Speedmaster XL 106-6+L. 70 percent productivity increase, 60 percent reduction of makeready times, 40 percent more capacity – impressive figures.
“We’re absolutely over the moon with this machine,” says Kathy Atkins, Chief Executive of Riegel Communications Group. “We were able to raise our productivity by 70 percent, shorten the makeready times by 60 percent and therefore increase our capacity by 40 percent – and that’s exactly what we wanted to achieve. Due to the higher efficiency, our costs are reduced and we can pass this benefit on to our customers,” continues Kathy Atkins. The Speedmaster XL 106 replaces two older Heidelberg machines. A Speedmaster SM 52 and a Speedmaster CD 102 are still in use.
Riegel Communications Group from Ewing in New Jersey covers all the commercial printing production steps for its customers. They can choose either offset or digital printing. Prepress activities and postpress with numerous processing options, from traditional saddle stitching to embossing, complete the range. Customers are also given the opportunity to store their print data in a database in order that printed products can be supplied quickly and at short notice. A direct mail center and a fulfillment center are also available for customers.
“We can rely on the XL 106 completely. The machine handles 18,000 sheets per hour without us having to worry about impaired quality. And we need fewer and fewer makeready sheets – thanks in part to the Prinect Inpress Control inline measurement and control system,” explains Kathy Atkins. And she goes on to say, “In our opinion, Heidelberg is unrivaled. We’ve got a reliable partner at our side. This is evident when we look at the availability and the fast response if there does happen to be a problem at some time. That’s unique within the industry.”
