HEIDELBERG has delivered the two longest sheetfed offset presses it has ever produced to WestRock.
The longest, delivered to WestRock’s Tczew, Poland facility, is a 42 metre, specially adapted custom configuration of a Speedmaster XL 106 with a total of 20 printing and coating units.
This record-breaking press represents a key Heidelberg business strategy. “We help our customers simplify their printing processes and boost their productivity by offering them a high level of automation and flexibility, something that is especially important at a time when the skills shortage is becoming more acute worldwide,” says Ludwin Monz, CEO.
In addition, Heidelberg is supplying a further Speedmaster XL 106 with a total of 19 printing and coating units to a WestRock site in Obersulm, Germany – the second longest in the world.
The record-breaking presses supplied to WestRock can print particularly high-quality and eye-catching packaging. With its large number of printing and coating units, the highly flexible long Speedmaster XL 106 configuration is suitable for handling a wide range of packaging applications with striking coating and metallic effects as well as sustainable products – completely inline, double-sided, and in a single pass.
