Flash Installing New 40-inch Heidelberg CX

September 6, 2016  By PrintAction Staff

Flash Reproductions of Etobicoke, Ontario, last week began the installation of its new 6-colour, 40-inch Heidelberg Speedmaster CX 102 press. Recognized as one of Canada’s leading high-end print shops, Flash was established in 1969 and today runs a range of offset, letterpress and UV screen technologies to print on practically any surface, in addition to the company’s finishing expertise in areas like stitching, punching, die cutting, foil stamping and embossing.

The Speedmaster CX 102, explains Heidelberg, is a modern press concept that combines the reliability of the CD series (with well over 100,000 printing units installed worldwide) and press maker’s newest sheetfed technological innovations found in the XL platform. It is described by Heidelberg as “the universal press.”

The CX 102 is a straight press in 70 × 100-cm format (28.35 x 40.16 inches) with the ability to reach printing speeds of up to 16,500 sheets per hour. Its flexibility – and ability to process materials from lightweight paper through to rigid cardboard – allows the press to be aimed at commercial, label, and packaging printing.


The press is equipped with AutoPlate Pro for fully automatic, staggered printing plate changes and Prinect Inpress Control 2 to spectrophotometrically measure and control the colour inline during production. Prinect Inpress Control 2 allows users to also check register at the same time and readjust if necessary.
