Kennesaw, Ga. –Since its debut at Print Media Center Atlanta (PMC-ATL) in December, the demand for the world’s only 40’’ press with 3 separate UV systems has been so high that Heidelberg USA hosted two additional open houses to satisfy requests to see the machine.
“Customers agree that the type of UV technology needed is driven by the application requirements, not the type of UV system itself,” said Andy Rae, Senior Vice President, Equipment. “With the hybrid UV press, we hope to support customers as they explore which type of UV is best suited for their business.”
The Speedmaster XL 106-8P+L is equipped with full UV, LE UV (Low Energy) and LED UV. The ability to switch between UV technologies gives customers the unique opportunity to test each against their own business needs and applications. Attendees agree this hands-on approach is far more comprehensive than simply listening to a seminar. Customers can see live results with their own product, application and UV choice of curing —it’s not just theory.
The XL 106, along with a full suite of products across Heidelberg’s comprehensive product portfolio, is now available for customer testing at PMC-ATL.
Heidelberg’s new DryStar LED, the latest UV technology, is the most advanced LED drying system fit for the Speedmaster XL line. This leading-edge system is the most energy efficient available with instant on/off and automatic sheet size formatting function. Designed for maximum curing at speeds of up to 18,000 sheets per hour, the DryStar LED utilizes the most modern semi-conductor technology and energy-saving cooling system for up to 25,000 production hours of operation.
