World Arts of Spencer, Indiana expects to double the company’s capacity due to the advanced makeready technology on the Heidelberg Speedmaster CX 102-5+L, which will help increase efficiency on the company’s short run jobs.
Impressive Technology Boosts Efficiency
According to Matt Leach, General Manager at World Arts, “With our previous press, we were really falling behind on makeready times, which was making it difficult to satisfy our short run work. On our old press our makeready times were averaging anywhere between a half hour to an hour. Thanks to the Speedmaster CX 102, we can set up jobs in a third of the time, which is incredible.”
The technology impacting the makeready speeds includes Prinect Inpress Control 2, which is the industry’s leading inline spectrophotometer that measures and controls color and registers on the fly at any speed – delivering the first measurable result in less than 60 sheets. Shorter makeready times are also achieved thanks to reliable and fully automatic plate changes with AutoPlate Pro, which controls precise plate feeding and identification for exact and fast registration. During plate changes, the operator can perform other tasks while the plates are being changed.
