Vale Press will be the first UK company to take delivery of a new Speedmaster CX 75 LE-UV B2 press that Heidelberg UK is showing at its open house on 21 and 22 February 2018.
Heidelberg has undertaken its first ISO 12647-2 colour certification on an LE-UV press. The Speedmaster XL 106-5+L LE-UV press at Superior in Melksham has passed the ISO specification with ease.
“This is exactly the machine we needed for our applications,” confirm Zhengguo Lai and Yuanbao Lai, co-founders of Yuhua Playing Cards Co. Ltd. in Guangzhou, China. In May of this year both went to China Print in Peking, where Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) presented the new Speedmaster CX 75 for the first time. Even though Yuhua Playing Cards had not had a single printing press up to that point, Zhengguo Lai and Yuanbao Lai immediately recognized the potential of this all-rounder and placed an order for one while at the trade fair, like quite a few other customers also. What impressed them was the machine’s high print quality, broad range of applications, and good price-performance ratio.
