New Heidelberg Speedmaster and Easymatrix installed at U.S. facility
McCarty Printing, a privately held U.S. corporation, is expanding capacity with its new Speedmaster CX 75-5+L with UV from Heidelberg. The new press, alongside its new Heidelberg Easymatrix 106 CS, is supporting expansion into the packaging market. Replacing an older Heidelberg, the new Speedmaster gives McCarty Printing the ability to market new applications to customers and increase volume. “When comparing this press to our last press, it’s a huge upgrade,” said Brandon Sieber, President of McCarty Printing. “We see our speed and efficiency growing by leaps and bounds with the new equipment.”
The Speedmaster CX 75 closes the gap between the Speedmaster SX 74 and XL 75 by offering high flexibility and efficiency without the expense of a large number of added features. Printing at speeds up to 15,000 sheets an hour, the new press can process substrates ranging from lightweight paper to corrugated because of the double-diameter impression cylinders. The press features a compact design and is the narrowest offered by Heidelberg in the half size market.
The Easymatrix 106 CS was installed in April 2018 and replaces an older diecutter to better serve the packaging market. Processing boards as thick as 78 pt and up to 29.4” x 41.7” format at speeds up to 7,700 sheets per hour, the Easymatrix increased McCarty Printing’s diecutting production output significantly.
