Kern GmbH Installs New Heidelberg Speedmaster SX 102-8-P

German commercial print shop and media service provider Kern GmbH has recently added a brand new Speedmaster SX 102-8-P 4/4 to its machinery. The eight-color-press with sheet-reversing device replaces the old SM 102 8. Kern GmbH has already tested world’s first Speedmaster CX 102 in 2010 and will act again as a pioneer in testing the new Speedmaster SX 102-8-P.

The Speedmaster SX 102 combines the technology of the XL series with the platform of the Speedmaster SM 102. The new press offers more efficiency and profitability thanks to shorter make-ready and throughput times. In addition, it offers enhanced ergonomic operation. Kern GmbH relies on innovation in the field of sheet-reversing with a production speed of up to 14,000 sheets per hour and top quality results in perfecting printing. The wide range of configuration possibilities offers individual solutions for a profitable production.

As a pioneer of ecological printing, Heidelberg develops eco-friendly solutions. The Speedmaster SX 102 is equipped with Inpress Control to reduce cut waste and works steadily with just a 2.5 % of alcohol. Those solutions correlate completely with "Kern goes green", the ecological principle of the German printing and media service company. The Speedmaster SX 102 is to be presented to the public in May, during the drupa print media fair in Düsseldorf.
