In this video, you’ll see multiple job changes and color wash-ups with Board, Paper and Label jobs all run in under 10 minutes. The new 2020 model Speedmaster XL 106 is all about Smart Manufacturing. Integrated and coupled with Artificial Intelligence, the Speedmaster XL 106 enables Push-to-Stop autonomous manufacturing, regardless of your operators’ skill set. Regardless of your market segment: Packaging, Label or Commercial, the Speedmaster XL 106 is powered by Prinect. With Artificial Intelligence tied into the makeready process, the tasks are completed for the full changeover of jobs, even down to the smallest detail such as the color wash-up.
Decisions are made for the operator to ensure the shortest wash-up time for the best wash-up possible–all based on the L.A.B. value of the ink. Smart Set-up on the new Speedmaster XL 106 enables User Profiles to determine specific task and function accessibility or limitations for your press operators. You can base the User Profiles on your operators’ knowledge and training background. Device assistance on the Speedmaster XL 106 ties machine components into the software for refined operations during production, with the possibility of tabbing the delivery pile or waste sheet extraction. With Heidelberg, streamline automate your processes and achieve your full potential throughout your process chain.
