Print at its finest: Transformation; A magazine about, and printed on, the Rotoman

Monday, June 14, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

38 pages of print at its finest – this was the title of a practice-oriented semester project of the Faculty of Design at the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences. The assignment: to design a high-end ROTOMAN print sample that conveys the exceptional flexibility and print quality of this powerful and dependable printing system.

Thirteen students accepted the challenge, took care of the concept and layout, planned the entire project, and thus got to know the interplay of content, layout, paper, printing and finishing. The result: a 38-page magazine, with a six-page fold-out cover, that puts the ROTOMAN in the limelight in terms of content and production. The magazine was printed on a ROTOMAN at the Mayr Miesbach printing company. This modern full-service printer covers the entire process chain from digital prepress through sheetfed and webfed printing right up to finishing and logistics. The top priority for the around 200 employees of this family-owned company is to deliver quality, which has given it an excellent reputation as a partner and services provider for agencies, publishers, trade and industry. The ROTOMAN at Mayr Miesbach has five printing units, with the last one used for applying oil-based coatings and spot colors. Inline finishing equipment such as a perforating unit or plow fold offer many design possibilities. A protective coating was applied to the Transformation print sample inline in the fifth printing unit of the ROTOMAN. One signature was delivered flat, folded separately, and integrated in the magazine as a six-page fold-out section. The other signatures ran over the folder in the usual manner. The cover also has six pages and was printed on a ROLAND 700.

Carefully selected substrates
High-grade papers ensure the perfect symbiosis of concept and realization. Finesse Premium Silk, a matt-coated 115 g/m² paper from UPM, was used for the inside pages. The cover owes its surprising haptic and futuristic appearance to Ispira PUREZZA, a 250 g/m² paper from Fedrigoni that fascinates with its special surface enhancement. The ROTOMAN has been setting the standards in web offset for decades. Cutting edge technology with a high degree of automation for fast job changeover, and the highest precision, speed and flexibility make it ideal for the widest range of applications.
