International customers experience IPEX innovations at Heidelberg

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

The three Commercial Print Information Days took place at the Print Media Center (PMC) in Heidelberg at the start of October. Almost 250 participants from all over the world gathered information about the entire process chain in the small and medium formats, from prepress and press to postpress. Exhibits included the Suprasetter A75, Speedmaster SM 52, SM 52 Anicolor, SM 74, Stahlfolder TH 56, and Eurobind EB 600. All the units are integrated along the process chain using the Prinect print shop workflow. The IPEX innovations Prinect-S and Easy Control generated considerable interest - they help small- and medium-sized print shops in particular to target their portfolios even more successfully in terms of cost-effectiveness and quality and harness the benefits of integrated production for the first time. Prinect-S enables a quick and reliable introduction to lean print production. Users benefit from all the key basic functions required to combine prepress and pressroom management in a single print shop workflow. Prinect-S offers automated prepress with PDF processing, layout creation, and proof/plate output plus management of all print jobs, including color presetting. Prinect Easy Control is an entry-level color measuring system for the Speedmaster SM 52 and SM 74 presses that is integrated into the Prinect Press Center press control station.

A further highlight during the PMC Commercial Print Information Days was the Speedmaster XL 75 with the Prinect Inpress Control inline measuring system. This system automatically measures and controls color and register inline, doing so on the fly and ensuring fast setup and continuous production monitoring, which cuts paper waste signify-cantly. Presentations on Heidelberg services such as Remote Service and eCall and on Saphira consumables rounded off the event.

The second event, which was held at the Print Media Center in Wiesloch-Walldorf in mid-October, was devoted to the IPEX innovation Speedmaster SM 52 Anicolor with new coating unit, high-pile delivery, and new DryStar Coating dryer. The some 50 visitors from Germany were impressed by this entry-level coating solution and its outstanding productivity, made possible by Anicolor technology. The Speedmaster SM 52 Anicolor generates 90 percent less paper waste, which particularly benefits the environment as well as offering fast makeready times. It is aimed at small- to medium-sized commercial print shops that can use it to enhance their added value through additional coating applications and get to the postpress stage faster. In addition to a purely protective coating, matt, gloss, and drip-off coatings are also possible. The event also featured a Speedmaster SM 52-2P equipped with a creasing and die-cutting solution from Cito, offering a fast and cost-effective alternative to conventional postpress technology. Print shops can stand out from the crowd through short delivery times, high quality, and cost-effective production, particularly in small-format printing.
