Press release from the issuing company
Chesapeake, a leading producer of consumer packaging, has installed a MAN Roland R700 LTTLV UV offset litho print press at its Hillington operation, just outside Glasgow.
Gary Carroll, Hillington’s Operations Manager, commented: “The R700 replaces an older, smaller press and supports the site’s growth strategy, whilst extending our capabilities. The press ideally complements the site’s existing R700 machine and the additional capacity will allow the site to produce a greater volume and range of products. It will also help strengthen the quality and service levels we deliver to our customers.”
The MAN Roland R700 press is equipped with 6 print and 2 flexo coating units, full UV and IR drying capability as well as a closed loop colour control system. The R700 has many time-saving features designed to assist in rapid changeovers which are essential in today’s fast-changing marketplace.
Chesapeake Hillington is a leading supplier of wet-applied labels and outer paper wraps primarily to the drinks, confectionery and food markets. It also supplies swing-tags, booklets and collarettes to a wide range of market sectors.
