Speedmaster XL 106-8+L. This machine keeps its promises – a constant 18,000 sheets per hour and impressively short makeready times.
“We want to continually develop, become better, more efficient,” says Jim Hammer, President and CEO of Hammer Packaging, summarizing his goals. “The more we’ve grown the clearer it has become that only by investing in top technology can we continue to be market leaders for our business model. In addition to the ever closer partnership, the solutions that Heidelberg offers impress us again and again,” continues Jim Hammer. Hammer Packaging has recently installed a Speedmaster XL 106-8+L from Heidelberg in order to expand its capacity and increase its productivity. The machine replaces a machine from a different manufacturer. Two Speedmaster CD 102 machines and a Speedmaster CX 102 are also in use.
Hammer Packaging is one of the leading label producers for the food and beverages industry. In addition to offset printing, the company also uses flexo and digital printing presses. Hammer Packaging thus offers the entire range, from standard products to innovative special solutions. The company, founded in 1912 and headquartered in Rochester, New York, invests 10 percent of its turnover in new technologies every year. The Speedmaster XL 106 is the latest investment and it will help the company to double its sales in the next eight years.
“Over the last few years it’s become more and more evident that we need a well thought out combination of large and small-format machines. The machine constantly handles 18,000 sheets per hour and boasts impressively short makeready times. Plate changes take less than three minutes and, after 3 months, the totalizer count reads 19 million. We’re now switching to 24/7 to increase the throughput even more,” explains Jim Hammer. “We looked for the best 70×100 format product on the market – and, with the Speedmaster XL 106, we found it.”
