Perfection that Extends to the Pile. The Preset Plus Delivery Creates Ideal Conditions for Finishing.

Perfect piles for perfect finishing ­ the Preset Plus Delivery.

18

Tidy and neatly aligned ­ the perfect pile. The Preset Plus Delivery helps you achieve highly accurate pile formation quickly and cost-effectively. Venturi nozzle technology throughout the delivery area and aerodynamic gripper bars make for perfect paper travel. The presettable, dynamic sheet brake decelerates sheets in a controlled manner. To do this, the brake modules are accelerated to close on production speed each time a sheet travels through them. As soon as the brake has a secure hold on the sheet, the speed is reduced to the preset delivery speed. The presettable delivery air system uses a stream of air that can be precisely calibrated to ensure that the pile is formed with the neatly aligned edges essential for optimum finishing. Fast and straightforward thanks to automatic settings. When you input the sheet format and grammage, the delivery format and air settings are automatically preset. This function significantly reduces your makeready times. Additional adjustments are made centrally on the Prinect Press Center or by using the touchscreen and jogwheel on the easy-to-use delivery control panel. This streamlines processes and provides direct access during production, thereby saving you valuable time.

Minimum powder consumption and soiling. The PowderStar® AP 500 Duo from Heidelberg is a unique powder spray device for perfecting printing. Powder is applied from above via three powder spray tubes with a total of 24 nozzles and from below by an additional powder bar in the sheet guide plate. This produces a very even coating on the sheet. Because it operates at a higher application pressure than conventional systems, less powder is deflected from the sheet. Powder is applied more efficiently and you therefore need less. In addition, far less cleaning is required. The CleanStar® process air cleaning system collects any stray powder and extracts it via four suction points positioned around the delivery pile. An automatic self-cleaning facility in the delivery air system and additional brushes for cleaning the gripper bars and chains make CleanStar even more efficient. The Preset Plus Delivery at a glance: · Dynamic sheet brake and delivery air system for optimum, mark-free quality all the way to the pile · Transfer of all preset values from the Prinect Press Center to the delivery · Automatic positioning of all sheet guidance elements · Fine adjustment easily performed using the jogwheel on the delivery control panel · Unique PowderStar AP 500 Duo powder spray device for efficient, double-sided powder application · CleanStar process air cleaning system for minimizing the accumulation of dust and unpleasant odors at the press

Prinected. Prinect Integration Changes Your Processes ­ and Delivers Lasting Quality and Cost Efficiency Gains.

Get Prinected. Prinect is the printshop workflow and your path to integrated print production. Prinect brings together production and management processes in a single workflow. Get Prinected ­ for optimized processes and greater cost efficiency in your printshop. Active management of the printing process based on stored data. The aim of every printshop is to produce print products rapidly, cost-effectively and to the highest quality standards. Cost-effective print production begins when a job is accepted and costed and continues through the prepress and press stages to finishing and invoicing. The only way you can make decisions based on sound data and actively manage processes is if you have up-to-the-minute information on how each job is progressing. Print jobs can then be implemented within the tightest of timeframes and you can keep a handle on quality and costs even when unscheduled changes need to be made.

End-to-end transparency accelerates decision making. Prinect, the printshop workflow, is based on the universal data format JDF. This renders each individual process transparent, thereby enabling end-to-end management of the printshop. Everybody involved in the process uses a single stock of data, the central JDF document, which incorporates all relevant information in a digital job folder. Prinect is made up of various software and hardware modules that can be combined according to your requirements. The level of integration in your printshop is determined solely by your needs, but can be altered or expanded at any time. Other makes of system can also be integrated. Ultimate automation and direct control. Prinect can do even more though. It automates processes that have previously been executed manually, making them far faster and less prone to errors. This frees you up from routine tasks while enabling you to stay in full control at all times, so that you can intervene and make adjustments if necessary. Heidelberg is therefore the only manufacturer to offer a printshop workflow that integrates and manages the entire print production process ­ Prinect.

20

Get Prinected. The Prinect Press Center control station integrates the press into the Prinect workflow. Prinected. Prepress ink presettings reduce makeready times and waste. Short makeready times are essential to cost-efficient production in the modern printshop. This is also where Prinect integration can have a major impact. Prinect links the pressroom to prepress operations, thereby providing direct access to ink presetting data from the prepress stage at the press itself, where it can be used to automatically adjust ink zones. There is no faster way to ink up ­ even the first pull brings you close to the OK sheet. What's more, the Prinect Press Center also generates a job preview, which enables you to easily identify and select the right job. A further benefit of the Prinect Press Center is that it allows you to load and prepare the next job in line while production of the previous job is still underway. Your press productivity will be dramatically increased. Prinected. Consistent color quality and proof and print results that match. In order to satisfy both quality requirements and commercial concerns equally, it is important to standardize the printing process. This ensures that the desired quality can be achieved at all times. That is why Prinect includes calibration, profiling and quality control tools that make sure your proof and your print result match,

that the Speedmaster SM 102 inks up fast, and that the press delivers consistent production quality. A unique closed loop between prepress and press makes sure the current job always keeps on track. For example, if a new batch of ink causes the dot gain to change, the color measuring system will register this and transmit it direct to prepress so that characteristic curves and profiles can be adjusted accordingly. The next set of printing plates are immediately adapted to the new production conditions and all color-related production parameters are also available for repeat jobs and for profile adjustment in the creation of proofs. Thanks to Prinect, proof, plate and printing are integrated for the first time into an endto-end color control process. Prinected. Cost transparency makes management and costing easier. The Prinect Press Center of the Speedmaster SM 102 integrates the press directly into Prinect business management processes. Current production data is recorded centrally and made available in real time for costing, planning and other commercial processes. This means you can identify the exact stage that a job has reached at any one time, which is crucial when you need to quickly ascertain the workload involved in making changes. In other words, you no longer need to spend vast amounts of time looking into a job and making a whole series of inquiries. Prinect takes care of everything and can analyze and present each job quickly and concisely.

Advantages for your printing process:

· Makeready times: Presetting your press using prepress data helps cut your makeready time dramatically. · Productivity: Shorter makeready times and minimum waste boost your productivity. · Quality: Optimized and standardized processes enable you to achieve maximum and stable quality standards. · Integration: The ultimate data management solution delivers benefits throughout the entire workflow.

The perfect accompaniment to a Speedmaster SM 102 ­ the CutStar sheeter.

CutStar ­ the advantages of web technology in sheetfed offset. The CutStar sheeter with CAN connection combines the cost benefits of web offset with the versatility of sheetfed offset. The CutStar can cut your costs significantly, not least because reel stock is far cheaper than sheeted paper. Depending on the market, the difference in cost can be up to 15 percent. Special printing stocks such as foils and aluminized papers can often bring even greater savings. The web is cut in line with the press's operating cycle and automatically adjusts to the press speed. The cut-off length can be adjusted steplessly between 40 cm and 72 cm (15.75 in and 28.35 in). The variable cutoff capability is a big advantage over standardized sheet stock. As the cutoff length can be varied as required, only the minimum format required for the job is cut from the reel stock. As shingling is performed directly in CutStar, printing stock feed is extremely reliable and constant. This increases the efficiency of the Speedmaster, particularly when working with critical papers and special printing stocks. The CutStar is not limited to processing reel stock. Its flexible design also allows you to process sheeted paper. This is done by moving the cutting and shingling unit laterally towards the drive side using a motor. The makes it possible to change over from web to sheetfed and back again in just a few minutes.

The right Star for the printing unit. The ultra-efficient InkStar® ink supply system is the ideal solution for automatically filling the ink fountains of the Speedmaster SM 102. In contrast to conventional ink cans, the 2 kg (4.41 lb) ink cartridges are emptied completely using compressed air. As a result, there is virtually no residual ink left in spent cartridges and ink consumption is reduced significantly.
