Press release from the issuing company

Westmont, Illinois — PIA/GATF has awarded a 2006 InterTech Award to MAN Roland for InlineFoiler PRINDOR — a press innovation that makes foil-enhanced printing significantly more profitable for printers and more accessible to their customers. “This latest InterTech Award confirms the value of our philosophy of providing more inline/quick change opportunities to printers so they can lower their cost of production and go after new business to raise their revenues,” says Yves Rogivue, CEO of MAN Roland Inc. With three of the devices purchased in the U.S. after a successful European launch, InlineFoiler PRINDOR is a proven way to add value to a wide range of applications. Packaging printers can impart more shelf appeal to their products in a single, productive pass. Label printers benefit from InlineFoiler PRINDOR’s ability to add brilliance to wine, beer, liquor, cosmetic and other specialty labels. Publication facilities can use it to add more impact to magazine covers. And commercial shops can employ InlineFoiler PRINDOR to produce more compelling direct mail, business cards, annual reports, greeting cards and a host of other items. “Printing has to reinvent itself to compete in an increasingly crowded media marketplace,” adds Rogivue. “InlineFoiler PRINDOR is the latest innovation to drive that profitable process. We thank the InterTech Award panel for recognizing its advantages.” In operation, InlineFoiler PRINDOR automates the foiling process by incorporating it into the regular printing cycle. That provides printers with a cost-effective way to add value to their products, while eliminating the need for hot foil stamping, and time and expense associated with that off-line technique. The inline procedure also eliminates the expensive and waste-laden process of using metallized-laminated substrates. The new InterTech Award winner can be installed on two printing units of any recent vintage ROLAND 700 press — MAN Roland’s 41-inch model. Those units can be used for regular offset printing when InlineFoiler PRINDOR is not engaged. To make printing more attractive, the device works while the press prints, providing the brilliance of foil lamination and the quality of offset printing in a single pass. It even equips the press to print over the applied foil to produce additional special effects that printers can profitably offer. InlineFoiler PRINDOR helps printers attract new customers in several ways. Marketers are increasingly looking for new ways to make their sales literature, labels and packaging more eye-catching. With InlineFoiler PRINDOR, printers can reward their search by giving them access to high gloss, reflective foil products. Applying security elements, such as holograms, on printed products is another application that InlineFoiler PRINDOR adds to a printer’s list of services. Because InlineFoiler PRINDOR uses a patented cold foil technique rather than a stamping process, it sets new standards for resolution and edge definition — two problem areas for hot foil stamping equipment. That means InlineFoiler PRINDOR provides designers and print buyers with new and more compelling ways to add the glossy appeal of foil to their projects. Other advantages: the InlineFoiler PRINDOR process is considerably faster than hot foil stamping, delivering at production speed, while the press prints. It doesn’t damage heat sensitive substrates because it’s a cold foil process. And it can be equipped to apply as many as five types of foil at a time.
