Discover the keys to print excellence

Find out how the unmatched quality of machine parts, the strict and comprehensive testing methods and our sustainable manufacturing options can contribute to your business.

This month's highlights


The Heidelberg owned foundry in Amstetten turns appr. 86,000 metric tons of cast iron per year into high precision parts. Perfectly tuned production processes ensure that all heavy metal parts - from the smallest to the biggest gear - will add to smooth print production.

Machine guards, cylinders, gears and countless other essential parts are designed and made in close cooperation between R&D and manufacturing.

Everything has to fit perfectly down to the last millimeter to contribute to the highest quality output possible.

Precision is in the details...

Proof of quality

Before a machine is delivered to our customers we also test the details for precision and quality to have the paper travel smoothly through each Speedmaster.

  • Optical analysis of electronic components is conducted with infrared, stereo, digital and even electron microscopes.
  • We test all electronic parts under different climate conditions from arctic temperatures to desert-like environments with the climate stress chambers.
  • The electronic compatibility of certain electronics are tested by analyzing electric, magnetic and electromagnetic emissions.


Making printing environmentally friendly is one of important initiatives. Speedmaster presses are a great example of how our technology can contribute to a better future and a cleaner planet. We are capable of manufacturing all our models completely CO2-neutral which makes them a great investment, also for our clients reputation.
