Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG offers suitable peripheral equipment for each of these sheetfed offset printing machines. By upgrading your new or used printing machine with different modules, you create short setup times, maximum productivity and high-end quality.

The Heidelberger „Star System“ is a perfect combination to use the potential of your sheetfed offset printing press: short setup times, maximum productivity, ecological workflow and high printing quality. You can be sure to get the maximum out of your Speedmaster.

 

PERIPHERAL EQUIPMENT – AN OVERVIEW

CutStarThe CutStar is a short-grain sheeter which is being installed directly at the feeder of your Heidelberg sheetfed offset press.

With the CutStar you can use cheap rolls instead of expensive sheets. The rolls can be cut into the required format.

StaticStarThe StaticStar minimizes the static electrification of your print substrates, so that maximum printing speed can be achieved.
AirStarThe AirStar is perfectly adjusted to the Heidelberg Speedmaster machine.

A central air supply cabinet bundles nearly all single blowers for the suction and blow air of your printing machine.

The AirStar is optimized for energy conversion efficiency and reduces the energy consumption by up to 50 %.

HydroStarThe HydroStar saves time and cost by guaranteeing a constant concentration of alcohol and dampening solution. The temperatures stay constant and the dampening solution is clean.
InkStar und InkStar DirectThe InkStar System is a fully automated ink feed for the Speedmaster.

A sensor double-checks the level of ink in the ink fountain and doses accordingly.

The InkStar System consists of two-kilo ink cartridges which are internationally standardized. The cartridges are available in all offset printing colours.

The InkStar Direct System uses a valve instead of the cartridges. These are connected to the central ink supply.

FoilStarThe FoilStar stands for economical foil refinement and is available for the following sheetfed offset presses:

  • Speedmaster CD 74
  • Speedmaster XL 75
  • Speedmaster CX 102
  • Speedmaster CD 102
  • Speedmaster XL 106
  • Speedmaster XL 105

The cold-foil module refines a variety of labels and packaging and brings out brilliant metallic effects.

The module comes with 2 offset printing units. The first printing unit applies the foil gluer over the whole sheet. The second and main printing unit has absorbing and unwinding units for applying the foil.

WashStarThe WashStar reduces the time required for press cleaning with a fully automatic washing programme. It is available for the following machines:

  • Speedmaster SM 102
  • Speedmaster CD 102
  • Speedmaster SX 102
  • Speedmaster CX 102

The time saved by the WashStar plays a major role, particularly with short runs that require frequent washing. The system ensures greater press availability because you can continue printing while the WashStar is running.

CoatingStarRefinement through high gloss. The CoatingStar is a coating supply unit with highest demand and flexibility.

The low maintenance annular-piston pump technology is suitable for all kind of coating types. Coating changes are easy and quick.

DryStarDryStar Ink, DryStar Coating or DryStar Combination: you can get the right and individual dryer for each application.

Sheet guiding and dryer are combined perfectly, so that the maximum speed can be achieved.

There is no similar system which is as efficient as the DryStar.

Heat RecoveryThe heat recovery from Heidelberg enables you to reuse the heat and to optimize the process of drying.

The cross-flow heat exchanger prevents penetration of humidity to come into your machine.

DryStar UVPerfect integration into the Heidelberg press, with a minimum distance between UV dryer and sheet, allows UV printing at the highest production speed.
DryStar LE UVThe DryStar LE UV is the LE (Low Energy) version of the DryStar UV and has been developed especially for the Speedmaster XL 106 and Speedmaster XL 75.

The UV dryer enables the entry into the commercial UV market and allows your printing company to create new print products for this market.

PowderStarThe PowderStar series can be perfectly integrated in your Speedmaster.

The PowderStar does have a very precise powder dosage. 12 – 24 nozzles apply the powder and reduce the powder consumption by 30 – 50 %.

CleanStarWith the CleanStar and its four suction ducts arranged around the pile, any stray powder is caught in an exhaust air cleaning cabinet and reduces the dust load in your print shop by more than 80 %.
InsertStarThe InsertStar is a tape insertion system with counting and marking function.

The peripheral equipments of the Star System are completely integrated into the operating concept of the printing machines. This fact guarantees the controlling and timing of the press at any time.

The cross-linking of all modules to the Prinect Press Center integrates the peripheral equipment into the Remote Service of Heidelberg. The complete system can be remote controlled – whether single modules are in one room or not.
