HDX NewsSpeed, the worlds fastest and most flexible plate processor
In June 2014, Axel Springer, the leading German digital publisher in Europe, was looking for a fast and flexible low-chemistry plate processor. The processor should be working with their Dotline V-max and should keep up with a speed of 400 plates per hour.
At that time Glunz & Jensen just developed their HDX NewsSpeed for low chemistry plates, and Fujifilm recom-mended to install the NewsSpeed into Axel Springer’s site in Ahrenburg for testing. After 4 months of testing Axel Springer chose to order one more unit.
Axel Springer saw a drastic reduction in maintenance frequency on their punch bend equipment, due to the very clean plates delivered by the NewsSpeed processor. The processor leaves virtually no contamination on belts and conveyors.
Marc de Boer, QA-TMS Engineer at Fujifilm says: “We experience that the HDX NewsSpeed is capable of running more than 1000 plates per day and still we see incredible clean plates! This saves Axel Springer many hours of cleaning and maintenance!”
“Flexibility in processing has been crucial in our choice of a processing solution for Axel Springer, as we use both Fujifilm and Agfa plates in our production. NewsSpeed makes it possible for Axel Springer to easily change from one plate application to another.“
Axel Springer has just ordered three more HDX NewsSpeed processors for their site in Essen.
