A Heidelberg customer has recorded more than 736 million prints using a Speedmaster 15 years after the printer was installed.
MM Polygrafoformlenie Packaging Company (MM POF), one of the biggest packaging printers in Russia, installed the Speedmaster XL 105 offset press back then, with the printer still delivering on its reliability.
MM Polygrafoformlenie is based in the Leningrad region in Russia, and specialises in packaging printing for customers in the fast-moving consumer goods market (FMCG).
Operating in compliance with international quality standards, the company is a member of the MM Group — the Europe’s biggest manufacturer of folding boxes. Currently, the Group consists of 52 enterprises in 20 countries with almost 10,000 employees.
According to the company, the Speedmaster has printed over 736 million sheets to date – that is, on average, delivering more than 49 million sheets per year and more than 4 million sheets per month.
The Speedmaster XL 105, printing smoothly, ensures the print shop’s ability to carry out the orders coming from its FMCG customers.
“The Speedmaster XL 105 from the MM POF print shop can be defined as a press with a most common configuration, but at the same time, it has been successfully doing its job over the years. According to the production managers, the machine has always run faultlessly,” the company said.
All the years, its operability has been supported by professional Heidelberg service and maintenance.
In addition, the press uses only original spare parts — the Heidelberg-CIS service department supplies them to the print shop when necessary.
