The Speedmaster CS 92 was presented for commercial printing at Print China 2015. Due to its 65 x 92 cm format, it requires 20 percent less plate material than the 70 x 100 format. It is thus gaining in popularity, as demonstrated by additional installations in Germany, France and the U.S.
“A detailed analysis of our business quickly made it clear that the 65 x 92 format is the perfect match to our job structure,” said Antoine Rollin, Managing Director of the family company which he took over in 1992. “The positive results also apply to gang runs. With the Speedmaster CS 92, we can print nine A4 repeats on one sheet or as many as three A4 flyers with fold-outs; other machines in this category are not able to provide this degree of flexibility. At the end of the day, we are more efficient because our machine fleet is more suitable for the market that we operate in, and we were able to reduce our costs.”
The coating unit, a first for the printing company founded in 1954, also helped Rollin Imprimeur to extend its range. The integration of this technology creates completely new options, as all stages of numerous jobs with finishing can now be completed. With its modern technology, the Speedmaster CS 92 also brings a new dynamic to the entire team: “The machine’s automation components change the way our printers work and their level of motivation. The Speedmaster CS 92 is a very high-performance model. We can therefore produce with average speeds of 13,000 sheets per hour and often at full speed of 15,000 with some longer print runs. In comparison with our old machine, we were able to achieve an increase in productivity of more than 25 % thanks to faster setup, shorter make-ready times and easier maintenance. This is a genuine technological advance and our customers benefit from it,” said Rollin.
