MAN Roland full range of advanced technology and services at Graphics Canada
Press release from the issuing company
November 7, 2007 -- Exhibit 3640 -- MAN Roland's full range of advanced technology and services for the Canadian printer will be the subject of the company's exhibit at Graphics Canada, which takes place in Toronto, November 8-10. Visitors to booth 3640 will be able to get first-hand information on the entire range of MAN Roland sheetfed and web presses, including the new ROLAND 700 HiPrint and ROLAND 700 DirectDrive. MAN Roland's printservices and printcom support and supply capabilities will also be on the agenda.
"The exhibit will be a valuable resource for Canadian printers who want to improve their competitive edge," says Vince Lapinski, CEO of MAN Roland Inc. "We can provide Canadian printers with everything they need to increase their profitability, including their choice of two new 41-inch presses."
The new ROLAND 700 HiPrint and the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive will be officially introduced to the Canadian market at the MAN Roland exhibit. The ROLAND 700 HiPrint is the mainstream choice for the majority of commercial printing facilities, while the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive is designed for printers who require advanced makeready performance and long perfecting capabilities.
The "Hi" in HiPrint stands for high quality, and the new press line can be equipped with MAN Roland's exclusive array of inline quality control enhancements. It can also be configured with any of MAN Roland's unique inline advancements that integrate the application of special effects into the printing process, providing added value without adding press time
The second new press is already a success story. This past summer, the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive received a 2007 InterTech? Technology Award from PIA/GATF. DirectDrive equips each printing unit's plate cylinder with its own motor. Isolating the plate cylinder from the press' main drive allows a number of time-consuming makeready chores to be completed simultaneously. When all of the savings are factored in, DirectDrive enables sheetfed pressrooms to slice their makereadies by as much as 60%.
MAN Roland is also exhibiting the concept of "total support for the life of your press," featuring its benchmark service, parts and support programs at Graphics Canada.
The integrated offerings — called printcom and printservices — bundle all the benefits Canadian printers need to keep their pressrooms profitable now and in the future. Working together, printcom and printservices cover every operational contingency including: certified pressroom parts and supplies, training, maintenance solutions, emergency response, upgrades, remote control repairs, and business-building enhancements.
"With printservices and printcom supporting them 24/7, Canadian printers can run their operations confidently," says Paul Tasker, General Manager of MAN Roland Canada. "Visitors to Graphics Canada will find more information on all our latest innovations at the MAN Roland exhibit."
