The medium-sized packaging manufacturer Karl Knauer, with branches in Germany and Poland, uses only Heidelberg printing presses and has operated a Speedmaster XL 145-6+LYYL at its German site in Biberach/Baden since 2009.
Karl Knauer opted for a VLF Second Life service package, including a complete overhaul with a speed increase to 16,500 sheets/hour, inspection control, and an upgrade of the press center, together with a 10-year service contract.
"We are very satisfied with the VLF Second Life project. As we have already been operating a Speedmaster XL 145-6+LYYL press since 2009 and are convinced of its quality as well as productivity, we opted for the overhaul offer instead of replacing it,” said Gerhard Kammerer, Head of Production, Logistics and Purchasing and member of the management board at Karl Knauer KG.
"The conversion of the first slots* went smoothly thanks to the short response times and the expertise of our contacts at Heidelberg. Since our employees are already familiar with the machine, only one training session was needed for the upgrades."
