Windmöller & Hölscher Heliostar S
1000th HELIOSTAR S printing unit completed

This February Windmöller & Hölscher manufactured the thousandth print unit for the HELIOSTAR S gravure press. The unit is part of a press being produced for a well-known packaging company in Southeast Asia. Including this press, there are currently more than 100 HELIOSTAR S presses operating at market leading companies as well as local family businesses in more than 30 countries on all continents.

„Alongside the HELIOSTAR G, the HELIOSTAR S has become one of the leading gravure presses for printing flexible packaging“, said Ulrich Harte, Manager Business Development Printing and Finishing at W&H. The key to this success is the expansive flexibility of the machines. The HELIOSTAR S can be tailored to meet company needs and job requirements. Guaranteed quality and cost-effective production are the primary sales points. The HELIOSTAR is available in print widths between 650 and 1700 mm and offers a variety of inking, drive, register control, drying and winding options. Additional optional modules for treaters, anti-static bars and web inspection are also available.
