Packaging Printer in Russia Achieves Over 736 Million Prints with Speedmaster
Speedmaster from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has once again proven its reliability. Fifteen years ago, MM Polygrafoformlenie Packaging Company (MM POF), one of the biggest packaging printers in Russia, installed a Speedmaster XL 105 offset press. Till to date, the Speedmaster XL 105-6+L has printed over 736 million sheets — that is, on average, it delivers more than 49 million sheets per year and more than 4 million sheets per month.
The Speedmaster XL 105, printing smoothly, ensures the print shop’s ability to carry out the orders coming from the important customers — mainly worldwide leaders in the FMCG – fast-moving consumer goods market segment (food, beverages, household chemicals, etc.). The Speedmaster XL 105 from the MM POF print shop can be defined as a press with a most common configuration, but at the same time, it has been successfully doing its job over the years.
According to the production managers, the machine has always run faultlessly. All the years, its flawless functioning was supported by professional service and timely maintenance. In addition, the press uses only original spare parts — the Heidelberg-CIS service department supplies them to the print shop when necessary.
MM Polygrafoformlenie is based in the Leningrad region, Russia, and specializes in packaging printing for customers in the fast-moving consumer goods market (FMCG). Operating in compliance with international quality standards, the company is a member of the MM Group — the Europe’s biggest manufacturer of folding boxes. Currently, the Group consists of 52 enterprises in 20 countries with almost 10,000 employees. The head office is located in Vienna.
