Impressive 96-page LITHOMAN

Monday, March 09, 2015

After 2011, Bagel Roto-Offset orders a second high volume 96-page press for its location in Meineweh, Germany

Roto-Offset placed an order for a second 96-page LITHOMAN from manroland web systems in February, 2015, for its Meineweh location. The heatset commercial press will drive supplement production to new levels.

Bagel Roto-Offset is waiting for its new 96-page LITHOMAN with great anticipation. Another press of the same model has been in operation in Meineweh since 2011 with convincing performance. “The customers require flexible production of different scopes. The 96-page LITHOMAN has shown us just how much more quickly and efficiently we can print with new technology. We now want to further strengthen our market position with a second 96-page LITHOMAN,” the Managing Director states. Frank Kreisel, Regional Sales Director at manroland web systems, summarizes the project: “Roto-Offset placed its trust in us back when the 96-page LITHOMAN premiered. We are very satisfied that our machine was able to do justice to this trust over the past few years and that we were able to contribute to the company’s success. There is hardly a greater compliment than a second order for the same printing press.” 

Perfectly integrated Inline Control systems
Installation of the 96-page LITHOMAN is planned for early 2016. The LITHOMAN press, with a web width of 2860 mm, will be equipped with one reel splicer, four double printing couples, one dryer, and one cutter. Maximum automation includes not only fully-automatic AutomaticPlateLoading APL, but also the Inline Control systems developed by manroland, which are responsible for inline fanout, color, cut-off, and density control. An in-house development from manroland web systems, they offer high vertical integration, optimizing machine operation and reducing waste. Technical director Markus Permesang and the Roto-Offset team always promise their customers top quality: “The control systems perform superbly. Our employees are happy because the press is so easy to operate, while customers appreciate the printing results.
