Flyeralarm and Druckhaus Mainfranken invest in two Speedmaster XL 145 presses

Press release from the issuing company

At drupa 2008, the online portal Flyeralarm, located in Würzburg, Germany, and its production facility Druckhaus Mainfranken opted for two Speedmaster XL 145-4 presses with Prinect Inpress Control from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg). Druckhaus Mainfranken is a joint subsidiary of Flyeralarm and Schleunungdruck GmbH in Marktheidenfeld. The second press, which was taken into three-shift operation at the start of November 2009, has more than met the high expectations of the management team.

Christoph Schleunung, Managing Director and one of the managing partners of Druckhaus Mainfranken, praises the new machine's high degree of automation and availability: "We have been impressed with the XL technology from Heidelberg for many years. Therefore, we were delighted when the company extended this technology to large-format printing at drupa. Our machines can handle up to 30 job changes per shift. Taking into account the number of customers and delivery dates this involves, it quickly becomes clear how important efficient production and optimum reliability is."

Jan Barthel, Technical Print Manager at the Marktheidenfeld site, adds: "In terms of production, the Prinect Inpress Control system is key. The machine controls the registration and inking processes, thus easing the operator's workload considerably. In view of the large number of setup processes we handle every day, this is one of the machine's main attractions - in addition to the saving in waste. What's more, the continuous adjustment process ensures consistent inking throughout the production run."

Flyeralarm and Druckhaus Mainfranken specialize in the production of standardized print products at three German sites in Bavaria and Saxony. Their portfolio ranges from small-format advertising and business stationery through to brochures and A0 posters.

Heidelberg unveiled its new large-format Speedmaster XL 145 and XL 162 series to the public at drupa 2008. Since then, around 30 of these presses have been sold in Germany and other countries. The sixth press is currently being installed in Germany.
