The machine control station for presses. Prinect Press Center 2.

The Prinect Press Center 2 control station for Heidelberg presses takes great expectations in its stride, setting new standards in operating philosophy.
Cutting-edge technology, smart automation, and excellent data management create the conditions for sustainable efficient production and provide the investment security that print companies need today and in the future.
The Prinect Press Center 2 harnesses the potential offered by its ease of operation, combined with smart automation, to systematically minimize the time needed for each print job.

High user-friendliness

  • The Prinect Press Center 2 offers optimum user-friendliness thanks to outstanding ergonomics
  • Machine control station with generous sheet deposit area and 2 drawers
  • Integrated standard daylight lamp with Fresnel lens technology for optimized illumination (ISO 3664 compliant) with ambient light shield and software-based monitoring of the lamps’ operating hours
  • Sturdy 19-inch touchscreen for direct and intuitive machine operation – individually adjustable using tilt and turn functions
  • Remote ink adjustment with direct input of the ink zone settings and immediate visualization of the ink profile in coarse and fine diodes on the ink zone display (not with SX 52 Anicolor)
  • Effective protection of electronic components against dust and water (protection to IP54)
  • Magnetic storage box for utensils for free positioning on the Prinect Press Center 2

High productivity

  • Comprehensive package of integrated software applications for short makeready times and high productivity
  • Innovative, patented, and process-oriented Intellistart operator guidance system significantly boosts Speedmaster productivity
  • While one job is being processed, the next one is already being prepared
  • The intelligent use of all relevant information relating to the current job and the next one means that 70 percent fewer steps are needed to set up the press for the subsequent job
  • The current press settings are compared with the settings required for the next job, and the information obtained is used to automatically generate a job change program
  • All the steps of relevance for the job change are clearly shown and completed in the most time-efficient way
  • Depending on the number of jobs and their complexity, annual production capacities can be increased by up to eight percent
  • The Color Assistant Pro assistance system offers high-precision ink metering, optimum ink presetting, and much less paper waste during setup. Color presetting profiles for different papers, inks, and printing conditions are automatically optimized. Ink fountain liner wear is automatically compensated

Short makeready times

Color Fast Solution: Various software applications running automatically in the background ensure fast inking-up with minimal waste and a stable ink-water balance. This is achieved with the following functions among others:

  • Automatic ink vibrator throw-off through optimized vibrator shutdown at the end of the job
  • “Smart Restart” for improved preinking and less start-up waste after printing is interrupted
  • Status-controlled preinking programs
  • “Color Booster” for accelerated inking unit reactions
  • Speed-compensated predampening programs for less start-up waste
  • “Green light” signals to the operator when ink or register corrections are complete and new settings can be made or a control sheet removed
  • Speed-compensated predampening programs for less start-up waste with the Speedmaster SX 52 Anicolor
  • “Green light” on the Speedmaster SX 52 Anicolor signals when register corrections or temperature settings are complete and new settings can be made or a control sheet removed

High user-friendliness

  • The Prinect Press Center 2 offers unique and intelligent control software with a user-friendly operating philosophy that is the same across all models
  • The intuitive and unique control software with its easy to understand menu structure reliably guides the operator through the various processes at all times
  • Easy, direct remote control of the lateral, circumferential, and diagonal registers as well as the ink zones, ink fountain roller, and water pan roller speed
  • Job-specific storage of machine settings
  • System-supported maintenance instructions as well as logging of maintenance activities
  • Unique online help in 26 languages for fast explanation of the respective key function directly on the touchscreen as well as the full online user manual in 7 languages
  • Interface for the Internet-based Heidelberg Remote Services (e.g. eCall) offers unique analysis options as well as fast and efficient support
  • Coordinated software options permit modular expansion of the control software functions as well as direct integration into the Prinect production workflow and for Performance Benchmarking

High productivity

  • The Prinect Press Center 2 integrates the printing press into the Prinect print shop workflow for excellent data management, current production data, and informative reports
  • Networking with other areas makes it possible to retrieve job data at any time and initiate processes
  • All the system’s job and presetting data for the press can be adopted at the job preparation stage
  • The operator can also obtain an overview of all outstanding print jobs just as quickly thanks to transparent job scheduling on the touchscreen
  • The Prinect Press Center 2 in turn provides the Prinect Pressroom Manager with shop floor data on all current status, ensuring that production data reports are always up to date
  • Prinect Performance Benchmarking tells you how productively you are working by anonymously comparing your data with that of your competitors

Short makeready times

  • The Prinect workflow uses production data such as job information, preview images, and ink presettings for fast and precise workflows for fast makeready processes
  • Prinect coordinates the prepress and print processes and calibrates inking on the presses for fast inking-up
  • Spectrophotometric color measurement systems for optimal, reproducible color stability such as Prinect Easy Control, the most economical color measurement system in its class and therefore the ideal entry point into spectral measuring technology, and Prinect Image Control 3 for measuring the entire print image
  • Dynamic ink control with Prinect color measurement systems significantly reduces the measuring intervals
  • Ongoing control with color measurement systems for reliable results during production

Components are not always available for all models.
