Heidelberg Installs 1,000th Speedmaster CX 102 Printing Unit
The new Speedmaster CX 102 press already has pride of place in the pressroom. “This press is used for extremely high-quality production with protective, spot and drip-off coating and spot colors,” says Löhnert. The company’s core customers from publishing houses and agencies are impressed with the high quality and Löhnert Druck is looking to use the new investment to attract further customers in Germany and the rest of Europe. Printing is performed using inks from the Heidelberg Saphira series, which are optimized for the presses.
Eco-friendly printing thanks to energy-efficient equipment
The new press has an extensive array of equipment, comprising the automatic InkStar ink supply system, the Prinect Axis Control color measurement and control system, the dynamic sheet brake, and large wallscreen. The Speedmaster CX 102 also impresses with the high energy efficiency of the press itself but also with the peripherals such as the AirStar air supply cabinet and DryStar dryer. The IPA package enables Druckerei Löhnert to offer alcohol-free and alcohol-reduced production.
“These factors also played a role in our investment decision, as both we and our customers are attaching ever more importance to sustainable production,” says Löhnert. “Thanks to all these measures, we are well positioned on the market and will continue to improve our workflows. We regard Heidelberg as an expert partner that helps us expand our market position further with consulting, services, and, of course, technology.”
The Speedmaster CX 102 exceeds all expectations
The Speedmaster CX 102 enables customers to respond to the market trend for maximum productivity and economic success. The wide range of configurations and equipment makes it possible to adapt the press to the specific requirements of the relevant business model. It can be ordered in a variety of configurations, from straight press to dual-coating configuration and even as a Duo press with flexographic printing before offset.
