ROLAND Gets University Honors

Press release from the issuing company

One of the biggest government printers in Saudi Arabia has added to its vast stable of manroland technology with a new eight-colour ROLAND 700 HiPrint perfecting press as it battles to meet the boom in learning.

The printing house of Al-Imam Mohammad Ibn Saud Islamic University (IMBSU) is a government print shop serving the university’s demands for literature and student books.

It is a loyal manroland customer and now has eight ROLAND presses.

IMBSU has more than 150 staff and aspires to be a world-class model in learning, education and scientific research based on Islamic values and teachings. The university, which is composed of 11 colleges, has been expanding continually since it was established in 1974.

But its success raises other issues. How to meet the rising demand for teaching materials and study books? How to ensure consistent premium print quality and stable production for every job? How to reduce the make-ready time and increase productivity?

The answer - the ROLAND 700 HiPrint perfecting press which, they say, exceeds all expectations.

Ibrahim Al Moheimeed, Printing Press Manager of IMBSU, confirms: “It is all because of the short make-ready time, consistent premium print quality, low waste rate, and the high efficiency.”

Thanks to the excellent support from Alkhorayef Printing Solutions, manroland’s local partner in the Saudi Arabia market, the solid cooperation which has lasted for more than a decade continues


The ROLAND 700 HiPrint that IMBSU purchased is one of the most popular presses in the commercial printing and packaging industries, especially designed for the high quality printing production.

Thanks to its features and advantages, such as perfect ink distribution, flat sheet travel, precise register, smooth and gentle delivery as well as the inline enhancement, it can ensure the highest print quality and at the same time maintain the high-speed printing.

What’s more, the ROLAND 700’s overall sturdy design, QuickChange functions and the flexibility in formats, can significantly improve its productivity, reduce the production costs, and achieve higher margins. 

Thus, the overall competitiveness of the printers can be enhanced. For the printing house of IMBSU, this feature means they can meet the daily challenges from increasing orders.
