More sustainability in the printing process – HEIDELBERG tu…

Back in 1997, the Kyoto Protocol stipulated that, by 2020, industrial processes should  be at least 20 percent more efficient than they were in 1990. Today, due to the general trend for more sustainability across the whole of society, ambitious climate protection targets, and the present energy crisis, there is growing pressure on the print media industry to make the entire production process even more energy-efficient – and to do so quickly.  Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (HEIDELBERG) has therefore launched a campaign for print shops featuring information, advice, and tips from experts on how to considerably increase energy efficiency in printing companies while simultaneously driving down costs. The company will be focusing on several headline issues in its communications over the next few months. “The subject of sustainability and energy efficiency has become a crucial competitive and cost factor for suppliers in the print media industry – and that applies equally to our customers and to HEIDELBERG itself,” says Dr. Ludwin Monz, CEO of HEIDELBERG. “Alongside its customers, HEIDELBERG aims to extend its leading 2/4 role in the industry to include energy efficiency as well. Due to our technological and data expertise, we are able to offer our customers attractive options for achieving energy-efficient production and can provide comprehensive advice and consulting. We all need to work on these issues if we are to hit climate protection targets.”Speedmaster XL 106 – energy efficiency as standardTo launch the campaign, HEIDELBERG is showcasing the energy efficiency of the Speedmaster XL 106. For example, a comparison between the Speedmaster CD 102- 6+L from 1990 and the current Speedmaster XL 106-6+L reveals that energy consumption per 1,000 sheets has been reduced from 13.8 kWh to 8 kWh – a  reduction of 40 percent. A whole range of innovations and improvements throughout the entire system is responsible for this achievement. Besides investing in cutting-edge equipment, print shops can also further boost their energy efficiency by optimizing the way they use their equipment. This is where one principle in particular comes into play – one that highlights a key difference between printing presses and automobiles, for instance, which consume more energy the faster they travel. By contrast, a printing press has a basic level of energy consumption that covers the fundamental operating functions. Beyond this, energy consumption increases in line with rising printing speed, but since the basic level of energy consumption is spread over more printed sheets, overall energy efficiency improves. This means a press is at its most efficient when a job is being printed at full speed –ideally on a fully automated basis – and when, after that job, the system either moves on immediately to the next job or switches to standby mode if there is nothing else to be printed. “When it comes to energy efficiency in print shops, although the equipment being used is an important basis, operating that equipment in the best way possible is at least equally as important. This is often where companies can really make a big difference. It is at precisely this point that the HEIDELBERG campaign for greater energy efficiency comes in and creates a basis for fully utilizing pre-existing potential,” says Dr. Eva Boll, head of ESG at HEIDELBERG.Speedmaster XL 106 with energy measuring deviceStarting April 2023, the Speedmaster XL 106 will be supplied with an energy  measuring device as standard, albeit only in Germany initially. This will enable users to permanently monitor the energy consumption of their press – measured in 3/4kilowatt-hours per 1,000 sheets – from the control station. This read-out encourages operators to run the press in an energy-efficient way – in other words, at maximum speed. All in all, various energy-efficiency measures also help print shops reduce the CO2 emissions associated with their industrial processes. The second theme of the campaign highlights the potential in terms of savings offered by peripheral units for the Speedmaster, which makes energy efficient production possible. Next, the campaign addresses the issue of “maintenance”, revealing the extent to which regularly maintained machine systems can conserve resources and improve the energy balance. To complement the campaign, HEIDELBERG offers relevant consulting services so it can work with customers to identify potential for energy savings in the print shop and draw up plans for leveraging that potential.

Its comprehensive integration of file handling, color management and preflighting guarantees smooth and error-free jobs. The web-based Asanti Production Dashboard offers a view on your running production. It summarizes the jobs produced and reports on quantity printed, media usage, ink volumes enabling you to control your production and to manage your print shop optimally. What is the USP? It allows you to print directly on textiles and capable of print on transfer paper media as well. Single person media loading and low inks consumptions are another features. High productivity and a robust design for reliable printing at all times, vibrant prints and a wide color gamut; fine detail rendering; extensive applications scope; low ink consumption; convenient operations and a fast changeover between jobs are another features. Avinci produces good results with a minimum of jetted ink. This low ink consumption is based on Agfa’s renowned Thin Ink Layer technology: a smart combination of particular ink characteristics and our Asanti workflow software algorithms that tune the ink quantities perfectly to the required image quality mode. What training and support are available? Full in house training and support available from Agfa UAE and Belgium. Complete and integrated solution are available for printer, inks, workflow software, worldwide service and applications support. How productive is it? It prints at speed of 250 Sqm per hr on express mode. Being able to print directly to fabric is easy and ideal for fast handling and for special applications such as flags, where print-though is needed. Transfer paper allows for super sharp prints, eliminates any set-off, and limits media waste to a minimum. In addition, it extends the application scope to sportswear and fashion garments, as well as home décor prints on non-coated polyester fabrics. What does it cost? How is it sold? The recommended retail price (RRP) is approximately $220k stand alone printer and requires a separate calendaring unit. How many are in use? Currently, the latest CX3200 are around 11 units around the world. Specifications 3.2m Dye sublimation Printer Kyocera print heads 4 colour printer CYMK Direct to garment capable to print on transfer paper Max speed of 250 sqm Stand alone printer Resolution up to 600 x 1800 dpi Media types: Polyester-based fabrics, or transfer paper used to create banners, indoor wall graphics, shop decoration, outdoor advertising, light boxes, trade show displays, flags and high polyester-based blends “Agfa Avinci CX3200  was launched in June 2021.”

    Epson – SureColor SC V7000 Flatbed Printer

    Epson's first UV large format printer offers exceptional image quality, Shihab Zubair What is it? The SureColor SC-V7000 is Epson's first UV large format printer, offering exceptional image quality. The V7000 is ideal for printing eye-catching retail and outdoor signage, window displays, hoarding panels, packaging, promotional goods, and décor products. It includes Epson’s Micro Piezo printhead with ten newly developed original inks, for accurate colour reproduction for spot and corporate colours. It allows businesses the flexibility to print on a range of media up to 80mm thick including acrylics, polycarbonates, PVC, glass, aluminium, metal, polyester, foam board, styrene, wood and stone. The printhead layout enables simultaneous high-speed printing and, with the 4-zone vacuum system, it offers real flexibility for production environments. When was it launched at what are the target markets? The Epson SureColor SC-V7000 was launched in April 2021 within the Middle East region, building on the success of Epson’s award-winning range of SureColor S Series signage printers. The V7000 allows sign and display makers to expand their portfolio of products, to deliver high quality, fast and reliable results on a variety of different media. Does it replace an earlier product?
