Custom Rigging and Installation Services of Heidelberg Speedmaster CX 102

Boulter is fully capable of rigging and providing complete installation services for Heidelberg USA printing presses.

At the request of a local printing company, Boulter installed a new Heidelberg Speedmaster CX 102. After receiving the necessary units at our warehouse, we began the process and used a range of equipment; including, a portable gantry lift, fork and hand trucks, jacks, and skates.

First, we packaged the necessary installation pieces into 12 crates for transport.  Prior to arrival, the building owner prepared a concrete floor. Once onsite, Boulter’s 4-man crew worked 12-hour days to assemble all the pieces. After ensuring the assembly was properly leveled and aligned, the crew anchored it to the floor based on manufacturing specifications.

The total assembly consisted of 5 distinct sections — the lightest section weighed 27,414 pounds while the heaviest weighed 45,569 pounds. A representative from Heidelberg supervised the entire process to guarantee that the rigging and installation of the printing press met exact requirements. In total, the project took one week.
