Winning Finnish packaging printer invests in Evolution

Press release from the issuing company

Why a leading Finnish packaging printer chose the new ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION

It's not easy to land a WorldStar award, but Oy Orapac Ab is no ordinary packaging printer. 

Nowhere was this more evident than at the WorldStar 2016 event where the World Packaging Organization jury praised Oy Orapac's VIESER ONE floor drain trap pack for its "easy assembly, visual attractiveness and cost efficiency." 

Such awards speak volumes, Oy Orapac Ab’s ingenuity, dedication in the pursuit of product excellence and willingness to push the boundaries of what is possible in printing is evident.

Founded in 1990, Oy Orapac Ab specializes in designing and manufacturing a wide variety of corrugated packages, mini cartons and ordinary corrugated cartons. Mr. Fredric Tidström, the company’s owner and Managing Director says the key to their success is innovation, flexibility and environmental responsibility.

“Well-designed packaging can arouse interest and make the brand stand out with high-quality packaging communicating the company's appreciation towards customers. Well-designed and innovative packaging protects the product and communicates good usability, functionality and diversity. Hence, we use only high-quality, consumer-friendly and green printing materials to ensure the distinctive packages are worthy of our customers’ products and corporate image.”

Mr Tidström went on to say his company takes extra measures to provide on-time delivery and to adhere to globally recognised environmental standards.

This is why the company recently invested in Manroland's latest technology, the ROLAND 705 3B LV EVOLUTION with printcom® services.

The Evolution offers high efficiency, premium print quality and environmental protection; and with the help of the new press, Oy Orapac can turn its creative ideas into reality faster. 

Features such as Simultaneous Plate Loading (SPL) significantly reduce make-ready time and the InlineColorPilot ensures color quality.

Mr Tidström: "InlineColorPilot measuring will improve conformity and consistent print quality. The risk of misprint and human errors are minimized”.

The InlineColorPilot is the market leader in speed and precision when it comes to measuring and controlling color. That’s because it can measure ink density at full production speed, so there’s no need to pull sheets out for inspection - the print control strip on the sheet is measured with precision.

Manroland's printcom® division provides the customers with extensively tested, certified and process-compliant system components to further refine and optimize their printing systems. The use of expertly produced, consistently manufactured parts can significantly cut wastage and save energy cost.

Additionally printcom printing supplies are in line with EU RoHS and REACH environmental standards. They do not contain any harmful ingredients and can effectively reduce the use of isopropyl alcohol and the emission of VOC.

“It offers us the possibility of choosing UV-varnish if a more advanced finish is required,” Mr Tidström says.

The Oy Orapac Ab owner also commented on the quick response and professionalism of the Manroland Nordic Finland Team. Currently undergoing commissioning the new press is expected to start production mid May 2017.
