Sandy Alexander, a provider of integrated multi-channel graphic communication solutions, has installed a new Speedmaster XL 106-8P with push-to-stop technology from Heidelberg at its Clifton, N.J., headquarters. The press is Heidelberg’s newest generation of Speedmaster machines.

The new XL 106 replaces an aging machine in the company’s Clifton facility. It will be the “flagship” press for Sandy Alexander, who hopes to shift much of the offset work it produces for its high-end cosmetics, fashion, automotive, travel and entertainment and restaurant clientele onto the machine.

The new investment, which also includes installing Prinect Production Manager, is the first step that Sandy Alexander is taking to achieve a complete closed loop JDF workflow from prepress to bindery. With full automation from prepress to press, Sandy Alexander is anticipating increasing its overall capacity and throughput.

By better automating our processes, our team will be able to better focus on productivity and eliminating unnecessary waste and downtime. Through these efforts, we can make print more cost effective for our customers,” said Mike Graff, CEO and president of Sandy Alexander.
