Heidelberg has revealed a perfecting version of its popular Speedmaster XL 105, which it claimed will pair up with the SM 102-P to become the two most productive B1 sheetfed perfecting solutions available.
The Roland 200 came to the market at the beginning of the 1990s. Replacing the Roland Favorit, the 200 was faster and boasted far superior levels of automation, as well as a new highly developed feeder.
According to Mitsubishi Lithographic Presses UK managing director Thomas Doliwa, when the B1 Mitsubishi 3 series was first launched, comparing it to other machines at the time was like comparing "a Toyota to a Vauxhall". The most popular press manufacturer in Japan did not install its first press - the 3E sheetfed machine - in the UK until 1987.
