Dutch Printer Scholma Druk Invests in manroland

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Press release from the issuing company


How to meet the challenge of a difficult economic climate is testing the mettle of print bosses across Europe. But one firm in the Netherlands believe they’ve got the answer – invest in manroland technology.

Scholma Druk B.V are one of the biggest commercial printers in the northern part of the Netherlands, producing magazines, catalogues, brochures, leaflets and books etc.

They decided that to respond to overcapacity in the market they had to reduce production costs and waste and make-ready times.

They chose a five-colour Roland 700 DirectDrive with coating and InlineColorPilot to achieve that goal.

“After careful consideration and comparison, we chose the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive based on its three exclusive features and advantages- efficiency, print quality and flexibility,” says Martin Scholma, the company’s director-owner.

The efficiency mentioned by him refers to the multi-tasking and shortest make- ready time of the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive. Plate-changing that previously had to be done successively can now take place simultaneously in all the printing units. In addition, the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive can reduce make-ready time by up to 60% compared with a conventional sheetfed offset press.

The ROLAND 700 DirectDrive is equipped with the InlineColorPilot, the fastest system in the market, that measures the printed sheets inside the press and automatically regulates the inking units. It is a non-stop process without the need to continuously pull sheets.This saves time and waste sheets, improves color stability, and offers complete documentation of the production run.
