Heidelberg sells another large-format press to China

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Yiwu Feile Color Printing Co. Ltd. from Zhejiang province recently signed the agreement for a Speedmaster XL 145 five-color press - the first in eastern China. This increases the number of large-format presses from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) on the growth market of China to three. Color-Bridge Printing & Packaging Co. Ltd. has already been using a Speedmaster XL 162 six-color press plus coating for its commercial and packaging jobs for a year. Last fall, Feng Yiu Packaging Co. Ltd. invested in a Speedmaster XL 145 six-color press for packaging printing.

Yiwu Feile Color Printing had been founded ten years ago and now has over 40 employees. The pressroom already houses three Speedmaster CD 102 presses - one five-color and two four-color units. The average job run is 5,000 to 10,000 sheets and the company operates two shifts around the clock. Managing Director Ye Wei is convinced the investment in the Speedmaster XL 145 will significantly boost print quality and also increase sales. The largest local specialist market for consumer goods is located in Yiwu, where the print shop is based. Demand for brochures and flyers is continuing to grow. Yiwu Feile Color Printing follows Heidelberg standards to the letter and is well-known for its excellent print quality. The company continues to place its faith in consumables and services from Heidelberg. "As well as our own corporate culture, we have innovative technology from Heidelberg to thank for our position as number one on the local market," says Ye Wei.

Large format enjoys worldwide success
The large-format presses from Heidelberg are of interest to industrial-scale commercial and packaging print shops. Speedmaster XL 145 and XL 162 presses are based on the technological platform of the XL 105 and deliver impressive benefits such as faster makeready times, less paper waste, consistently high print quality, good flexibility with a range of substrates, and high press availability. These features are enhanced by simultaneous washing of the inking unit, blanket, and impression cylinder, and synchronized plate changes in all printing units in just a few minutes. Last but not least, the Prinect print shop workflow enables this format class to be fully integrated in an end-to-end solution.
