Innovative technologies help power Orora

Monday, October 19, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Orora, an international packaging company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, provides customers in North America, Australia and New Zealand with innovative and high-quality print and packaging solutions. It’s operation is spread over two continents and last year enjoyed sales revenue of AUD$3.4 billion.

The packaging that Orora offers is not limited to corrugated boxes, folding cartons, multi-wall bags and sacks. It also includes a world-class recycled paper mill, aluminium beverage cans, glass bottles, and a range of packaging services including innovation,. design and research.

Orora has the team plus the cutting-edge equipment to meet its own high standards in production. Providing innovative packaging solutions and putting the customer at the heart of its business are what separates Orora from others, hence it’s not surprising the company has been the recipient of various awards.

Most recently, Orora, whose headquarters are in Melbourne, was awarded the Best Process Innovation in the 2015 BRW Most Innovative Companies. It also won 14 gold medals and five other awards at New Zealand’s Pride in Print Awards for 2015.

Yet those awards, while uplifting, are secondary to the satisfaction of knowing Orora has given the customers exactly what they want.

“We absolutely understand that brand recognition and differentiation are vital for our customers’ success,’’ says Nabil Askari, General Manager Orora New Zealand. “It is these customers’ needs that drive us to continue to invest in the world’s first-class technologies. That way we can deliver the best packaging and printing to our customers.”

Orora already operate two six-color ROLAND 700 presses with double coaters series 720 and 742; both machines considered key contributors to the company’s success because of print quality, high productivity and value added printing. Encouraged by the performance of these two machines, Orora ordered a new seven-color ROLAND 700 with coating module, Inline ColorPilot and Integration Pilot Plusfor its new Greenfield site.

As well as the new machine, the company will also install Manroland's innovative ColorPilot Smart and Integration Pilot Plus to upgrade the two existing six-color ROLAND 700 presses.

"Moving to the Greenfield site was a good reason to buy a new press, but it had to be the right choice" Orora management, including their procurement team, ensured they picked the right press for quality and productivity. “In short, the best value for money,” says Nabil Askari.

As Orora is more than familiar with ROLAND technology, Mr. Askari is confident the new seven-color press and coater configured with all the all the latest features will boost their already high speed and efficient production further.

“In today's environment, it’s not just about installing a new press. It’s also about changing the mindset of the operators to cope with the automation and high speed operation of the new presses,’’ says Mr. Steve Dunwell, Managing Director of Manroland Australasia. “We are sure that our partnership with Orora will help them gain maximum productivity from the new press.”

How innovative technologies can improve quality and productivity:-

Inline ColorPilot

This color control system automatically measures and regulates ink density at full production speed without the need to pull sheets out of the press. Inline ColorPilot saves time, improves color stability and reduces wastage during make-ready and job changeover. Print quality is consistent, productivity is increased, and the production cost is reduced.

ColorPilot Smart

It’s a great alternative color measuring and control system, which was developed based on ColorPilot. It’s especially suitable for entry-level users. Easy to use and at low cost; delivers the same high quality densitometrical and colorimetrical measured values as ColorPilot. Moreover, for the individual measurements, it can be hand held.

Integration Pilot Plus

It’s a one-touch network system designed for easy and reliable measurement and evaluation of the machine performance. It has the precise and complete tracking of production time, supplies, downtime, material collection of good sheet and waste sheet counts – all the important data a printer needs to effectively analyze and monitor the status of the press. Problems, such as non-utilized machine time, can be addressed promptly, which can save cost and increase productivity.
