Environment is "Pressing" Issue
The most important environmental factor in sheet-fed offset printing is start up waste. The average is 600 sheets per job. With Heidelberg's new Prinect technology, paper spoilage can be reduced by up to 50 percent. That translates into 190 tons of paper saved a year. That's about 3,000 trees. Our new XL 75 press is also optimized for low carbon emissions. With the help of innovative control systems, the press adjusts its energy consumption to the respective demand. At the end of the day, this means it needs less energy per sheet than most competitor products. It also utilizes components free of alcohol, toxins and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
