    Does anyone know of a resource that can clarify Heidelberg press naming.

    What is the difference between a KORS and KORD or a SORM ect.

    What information would you like to know......as there are quite a few different models.

    For instance the difference between the KORS and KORD is the maximum size the press can print.
    The SORM is a different model altogether.

    Regards.

    I am hoping to find an overview of the heidelberg model line.

    GTO, GTO-S, Printmaster, SORMZ, MO, KORS/KORD, SORDZ

    What is the differnce between the models. What advancements had been made or
    what features had been added. Even Heidelberg's site does not give a good history
    of the evolution or describe the specification of the press line. They do have a brief
    history of Heidelberg but I am trying to learn about the presses and there capabilities.

    Additionally I would like to understand what the letters following a press name mean, like +L or V Z Looking at press configurations is impossible if you don't have a reference to what the names mean.

    Ideally I would like to have a resource to review the models overview and the options of the Heidelberg presses.

    +L - Plus laquer (coater)
    Z - 2 colour V - 4 Colour F - 5 colour S - 6 Colour and the older ones A - 8 colour

    GTO can get as a SRA3 (GTO 46) or B3 (GTO52) Sheet size , the GTO s is the same bu they have stream feeders and usually a CPtronic and console

    MO is SRA2 can get as Low or High pile with and without coater and consoles

    Dont know much about the old kords

    SORM - Low pile B2 the very late ones you could get with a console Z meaning 2 colour, not available as more than 2 colour

    SORD same as the Sorm but with a Sheet size of SRA1

    As i understand the S line press units run back to back I.E the plate mounting side of the units are facing in oposite directions one 2 colour models

    hope this helps

    I appreciate your help. There are so many presses and configurations. If there was a comparison chart or specification comparing the models I would like to understand more.

    What is SRA1, SRA2 and SRA3? What does the SRA stand for?

    Thanks again

    SRA1, 2, and 3 are paper sizes
    SRA1 - 640 by 900
    SRA2 - 450 by 640
    sra3 - 320 by 450

    The GTO only for a very short period of time came with a stream feeder. Of the large number of GTOs out there very few have stream feeders. All GTOs with stream feeders had CPtronic and I dont believe any with the single sheet feeders had CPtronic, however you could get it with a consol. The GTO is still made today without stream feeder and without CPtronic. The stream fed GTO was really the predecesor of the SM52. As far as the meaning behind the letters, SORK = 25", SORM= 29", SORD = 36", SORS = 40". Add a Z to the end of those means its a 2 color. I kinda remember many years ago a guy that had been with Heidelberg for 50 years or so told me that the letters are all the first letter in a german word the denote the size of the machine relating to the windmill. Not a 100% sure on that. Maybe one of the old timers on here can remember.
