Press release from the issuing company
Coating has now become almost standard with 3B format presses, and meanwhile demands for print enhancement with smaller formats are increasing as well. As a result, manroland now offers the ROLAND 200 (52/74) High Pile as a four-color version with a coating module.
With this new development, manroland has found a clever and extremely practical solution. The ROLAND InlineCoater smart, winner of the 2009 German Printing Industry Innovation Award, is integrated in the extended delivery module of the four-color ROLAND 200 High Pile. This makes it unnecessary to switch from printing to coating in the printing unit. The extended delivery can also accommodate the ROLAND SelectDryer IR/TL-TL-TL which facilitates the drying process. Thicker coating layers can be applied with an anilox roller (for example with a scoop volume of eleven cubic centimeters) to enhance the print product. The coating unit has an easily accessible, closed chambered doctor blade system and can achieve up to 70 gloss points depending on the substrate.
The ROLAND 200 High Pile with an integrated coating module and extended delivery opens up a wide range of new possibilities for printers, ranging from occasional simple applications of protective, matt or glossy dispersion coatings all the way up to twin effects on a five-color press. In addition, printers can offer their customers perforation, punching or embossing, which can be integrated in the delivery module as alternatives. By setting themselves apart from digital printing and offering a variety of additional value-adding applications, they can look forward to gaining new customers.
