MAN Roland demos 900 at open house

Press release from the issuing company

April 21, 2008 -- "MAN Roland has been a leader in large-format presses for three-quarters of a century," asserts MAN Roland CEO Vince Lapinski.  "It's over 75 years since we introduced the Roland Ultra  in 1933;  and each new generation along the way has gone far beyond simply making bigger machines."

"At our Westmont Graphics Demonstration Center (near Chicago, IL) on June 23rd and 24th," he continues, " under the theme of Make No Small Plans, Open House visitors can see firsthand the latest results of things we've learned - not the least of which are better ways to help printers translate high technology into bottom line returns by applying the right

"In a marketplace overrun with 40-inch machines, there's no question that large format 900s offer printers an alternative to differentiate their business, and to expand with POP displays, packaging and additional general commercial applications.

"But bigger is really better when - and only when - your press comes with the designed-in systems to turn those large format sheets into faster, higher payback on your bottom line," Lapinski emphasizes.  "And no other large format press can match the output quality, automated speed and
efficiency of our 900s."

Demos will show how exclusive MAN Roland 900 features deliver time- and cost-saving benefits.

Open House visitors can observe advanced MAN Roland systems such as:

- PECOM Press Center - unmatched operating, workflow
integration and automation for faster make readies and more.

- Power Plate Loading, which loads/clamps plates in less than a minute per unit.

- Double-sized impression cylinder that reduces stress on sheets, helps ensure superior contact and print quality.

- Automated blanket impression-cylinder adjustment for substrates from thin papers up to 1.2 mm/0.040" carton stocks.

Plus MAN Roland's exclusive remote diagnostics capabilities via
TelePrescence - which enables factory and service specialists to
monitor press activities, troubleshoot problems, maximize press
performance and uptime.

Open House presenters will also note in detail how 900 presses come with the automation features, run speeds and high quality output with which printers in the 40" market are extremely familiar. 

"The bottom line," sums up Lapinski, "is the bottom line - how all of this adds up to lower cost-per-copy for MAN Roland 900 large format owners every day - and ultimately, faster ROI."
