Swiss print shop Druckerei Lutz AG opts for waterless Speedmaster XL 75.
Since the end of 2005, Druckerei Lutz AG in Speicher has worked exclusively in waterless offset printing. By working in this way, employing heat recovery technology, and using vehicles powered by natural gas, the print shop leads the way in terms of ecology. From the summer of 2012, Druckerei Lutz AG will expand its waterless operations to include a Speedmaster XL 75-5+L. After successful tests in tough conditions, it was clear that the new waterless machine would be supplied by Heidelberg. This decision was based not only on the technical results but also on the knowledge that Druckerei Lutz AG could rely on Heidelberg to provide full support with a range of outstanding services

The Speedmaster XL 75 is the latest machine generation launched at drupa 2012. In this new generation, the DryStar dryer is equipped as standard with round-nozzle technology, thus offering significantly improved efficiency and smoother sheet travel. The new contact strip monitoring function is also available as standard. At the touch of a button, print engineers can now request a print sheet with the contact strips of the inking rollers.
A new washup system for rollers, blankets, and impression cylinders will significantly shorten the cleaning cycles and substantially reduce the consumption of cleaning agents. Automation modules such as Prinect Inpress Control and the Intellistart process-oriented operator guidance system will enable Druckerei Lutz AG to produce its medium-size runs even more cost-effectively. For operating, monitoring, and controlling the print system, print engineers will have access not only to the wallscreen integrated in the Prinect Press Center, but also a new terminal with high-quality TFT monitor on the feeder. The central control panel provides information on the current press status and enables direct access to all the relevant functions.
