Print service providers across the globe achieve top performance levels on their Speedmaster presses - day in, day out. In the current "Speedmaster. Unbeatable." advertising campaign by Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), they tell their success stories. Up-and-coming small businesses, industrial-scale commercial and packaging printers, and multimedia service providers from all over the world have their say at www.SpeedmasterUnbeatable.com.
U.S. print shop NCL is impressed with the Speedmaster XL 105-8+L, which produced over 77 million prints in the first year. "If you're looking for reliable speed, reduced paper waste, optimum color consistency, and outstanding print quality, the Speedmaster XL 105 is the clear first choice," confirms Richard Mueller, Chairman of NCL. The company produces labels (over 14 billion a year), lottery tickets, and coupons. The trend toward minimal delivery times is a major focus for NCL and it has just taken a second Speedmaster into operation - this time a Speedmaster XL 106-8+L with the CutStar sheeter and Prinect Image Control color measurement system.
Indian label and packaging printer Kamsri is committed to maximum quality and added value for customers. "We used to content ourselves with supplying what customers asked for, but now we focus on offering them real added value with high-quality products and solutions," says Kamsri Managing Director Suresh Srinivasan, explaining his recent investment in a Speedmaster XL 75 six-color press. With its consistently high production speed, it delivers end-to-end productivity. It processes numerous substrates in thicknesses ranging from 0.03 to 0.80 millimeters (0.0012 to 0.031 inches). In combination with extremely short setup times, the Speedmaster XL 75 thus offers key competitive advantages.
The Saxoprint commercial online print shop uses a Speedmaster XL 145-4 and Speedmaster XL 162-8-P in its production operations. "We don't want one-off records - we want top performance every single day. Being able to deliver consistent results month after month on an eight-color press - with job changes in ten minutes, superb quality printing of even short runs, and less than 100 sheets of startup waste - that's Speedmaster class!" says Klaus Sauer, CEO of Saxoprint. But it's not just in day-to-day production that the presses deliver top performance. Short delivery times are crucial for online print shops, but reliability is even more important. And 95% availability speaks for itself.
