Heidelberg Speedmaster 102 CD up and running

The Speedmaster CD 102 is the all-rounder for a wide variety of applications. Its flexibility and reliability make it the success story of the 70 × 100 cm (27.56 × 39.37 in) format. The Speedmaster CD 102 combines convenient automation with straightforward operation.  The sophisticated technology processes a whole host of substrates – from lightweight paper to board.

The Speedmaster CD 102 benefits from a comprehensive range of standard features that deliver quality, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. The Prinect Press Center Compact with its innovative Intellistart process-oriented operator guidance system ensures optimum integration of the Speedmaster CD 102 into the Prinect workflow. The Prinect Easy Control color measuring system, which is fully integrated into the machine control station, reduces paper waste levels.

The Preset Plus Feeder achieves uninterrupted production for the widest possible range of substrates from the very outset. The speed-compensated Alcolor inking and dampening system with Vario function delivers consistent color excellence. AutoPlate enables fast plate changes and short makeready times. The AirTransfer System ensures contact-free sheet travel. And the coating unit with chambered blade system satisfies even the most exacting coating requirements.

The Speedmaster CD 102 is not simply known for its productivity, quality, and reliability. Star System peripherals perfectly coordinated with the press benefit from highly efficient operation and conserve resources. In addition to air-cooled peripherals, Heidelberg also offers water-cooled units, which reduce power consumption further still. What’s more, heat can be recovered from this circuit to heat water or control indoor temperatures.

All this results in a machine that is easy to operate and offers proven technology at attractive conditions. Its value-adding credentials are a further factor in its success. Print shops can thus offer their customers a wide range of high-quality print products at excellent prices, which makes them flexible and gives them a definite edge.
