NexPress hot property for Excel

Installed earlier this month, the process took around two weeks to complete, according to Graham Beggs, Heidelberg southern region senior accounts manager.

“Generally, these kind of installations take about 10 working days, but we are still down there now assisting them. It’s a process that runs from two to four weks,” says Beggs.

Ken Williams, Excel Australasia managing director, says that a combination of the technology and the support offered by Heidelberg was what caught his attention.

“We extensively looked at all the processes. We had prior photocopier technology, and the difference here in quality and the overall construction of the NexPress is huge,” says Williams.

“It wasn’t just down to the machine either. It was the after sales support also. Heidelberg literally have a whole system they roll out in support of the NexPress.”

The need for the new press came after the company’s previous purchase failed to meet the high expectations the company placed upon it and effectively hampered the company’s capacity to meet its nationwide commitments.

“We had a machine that effectively competes with the NexPress, however it was constantly down to 30 per cent output every week, which reduced our company’s ability to grow. We had to take steps to rectify that,” says Williams.

The NexPress 2100 is capable of printing 2100 A4 (letter) 4/4 sheets per hour, 1050 A3 (tabloid) 4/4 sheets per hour, 4200 A4 (letter) 4/0 sheets per hour, or 2100 A3 (tabloid) 4/0 sheets per hour at 600dpi. It is designed to handle paper stocks between 80 and 300gsm, at a maximum sheet size of 350x470mm.
