The Next Generation of Commercial Printing Arrives at Wallace Graphics
Wallace Graphics announces the purchase of Heidelberg’s advanced offset press — the Speedmaster CX 102. This latest press model coupled with their Prinect Axis Control brings a new level of integration between software and the printing press. The automation, run speed, and color accuracy produce print collateral with a consistently higher print quality and a significantly lower production time. After seeing a demonstration of the CX 102, Jonathan Wallace, President of Wallace Graphics made the decision to purchase the new press to enhance their offset capabilities.
“Our set-up times have gone from 25 minutes down to five minutes and we now have the ability to preset multiple print jobs in a production environment. It allows us to offer our customers more cost-efficient printing in a wider range of quantities with quicker turnaround times.” The architecture of CX 102 press also makes it an efficient solution for print projects with multiple versions and multi-page catalogs.
With speeds of up to 16,500 sheets per hour, Heidelberg’s newest press analyzes each sheet on the fly for never before seen color consistency. Color is monitored and adjusted based on how the human eye sees color, rather than ink density.
Paper waste with the new Speedmaster is also a fraction of other offset presses for the most environmentally friendly press in its class. The intelligent control of the press is designed to eliminate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and reduce energy consumption while running at peak performance.
