New ROLAND 706 LV to boost production capacity of Saudi printer
Two decades after getting its first ROLAND press, Al Jawad Carton & Packaging Factory has again invested in Manroland technology for an additional boost to its production capacity. The company purchased a ROLAND 706 LV with InlineFoiler to boost productivity, keep production costs to a minimum and add value to its line of printed products.
With a growing list of customers and a continuous flow of production orders, Saudi Arabian printer Al Jawad required a press to cut make-ready times and waste, whilst maintaining high standards in print quality.
Al Jawad operates in the city of Al-Hassa and installed their first ROLAND 706 LV in 1994. Established in 1983 by the Al Jawad Group, the company specializes in packaging printing, including cartons, self-adhesive labels, stickers and paper bags. Operating such a successful business through the years, Al Jawad continues to look for ways to give its customers top-quality printing and service at the most reasonable price. No wonder it attaches great importance to cutting-edge printing technology.
“With the installation of the new ROLAND 706 LV, we will be able to maximize customer satisfaction because of the shorter lead time and premium print quality,’’ said Mr. Ahmed Jawad Al-Khars, General Manager and owner of Al Jawad.
“The latest InlineFoiler with indexing function gives us further possibilities of providing customers with attractive enhancements on the printed sheet but at a lower cost.” added Mr. Al-Khars.
The InlineFoiler on the ROLAND 706 LV is the hero in this set-up. It enables the sheetfed offset to transfer foil to a substrate and then overprint it – all of it taking place inline. What’s more, the latest indexing function offers up to 62% potential cold foil saving according to different job types. A remarkable improvement in terms of cost saving!
With the “OnePass” production philosophy, the ROLAND 700 ensures stability when applying enhancements or embellishments to the printing product, such as spot coatings and varnishes, there is greater room for creativity. The end result, of course, is an attractive, eye-catching product that truly satisfies print customers.
“Premium value-added service from Manroland Sheetfed and its local partner Alkhorayef Printing Solutions (Manroland Sheetfed’s sales and service partner in Saudi Arabia) was also one of the most critical factors in our investment decision making process. Undoubtedly we have been satisfied over the past years”, commented by Mr. Ahmed Jawad Al-Khars.
