Heidelberg unveils world’s fastest sheetfed offset press

November 7, 2022  By PrintAction Staff

Heidelberg premieres the world’s fastest sheetfed offset press. The Speedmaster XL 106 can print 21,000 sheets per hour, up from 18,000 sph. This press is suitable for companies producing packaging in the 70 x 100 format.

Heidelberg has optimized some 200 components throughout the entire system, from feeder to delivery. For example, two servo motors now drive the feeder directly and, in the delivery, the weight of the gripper bars has been reduced and they have been adapted to the new printing speed to ensure stable and reliable operation.

“With the newly unveiled Speedmaster XL 106, Heidelberg is taking sheetfed offset printing performance to the next level and enabling folding carton manufacturers in particular to become more competitive,” said Dr. Ludwin Monz, CEO of Heidelberg.


Cardbox Packaging, an international packaging manufacturer headquartered in the Austrian town of Wolfsberg, has commissioned the first Speedmaster XL 106.
