Printers Across The Country Tout The Benefits Of Heidelberg’s Technology Innovation
Oracle Packaging Experiences “Flawless” Start-up with Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105
Oracle Packaging gave itself an impressive housewarming gift when it expanded its operations in Winston-Salem, NC. In November, the company installed an elevated Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105-8+LX press with Image Control to handle its paperboard packaging work. The XL 105 is the company’s first Heidelberg press and the first offset machine in its Winston-Salem pressroom. The $235 million company was searching for a high-end offset press to round out its printing process offerings when it selected the Heidelberg technology. Oracle also offers flexographic and gravure printing to its packaging customers. “We were on a very demanding time schedule,” says Jim Hummer, director of Manufacturing Services. “It was one of the most flawless press start-ups I’ve ever experienced.” Eight-year-old Oracle Packaging has 850 employees across five facilities located in Winston-Salem and Wilmington, N.C., Thomaston, Ga., Philadelpia, and Toledo, Ohio.
Heidelberg Technology and Service Win Over Triangle Communications Group
Triangle Communications Group’s new Speedmaster CD 74 (format 23.82 x 29.12 in.) with perfector and coater has helped the shop exceed customer expectations with the latest technology. “We had to have a high-quality press to deliver on our core values: quick turnaround and the highest quality,” says Jeff Majewski, president of Triangle Communication Group. “The purchase needs were volume-driven. We didn’t have enough capacity and we needed a press with speed.” The CD 74 is perfectly equipped to handle high speeds with automated makeready, Preset feeder, AirTransfer system and easy-to-control sheet travel. It has already recorded more than a million impressions producing business materials, annual reports and other commercial work for local universities, advertising agencies, design firms and corporations in the Raleigh, NC area. Majewski wants to expand his clientele to include all of eastern North Carolina, and he believes the new CD 74, along with Heidelberg’s service will help the shop grow. “Heidelberg’s service has always been excellent. That is a major reason we decided on Heidelberg,” Majewski said. Founded in 1986, Triangle Communications Group has 35 employees.
