ROTOMAN S accelerates the tempo of web press printing

Press release from the issuing company

McCormick Place, Chicago — MAN Roland’s ROTOMAN S web press can print at speeds of up to 85,000 cph, thanks to an array of innovations led by its sleeve-offset technology. The advancement virtually eliminates gap bump and the vibrations that go with it. The smoother-running results also improve print quality, as does ROTOMAN’s 1:1 cylinder configuration. The format is made possible by the press‘s no-gap blankets. Conventional plates are used on the ROTOMAN S with narrow-gap plate lockup. ROTOMAN S can print heatset signatures of up to 24 pages in a single-web configuration. High-productivity features include automated plate changing (PPL) for swapping out plates in a matter of minutes and MAN Roland’s PECOM press control system. From the PECOM console, the pressman can control the entire press line, monitor the printing process and optimize print quality. In-line finishing equipment, color register control, ink supply system, blanket washers and chill roll washers can all be monitored, adjusted and controlled via PECOM. The result is the ultimate in makeready automation. What’s more, PECOM can network the ROTOMAN S and other MAN Roland presses with a plant’s prepress operation and Management Information System (MIS), consolidating all aspects of production and administration into a streamlined flow. ROTOMAN S can be equipped with an 85,000 cph 2:5:5 pin-type jaw folder, 2:3:3 pin-type jaw folder, or double-former folder, thereby providing an automated high-speed print production assembly line for high-volume commercial and publication printers.
