The Heidelberg is truly on all-purpose press, able to handle easily sizes from a business card to maximum-sized sheet; from onion-skin to cardboard; from a simple one-color job to four-color process work. This reliable precision-manufactured machine handles a complete variety of jobs, feeding and delivering one, two or more pieces of stock simultaneously with a maximum speed and quality. Once the workhorse of print shops all across the world, the Heidelberg companys definitive fully automatic platen press is universally loved and revered for its robustness, longevity and reliability. A key feature of the design is the rotating gripper attached to the moving platen, which grips and releases the paper stock. Its this gripper which has stimulated American owners to dub it the windmill. Its also the reason why the presses have a large metal plate embossed Original Heidelberg high on the front. Without it, its too tempting to bend over the finished stock to inspect ones handiwork, only to receive a severe facial injury from the rotating gripper. For this reason later machines feature an interlock which stops the press when the guard plate is lifted. Full adjustability is a key feature of the Heidelberg platens impression weight is simply changed by rotating the impression control, whereas pushing and pulling it changes the platen travel so that impression is switched off and on. But thats just the basics. Through the long manufacturing run, many evolutionary changes were made to the basic press design. The makers added features such as central lubrication and washup facilities. A large-format platen version (13″x18″) was developed alongside the original 10″ x 15″ although the smaller press still beats its big sister on raw speed. Smallest Paper Size, Two-Up.
