MAN Roland partners with POWERVAR to stabilize pressroom electricity

Press release from the issuing company

Westmont, Illinois — MAN Roland has joined forces with electrical quality expert POWERVAR to develop a device that automatically stabilizes and purifies pressroom power to help ensure that presses aren’t affected by electrical spikes, surges and fluctuations. “The inconsistent quality of the electricity supplied to pressrooms has a negative impact on press performance and could damage the sophisticated electronics that control today’s machines,” says Juerg Spittler, Vice President of Business Development, Sheetfed Operations, MAN Roland Inc. “That’s why we’ve teamed up with POWERVAR to create the first pressroom-specific solution.” Called MAN Roland EnergyLink, the new product connects between a printing facility’s power source and its presses to purge the electrical supply of any anomalies before they can affect production. “EnergyLink was developed after years of on-site customer research and operating experience,” notes Dennis Ver Mulm, Vice President and Director of Marketing at POWERVAR. “In addition to being designed to withstand even worst case power disturbances such as lightning, EnergyLink is engineered with noise filters, surge diverters and isolation transformers to ensure that the press is completely protected, even from the electrical pollution created by other electrical loads in the facility.” Spittler points out that EnergyLink connects with presses made by any manufacturer: “Printers can’t afford slowdowns or downtime caused by electrical disturbances. That’s why MAN Roland took the lead in developing this quick-installing, easy-to-use technology.” “You wouldn’t think of operating your computer without a surge suppressor,” Ver Mulm adds. “For many of the same reasons, printers shouldn’t run their presses without MAN Roland’s EnergyLink.” More information about EnergyLink can be obtained by contacting MAN Roland at 630.920.2000.
