High Quality commercial Printer – Olympia Pte Ltd Invests in New Speedmaster CX 102-5


One happy CX 102 user Olympia Press Pte Ltd, recently installed a new Speedmaster CX 102-5 to address their requirement for high quality commercial printed products.

Mr. Thomas Tan has a long experience with Heidelberg products and is a strong advocate in investment in the latest technology 

Olympia Printing Pte Ltd bought the new CX 102 because of XL technology that is inbuilt in the CX press. They can print a wide range of substrates from very thin to thick stocks on the CX 102 press. This gives them the flexibility to take in different kinds of print jobs from their customers.  The ability to link to front end and press room manager is also part of the reason for the CX 102 investment. The company has also recently invested in a new Digital printing press Ricoh C751 sold by Heidelberg and a Stahlfolder to address their growing short run color commercial print segment.

Mr Tan stated “ the new Heidelberg CX 102 is a reliable and quality press and most importantly the after sales service offered by Heidelberg is second to none”



Flexibility for Success – The Ideal Combination of Innovation and Stability


The Speedmaster CX 102 is the forward-looking response from Heidelberg to the challenges of the market. To keep time and costs under control, it is vital to cut the throughput times for each individual job. Shorter makeready times, consistently high production speeds of up to 16,500 sph, excellent print results, and high machine availability are the key performance features of the Speedmaster CX 102. These have been achieved by uniting the successful platform of the Speedmaster CD 102 with state-of-the-art technology from the XL class from Heidelberg. The result is a cutting-edge machine that perfectly combines reliability and innovation and gives you a decisive advantage in performance.

The Speedmaster CX 102 has all the flexibility needed to handle packagings, labels or high-quality commercial jobs.

The wide range of configurations and equipment makes it possible to adapt the Speedmaster CX 102 to each job's precise requirements and thereby ensure profitable production. The extensive automation and ergonomic operation of the entire machine deliver optimum efficiency and cost-effectiveness. This makes the Speedmaster CX 102 an ideal investment in the future.

Well Established Singapore Packaging customer installs CX 102 press.

K.P.P. Packaging is one of the leading suppliers of paper packaging and folding carton products in Singapore.

The company supplies packaging products to software manufacturers, advertising agencies, the electronics and electrical industry, and pharmaceuticals as well as food & beverage manufacturers, it was therefore an easy choice for KPP to invest in the High performance Speedmaster CX 102-4+L.

The first CX 102 in Singapore was sold to K.P.P. Packaging. The company continuously invests in new technologies to assure its customers of their commitment to deliver good and consistent print quality jobs.  The CX 102 has helped them to meet stringent print quality demand from their customers. 

K.P.P. Packaging expects high print quality for both long and short run packaging print jobs. The company needs a reliable brand of press that can help them deliver top print qualities to their customers promptly. Their customers are demanding over print quality. Color management is important to the company and this is the reason why the company has also invested in an Image control from Heidelberg.     

A Positive experience: “The ongoing relationship between K.P.P. Packaging and Heidelberg is based on the reliable performance of the equipment as well as the good after-sales support from Heidelberg Systemservice for parts and maintenance work. Heidelberg sales and service team are also knowledgeable and competent to provide quality advice.” Stated Mrs Josephine Low (director KPP)









Environmentally friendly-  Carbon Neutral



As a pioneer of ecological printing, Heidelberg develops solutions to eliminate or reduce CO 2 and process emissions and cut waste. 

Consequently, the technology of the Speedmaster CX 102 sets standards in more than just productivity. Its high energy and resource efficiency make it the most environmentally friendly press in its class. A measuring device can be used to measure and display the press' energy efficiency per 1,000 sheets during production. This allows the operator to run the machine with exceptional energy efficiency. Another way of reducing energy requirements is to employ a heat recovery system so that waste air from the DryStar Combination dryer can be re-used for the drying process. The Star System peripherals are perfectly coordinated with the press. They are highly efficient and designed to save energy and resources. Reducing or completely eliminating the use of alcohol by equipping the press with special packages makes another important contribution to green print production. This results in a print process that delivers eco-friendly operation at low costs.



And for this reason- well established Singaporean  Printer Tien Wah Press. Invested in a new Speedmaster CX 102-6L for the Johor Baru operation.

The new installation of the Speedmaster CX 102-6+L UV at Tien Wah Press Johor is an illustration of the company’s confidence in Heidelberg products. The Johor Factory alone has 43 Printing units of Heidelberg 70x100 presses installed.

The CX 102-6L UV press primarily prints speciality printwork and the focus is towards high quality and high value applications.

On the experience with the new CX 102 press , Operations director Mrs Florence Tan states,

“The new CX 102 is a very productive and versatile press. It is easy to set-up and very efficient with the fast make-ready.  

We can easily changeover from UV to conventional and vice without much hassle. Besides, the press can accommodate a vast range of stocks/substrates. Productivity in our production floor has increased with the new CX 102”
