After installing a Speedmaster XL 75 Anicolor press in May, Jakprints Inc., based in Cleveland, went from two presses to one with a 30 percent increase in production capacity and anticipated savings of up to one million sheets this year alone.
The company, which caters to a diverse artistic community as well as to big business, had no desire to invest in a traditional litho press when it went shopping to replace an existing sheetfed offset machine earlier this year. The company already had two aging offset presses from another manufacturer.
That was before company principals got a look at the Speedmaster XL 75 Anicolor at Heidelberg’s Technology Center in Kennesaw, Georgia, and realized how the new press could help Jakprints lock in a serious competitive advantage based on quality, versatility, pricing and the ecological ethos it shares with clients.
Company representatives brought 12 jobs representing a typical eight-hour shift to their demonstration in Kennesaw. Using the XL 75 Anicolor press, the work was completed in less than an hour-and-a-half, each with between 20 and 30 sheets of makeready waste. For Jakprints, the potential to reduce 6,500 sheets of waste per day on makeready alone, while simultaneously adding six hours per day of production capacity, was too compelling to pass up. Ultimately, the company chose a five-color, carbon-neutral-rated model with coater and extended delivery.
