Speedmaster XL 106-8-P. Some 80 million sheets printed since installation, and productivity up 15 percent.
“We are extremely pleased with our XL 106. This press helps us realize our production plans without any unpleasant surprises, and its top quality and performance mean we can offer our customers competitive prices and attractive conditions,” says Janusz Banasiewicz, President of the Polish print shop Perfekt SA. “Since installing it, we have already printed some 80 million sheets – simply unbeatable! We mainly use the press for runs that are either particularly short or particularly long. For one thing, we benefit from fantastically fast makeready times and low paper wastage, and for another, our lives are made much easier by the high production speeds and the Prinect Inpress Control inline measuring and control system when working with long runs. All this has boosted our productivity by over 15 percent.”
Founded in 1987, Warsaw-based Perfekt SA has developed over the years into a cutting-edge, highly industrial producer of publishing house products such as magazines, books, and brochures, some 40 percent of which is exported. Since it was first set up, Perfekt SA has made use of more than 100 Heidelberg printing units in the 70×100 format. The company has a workforce of 120 and offers a wide range of postpress options in addition to the prepress and printing stages.
As well as the new Speedmaster XL 106, Perfekt SA also uses two Speedmaster XL 105 eight-color perfecting presses, one Speedmaster XL 105 ten-color perfecting press, a Speedmaster XL 105-5 with coating unit, and a Speedmaster SM 102-2-P. All of the machines apart from the press with the coating unit are equipped with the CutStar sheeter. Dariusz Stachera, a printer on the XL 106, says proudly: “Our personal Speedmaster record is 270,000 sheets in 24 hours, including six setups. That explains why we’re so impressed by Speedmaster technology – it’s all about performance, flexibility, and machine availability. We don’t think any better presses exist!”
