Delta enhances production capabilities with Speedmaster XL 145-6+L


Delta Print & Packaging in Belfast is set to enhance its production capabilities, as it takes delivery of a Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 145-6+L. The significant investment in this six-colour press with coater, and a Heidelberg Suprasetter 145 Computer to Plate device which keeps the press fed, will ensure that Delta can continue to meet the growing demand which it is experiencing in printing Very Large Format.

Terry Cross, chairman of Delta Packaging, says: “Our business acquisition plans are on target and in order to continue to meet the demands that we are encountering, we opted to invest in some of the latest technology within larger format printing, to maximise economies of scale. We have customised the Speedmaster XL 145-6+L and incorporated Axis Control, to allow us to measure and log Pantone colours for repeat work.

“For any brand, colour plays a crucial role in brand identity. At Delta we recognise this and indeed it is our reputation for exacting production standards that has helped us to maintain our extensive and loyal customer base. Delta places a great deal of emphasis on the systems and processes that we use, to ensure that the quality of the packaging we produce exceeds customer expectations. Having the ability to accurately replicate colours is essential, for short term and well established production cycles,” says Mr Cross.

Investing in technology is something which requires a significant amount of research as Delta’s chairman explains: “Innovation drives our business. We have invested a significant amount of effort and resource into pioneering new technology, such as low migration barriers and coatings.

“The decision to install a six-colour and coat configuration press was not taken lightly. We did take into consideration operator familiarity, which will make the move to the new format easier for the operators. Also, the training Heidelberg provides is very good, as is the remote service capability.”

Delta Packaging’s Belfast plant recently completed a 55,000sq ft extension and it is this facility that will accommodate the new Speedmaster XL 145-6+L press. It will be co-located with one of the company’s two rotary flexo presses, as will new large format die-cutting and gluing capability.
