Speedmaster XL 75-5+L. How offset volumes can be increased significantly using a highly productive press with up to 20 percent shorter makeready times and only 20 to 30 sheets for setup.
“It used to take us 100 or even 150 sheets to set up a job. Now it’s just 20 to 30 for standard jobs. Makeready times have also fallen considerably and are at least 20 percent shorter,” says Production Director Ian Gatfield, explaining the benefits of the new Speedmaster XL 75. “The press is thus even more competitive than digital printing. Until now, our offset production was only for runs from 300 upwards – now we can deliver top offset quality cost-effectively from as few as 200 sheets!”
Wincanton Print, founded in 1980, is today one of the leading print shops in the southwest of England. With investments in cutting-edge technology, the company has strengthened its position in all production areas from prepress and press to binding. It therefore covers a wide-ranging portfolio, from commercial jobs for local customers to long brochure runs for national and international companies.
The high savings in time and paper waste made possible by the Speedmaster XL 75 are primarily due to the fact it is equipped with Prinect Inpress Control. The system automatically measures and controls color and register on the fly, no matter what the speed, ensuring consistently high productivity and quality. Gatfield believes the new press offers the potential to boost offset volumes significantly and to benefit from the increasingly positive economic indicators. “Our Speedmaster XL 75 has been configured to meet our specific needs and means we’re well equipped to meet all requirements.”
