What customers say

The Speedmaster SX 74 is the ideal ‘workhorse’ for print shops that need to supply a wide range of products. For example, the adjustable transfer cylinders make it significantly easier to switch between thin and very thick substrates. The Prinect Press Center with the Intellistart operator guidance system ensures the ideal workflow in the event of job changes. And with Prinect Easy Control, we’re supported by a fast and reliable color measurement system.”

Key features

Heidelberg UX and the Speedmaster SX 74

For the first time, navigated printing with Push to Stop is possible on all Speedmaster machines. The patented Intellistart 3 defines all the steps required for the job change without any operator intervention and provides maximum transparency across all active and queued processes. Intelliguide simulates the time-optimized sequence live and, if necessary, also includes the steps to be executed manually.
