Huge Heidelberg Deal Includes Order for 11 Speedmaster XL 106 Printing Presses With Push to Stop Technology
Just last year, Heidelberg installed 18 new XL 106 printing units at the Wilco site in Amersfoort. After ordering another eight Speedmaster XL 106 presses with a total of 43 more printing units, Wilco has now become one of the biggest users of the latest Speedmaster XL 106 generation. Wilco has concluded an additional Print Site Contract for the continuous supply of consumables, which ensures materials required for smooth operation, including ink, are delivered as and when required based on actual consumption.
“If, like us at Wilco, a company wants to be able to supply a whole range of products – from books, annual reports, and magazines all the way to direct marketing materials and flyers – in the shortest possible time, in the best quality, and on a sustainably competitive basis, it needs a motivated team, maximum efficiency, and state-of-the-art technologies,” says Robert Jan de Rooij, founder and Chief Commercial Officer of Wilco. “When it comes to cutting-edge technology, the portfolio and services offered by Heidelberg completely won us over. We see our investment decision as a groundbreaking move for boosting productivity and tightening our focus on the customer.”
Allaoui Graphic Machinery as a strategic Partner for Heidelberg
Construction work in Amersfoort is due to be completed this September, by which point all the presses will have been installed at the new Wilco site. Wilco is thus replacing eleven existing presses – all of which have been bought by the Aachen-based family-run company Allaoui Graphic Machinery GmbH (AGM). Owing to its data-based market intelligence and innovative machine-matching expertise, AGM is a strategic and reliable partner for Heidelberg and its approach goes hand in hand with the data-driven, customer-focused sales approaches at Heidelberg.
“We are seeing investments steadily rise in markets and regions that are important for us. The Smart Print Shop of the future offers our customers the opportunity to reposition themselves and invest, even in challenging times,” says Heidelberg CEO Rainer Hundsdörfer. “This deal is one of the biggest combined equipment sales in our company’s history. Our sales and service organization and our product management team have worked closely and very professionally with Allaoui Graphic Machinery GmbH on this project.”

Heidelberg starts production of printed organic electronics
Initially, the company plans to print sensors for use in dental applications. These sensors were developed at InnovationLab GmbH (iL), a joint venture of BASF, SAP and Heidelberger Druckmaschinen as well as the Kalrsruher Institute of Technology (KIT). As the first innovation, a printed sensor can digitally record the chewing pressure distribution of the occlusion, the joining of the upper and lower jaw. This can then be visualized three-dimensionally and stored on a tablet computer in order to detect and subsequently correct any undesirable developments. In the future, the Heidelberg high-tech campus will also use modern printing technology to produce sensors for digital applications, particularly in the healthcare and logistics sectors as well as the retail and automotive industries.
"The entry into the development and industrial production of printed and organic electronics is a milestone for Heidelberg," said Rainer Hundsdörfer, CEO of Heidelberg Druckmaschinen. "We see growth opportunities in the double- to triple-digit million Euro range for us as the operator of this production of high-tech sensors.”
Heidelberg’s Print Media Center Atlanta (PMC Atlanta) educated, trained, and supported nearly 1,000 printers last year through its events, trainings, and demonstrations.
PMC Atlanta is the home to Heidelberg’s North American headquarters and is the largest print demonstration center outside of Heidelberg, Germany.
In the past year, the company held four open houses with over 100 customers at each event, with the focus to showcase how Heidelberg’s workflow, equipment, products, and services work together efficiently.
‘Here at Print Media Center Atlanta, we strive to show our customers how they can make their own print shops more productive and efficient,’ said Errol Moebius, director of Print Media Center Atlanta. ‘We want customers to leave our events with a complete understanding of the Heidelberg portfolio along with our data collection to promote Smart Business Intelligence.’
Along with the open houses, PMC Atlanta has also held several industry events, including G7 training with IDEAlliance and IOPP (Institute of Packaging Professionals). The center also encourages the next generation of printers and designers by opening its doors to university tours as well as facilitating SkillsUSA competitions and trainings for print students.
‘From industry professionals to aspiring printers, PMC Atlanta is the perfect place to network, learn about new technologies, give demonstrations, and train the future print industry professionals. We are very glad that we are able to host and assist printers and graphic art students at all stages of their careers under one roof,’ said Felix Mueller, president of Heidelberg Americas.
To keep up with the latest technology, the center consistently rotates equipment as it becomes available. ‘Our customers continue to revisit the PMC Atlanta because of our updated equipment,’ added Moebius. ‘We also make sure we have equipment in-house for all print shop sizes and job requirements, always something for printers to see here at Heidelberg.’

Heidelberg debuts Print Media Industry Climate Report
The representative basis of the anonymized data is formed by around 5,000 selected offset presses of all format classes at customers worldwide who are connected to the Heidelberg Cloud. The current data for around 50 countries per segment is determined from this and displayed on a world map. The colors shown on the country map are indicators of how the estimated current production in print shops is compared to the previous year. The scale ranges from 1 (serious impact of COVID-19 on production) to 8 (production above last year's level), with 7 representing production at last year's level.
"With the Print Media Industry Climate Report we have our finger on the pulse of our customers," says Rainer Hundsdörfer, CEO of Heidelberg. "The weekly climate in the print industry was developed to support print shops during the corona pandemic in particular. It is important for all participants in the printing industry to understand which market segments and countries are currently most affected. The basis for this added value is the extensive data pool of our cloud, to which almost all newly delivered presses are connected. We publish this information without access restrictions in order to set an example for the industry and are happy to exchange information with printing associations and partners worldwide. Together we are mastering this crisis".
Heidelberg's estimates provide a timely representative picture of the current state of the print media industry and indicate where priorities and efforts are needed to support those involved in the industry.
The most important findings of the past four weeks were:
- During the coronavirus pandemic, print production in China fell by up to 80% compared to normal volumes, but recovered as the infection curve fell and is now back to last year's levels in both the commercial and the packaging/label segments.
- The packaging and label segment is very stable in the COVID-19 period, mainly due to the increasing demand for food and pharmaceutical packaging. Nevertheless, local supply problems, such as the discontinuation of paper production in India, are having a negative impact on this segment in some countries.
- While print production in all other countries was stable until mid-March 2020 and was above the level of previous years, the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and the shutdown in the countries has led to a significant reduction in print volume worldwide, especially in the commercial market.

Heidelberg Showcasing at virtual.drupa 2021
Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is showcasing its portfolio of solutions for autonomous printing at virtual.drupa 2021.
In the Exhibition Space, for instance, the company is giving presentations about product innovations in the commercial, label, and packaging segments.
One highlight, it said, is the enhanced Push to Stop concept for autonomous printing with end-to-end solutions.
Heidelberg said it is demonstrating completely automated offset production – from job acceptance through to post-press, including fully automatic plate logistics. This enables commercial and packaging printers to further boost their productivity in the extremely popular 70 x 100 format, according to Heidelberg.
On April 23, Heidelberg said it will be showing visitors to the virtual.drupa Conference Area the possible ways for print shops to become far more efficient by using AI.
“Despite being a virtual event this year, drupa remains an important meeting point for our industry. We are impressed by the concept and are looking forward to making a lot of new contacts, and also to seeing both new and familiar faces,” said Ludwig Allgoewer, head of global sales and marketing at Heidelberg. “virtual.drupa is just one of a number of customer events this year. In March, we started the HD4YOU digital webinar series. In June, we are taking part in the China Print trade show in Beijing and accompanying this with a digital customer event in Europe. And following the summer break, there will be another Innovation Week at the Wiesloch-Walldorf site, which our customers will hopefully be able to attend in person this time around."
