Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105 Perfector to Make U.S. Debut
Advanced automation in perfecting- Using the technology of Heidelberg's user-friendly Prinect Press Center, the perfecting device on the XL 105-P features fully automatic changeover capability. Set-up processes are aligned and repeat jobs can be easily stored. All changeover processes leverage intelligent sensor technology.
Superior storage drum - Sheets are turned over with the help of a new storage drum that features channel supports to ensure front-to-back registration and an eccentric suction bar that tautens the sheet for perfect alignment. The eccentric perfecting drum, with its large stock range and adaptation, easily handles thick boards or the finest papers.
Smooth sheet travel - Sheets are guided through the perfecting motion with the help of Dynamic Sheet Distance Control, which preemptively monitors and corrects the sheet's position as it transfers to the opposite side. Air jets are then implemented along with Venturi guide pans to further aid sheet travel in this complete transfer system specially designed for the XL 105-P.
Preset Plus delivery - Advances in the delivery, including the patented Venturi sheet guide, allow a sheet wet with ink to be transported at 15,000 sph while avoiding any contact with the press. Before the sheet makes its final entry into the delivery, the PowderStar AP 500 Duo applies the precise amount of powder and air cover on both sides of the sheet. The Patented Dynamic sheet brakesensure perfect pile formation in the delivery, and can easily be modified according to the print job.
