Speedmaster is already printing

Wyszków, 28 Sempteber 2017 - We have successfully completed the process of installing the new Heidelberg Speedmaster VLF XL 162-5+LX3 UV (LE) machine. It is the first sheet-fed press working in UV technology in Quad/Graphics Europe. Its distinctive feature is the instant setting of paint and the inline UV coating option.

Printing in UV technology has many advantages – above all, it shortens the buffers between printing and further production processes as a result of the instant setting of paint.

“A UV-enabled machine therefore allows us to offer products delivered using materials other than paper or cardboard in a much shorter timeline, which is crucial for our In-Store Solutions customers”, explained Andrzej Herbich, Technical Director at QGE.

A great advantage offered by UV technology as opposed to conventional offset printing is the possibility of printing on non-absorbent materials, for example synthetic, metallic or carbon paper, or PCV, PP, PS and foil.

“Customers contact us with ever more demanding ideas, and competitiveness on the POS market requires creativeness, which in turn necessitates product distinction. Printing on non-absorbent materials, like the possibility of in-line varnishing, extends our offer significantly”, said Beata Ogłaza, In-Store Solutions Sales Director.

The machine also makes it possible to use various inline varnishes – offset and UV varnish, selectively or as a whole. This enables us to obtain an drip-off effect (hybrid effect), which can be used as non-standard refinement of packaging, stands, and magazine or catalogue covers.

The new machine is a strategic Investment which serves the development of the In-Store Solutions area. Expanding the offer by new materials and also refinement enables us to meet market trends and fulfil our customers’ expectations.
