Versatile, flexible, the highest print quality, and adaptable to a very difficult building situation: the new press that has been printing since January 2011 at the new premises of Bilnet Printing Systems in Istanbul had to meet these requirements. manroland provided the right solution with the proven ROTOMAN commercial web press.
The Bilnet Printing Systems printing company was only established four years ago but has grown rapidly and is affiliated with the Bilfen private schools in Istanbul. Osman Öztürk is the founder and owner of these private schools. He also owns the printing company which is managed by his son ?smail Cem Öztürk. In order to react more flexibly to customer requirements, the owner decided to purchase a new commercial web press from manroland. At around the same time, in summer 2010, the company invested in a 17,000 square meters building at a new location in Istanbul that now employs 180 people.
Outstanding local support
The new 16-page ROTOMAN has been running in the modern pressroom since January this year. “We are very pleased with the compact manroland press that supplements our machine park perfectly,” reports Osman Öztürk. “The good relationship and support with Pasifik Trading we have enjoyed for many years and the impressive ROTOMAN reference installations were a major factor in our buying decision because we are newcomers to webfed printing. We have absolute trust in the excellent service and support of manroland’s Sales & Service Partner for all of our existing equipment.” Safak Okaygün of Pasifik Trading emphasizes: “This is the first new manroland commercial web press in Turkey, although some used machines have been installed. We see this sale as a means to open doors for further business.” The ROTOMAN will mainly produce high-quality publications, inserts and brochures, including the monthly magazine SKYLIFE for Turkish Airlines with a run length of around 300,000 copies.
The new ROTOMAN has a maximum speed of 50,000 cylinder rph and a cut-off length of 620 millimeters. It is a single-web press with four printing units, a dryer, a folder with a quarter-fold, and can also produce double parallel and delta fold signatures for maximum flexibility.
