Malnove Purchases Speedmaster

Malnove Packaging recently invested in its first Heidelberg press, purchasing a Speedmaster XL 145-7+L very large format press. It is fully equipped with a long list of options and innovations including the latest “Push-to-Stop” technology, which can provide autonomous job changeover without operator intervention —reducing makeready time and increasing uptime and productivity.

The new press will be installed in Malnove’s Utah facility to better service customers on the West Coast. With the company’s increasing growth, Malnove began the search for a new large format press to handle the additional volume.  “After extensive research and reviewing each manufacturer carefully, we felt that the Heidelberg XL 145 had a competitive advantage with reduced makeready time and speed to production,” said Eric Malnove, Executive Vice President. “Heidelberg’s Speedmaster XL 145 has the most modern, large format platform available with the technology our company needs to be competitive.”

The investment includes options such as Inpress Control 2 inline spectrophotometer that achieves both color and register on the fly, inspection of each printed sheet (assuring quality products are delivered to Malnove’s customers), as well as fully integrated UV technology. “With the new XL 145, the UV capabilities will expand our market and meet our customers’ growing demands for high quality products,” said Dale Houck, President of Malnove Inc.
