Heidelberg has announced the immediate North American market availability of its XL 75 Anicolor digital offset press. At a crossover of just 250 sheets to digital presses (like the HP 10000), Anicolor leads in cost efficiency for digital market run lengths in the 29” format for commercial, label, package printing and POP applications.
Anicolor technology is an inking unit that achieves sellable quality in as little as 10 sheets, with total makeready times around six minutes per form. Bursting with performance-driving capabilities, the fully customizable XL 75 Anicolor is available in four- to 10-color straight and perfecting configurations, with full format flexibility up to 23 x 29”, stock flexibility up to 32 pt., as well as inline and double coating. The press can be used with 4-color process and extended multi-color process, as well as with PMS spot colors.
The XL 75 Anicolor also can save more than 90% in overall ink costs per sheet, compared with click charges incurred on the HP Indigo 30000 and 10000 digital presses. Profit-oriented print service providers can tap into these potentials, rather than make forced consumable choices associated with digital printing systems.
