Mpress Becomes First U.S. Printer to Install Heidelberg’s Speedmaster CD 74 With 18,000 sph Peak Performance Package and Prinect Inpress Control
“We produce twice the amount of work than we did before in the same number of hours,” said Myers. “The operators go through jobs so quickly – jobs that used to take a whole day now take a fraction of the time. In fact, this combination of the high performance package and Inpress Control is like having two presses.” And because of this efficiency, Myers said he now qualifies for a discount from his local power and light provider.
With innovative solutions like Color Assistant and Prinect Inpress Control, Heidelberg continues to demonstrate its leadership in print technology.
“Heidelberg is dedicated to delivering the most innovative technology solutions in the print industry,” said James Mauro, Prinect Product Manager, Heidelberg USA. “The introduction of Prinect Inpress Control is part of our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with maximum efficiency, transparency and quality throughout the entire workflow.”
To ensure customers are using this new technology to its full potential, Heidelberg provides comprehensive training and support. Mpress had a full week of on-site training from Heidelberg to help operators transition to the new equipment.
“As you might imagine, if an equipment feature is too difficult to run or the results are marginal, the operator will turn it off,” said Myers. “Not the case here. We found an added benefit in that the CD 74 with Inpress Control allows us to go from 8,000 impressions per hour to 18,000 impressions per hour, while still getting our ink and water right, regardless of our operating speed.”
Prinect Inpress Control is currently available on Heidelberg’s Speedmaster CD 74 and Speedmaster XL 105 presses.
