We recently purchased a new Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75-6+L. This small format printing machine will be another great addition to the on going list of new presses we have put into our operation since 2009 (6 new presses now in the last two years and more on the way!). The new XL 75 – referred to as a “half format” press due to the size of sheet it takes will assist us with printing of smaller packaging products as well as shorter runs – reducing start up waste and freeing up capacity on our larger format presses.
The press has all the color control and stability improvements that are contained in the latest generation presses from Heidelberg and runs at speeds of up to 15,200 sheet hour. We expect to have the new press up and running around July of this hear – in Shenzhen.
