Swedish Printer TelloGruppen AB adopts latest LED UV drying technology for its eight-color ROLAND 700 HiPrint press

Tuesday, June 07, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Located in Söderköping in southern Sweden, TelloGruppen AB is a successful family-owned printing house specializing in commercial printing, both offset and digital. Thirty-five years since it was established TelloGruppen AB has grown steadily. Apart from being profitable for the sustainable development, it has also built a solid reputation for top product quality and dependability. 

“We have succeeded by listening to the customers, investing in the latest technology, working hard, investing in quality and protecting the environment,’’ says Mr. Magnus Ringqvist, the company’s Vice VD. “Moreover, we maintain very competitive prices.”

The company invested in an eight-color ROLAND 700 HiPrint in 2010, which at the time represented a huge step for them in improving print quality and production efficiency. Customer requirements were changing rapidly based on the market environment, and TelloGruppen started to think what else they could do to shorten the lead time and enhance print quality. They required that the drying time should be close to zero. Based on the professional and comprehensive consultation with Manroland Sheetfed, LED UV emerged as the best choice for the company. 

LED UV technology is built on a combination of special LED UV lamps and highly reactive UV ink. Designed for faster curing results and premium curing quality, it has numerous advantages. It’s a big energy saver and it allows for instant drying and immediate post-press production. LED UV is also highly resistant to scratches and abrasions. Moreover, it encourages eco-friendly production because it doesn’t emit ozone and doesn’t use powder. 

“LED UV has a lot of benefits, for example, zero drying time and excellent print quality especially on uncoated papers,” says Mr. Björn Gustafsson, Managing Director of Manroland Nordic.
Mr. Ringqvist is satisfied with the curing result of LED UV technology. “It looks like it’s coated, but it’s not,’’ he says. “What’s more, there is no powder, which is more environmental friendly.” He notes that with LED UV technology, a “black page is really black. Usually only a grayish color could be achieved without the use of LED UV.”

Mr. Gustafsson has no doubt that LED UV technology will have a huge impact on Tello Gruppen’s production. “LED UV provides TelloGruppen with new capabilities,’’ he says. “As its lead time is significantly shortened and its print quality meets the requirements of its customers, it will surely be able to attract more new customers and further grow its business.”

As one of the major developments in the drying process in recent years, LED UV technology is practical and being incorporated more and more into the production process. Manroland Sheetfed in fact has integrated the LED UV drying system into all of its press series from 0B to large format machine. 

At drupa 2016, visitors of the Manroland Sheetfed booth are able to lively experience the wonders of LED UV drying technology on the showcasing ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION. Visit us at Hall 14, C21 at Messe Düsseldorf from May 31 to June 10.
