Solopress has extended the capabilities of its Heidelberg XL106 with the addition of PressProfiler CIP3 and PressProfiler Report.

Tailored specifically for the new B1-format Speedmaster XL3 XL106 10-colour perfecting press, the package was installed at the end of last year and been supporting the company with its work throughout 2023.

PressProfiler CIP3 is an ink coverage and ink-zone calculation solution for offset litho printing presses, providing ink-key pre-setting to allow for faster make-ready and ensuring fewer run-up sheets are required.

Meanwhile, the PressProfiler Report software provides all statistical data needed to track job progress, as well as for users to understand production costs, bottlenecks, and downtime on an offset press.

Ken McDonald, production manager at Solopress, says: “We are a high-volume print business – we are performing a good 80 or 90 make-readies per shift. PressProfiler gives us ink data for jobs, allowing us to make a fast start, shaving off minutes per make-ready, and saving a whole bunch of waste sheets as well. 

“Take all of those small bits of time and cost, then multiply them by the make-readies per shift and by four presses, and that equals three to five extra jobs per press per shift. That’s the real result of PressProfiler.”
