Since its presenation at drupa 2004, the Speedmaster XL 105 has become the benchmark in terms of production speed, print stability, and output, and more than 1,200 installations worldwide prove its unique position in this performance class. The Speedmaster XL 106 is the consistent further development of the successful Speedmaster XL 105. 18,000 sheets per hour in straight printing and in perfecting mode are unrivaled peak values. A 20 percent higher production means new opportunities for the highly industrialized commercial printer. The perfect interplay between preset functionality, a sheet travel optimized for maximum production speed and a machine that is consequently designed for top print quality as well as straightforward operation make the Speedmaster XL 106 the Peak Performance machine in the 70 x 100 format.
The Speedmaster XL 106 is equipped with components that help to reduce makeready time and to increase productivity. Heidelberg is the only manufacturer who supplies databases for characteristic curves for different substrates, speeds, and inks ex factory. This avoids many manual corrections of the complete machine and the production speed is reached much faster. The automatic wash-up devices for inking rollers, blanket and impression cylinder with optimized and individual washing programs across all series reduce washing times of up to 30 percent. This reduces washing of the blanket to 50 seconds in total. The Hycolor inking and dampening system in combination with the Color Package not only ensures the best possible inking stability in virtually no time, it also reduces makeready time as well as the number of waste sheets over the whole run length at any speed. The new control panel concept with glass touchscreen at feeder, printing and coating units allows a uniform operation of the complete machine. A process-oriented production process is thus ensured in conjunction with Prinect Press Center.
