The Eco Print Center at Lokeren, Belgium ‘A fresh look with high quality story telling illustrations’ was the way judges of Europe’s National Newspaper of the Year Awards of Excellence described winners Trouw and De Tijd. Trouw, a Dutch newspaper, and De Tijd, a Belgian business journal, were both recognized in the National Daily Newspaper of the Year category during the European Newspaper Congress held at Vienna Town Hall from May 5 to 7, 2013. The publications, which are printed at owner Persgroep Publishing’s state of the art Eco Print Center (www.epc-nv.be), use Toray’s waterless technology to maximize the visual appeal of their infographic design and magazine-style layout. The eye-catching results have helped raise the performance of the printed editions of these two papers, keeping both readers and advertisers engaged with print as the publisher continues to evolve its publishing strategy.

“For many newspaper publishers, digital revenues have not developed as quickly as anticipated,” said Mr. Junichi Ishii, Sales Manager for the Graphics and Chemicals Sections of Toray International Europe GmbH. “With the increased quality of its publications made possible by the investment in waterless printing technologies, Persgroep Publishing has demonstrated an effective means of maintaining the interest of both readers and advertisers in printed newspapers.” “Publishers and art directors visiting the Toray information stand at the Congress were particularly interested in learning more about the new design and product opportunities waterless print quality offers,” added Mr. Ishii. “Waterless printing creates opportunity to differentiate product portfolios and adding value while at the same time reducing costs and offering a more sustainable production method.”

Xeikon organized Labelexpo Europe 2013 pre-show meeting on 12th May in Birmingham right after the Xeikon Café show which was realized on 11th May in the CS Label print facilities in Birmingham, England. A total of 16 magazines from Germany, Switzerland, France, Greece, the U.S and England including matbaa&teknik® maganize were invited to the press meeting. Xeikon’s innovative products, which are going to be showcased at Labelexpo, were presented during the press meeting arranged in Birmingham The Village Hotel. Located on its stand 9H45, Xeikon will demonstrate its hardware and software solutions that have positioned the company as leader in the digital label market. Xeikon is also a sponsor of the Package Printing Zone in Hall 12.

“We are especially excited about exhibiting at Labelexpo Europe 2013,” says Filip Weymans, Director Business Development and Marketing Labels and Packaging at Xeikon. “The historic size of the show makes it a terrific opportunity to continue our mission of educating the label and packaging markets about the benefits of digital printing. In that spirit, we are launching an innovative program called “See The Proof” that gives converters first-hand experience with the technology and see the outstanding quality for themselves.”

From June 15 to Sept. 15, label converters around the world can upload their own digital label to a special website: www.seetheproof. com. The labels will be printed on five different

materials; paper label, structured wine label material, metalized labels, transparent and white PE. All will be printed with the new ICE toner, that Xeikon will also demonstrate life at Labelexpo Europe 2013. Finished labels can be picked up during Labelexpo Europe 2013 in Brussels, Belgium, from September 24-September 29, 2013, at Xeikon’s booth, which is located in Hall 9 H45. Any labels that aren’t picked up at Labelexpo will be delivered to the owners after the show. “We’ve launched ‘See The Proof’ specifically to help label converters overcome any last doubts they may have about the quality of digital label printing,” says Filip Weymans, Xeikon’s Director Business Development Labels and Packaging. “The message we’re sending to label converters is, ‘Try it for yourselves, without any commitment or risk’. We are confident they will love the results. It may be the last proof needed to erase any false myths and to convince them of the need for an investment that will grow their business.”

The ICE toner will be demonstrated at Labelexpo Europe in Brussels, and will be available for customers as from Q4-2013. Part of the Xeikon Label Suite, the new toner is ideal for heat sensitive substrates including PE facestock (polyethylene) and thermal labels. This will open up the potential for a whole range of new applications. PE has a good flexibility and pliability, making it widely used for the surface of packaging that is used on regular and irregular containers that have to be kept away from humidity and chemical solvents. Typical examples include tubes and bottles which need to be squeezable or bags that need to be pressed. “Until now, dry toner technology was not expected to be able to work with substrates for this type of jobs. Following requests from our user base, Xeikon specifically developed the ICE toner to be suited for heat sensitive materials. We pushed back the boundaries in toner development and digital label printing. ICE toner is undoubtedly again a real break-

through in dry toner technology driven by Xeikon,” says Lode Deprez, Vice President Consumables & Process Group at Xeikon. ICE toner is based on the proven Xeikon QA technology, bringing the renowned benefits including top printing quality, high lightfastness, top opaque white quality and being able to print on conventional substrates without the need of specific priming. ICE toner will run on all new and installed Xeikon 3000 Series digital presses, and has already undergone extensive tests in the field with a number of existing customers. “The new ICE toner is tailored to the needs of our label customers. Xeikon listens to its customers, and has a team dedicated to product development in this area of the market. ICE toner has been designed to perform at the right temperature, and has been engineered to perfection for this additional demand, delivering only the very best in Xeikon quality. With ICE toner digital label production has just become even more versatile and powerful,” adds Filip Weymans, Director Segment Marketing and Business Development Labels and Packaging at Xeikon.

At Labelexpo Europe, Xeikon will feature its 3300 and 3500 digital label presses that excel in productivity and high quality printing. The Xeikon 3300, built around the commonly used 330 mm/13” web width, will be running with inline converting unit, including a laser from GM. The Xeikon 3500 allows the use of

material up to 516mm/20.3” wide, and will be running in a roll to roll configuration. Successful in a wide variety of market segments, Xeikon will demonstrate the capabilities of its digital label presses by printing labels used for Wine & Spirits, Industrial, Pharma, Health & Beauty, Food, and Beverage applications.

-

“The Xeikon 3300 and 3500 are powerful additions to any converter’s production platform,” explains Weymans. “But we also understand that installing a digital label press, in and of itself, is not enough. That is why we are committed to the development of a variety of software solutions that make the transition into digital easier for label converters while adding significant value for their customers. These tools and solutions will be on display in our Software Corner at the show.”

Xeikon will also be demonstrating its unique Web2Label workflow, an all-in-one integrated solution to produce labels from online input through the integrated laser die cutting of labels. “One of the differences label converters find when they transition label production to digital is a large number of shorter run jobs that were not possible to produce using conventional manufacturing processes,” says Weymans. “Having a customer-facing web solution that allows customers to quickly and easily upload these jobs with the ability to funnel them directly into production is the only way to manage these smaller jobs profitably. With Web2Label, Xeikon offers a unique workflow to the on-demand label production process that ensures fast time to market, fewer touches and lower costs for the converter and his customers.”

Xeikon software solutions featured at Labelexpo Europe include: ColorControl, a powerful cloud-based color management tool ensuring repeatable, predictable colors; ColorMagic, a clever tool that saves label converters printing on clear substrates a significant amount of time in prepress; Vectorizor, the missing link in a digital print and digital die-cut environment; MyPress, the state-of-the-art user interface for the Xeikon X-800 digital front-end, built from the ground up and based on input from operators in the field.

In Labelexpo’s popular Package Printing Zone in Hall 12, Xeikon will be demonstrating its folding carton solution with a Xeikon 3500 running the Alpine 516 fuser, with inline Bograma finishing unit. “While labels are moving to digital production more quickly than other packaging segments,” Weymans comments, “folding cartons are not far behind. With this innovative approach to end-to-end manufacturing for short-run folding cartons, Xeikon is bringing its digital printing expertise to the folding carton market as well.”

HP Latex Printing Technologies were introduced in 2008 as a water-based alternative to solvent ink technologies. Since then, more than 15,000 HP Latex printers have been shipped worldwide and more than 100 million square metres have been printed with HP Latex Inks. HP expects these numbers to triple by 2016, with the number of latex-printed pages growing rapidly while the number of solventprinted pages simultaneously declines by as much as 33 per cent. The HP Latex 3000 Printer will help drive this growth, allowing a broader range of sign and display customers to shift pages from traditional solvent and UV-curable technologies to HP Latex Printing Technologies. “Industrial print service providers constantly battle increasing competition along with shrinking timelines and budgets for big projects in this buyers’ market,” said Xavier Garcia, vice president and general manager, Large-Format Sign and Display Division, HP. “As the leader in large-format printing, HP is offering latex solutions that give our customers a unique advantage to cost-effectively address these challenges with new levels of productivity, quality and application versatility.”

HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press powered by HP Scitex High Dynamic Range (HDR) Printing Technology to help high-volume print service providers (PSPs) increase profitability by shifting their retail graphics and corrugated display applications from analogue to digital. The point of purchase (POP) graphics and corrugated display market has been dominated by analogue production methods. As demand for shorter runs and faster turnaround times has increased, PSPs have found it more difficult to profitably produce these applications with analogue printing presses. Other applications required a combination of higher print quality and productivity than digital could historically deliver. The HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press addresses these challenges, enabling PSPs to capture part of the 6.8-billion-square-metre page opportunity in the retail graphics and corrugated display markets. “To date, digital printing customers have had to choose between productivity and quality, always sacrificing one feature for the other,” said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Graphics Solutions Business, HP. “The HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press changes the game, providing a unique combination of

speed, quality and versatility to cost-effectively meet the standards set by offset while taking advantage of the short runs, personalisation and quick turnarounds possible with digital.” The six-colour HP Scitex HDR printing system delivers high quality and industrial productivity along with dynamic dot-size control. Using HP Scitex HDR printing technology, the HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press combines 16-grey-level printing with the ability to produce 1,000 B1 sheets in less than two hours. These features help PSPs achieve the quality and speed required by traditional offset applications while addressing growing demand for short runs, quick turnarounds and variable content. The HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press with HP Scitex HDR Printing Technology demonstrated for the first time at FESPA Digital 2013. At the show, HP also is announced Sabaté as a new customer for the HP Latex 3000 Printer, which delivers high-value applications with improved productivity, quality and versatility. Additionally, HP is introducing two new HP raster image processor (RIP) software options for HP Scitex and Latex printers.

lent adhesion on a wide media range at high productivity and comply with ISO proofing standards, helping customers match colours between digital and analogue processes. Furthermore, upgradeability is built into HP Scitex HDR Printing Technology, helping customers protect their investment. “We have been beta testing the HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press since April and have found it offers improved performance in terms of speed and output quality over any other technology we’ve run to date,” said Gerhard Worch, managing director, KL Druck. “Thanks to the press’ new inks, we can now print to more plastic surfaces. We are also experiencing better margins that ensure we remain competitive, while still enjoying healthy profits.” To improve customers’ productivity and profitability, HP Scitex bundles the HP On-site Uptime Parts Kits, HP Ramp-up Service and HP Customer Care Programs in contracts. Automated press calibrations help operators maintain productivity, save time and improve efficiency, while the HP Scitex Print Care proactive maintenance scheduler with automated diagnostics and alerts helps customers keep their printers running smoothly. The HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press featuring HP Scitex HDR Printing Technology is expected to be available worldwide beginning 1 November 2013.

The jury for the ProCarton/ECMA Awards presented to the 2011 winners at a ceremony in April 2012, was undivided. First prize in the Beauty & Cosmetics category went to Carl Edelmann GmbH for packaging created for the Yin Yang face care family from Deynique Cosmetics. The jury described the packaging as an exceptional example of what can be achieved by a folding carton manufacturer, remarking that the simplicity of the design is extremely effective. The eye-catching built-in ‘space’ between the top and bottom sections of the box makes a greater impact on the shelf - which is key in this industry.

The annual Pro Carton/ECMA Awards for excellence in packaging have been running for fifteen years and are now among the most prestigious awards of their type in Europe. One hundred fourteen nominated designs were judged, and the prizewinning ideas are inspirational, particularly in view of the growing importance of sustainable packaging and increasing consumer demand for carton based solutions. In the case of Yin Yang, the jury was of the opinion that the combination of unparalleled material quality, simple design and the effective use of printing and finishing techniques resulted in an outstanding folding carton. “We are pleased that our premium paperboard, Algro Design, played a major role in Edelmann and Yin Yang receiving this prestigious recognition,” Lars Scheidweiler, Business Manager SBB Cartonboard at Sappi in Alfeld, Germany.

“We were very fortunate that Deynique Cosmetics was so open to creative ideas and had the determination to make this complex packaging design a reality,” explains Helmut Sieber, Senior Packaging Development Manager at Carl Edelmann GmbH in Heidenheim (Germany). “Some manufacturers shy away from unusual designs because the high level of manual work and design skills involved means higher costs per package. But the manufacturer of the Yin Yang face care family firmly believed that premium products deserve premium packaging, without compromise, for maximum shelf appeal.” For Yin Yang, Edelmann — a specialist in folding cartons, packaging inserts and system solutions with a focus on the beauty and healthcare market — designed a multipart package with clean lines and an unusual construction, reflecting the Asian concept of yin and yang. The graphic concept was designed in collaboration with creative partner Eyedea Werbe GmbH. In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang are two opposing forces that are found everywhere in nature, opposites that cannot exist, one without the other. Examples include hot and cold, tension and relaxation, positive and negative, activity and rest. When both poles are in balance, the complementary opposites give rise to a flow of energy. This natural harmony and balance is reflected in the product, the material and the packaging design. Carl Edelmann has been a leading player in the packaging industry for close to a century (the company celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2013). What began with the acquisition of a small printing works in Heidenheim in 1913 has grown into a family business that now employs some 1,900 people. The com-

pany is a market leader in many areas, including the production of folding cartons for the pharmaceutical industry, and plays a leading role as a packaging partner offering premium printing and finishing techniques for highquality consumer goods. Edelmann has subsidiaries and agencies in France, UK, Poland, Mexico and China. Folding cartons designed by the Edelmann Group have been winning national and international awards for almost 40 years; the company has won the Pro Carton/ECAM Award at least a dozen times.

When Edelmann began developing the packaging concept, the design of the bottles and dispensers was already complete. Edelmann began with the principle that the harmonious balance of yin and yang should be expressed at all levels of the packaging design. The box consists of five parts: top, bottom and middle sections; and two additional parts inside. These are also made of carton board and hold the product in place. The words ‘Yin’ and ‘MaxXimas’ are embossed and the word ‘Yang’ is foil-embossed in silver. Fine lines on the recessed part of the packaging were embossed separately in the Algro Design paperboard used to construct the packaging. The entire box is given a matt coating. Assembling the various parts is relatively time-consuming, as Sieber explains, since they have to be assembled by hand. The streamlined design of the packaging is reflected in its succinct shapes, clean lines, and the broad black band that harmoniously surrounds the bright white box. The front of the package is slightly recessed for an enhanced three-dimensional effect. All cut edges, from the tab on the lid to the edges of the frame, are concealed by a double tuck-in.

When the lid is opened, the back of the box remains invisible because everything is covered and folded in. The matt coating, textural embossing and silver foil for the lettering give the multipart box a balanced, elegant look. “The complete concealment of the edges was one of the biggest technical challenges we’ve ever faced,” says Sieber. He explains that making the deep offset lie flat against the frame without buckling required immense skill and finesse. The concealed edges were, in fact, one of the manufacturer’s special requirements. In addition, the frame and offset had to be joined without glue. Sieber won’t divulge too many secrets about how the carton was made, but reveals that the tab on the frame is guided through a slot in the middle section rather like a paper fastener.

The skin care family itself is a natural product, and Sappi’s Algro Design paperboard, with its brilliant whiteness, reflects the product’s natural protective effect and purity. “The key factor in the choice of Algro Design was the bright white finish of the material,” says Siebert. “We deliberately chose not to use a textured standard material. No product available on the market offers the same whiteness and radiance as Algro Design, and we believed that would really set this packaging apart.” As mentioned earlier, Edelmann embossed the carefully designed textural lines in a separate process rather than starting with textured substrate. Algro Design from Sappi has been one of the most popular coated solid bleached boards for folding cartons since its launch about eight years ago. Many demanding consumers intui-

tively identify it as the ideal carrier for high quality, luxury packaging. Both Algro Design (coated on one side) and Algro Design Duo (coated symmetrically on both sides) are living proof of the fact that Sappi has brought its significant design and manufacturing expertise to the art of paperboard manufacturing. Algro Design impresses with its bright white surface, a very high level of UV light resistance and a silky soft surface.

The high quality of the paperboards, their look and feel, and in particular the bright white surface, highlight clearer images in the printing and ensure increased contrast, while at the same time giving the impression of more space. This has an exceptionally positive effect on the consumer’s perception because it provides a visible representation of the quality of the brand, increasing customer acceptance and providing a high level of brand recognition. Ultimately, this packaging adds to the value of the brand. In addition to its wide acceptance for premium packaging, Algro Design is also chosen by many packag-

ing manufacturers and finishers based on its printability and virtually endless finishing and processing options.

Until now, most natural skin care products are exposed in relatively simple folded cartons. Edelmann’s aim was to present an exceptional product with equally exceptional packaging. The message? A natural product should only be packaged in a natural material. The nine months it took to develop the design have more than paid for themselves: initial figures show that this is the most successful product launch in the history of Deynique.

Algro Design is available in weights of 160 - 400g/m2, Algro Design Card in 235 - 345g/m2 and Algro Design Duo in 250 380g/m2. For applications requiring extremely high rigidity there are laminated versions in 450-710 g/m².

The new KBA Rapida 164, available since the beginning of this year, also supersedes the vastly successful Rapida 162. The Rapida 164 was officially showcased as part of an open house at KBA in Radebeul on 20 and 21 June. Over 300 existing and potential users of large-format sheetfed offset presses from over 15 predominantly European countries came to the Elbe valley in Saxony to view first-hand the new standard of performance in this format class and the great advances in process automation, makeready times and productivity for increasingly shorter runs.

Equipped for the production of packaging, a plinth-mounted six-colour Rapida 164 with coater and extended delivery was the focus of live demonstrations. JĂźrgen Veil, head of sheetfed marketing, introduced the automation components and presented the print demonstrations. The new Rapida 164 redefines the benchmarks in the 120.5 x 164cm (47.4 x 64.57in) format class. Thanks to dedicated drive technology and the high level of automation, time consuming manual adjustments are no longer required at the feeder. The press runs at a maximum output of 15,000sph simply by pressing two buttons. Like the Rapida 145, the Rapida 164 is equipped with DriveTronic SIS sidelay-free infeed. Along with automatic plate changing, there is also the option of DriveTronic SPC dedicated drives at the plate cylinders that support simultaneous plate changes in all printing units in only 100 seconds. Further makeready processes, such as washing with CleanTronic Synchro, are also possible in parallel. Similar to medium-format presses, when changing plates KBA PlateIdent carries out on-press plate recognition, pre-registration and checks that the plates are correctly positioned. Even coating formes can be changed automatically while the press is printing, as can anilox roller sleeves. The high-

flow doctor-blade chamber with a reduced filling volume is also a new feature. The increased speed at which the ink flows supports faster production speeds and optimised sheet brakes for commercial and packaging printing ensure an outstanding pile formation. Further new features found in the Rapida 164 include the AirTronic delivery, energy-saving VariDryBlue drying systems and the new ErgoTronic console with integrated measuring systems.

The visitors then saw an everyday job change. The printing plates were mounted with DriveTronic SPC and after the first proof density measurements and colour register were checked. In less than four minutes the Rapida 164 produced a typical packaging job.

Blue and silver were used in the fifth and sixth printing units as special inks. The following job change was really something special. Printing units one and two plus the coater were uncoupled during plate changing and blanket washing. The ink ducts were washed and the coating was pumped out likewise in parallel. In less than three minutes the first proof of the next job could be seen. Following register and density measurements, within five minutes a fourcolour packaging job had started. While the press carried on printing at full speed, coating continued to be pumped out and anilox roller sleeves were changed in preparation for the next job. After the press was stopped, plate changes, blanket washing, coating forme changes and filling the doctor-blade chamber with new coating all took place simultaneously in under two minutes. Then the coater and printing units one and two were reconnected and after about six minutes the Rapida 164 was printing the next job. A world first in large format then rounded-off the demonstrations with the Flying JobChange between the first and sixth printing unit.

Along with the live press demonstrations, J端rgen Veil introduced the new VariDry UV dryer made and developed entirely by KBA. It is particularly energy efficient thanks to cutting-edge reflectors and less distance between lamps and substrate. Further benefits include a reduction in diffused light, UV radiation and the build-up of heat. The efficiency of UV lamps is continuously checked as UV output is measured directly on the lamp by a sensor. Lamps can be exchanged in just a few seconds by hand. Along with classic UV

dryers, KBA also offers UV inert dryers for medium- and large-format Rapidas as a speciality. These offer enhanced crosslinking as well as fewer risks in terms of migration and odour if the consumables are tailored to the conditions in the inert chamber. A short time ago in sheetfed offset it was not possible to create a stable nitrogen barrier. Reasons for this were the gripper system, the open cylinder gap and the large distance between the printing cylinder and inert chamber, plus rigid substrates coming into contact with the inert chamber. KBA has solved this problem with its new AirTronic Drum suction cylinder. Mr Veil used the example of the 19-unit Rapida 106 with inert equipment at Amcor Tobacco Packaging in Rickenbach, Switzerland when explaining the process. Along with an outstanding print and finishing quality, it also eliminates the need for additional process steps in producing highquality migration-sensitive packaging. A further presentation focused on calculating the output of a press according to OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness). Press efficiency is determined by three factors: availability, performance and quality.

Along with the official premiere of the Rapida 164, participants were treated to presentations on six other sheetfed presses from half-size to large format. The spectrum ranged

from packaging production on a Rapida 75 up to commercial production with fast job changes on a Rapida 145. Highlights included: printing cosmetic packaging on a brand-new Rapida 76 equipped with almost all automation options found in the Rapida 106, such as DriveTronic SIS and DriveTronic SPC, 4/4-colour high-speed commercial production including fast job changing on a ten-colour Rapida 106, producing commercial jobs on a six-colour Rapida 145 with coater at speeds of up to 17,000sph, printing at 20,000 sph with inline colour control according to grey balance with InstrumentFlight from System Brunner on a five-colour Rapida 106 and last but not least producing intricately finished packaging on a double-coater Rapida 106 with inline cold foil finishing (KBA ColdFoiler). In addition, for the first time KBA showcased four-back-four production on an eight-colour Rapida 105 with LED UV dryers. Overall the international sheetfed offset experts gained an insight into the high standard of printing and finishing technology inside the KBA Rapidas in all format classes. The guests enjoyed an evening steam boat river cruise on the Elbe with views of the baroque old town and the Elbe palaces nearby. Thankfully water levels have returned to normal after this year’s serious flooding affecting the region and luckily Dresden was not as badly affected as it was in 2002.

Rumors can damage a company. Facts can make a company stronger. We want to focus on the facts. Facing facts is a prerequisite for success. For a long time, ever since Gutenberg discovered movable type, print has been driving change; now it is being driven by change – financial uncertainties in the world’s economies, Internet-based media, consolidation and stagnation in the industrialized countries and growth in the emerging countries. Despite the changes, the fact is that global print production volume is stable. To be sure, journalistic print media are seriously challenged, but print is hardly “dead”. It has, however, changed radically. Our job is to understand these changes and focus on business areas and markets where we can make a sustainable profit.

Two things came together. On the one hand, the market situation became much more challenging. While the print product volume remained stable, the market for new equipment became significantly smaller. There was also a major geographical shift: Market growth moved from the established industrial countries to the emerging countries. The stagnation in the economies of the industrial countries led to widespread consolidation; here fewer printers -

were needed to print the same volume. On the other hand, we also faced internal challenges. We had to adapt the Company to fit the new market dynamics. We have changed sig-

nificantly – in the past few years we have reduced our headcount from around 20,000 to around 14,000. While doing this we repositioned ourselves geographically to take advantage of the growth in the emerging countries, especially China. Was there really a basic ›mistake‹ that we made? Instead of absorbing all our restructuring costs ourselves, we should have tried harder to pass at least some of these costs on to the market. When you look at the large scope of the changes we made, there was really no basic mistake. There was, however, the normal trial and error process, which always includes corrections as things move along.

Our end market, the worldwide volume of printed products, is relatively large, at about € 400 billion per year worldwide, and has remained stable at this level for a decade and a half. But the word “market” is misleading. It makes little sense to talk about “the” market and more sense to talk about a number of different markets. Not all markets are equally stable. And in all of the different markets there are some business areas with greater potential than others. In addition, while some areas are more

susceptible to economic downswings, others are less cyclical. Our services and consumables business is stable or growing. In contrast, the market for new equipment is more volatile. Journalistic publishing has been impacted greatly by Web-based media and changing reader habits. Circulation of many magazines and newspapers is down significantly. In some cases print versions have been discontinued; this has affected patterns for advertising inserts. Newspapers and magazines with huge print runs were usually the domain of rotary offset. Our core business is sheetfed offset printing. Under actual conditions this is the most stable technology and makes up more than a third of the total global print volume. We were not affected as directly as people in the rotary offset business. In some cases the decline could actually result in an upside for us, because reduced print runs could make our sheetfed technology and digital print solutions more attractive.

Commercial printing and packaging printing are key for us. Both commercial and packaging

printing are important businesses in all markets worldwide. Commercial printing is usually done by small to mid-size printers. It is more directly related to economic strengths and weaknesses and is more susceptible to economic shifts. In established industrial countries factors like the instability in the euro zone and stalemates concerning the US budget, for example, can have a negative impact on commercial printing. Advertising budgets are normally cyclical, and very susceptible to economic developments. On the other hand, as emerging economies grow and change, commercial printing may also develop a new potential in these regions.

Packaging is a growing and differentiated business and can involve large industrial printers. Parts of the packaging business, for example expensive packaging for luxury items in cosmetics, are more related to economic developments and consumer spending. Other parts of the packaging business, for example for daily hygiene and food and nutrition as well as for pharmaceuticals, are less dependent on economic swings. The need for multi-language printing and tamper-safe blister packaging makes the pharmaceutical industry an increasingly important target group for customers. Special effects and coatings are also becoming increasingly important as a way of promoting brands and differentiating products from competitors. In the economies of emerging countries, packaging plays a dual role. More goods and products sold within emerging countries are being sold in packages. And items produced in emerging countries for export require good packaging for shipping and ultimately for competitive marketability at their destination.

We are already competing here, and we are positioning ourselves to become more competitive.

But the real issue is not which technology is better. The customer is looking for the most efficient way to get his print job done. Depending on the print job the answer can be either digital or sheetfed – in some cases maybe even a combination of the two. The offset technology is not the economically best solution for shortest print runs. The preferred tech-

nology for print runs well under 250 copies or personalized print runs is digital printing. For longer runs, offset printing continues to offer the greatest production benefits. This is why many print shops make use of both digital and offset printing technologies. We offer customers both technologies, and with our Prinect software we offer a way to efficiently integrate them. In 2011 we began a global partnership with Ricoh, complementing our market presence and experience with their digital know-how. We more recently entered into a global strategic partnership with Landa of Rehovot, Israel, that will help us further expand our “short-run printing” capabilities. Another successful business model for the production of smallest print runs is offered by Web-to-Print providers. These printers collect many individual orders via the Internet and then print them in one large-format sheetfed offset production run.

We had a good fourth quarter as expected and we achieved an operating plus. We are making progress, but not yet profit. Next year we want to be profitable and we have taken the steps that I think will make it happen. We have made a good start, but I am fully aware that it is just a start.

I prefer to use the idea of rightsizing, not downsizing. It is not just less negative, it is also more accurate. What the right size is depends on the markets. If a market grows, rightsizing could mean upsizing. See China. But yes, this year our operating plus was based largely on cost-cutting measures. We cut costs by more than €60 million this year. Going forward we will have cost savings of more than €200 million every year. That is significant. In fact, we achieved these savings ahead of schedule. But the critical point in your question is about long-term, sustain able profit. Here my answer is clear: Cost-cutting alone is not a strategy for sustainable profit. Focus 2012 was a healthy and necessary reaction – and it was not easy. Our employees deserve a lot of credit for making the progress we have made. But sustainable profit has to be based on focusing on those business areas

where we can make a profit, not on shrinking. On strategic actions, not just reactions. I had the advantage of coming not just from outside the Company, but also from outside the industry. I had to learn about the Company and the industry, but I also could make use of experiences I had made. One of my most important goals was transparency, learning exactly how things fit together, how decisions were made and who made them. Knowing how we interact with each other and analyzing how we interact with our customers and markets was a top priority. Certain things became clear very quickly. The positive side? We have highest product quality, a justified strong reputation worldwide, a good position in emerging markets. Thanks to our efficiency program Focus 2012 we cut costs significantly and achieved a size that puts us in a good position as we move ahead. What must be improved? Our organization has to focus more on profit and align itself more quickly to market changes.

We adapted and realigned the organization within our operating segments, our socalled Business Areas, and assigned the BA managers clear and individual responsibility. Fast decisionmaking was necessary and now it’s not just possible – it’s expected. People will be held responsible when goals aren’t met. Making our processes transparent made it possible to heighten accountability. The organization is now more results-driven and the responsibility for the results is with the decision-makers. We are better geared to take advantage of non-cyclical business potentials in our service and consumables segment. In areas that are stable but not growing we are focused on improving margins and making only sales that bring a profit. I think pricing problems are more home-made than customer-driven: Price issues were largely the result of overcapacities on the manufacturers’ side. In regions that are growing – China is the best example –, we are set up to increase profits by growing sales as the market grows. China is the largest single market for printing presses worldwide. I just returned from Beijing where we participated in the industry’s most important event this year, China Print. The Chinese market is large, international and

professional. We want to further strengthen our presence there.

We have decisive critical mass, a wealth of technological competency, a large global customer base and are firmly established in all of the world’s key markets, especially in China where we have our own full-fledged production site. In comparison, we have a large base of installed machines in the business and a consumables and services business with tested global reliability that supports it. Our consumables and services segment has a strong upside; we can grow here in a basically non-cyclical business. We have expertise from the beginning to the end of the value chain – prepress, press and postpress, from consulting, equipment and software to consumables, service and logistics. But our technical knowhow is only part of the story: The other part is customer knowledge. In the end it is all about meeting customer needs better than the competition; this is where the depth of our customer knowledge is decisive. In addition, we are a pioneer in environmentally friendly printing – something that gives future-oriented customers a true competitive advantage.

proved. At Heidelberg – with Focus 2012 – Did we reach the defined goals? Yes. In recent years we reduced our headcount by about one third and made major cost cuts. At the same time we maintained our strong market presence and still invested in further developing our technologies. But we have to remember that our efficiency program basically had a dual focus. We had to rightsize to fit the changing market dynamics and we had to increase our efficiency at the same time. Our rightsizing was necessary because the market for new equipment decreased by about 40 percent. Especially in the industrialized countries, as I mentioned before, there was dramatic consolidation. The rightsizing is gradually coming to an end and we are now at the same per capita sales that we had before the crisis hit five years ago. However, we must continue to increase our efficiency: This will be an ongoing process. When cost increases are unavoidable, we will try to offset some of the cost increases by going to the market with price increases, and then work even harder to improve our processes to further improve our cost base. Even when Focus 2012 is over, we will remain focused on the same targets: We want to reduce our net debt to normal levels and achieve sustainable profitability. Once this happens we will be able to pursue some of the ideas that we cannot finance at the moment.

we have achieved the basic shape. We are working on the finishing touches. But for us, the creative process is really a re-creative process. And, of course, we are not the real artist. The real artist in the shaping process is the market, with all its regional differences and details. Our job is to mirror the market, to recreate our business to fit the shape of the different markets. We don’t shape the markets – we serve them. The better our organization fits the shape of the markets and their different needs, the greater our chances for success. We are making progress – achieving an operating plus last year is an important step. But the real sign of progress will be profit. We plan to reach that goal next year.

The negative results in the last five years have eroded shareholder trust. That is understandable – and regrettable. Our leadership team is in the process of rebuilding lost trust. The progress we are making is beginning to translate into a positive share development – up about 20 percent on a year-on-year basis. Also, the bond we issued last year recovered in the course of the year and was trading at around 99 percent at the close of the business year. Trust is slowly returning. The improved share price is a plus for our shareholders. We expect to make more progress

You are asking about the shape of the Company for the future. Shaping a company is a careful creative process, almost like when a sculptor hews a shape out of a huge piece of raw stone. First he works to create the basic shape, and then he works and reworks until he has given the stone all the minute details that will give the finished work the unmistakable character he is striving for. Finishing touches are decisive – and sometimes are never really finished.

and we expect this to show in our share price. The trust of our shareholders is important to us. In the end their trust helps make our progress possible. On our road back to profitability we consider it a crucial part of our job to make sure that Heidelberg makes good investor sense.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Printing & Packaging Machinery, Ltd. (MHI-PPM) and Ryobi Limited (Ryobi) have signed a shareholder agreement, dated June 20, 2013, on the establishment of a joint venture and implementation of business integration in the field of sheet-fed offset printing presses. The signing took place following receipt of approval by the two companies’ boards of directors.

Both MHI-PPM and Ryobi manufacture and market sheet-fed offset printing presses. Recently, however, the market situation has deteriorated owing to shrinking demand, especially in the developed countries, due to the global economic crisis. This downturn has led both companies to promote internal structural reforms in order to sustain their market competitiveness and financial soundness. As announced on January 23, 2013 in a press release titled “Announcement of Signing a Letter of Intent for Business Alliance on Commercial Printing Machinery”, MHI-PPM and Ryobi agreed to study establishing a business alliance in the field of sheet-fed offset printing presses specifically targeted at improving

The commercial printing industry presently anticipates demand for printing machinery to strengthen in the emerging economies. Simultaneously demand for higher specification products is expected to grow further within the mature economies. In creating their new joint venture, MHI-PPM and Ryobi seek to prevail against intensifying global competition and build a stronger presence in the global market. They also aim for the new entity to develop into a leading global company in the printing press industry by meeting customer expectations and providing innovative, high-quality products and outstanding services to the market.

Commencement of operations January 1, 2014 (“RM Limited” will be set up on July 31, 2013 as a preparatory company. The company name will be changed to “RYOBI MHI Graphic Technology Ltd.” and operations will commence on January 1, 2014.)

Julia John

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who was given an empty Chanel N°5 bottle to play with when she was in kindergarten. Vestiges of the legendary scent remained in the bottle, and the scent has enchanted her ever since. Today Julia John has become a perfumer in her own right, recently launching animi, the first perfume under her own brand. What is so astounding about this story is that Julia has succeeded in turning her scent into a marketable product as an outsider to the perfume industry all on her own initiative, without the support of a large cosmetics company and its marketing machine.

However, without good old coincidences in life, the idea probably would have remained simply an idea. It so happened that Julia got to know a Sappi employee on a journey to Norway and told him about her dream to go for broke and launch her own perfume into the marketplace. “As I heard this tale, I found the idea was so exciting and touching that we wanted to support the development of the packaging for the product,” reflects Lars Scheidweiler, Business Manager SBB Cartonboard at Sappi in Alfeld. Torsten Riedel, Manager at Achilles Papierveredelung Celle GmbH, who Sappi brought on board as the finishing company for the project, added: “The Julia John story was just so crazy that we simply couldn’t say no.” Sappi provided Algro Design® Duo for the high quality solid bleached board for the perfume bottle packaging as well as for the sample vial card, and Achilles contributed

Torsten Riedel Thirty-year-old Julia John grew up in Stuttgart and studied business and information/ communications technology. She currently works as an executive assistant at a Stuttgart charity organization. She started her career as a perfumer in 2009 when she began learning the closely-guarded secrets of the perfumer’s trade in Grasse, Southern France. “The creation of my first fragrance was like creating a symphony. It opened up a whole new world of scent to me,” Julia enthuses. Seeking a name that was unmistakable and original, she called her perfume animi after the Latin for soul and spirit. The scent, produced in France, was previously only available for purchase via her website, but is now marketed in selected perfumeries and boutiques in her home town of Stuttgart. Soon it will also be available in London and Dubai. animi is available in two variations: the exclusive perfume and the slightly lighter eau de parfum. The glass bottle has a minimalist shape, and the closure is based on a crown design. The bottle comes with a simple label versus a direct glass print. In the packaging design, Julia envisioned a unique look which makes her perfumes stand out with its elegant design. The luxury boxes for both perfume types are similar, yet each has its own distinctive look. The eau de parfum comes in white packaging, and the perfume packaging is in black. The sample vial card design is also black with a subtle background image. The interplay between black and white symbolizes the elegance of the perfume for Julia John, completing the circle and extending her concept across the entire range of packaging.

Algro Design from Sappi, chosen for the manufacture of the perfume packaging and vial cards, has been one of the most popular coated paperboards since its launch about eight years ago. Many demanding consumers intuitively identify it as the ideal carrier for high quality, premium and luxury packaging. Both Algro Design (coated on one side) and Algro Design Duo (coated symmetrically on both sides) are living proof of the fact that Sappi has brought its significant design and manufacturing expertise to the art of coated cartonboard manufacturing. Algro Design impresses with its bright white surface, a very high level of UV light resistance and a silky

soft surface. The high quality of the paperboards, their look and feel, and in particular the bright white coating, highlight clearer images in the printing and ensure increased contrast, while at the same time giving the impression of more space. This has an exceptionally positive effect on the consumer’s perception because it provides a visible representation of the quality of the brand, increasing customer acceptance and providing a high level of brand recognition. Ultimately, this packaging adds to the value of the brand. In addition to its wide acceptance for premium packaging, Algro Design is also the first choice for many packaging manufacturers and finishers based on its printability and virtually endless finishing and converting options. “For downstream processing, high quality Algro Design carton substrates are a blessing. Every conceivable finishing technique, from punching and masking, to foil stamping, sculptured embossing, and special printing effects, can be realized in an optimum manner,”

From Julia’s perspective, the packaging is the eye-catcher attracting potential purchasers, & providing the all-important first impression: “The right corporate design is the only way to deliver the message for a positive perception,” she says. “With animi, I combined an outstanding scent with the best ingredients from the world of marketing.”

reports Riedel. These superior characteristics clearly made Algro Design the best choice for the animi packaging.

Achilles used its extensive expertise in packaging finishing to manufacture the perfume packaging and vial cards. Its longstanding Celle operation – founded by Werner Achilles in 1946 and managed by his son-inlaw Paul Drews since 1991 – has consistently been recognized as Germany’s market leader in paper finishing and unique corporate presentation products over the past six decades. The Achilles Group offers more than 30 different finishing techniques. The mid-sized company with about 560 employees has two main plants in Celle, 13 sites across Germany,

as well as branch offices in the Czech Republic and Poland. Today, Thorsten Drews, Managing Director since 2005, is the third generation continuing the family company’s success. About 30 samples, incorporating a wide variety of embellishment techniques, were evaluated by Julia on-site at Achilles, and the great choice of options didn’t make her decision easy. Riedel’s team developed and presented a number of variations on complex individual theme. This demonstrated the varied finishing options while providing a feel for the possible finishing styles for the animi project. From the many stunning suggestions, Julia decided in favor of a stripped-down, elegant version of the packaging which she believed would make it stand apart. Achilles developed and completed the finishing for a vial card and four different packages for 30 and 50 milliliter bottles of perfume (in black) and eau de parfum (in white).

To create the perfume box, the Algro Design cartonboard was printed in black, with knock-out animi brand name lettering, showing off the original high white Algro Design surface design. A scratch-proof protective Achilles special matt brand film was then applied and the lettering was finished in white UV gloss screen printing to emphasize the matt surface and underscore the high quality of the product. Julia saw the black matt laminated perfume packaging as a particularly distinguishing feature on the shop shelf: “There are virtually no matt black perfume cartons for women on the market,” she points out, “so this really enhanced the uniqueness of my perfume”. For the white eau de parfum box, Algro Design in its original white form was printed with black lettering. Once again, the matt film from Achilles was applied. The lettering and the animi logo were emphasized with black gloss print. The reverse side of the carton for the inside of

the box was also printed in black. Finally, the vial card featured white knock-out lettering on a black card. This is clear and easy to read thanks to the high brilliance of Algro Design.

animi is a classic, heavy perfume with a warm and long-lasting scent. The base scent is an intense, honey-like, sweet aroma with fruity and smoky undertones combining sensuality and femininity. The natural fragrances used by Julia John include cinnamon bark, vanilla, tonka beans, petals and fruit aromas. This likeable newcomer to the perfume industry is a successful amalgamation of content, bottle and packaging that makes the product a real contender and gives it unmistakable brand identity. With professional packaging, Julia John, Achilles and Sappi have together created a compelling marketing tool. It will be fascinating to see how animi does in the marketplace – and then it may well be time to start realizing the next dream.

Algro Design is available in weights of 160 - 400g/m2, Algro Design Card in 235 - 345g/m2 and Algro Design Duo in 250 - 380g/m2. For applications requiring extremely high rigidity there are laminated versions in 450-710 g/m². The following features are provided by high quality coated paperboard Algro Design from Sappi: - maximum quality consistency for all printing, finishing, processing and packaging types - high elasticity and optimum shaping properties for creative packaging designs - outstanding embossing properties - sharper, high-contrast image rendition in print - exceptional sensory properties - certified for direct contact with sensitive goods (taste and odor neutral)

FINAT, the international association for the self-adhesive label industry, is calling for papers for its 2014 Technical Seminar. The organization’s last three seminars proved a major success, attracting around 200 delegates each time. Next year’s event runs from March 5 - 7, and will again be staged at the Fira Palace Hotel in Barcelona, Spain. FINAT President, Kurt Walker, comments: “The self-adhesive label industry is constantly evolving, and self-adhesive materials remain the most versatile option for product decoration. “At the 2014 FINAT Technical Seminar we’ll be exploring the theme, ‘Redesigning the label’. This will include reviewing the current technology and market for self-adhesive labels, as well as the latest trends regarding raw materials, label construction, printing, converting and applications for self-adhesive labels.” The one-and-a-half day seminar is aimed at all levels of the technical community, from research and development to production to technical directors and executives. Attendees will be updated on a broad range of issues, such as legislation, materials science, converting technology and end applications for labels. Presentations will be delivered by industry experts, who will offer practical advice to help delegates make their own infrastructures more efficient, productive and profitable.

The FINAT Technical Committee is inviting the self-adhesive industry to submit papers for the 2014 Technical Seminar. This is a great opportunity for companies to share their insight on the industry, and discuss the latest developments in self-adhesive technology that they believe will re-design the label of the future. FINAT is looking for papers covering the entire supply chain: - pre-press operations - raw materials / substrates - coating - label manufacturing - printing - converting - label design and use The FINAT Technical Committee will consider papers from companies operating at all points in the value chain. However, priority will be given to the most interesting propositions regarding label enduse and converting innovations. The papers should not focus on promoting individual companies, but contain real scientific content that appeals to an audience from a predominantly technical background. The submit proposals / papers should send to info@finat.com untill August 1. with the title of the paper, and a short abstract (400-500 words).

It’s a deal! The handshake between Scholma Druk and the manroland Sheetfed team

Scholma Druk B.V are one of the biggest commercial printers in the northern part of the Netherlands, producing magazines, catalogues, brochures, leaflets and books etc. They decided that to respond to overcapacity in the market they had to reduce production costs and waste and make-ready times. They chose a five-colour Roland 700 DirectDrive with coating and InlineColorPilot to achieve that goal. “After careful consideration and comparison, we chose the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive based on its three exclusive features and advantages- efficiency, print quality and flexibility,” says Martin Scholma, the company’s director-owner.

The efficiency mentioned by him refers to the multi-tasking and shortest make-ready time of the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive. Platechanging that previously had to be done successively can now take place simultaneously in all the printing units. In addition, the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive can reduce make-ready time by up to 60% compared with a conventional sheetfed offset press. The ROLAND 700 DirectDrive is equipped with the InlineColorPilot, the fastest system in the market, that measures the printed sheets inside the press and automatically regulates the inking units. It is a non-stop process without the need to continuously pull sheets.This saves time and waste sheets, improves color stability, and offers complete documentation of the production run.

The philosopher Dr. des. David Hommen from Viersen has received the drupa Prize 2013 for his dissertation “Mentale Verursachung, innere Erfahrung und handelnde Personen. Eine Verteidigung des Epiphänomenalismus” (Mental Causation, Inner Experience and Acting Individuals. In Support of Epiphenomenalism). The Award was presented by Claus Bolza Schünemann (Chairman of the Board at Koenig & Bauer AG and President of drupa 2016), Werner M. Dornscheidt (President & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf) and Prof Dr Dr H. Michael Piper (Principal of Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf) as part of a celebratory event at the “Industrieclub Düsseldorf” on 3 June.

In his award-winning doctoral thesis Hommen deals with epiphenomenalism. According to this theory, in the philosophy of the mind mental phenomena are caused by physical processes but cannot drive the physical mechanics of the brain. In simple terms, epiphenomenalism describes the following: the mind, which is a “waste product” of the brain, so to speak, produces no effects on physical activities. Following the argument of epiphenomenalism there are no understandable or reasonable reasons for human actions. In his dissertation the 33-year old Hommen has addressed an “outlier” topic in philosophy. In the German-speaking region the supporters of epiphenomenalism can almost be counted on the fingers of one hand; on a global scale there are only several dozens of philosophers openly admitting to epiphenomenalism. It was the controversial nature of this – anything but mainstream theme – that especially fascinated David Hommen and motivated him to defend epiphenomenalism. Towards the end of his studies he had already dealt with the philosophy of the mind, effortlessly moving between such sciences as psychology, philosophy and neurology and ethical and moral philosophies. With this approach he precisely hones in with the USP of philosophy because it also differs from all other sciences since it does not limit itself to a specific area or a determined methodology. It rather distinguishes itself from other sciences by the manner of asking questions and the special way of approaching its varied subject areas. The Faculty Board therefore referred to the work, awarded with “summa cum laude”, as an “impressive document for aspirational philosophy”. 121

Print shops using the 7B format (121 x 162 centimeters / 47.64 x 63.78 inches) are currently facing the same challenges as suppliers of smaller sheet formats. They need to boost productivity without compromising on quality or surface finishing. Print buyers expect the shortest of delivery times, and to remain competitive in this environment while also standing out from the rest of the market, print shops need the latest generation of equipment. Consequently, the trend in packaging printing in the 7B format, too, is toward seven-color presses for more spot colors – often cyan, magenta, and yellow plus three to four 125

was previously considered impossible in large-format applications. spot colors. Coating demands are also growing, with print shops endeavoring to attract attention at the point of sale with matt-gloss effects (primer UV) and by combining different surface textures. As a result, dual-coating presses have seen a resurgence in popularity.

A further Speedmaster – an XL 145 with seven printing units and dual-coating technology – started operating at the same time at packaging company Ival in Mantua. Ival’s product portfolio includes food packaging for the well-known pasta maker Barilla.

The Speedmaster XL 162 from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) offers the ideal solutions for all these requirements. This machine was unveiled at drupa 2008, and more new presses of this model are now being installed in the 7B format than any other.

Another two virtually identical Speedmaster XL 162 seven-color presses with dualcoating technology have started production in the United States in recent months. Since run lengths in the United States far exceed the European average, the high printing speed of the Speedmaster XL 162 was a vital factor here. Thanks to its sturdy design and quiet operation, the maximum production speed of 15,000 sheets per hour can be achieved without any mechanical restrictions, even on presses with eleven printing units.

-

-

Such is the level of interest in packaging solutions from Heidelberg that both of the company’s regular annual Packaging Days at its Wiesloch-Walldorf site were fully subscribed with 150 visitors and a further event with over 100 participants took place midway through June 2013.

In Italy, not one but two well-known folding carton manufacturers have taken dualcoating presses into service – one a Speedmaster XL 162 and the other a Speedmaster XL 145. One of these companies is Imballi in Castelfranco Veneto, which decided on a Speedmaster XL 162-6+LYYL following intensive application tests in which the Speedmaster XL 162 came out head and shoulders above the competition, especially in terms of inline surface finishing with primer UV applications. Imballi currently uses three largeformat presses from other manufacturers. The Speedmaster XL 162 is intended for both displays and folding carton jobs.

Following the successful start made by its Speedmaster XL 162-7+LYYL, one of the two companies has already decided on its next large-format press from Heidelberg – a Speedmaster XL 145-7+L UV.

Smurfit Kappa Zedek, Netherlands A further Speedmaster XL 162 user is Dutch company Smurfit Kappa Zedek in Deventer. It is one of the world’s leading suppliers of paper-based packaging, with around 38,000 employees in over 31 countries and sales of over EUR 7 billion in 2011. Since 2008, Smurfit Kappa Zedek has been realigning its strategic focus and concentrating increasingly on high-quality corrugated board packaging and the growth potential of display stands. Since the end of last year, the company has

been operating a Speedmaster XL 162 sixcolor press with coating unit.

French display specialist SB Plus in Paris has already decided to purchase its second Speedmaster XL 162. The company’s product portfolio includes sophisticated displays for prestigious luxury brands such as L’Oreal, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, and Shiseido. In December 2009, it installed France’s first large-format Heidelberg press – a Speedmaster XL 162-5+L – and this has been setting new standards in terms of makeready times and quality ever since. The new Speedmaster XL 162-4 is also equipped with Prinect Inpress Control, which offers key benefits such as fast job changes for short-run display jobs.

Like SB Plus, French print shop Kapp Graphic in Evreux, Normandy, also decided on a Speedmaster XL 162-4. Kapp Graphic specializes in the production of illustrated books and point-of-sale advertising. The company’s Managing Director Christian Devambez visited several Speedmaster users throughout Europe before reaching his decision and was impressed with the high performance of XL technology in terms of reliability, productivity, and print quality.

Turkey’s first Speedmaster XL 162 went to the Sentez Packaging Group in Istanbul. The elevated Speedmaster XL 162-6+L with pallet logistics was installed in spring 2013. This investment decision was made following comprehensive printing tests. The Speedmaster XL 162 was put through its paces and subsequently selected as the best solution on the market thanks to its stability, speed, and setup times. Founded in 1992, Sentez primarily produces high-quality folding cartons for the pharmaceutical industry and kitchenware manufacturers.

Cartograf, one of Mexico’s leading packaging printers, has taken its first Speedmaster XL 162-7+L into service. This is part of an investment project comprising four presses with a total of 35 printing units. Cartograf produces high-quality folding cartons for the tobacco, food, and consumer goods industries and will be using the Speedmaster XL 162 to produce items such as beer carriers and other beer packaging.

Online print shop Saxoprint in Dresden took delivery of its second Speedmaster XL 162-8P at the beginning of 2013. The eightcolor perfector works alongside another identical press and an additional Speedmaster XL 145 four-color machine. Saxoprint GmbH has been operating its online platform saxoprint. de since 2006 and, as of January 2012, has been part of CEWE COLOR, Europe’s leading photographic service provider. The Speedmaster XL 162 is able to deliver the short makeready times and minimal waste needed to meet the high levels of efficiency and productivity required for web-based online printing. These factors are all the more important since runs as short as only 250 copies in this segment are unusually low for large-format offset printing. The makeready times achieved with the Speedmaster XL 162-8P at Saxoprint are, in absolute terms, little higher than for a straight-printing press. Eight to twelve minutes are needed for plate changes, washup, and setup. Heidelberg was the first company in the world to offer motorized paper stretch

Two packaging printers in Indonesia invested in the Speedmaster XL 162 within a few months of each other. SKL near Jakarta took Indonesia’s first Speedmaster XL 1626+L into service midway through 2012. With non-stop systems on feeder and delivery, fully automatic pallet logistics, and Prinect Inpress Control, this press benefits from a level of automation that is relatively rare in Asia outside of Japan. SKL produces packaging for international sports and clothing brands. Shortly after this company, a second packaging printer in Jakarta – IKS Indah Kiath – decided on a virtually identical Speedmaster XL 162. This press is currently being installed and will start production shortly.

In France, one of Europe’s leading publishing printers Pollina also decided on a Speedmaster XL 162-8P. This is the first Heidelberg press the family company from Luçon near Nantes has purchased.

In addition The technology of the Speedmaster XL 162 is also convincing an increasing number of publishing and commercial printers to switch to this Peak Performance press from Heidelberg. The perfecting technology of the Speedmaster XL 162-8P delivers print quality that was previously considered impossible in largeformat applications. Makeready times are also far shorter than those of earlier large-format generations. Two companies took presses in this series into service in spring 2013.

to increasing the printable area and cutting paper costs, the double gripper technology in the delivery combined with remote fan-out control from the control station more than halves setup times for complex forms compared with standard presses on the market. Pollina currently operates eight large-format presses from a competitor and intends to use the Speedmaster XL 162-8P to offer books in extremely short runs (“book-on-demand”).
