Speedmaster XL 106-8 LYYL and Speedmaster XL 105-10+L. Average job throughput times of under 30 minutes for runs of 500 to 250,000 sheets boost productivity.
“We were impressed not only by the productivity of the XL presses but also by Heidelberg’s overall concept, its service and the skills of its staff,” says Jörg Oswald, Operations Director at Rondo Europa, explaining the decision to buy the two presses. “On the one hand, the high print speeds and throughput of the presses make them perfect for long runs, on the other, their short setup times also make it possible to produce short runs cost-effectively. Heidelberg’s outstanding service also means we can achieve press availability levels of 95 percent,” he explains. This flexibility and reliability is an absolute must when it comes to meeting market demands for smaller orders, quick turnarounds and absolute punctuality in a cost-effective way.

Proof of Rondo’s satisfaction with Heidelberg came in the form of a new investment at the Czech production site. Along with the Speedmaster XL 106-8 with dual coating technology, postpress equipment from Heidelberg has now also been installed. “The ability to produce extremely complex materials very cost-effectively – 254,000 sheets in 24 hours with frequent blanket washups – is just one of many examples of the press’s efficiency. Along with our highly qualified staff, these high-performance presses form the basis for our success,” says Oswald.
