Ohio’s SouthPrint starts up its new ROLAND 700 six-color with inline coating

Press release from the issuing company

SouthPrint in Columbus, Ohio has begun running its new ROLAND 700 41-inch press from MAN Roland. The system is configured with six colors, an in-line coating and an extended delivery. “We tested and researched presses from the top three manufacturers, and found that the ROLAND 700 is capable of producing the finest dot and solids in our market,” says SouthPrint owner and president Tod Haman. “Other presses can’t come close to printing the dot that the ROLAND 700 does. So with the ROLAND 700, we can offer our customers and prospective customers unsurpassed print quality.” SouthPrint also runs two earlier model 40-inch presses from MAN Roland — a six-color and a four-color. SouthPrint’s high-end fashion work includes retail store point of purchase (POP) signage as well as collateral material. The ROLAND 700’s ability to handle a wide range of substrates, up to 40 pt, will have a positive impact for those applications, as will its short run capabilities. “They expect very quick turnaround on print projects and excellent reproduction of flesh-tones of models and accuracy in matching the colors of their products,” Haman says. Press checks will be faster as well, according to the SouthPrint owner: “The MAN Roland will speed up our press OKs since we expect to get up to color much faster. We won’t have to use waste stock, and we will be able to produce multiple forms due to faster plate changes.”
