Speedmaster XL 145 & XL 162.



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.



Fast job changes even by complex make ready processes.

Makeready times are a critical factor when it comes to frequent job changes. In order to minimize them, we have equipped the Speedmaster XL 145 and XL 162 with extensive automation functions that allow numerous processes to run in parallel and in this way save valuable time.



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.



Nonstop productivity.

On shift on a Speedmaster XL 145-4* at a leading online printer in Europe.
(*Maximum machine speed 15,000 sheets per hour).



Highly profitable even for small runs.

Highly profitable even for small runs thanks to shortest makeready times due to highest automation and parallel processes.



An optimal register.

Remote fan-out control (RFOC) for quick and easy adjustment at the rear edge of the sheet from the Prinect Press Center, fast accomplishment of a very precise register. With 4 Individual segments in circumferential and lateral direction in case of uneven paper stretch.

Clean and green.

The shortest wash program for the blanket, which is suitable for short run work, is able to wash the blanket 215 times with one roll of cloth.

  • Changing cleaning cloth during production is possible with the option of Blanket Wash-Up Pro without having to stop the press at all
  • All Presses are leaving the factory with preset wash programs short, standard and intensive. These programs can be edited or new ones can be added to customer requirements
  • Even with a intensive wash program 140 cycles are possible with one roll of cloth


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 section printing, for example, CMYK jobs can often go into production after just 60 start-up sheets.




Maximum performance guaranteed.

Press faults should be resolved as rapidly and professionally as possible. That is why we have the largest service network in the print media industry. This enables us to respond more effectively, quickly and efficiently – on site – as and when you need us. We have all the tools to provide you with the best possible support, wherever you are.



Every ton counts.

Highest print quality with constant 18,000 sheets per hour is only possible with robust press design of the Speedmaster XL 145 and XL 162.




Impressive performance in practice.

Impressive features of these machines include their up to 30 percent higher net output and up to 15 percent better availability than other solutions on the market. Jobs are produced faster and more cost-efficiently.

User reports


Complexity and efficiency are not excluding each other.

Synchronized washup processes, straightforward operation, and inline color measuring and control cut makeready times significantly and save a great deal of material, while also ensuring consistently high print quality – even for complex jobs.



Adapted to your needs.

The performance profiles of large-format offset presses need to be geared to the market’s job structure and thus to the customer. These presses are available with a variety of production speeds to suit specific customer requirements.



A perfect drying result.

The delivery’s modular structure supports longer drying sections that are perfectly coordinated with the relevant applications. The very longest drying section on the market can be equipped with up to nine slide-in units, which ensures smooth production and complete drying/ curing at maximum speed. What’s more, highly energy efficient dryer technology results in low energy costs per sheet for customers.


User friendliness.


Intellistart reduces walking distances between the machine control station and the printing press as well as downtimes.

Compared to the adjustment without Intellistart operator guidance system, up to 70% of the operating steps can be reduce - depending on the complexity of the job change.



Quick and easy.

Thanks to the Roller Check Assistant the review and adjustment takes only 10 minutes per printing unit compared to manual adjustment which takes 30 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.
