ROLAND 900 XXL: PERFECT in Format 8

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

manroland (booth #858) will be at Graph Expo 2010, the year's largest graphic communications exhibition and conference in North America, on October 3-6, 2010, in Chicago's McCormick Place South.  manroland will be featuring all of the latest 2010 technology releases, and one of the main discussion topics which manroland expects to draw interest from the US and Canadian Markets is Large Format Perfecting.

As reported earlier this year, over six million sheets have already been printed. Just a few weeks after start-up, the Augsburg (Germany) printing company, Himmer, already started gathering substantial benefits from its first sheetfed press worldwide in format 8 (73 inch) with perfecting.

Achieving excellent quality from the very start, Himmer, a publication printer, was able to take on production for numerous newly acquired orders on the ROLAND 900 XXL. In order to handle the large order volume, Himmer recently increased from two-shift to three-shift production: a considerable development, given the fact that 64 four-color pages are printed nearly twice as fast with perfecting than they would be in two straight printing runs.

New standards in cost-efficient production
Himmer can take advantage of a highly productive simultaneous two-sided perfecting process that avoids downstream matching. This reduces waste and eliminates allowance for the second side. The full print run can always be started with confidence. With InlineColorPilot, the integrated ink density measurement and control system, a good-sheet status is achieved immediately, and excellent quality is guaranteed throughout the print run.

Ease in handling
The print sheets in format 8 (73 inch) are separated into two precise format 5   (36 inch) piles by the InlineSlitter, which is integrated in the sheet delivery, and prepared for simple finishing in conventional sheet folders.
