More and more sheet-fed presses are being ordered from MAN Roland in novel configurations, new formats, or with special performance features, the company reports.
Druckerei Persiehl, in Norderstedt, will mainly be producing packaging on the six colour Roland 900 in XXL format 7b to be delivered at the end of 2004. This will be the first format XXL press in the world equipped with two coating modules. Persiehl will be using it for enhancement with UV, dispersion, gold and metallic coatings. The company is confident that in-line coating plus high speed makereadies and production will double the capacity it currently has with 10-year old technology.
Another world’s first – this time for packaging printing – is currently being installed at Leunisman, in Hanover. This is an eight colour Roland 700 LTTPLTTLV which has a flexo printing unit and two drying towers in front of the first offset printing unit.
There is a single-drum sheet turning station after the second offset unit, and after the eighth unit a twin coater with two interdeck dryers and additional end-of-press dryers in the extended delivery. Leunisman will use this 35m length press primarily for high grade cosmetics and confectionery packaging.
