Japs-Olson Installs Speedmaster XL 105 12-Color Perfector

Press release from the issuing company

Kennesaw, GA - The Japs-Olson Company in St. Louis Park, MN recently purchased and installed a Peak Performance Speedmaster XL 105 12-color perfector with extended delivery and aqueous coater, and featuring Heidelberg Prinect components including Prinect Prepress Interface and two Prinect Inpress Control reporting systems installed before and after the perfecting unit. The new press also features Heidelberg's 2009 InterTech Award-winning Prinect Press Center with high-definition Wallscreen Application. The company already is running the new press across three shifts, seven days a week, with no slowdown in sight. Moreover, thanks to not one but two integrated Inpress control systems, the new XL 105 can produce color-perfect printing on both sides, in one pass, at the full rated speed of 15,000 sph.
"We are very happy with the set-up and changeover times on this press, as well as with its overall productivity," said company president Michael Murphy. "I would say it's looking very good for fulfilling our expectations – and then some."
The new press joins Japs-Olson's Heidelberg-intensive pressroom, which already hosts a bevy of 12-, 10, and 8-color Speedmaster 102s. The company's full-service bindery offers an assortment of Heidelberg POLAR cutting systems, Stitchmaster saddlestitchers and Stahlfolders -including a new TH model with Speedbander. All machines are networked with Heidelberg Prinect components.
Japs-Olson is a 102-year-old direct mail production and commercial print specialist serving a national client base from its 500,000-square-foot facility in St. Louis Park. The company employs more than 500 people. What keeps longtime customer Japs-Olson coming back to Heidelberg? "Great equipment and reliable service," Murphy answers. "It really is that simple."
