Allied Litho Remain True to manroland with Purchase of ROLAND 900

Friday, July 22, 2011

With the purchase of a new ROLAND 900, Allied Litho from Kansas City in North America remains true to the manufacturer. Since this printer was founded in 1949, only manroland presses have been used in its sheetfed operations.

The highest economic efficiency and optimal support are indispensable for holding one's ground in a very competitive environment, and Allied Litho know they are on the winning side with manroland presses. This is the second time Allied Litho, one of the largest packaging printers in the USA's Midwest, has purchased a six-color ROLAND 900. Allied Litho almost doubled its capacity with the purchase of a ROLAND 900, XXL 30 months ago. Now the company is looking to boost its productivity and profitability with the addition of a similarly versatile press. The new press is capable of performing 70 percent of the work that is currently being done on the ROLAND 900, XXL which will considerably expand Allied Litho's capacity once again.

Tim Heier, Allied Litho's CEO, faces the future with confidence: "Eventually we would like to get to a point where we are running our two presses on a two-shift basis. Our third shift would be a swing shift where we would use one or the other, depending on the requirements of the work at hand."

The ROLAND 900, with speeds up to 14,000 sheets per hour, provides superior print quality and significant automation, including automated plate changing and printnet workflow integration. It is a flexible system for paper and carton right through to corrugated board as it can process substrates from 0.04 up to 1.2 millimeters.
