapts the ink presetting to the current printing conditions. Once a perfect coloring result has been achieved, all you need to do is press a button to save this optimized setting and apply it to follow-up jobs. If the CIP4-PPF prepress data and Prinect Inpress Control inline measurement and control system are used for web-to-print or catalog printing, for example, CMYK jobs can often go into production after just 60 start-up sheets.



Quick clean.

The fully automatic, program-controlled cloth wash up device with sensor-based monitoring for the rubber blanket reduce the consumption of washing fluid and cloths as well as the washing times. The Tandem function allows the simultaneous wash-up of the blanket and the impression cylinder. Also the wash up device for the inking unit works with a reduced amount of water and detergent.



Ink change - Faster, simpler and cleaner.

Ink fountain liner protects the ink fountain from staining. The foil can be easily replaced without additional manual effort. In addition, the side cheeks can be removed very simply. Parallel wash programs shorten makeready times additionally.



Fully automatic plate changing.

AutoPlate Pro offers a reduction in plate chinaging time of about 50% compared to AutoPlate. By integrating it into Intellistart this ensures an uninterrupted, automatic process chain when changing the job. During plate changing the operator has time for other activities.

Clean and green.

The cloth washup device is more environmentally friendly and faster than a brush washup device. The consumption of washing fluid is reduced, the washing result is much better and the disposal is uncomplicated.



More speed for more energy efficiency.

The individual components of a press have a fixed power consumption, irrespective of the printing speed. So at high speeds this fixed power consumption is distributed over more printed sheets. This therefore improves energy efficiency. With Speedmaster machines the maximum average production speed is achieved, which is why they are on average the most energy-efficient, based on net output.




For trouble-free production.

Our maintenance programs improve productivity and cut unanticipated down-time. They cover basic technical condition checks, fine-tuning of your press and, if required, replacing of wear parts. We supply you with a final assessment based on the maintenance we have carried out. This provides transparency in terms of your press' technical condition and if necessary, suggestions for additional corrective measures. This helps you to improve performance and throughput, safeguards your investment and maintains resale value.



Fast solutions.

In addition to telephone support, we provide a range of internet-based services that give you instant access to our expert knowledge. Heidelberg SystemService engineers can access your system on request, for example to provide live support. Our automatic emergency system eCall allows you to report faults easily and quickly to Heidelberg SystemService at the touch of a button.




Economical reel stock.

The purchase of reel material is usually much cheaper than comparable sheeted paper. Cost benefits can be up to 10 %. Further savings are possible due to the infinitely adjustable cutoff length of the reel material, for if the cutoff length is used optimally there will be no material waste.



Push to Stop: uninterrupted productivity.

For the first time, multiple follow-up orders can be prepared and released while production is still underway. In addition, processes are automatically started when changing jobs – and then run on their own. As part of this process, the color measuring system Prinect Inpress Control 2 with the Quality Assist function automatically switches the machine to “production run” once the defined quality requirements are met. This fully automated job changing – from the last to the first good sheet until production starts – is unique in offset printing.


User friendliness.


Everything in sight.

The patented assistance system Intellistart 2 automatically generates all the steps required for intelligent job changes and provides maximum transparency across all active and queued processes. The time-optimized sequence is simulated live by Intelliguide.


Don’t click – just print.

You can select jobs from the job list on the left, while on the right you can review the detailed job information and adapt it if necessary. With complete Prinect integration, you can select a job, review all the job data at a glance, then select and release a job straight away with just 2 clicks.



Fast change.

For a fast job change a database with substrate-dependent air characteristic profiles for all common substrates are available. The result is a perfect presettings using the Preset function. Comprehensive Preset function of format and air settings for all essential machine components as the Preset Plus feeder and Preset Plus delivery.



Quick and easy.

Thanks to the Roller Check Assistant the review and adjustment takes only 5 minutes per printing unit compared to manual adjustment which takes 25 minutes to complete. The easy roller setting is standardized for Speedmaster presses and therefore easily transferred from one machine to the other. The simple, fast handling allows a preventive examination and thus ensures higher quality, less waste and a lower complaint rate.
