Heidelberg Machine Inspections

Machine inspections have become an important part of our commitment to customer care. Helix machine inspections were developed in line with requests from our clients to deliver accurate accounts on the condition of equipment they already possess or are looking to purchase.

Helix machine inspections provide clients with a written report and photographs covering all major functions.

Our report will break the machine up into key areas, Feeder, printing units 1, 2, 3, 4 …12, coating unit and delivery. Those key areas are then broken up into systems, followed by a conclusion written by the engineer that carried out the inspection. (Subject to terms and conditions)
