At a glance

  • In-mould labels

    Lightweight and thin materials place particular demands on statics and sheet travel. The Speedmaster XL 106 counters this with special equipment.

  • Check Created with Sketch.

    High performance for challenging materials

    Thanks to innovative components on the feeder and delivery, including supporting preset functions and optimized sheet travel, the Speedmaster XL 106 with IML Performance Equipment 4.0 effortlessly processes materials from a thickness of 40 μm.

    Optimal drying

    An extended drying section in the Y-units as well as hot air and infrared settings in one percent increments of the DryStar Advanced dryer enable gentle processing of delicate materials and perfect register even with thin plastic films. Automation, preset functions and storable settings reduce set-up times.

    Full drying control

    In the DryStar Monitor, sensors for temperature, humidity and air volume, including data storage, data transfer to the PC, software program for evaluation and connection to printing machine’s wallscreen, show the actual status of the dryers. The air volume of the exhaust air, the relative humidity (RH in %) and temperature of the supply and exhaust air as well as the absolute humidity (g H2O/kg air) and the amount of extracted water in the exhaust air (kg/water/h) are displayed.

  • Wet glue labels

    Thanks to its innovative components, reduced waste and production speeds of up to 21,000 sheets per hour, the Speedmaster XL 106 enables wet-glue labels to be produced economically.

    Simulation of spot colors

    The Prinect Multicolor Toolset spot color simulation using the four process colors as well as orange, green and violet reproduces a large color space and avoids color changes and wash times. This makes it possible to display different spot colors on one sheet. Using Print Color Management, the Multicolor workflow provides a standardized printing process with stable, reproducible quality.

    Sustainable label production

    The energy-efficient dryer DryStar Combination Eco saves up to 30 percent energy thanks to optimized energy input, integrated heat recovery and thermal insulation. The high level of insulation reduces energy consumption during drying and minimizes heat loss. The pressroom heats up less. Less air conditioning is required. The workplace becomes more user-friendly.
