Print Solutions

Falconer Print & Packaging has enhanced up its capacity with an investment in a new Speedmaster XL75-6+L mixed operation press from Heidelberg. The new machine will significantly improve lead times and offer greater flexibility. The company hopes to gain the benefits of quicker makereadies and greater colour control, thus providing better flexibility and delivering even more impressive results.


‘We looked at various manufacturers, but as a current Heidelberg user we already knew the capabilities of the presses and excellent back up service,’ said Richard Martin, managing director. ‘With this investment, Falconer Print & Packaging continues its drive to be one of the leading companies in the sector.’


The company’s press operators are looking forward to operating the new press, says Richard, as they are already comfortable with the operation of Heidelberg machines. Of course, there will be some new features on the press, but the learning curve is expected to be minimal.


The specification of the press will allow Falconer to have mixed operation allowing it to run both UV and conventional inks and varnishes, giving the customer more flexibility when designing packaging.


‘We are delighted that Falconer Print & Packaging chose Heidelberg as its business partner for this investment, which is testament to the strong working relationship, in both sales and post sales service and back up, we have both enjoyed and benefitted from. The investment in the latest generation Speedmaster XL75-6+L, with Axis control, Autoplate and Intelliline options, will be a superb fit for the business and offer technological advantages in this sector,’ said Phil Buttress head of sales for Heidelberg UK and Ireland. ‘The Speedmaster XL75 provides maximum flexibility thanks to the extensive configuration options for the most demanding requirements in the packaging market. We are certain that the new investment will help Falconer Print & Packaging to achieve significant growth and reach new heights of productivity.’


Established in 1987 and still privately owned, Falconer Print & Packaging is a manufacturer of printed folding cartons to the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, giftware, healthcare, drinks, veterinary and luxury confectionery sectors.
