Beamglow stays ahead of the curve with new Speedmaster XL106

UK-based Beamglow has invested in state-of-the-art technology by Heidelberg, with the installation of a new XL106-7+LYY-1+L Heidelberg press that is already in full production.

The company’s decision to replace an older seven colour double coat litho press is part of a well thought business strategy. Beamglow’s strategy focuses on efficiency, flexibility and on maintaining the highest possible standards of quality and sustainability for their customers.

This latest investment in Heidelberg technology marks a significant moment in the evolution of the business, which is recognised as one of the industry’s foremost carton manufacturers.

“This decision to replace the older seven colour double coat litho press is part of our rolling machinery replacement policy. We are using this opportunity to take advantage of market leading developments and technology, and gain flexibility, efficiency, quality, and consistency,” says James Griffin, Projects Director, Beamglow. “Heidelberg has a long pedigree in press manufacture, compounded by both ongoing development and technical support. We expect to see an overall gain throughout the process, from raw material to finished product. We have taken a holistic approach including makeready times, sheets on the floor, downtime, and quality. This would impact on further processes. Our customers will benefit from the investment in a very highly spec’d packaging press, to maintain Beamglow’s reputation at the forefront of the industry.”

Matt Rockley, Product Executive Sheetfed & Digital, Heidelberg UK, says, “We are proud that Beamglow has chosen the new Heidelberg Printing Press XL106-7+LYY-1+L. The overall output and efficiency have improved significantly, thanks to the intelligent automation and technology offered by the XL106. A whole range of ecological components are ensuring that the Speedmaster XL 106 minimises energy consumption, emissions, paper waste and other waste – while maximising productivity.”
