World’s First Speedmaster XL 75 with Anicolor Inking Unit Sold to German Media House
Another benefit from Reuffurth’s perspective is that all Anicolor machines from Heidelberg are supplied CO2-neutral as standard.
With more than 1,000 printing units installed worldwide, Anicolor technology in the 35 x 50 cm format has really proven itself on the market and is therefore now being extended to the high-performance Speedmaster XL 75 platform in the 50 x 70 cm format. Compared to a press with conventional inking unit, the benefits of Anicolor can be summed up as “90:50:50”—that is to say Anicolor inking unit technology results in 90 percent less paper waste (ensuring the greenest possible printing process), 50 percent shorter makeready times, and 50 percent higher productivity. Thanks to extremely fast and stable inking-up, OK sheets are often achieved after just ten sheets.
The next step is for field tests to be conducted for the Speedmaster XL 75 Anicolor at a packaging printing company.
