Press release from the issuing company
KENNESAW, Ga., June 22, 2005 – Heidelberg will demonstrate its passion for the printing industry at PRINT ’05 with the unveiling of its latest solutions and technologies – all designed to make today’s printers successful. The company’s vast range of prepress, press and postpress solutions will be on display at Booth #1200 at one of the world’s largest gatherings of international printers, the PRINT ’05 tradeshow, which is being held in Chicago at McCormick Place on Sept. 9 – 15, 2005.
“Heidelberg is committed to continuously developing and introducing new solutions and technologies that will help printers around the world make secure investments in their future while increasing profitability,” said James Dunn, president, Heidelberg USA. “Heidelberg draws on its 153-year heritage and reputation for quality, innovation and support to make the most sought-after sheetfed, prepress, postpress and workflow solutions for its customers.”
One of Heidelberg’s main attractions will be the XL 105 Theater - a special large-screen theater for live presentations that will house Heidelberg’s new Speedmaster XL 105. The first product introduced in the company’s new series of high-end offset presses known as the “Maximum Performance Class,” the Speedmaster XL 105 boasts speeds up to 18,000 sheets per hour. The press is the newest member of Heidelberg’s Speedmaster family of highly automated and productive printing presses and produces the highest quality product at the highest speeds, on the widest variety of stocks. Setting the industry standard for productivity, quality and cost-effectiveness, the Speedmaster XL 105 is a must-see solution at PRINT ’05.
Outside the XL 105 Theater, the Heidelberg booth will be divided into five solution areas to showcase new advances in each of the company’s major printing categories. Easily identifiable by color-coded signs, these areas will include Quick Print Solutions, Commercial Print Solutions, Industrial Print Solutions, Packaging Solutions and the Prinect Experience. Each solution center will house related Heidelberg equipment and will include an application center, where booth visitors can meet face-to-face with Heidelberg specialists to learn more about new printing solutions and technologies. Each solution area also will include “expert spots,” or special presentation areas designed to highlight key products. Heidelberg customers and other show attendees can visit these expert spot areas to hear first-hand about technologies and solutions available to today’s printers.
Heidelberg’s Prinect Experience will include customized demonstrations of the company’s Prinect portfolio of comprehensive workflow management solutions. This seamless workflow management system integrates and optimizes work processes in printing operations - from color management to production and from prepress to finishing.
