Heidelberg Showcases Prinect Inpress Control for the First Time in Conjunction with a Speedmaster XL 105

Press release from the issuing company

Nov 10, 2006 -- For the first time, Heidelberg will be presenting the Speedmaster XL 105 in conjunction with the new Prinect Inpress Control inline color measuring system at an Open House event organized by the company and being held in Düsseldorf, Germany, from November 9-11. This means the color measuring and control system, showcased at Ipex in Birmingham, UK, in April, is now also available for Heidelberg high-end presses in the 70 x 100 centimeter (27.56 x 39.37 inch) range. The first deliveries of this press type are planned for the second quarter of 2007. Prinect Inpress Control will be available for the Speedmaster CD 74 from November 2006 onwards. Prinect Inpress Control measures color and register in the quality control strip on the fly. The new system significantly reduces press downtimes because there is no need to pull sheets or halt the machine during the setup stage and the register can be checked and adjusted online. "With Prinect Inpress Control, Heidelberg has developed a spectrophotometric inline color measuring and control system specifically for standardized print shops that change jobs frequently. Feedback from field-test customers confirms the system’s high level of reliability in terms of measurement accuracy and the major contribution it makes to cutting print production costs," says Dr. Jürgen Rautert, Board Member responsible for Engineering and Manufacturing at Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, describing customers’ initial experience of Prinect Inpress Control. The advantages of Prinect Inpress Control at a glance Quicker inking-up and less waste: setup and inking adjustments on the fly - without sheet pulls Precise color matching for CMYK and special colors through spectral inline measurement Consistent print quality enabled by continuous production run monitoring delivers increased customer loyalty No need for extra register adjustment thanks to automatic register control and adjustment in parallel to color measurement Flexible assembly using smaller control strips and variable positioning of the quality control strip from the front edge of the sheet to its center Touchscreen control on the Prinect CP2000 Center cuts the printer’s workload
