INTRODUCING THE XL106
This 10-colour wide format perfecting press is capable of printing both conventional and UV inks in addition to applying a variety of conventional and UV coatings and effects. The XL106-10P+UV can print up to ten colours plus flood UV coating in a single pass, ensuring high productivity.

MAKEREADY & INSPECTION CONTROL – The XL106 features central digital press control allowing the operator to have the press up to colour in minutes. Heidelberg's closed loop colour measurement system is fully integrated with prepress and utilizes 2 inline spectrophotometers to inspect every single sheet produced on the press. The automated early warning system utilizes optical scanners mounted along the sheet delivery to ensure the maximum possible security in the printing process – at any speed. This puts an end to costly manual quality assurance measures or expensive reprinting of the whole run due to minor printing errors.
