Heidelberg Installs Armenia's First Speedmaster SM 52 Anicolor Press

Monday, July 25, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

Amikus-Print in Yerevan is the proud owner of Armenia's first Speedmaster SM 52 Anicolor press from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg). The print shop held an open house for customers and partners with live demonstrations on the four-color press with coating unit to showcase the possibilities offered by Anicolor inking unit technology. In conjunction with the Suprasetter 74 CtP system, the press enables production at the highest level. Thanks to the enhanced workflow, the print shop is now even better at satisfying the requirements of its customers - primarily pharmaceutical companies and banks - offering top quality and shorter delivery times. Anicolor technology boosts the company's profitability, with 90 percent less waste and 40 percent shorter makeready times. Especially in case of print jobs with light inking, which are particularly common in the pharmaceutical sector, color consistency over the entire print sheet is ensured. What's more, the Speedmaster Anicolor press is the best choice for short runs, which account for the majority of print production in Armenia.

"Purchasing the Speedmaster SM 52 Anicolor is the third phase of a complex program to extend our range of machinery," explains Vard Nazeyan, the owner of Amikus-Print. "We are looking to boost our business and further expand our production capacities. Our plans for the immediate future involve opening up new segments on the print market and intensive further development of Amikus-Print," he continues. The decision to make this new investment followed a visit to the Wiesloch-Walldorf plant of Heidelberg in Germany. Specialists from Heidelberg CIS took care of installation and training. Amikus-Print staff also benefited from practical training at the Russian print shop Formula Tsveta, where they familiarized themselves with the intricacies of the Anicolor press.

Amikus-Print was founded in 2005 and has continued to expand and improve its production capacities ever since. The company is proud of its first-class presses and the wide-ranging options they offer for making top-quality products.

Trend toward new presses among Armenian print shops
Armenia has some 150 print shops and they are increasingly investing in new presses with state-of-the-art technology rather than remarketed machines. A second Anicolor press has already been installed at another print shop, together with new presses in A2 format. Heidelberg CIS supports Armenian customers with a comprehensive range of services, including consulting, and perfectly coordinated consumables.
