manroland to Highlight DirectDrive

September 08, 2009
Roland 700 DirectDrive
Unveiled at drupa 2008 last year in Germany, manroland's 40-inch ROLAND 700 DirectDrive press will receive much of the company's attention this weekend at PRINT 09. The DirectDrive integration into manroland’s 40-inch press is naturally geared for commercial printers completing numerous shot-run jobs per shift. manroland suggests the technology is also well suited for companies regularly using long perfectors.

Pertaining to its name, directly driven plate cylinders permit all printing plates to be changed simultaneously, as each printing unit is equipped with a fully automated plate changing system. The company also provides optional QuickChange tools, such as QuickChange Job that begins a makeready sequence, while QuickChange Air stores the press' air settings.

manroland will also continue its focus on large-format sheetfed presses, particularly around the ROLAND 900 XXL that is available in four formats: 7 (1,120 x 1,620 millimeters), 7B (1,200 x 1,620), 7B-plus (1,260 x 1,620 ) and 8 (1,300 x 1,850). The press can reach speeds of up to 12,000 sheets per hour in its largest format size, while the format 7B-plus format hits a maximum speed of 13,000 sheets per hour. Given its size, the machine relies heavily on the company’s QuickChange makeready features, such as the QuickChange Coating system for changing from UV to dispersion coating. The company also points to its QuickChange Clamp and QuickChange Surface technologies as being particularly suitable for its 900 XXL press.

Print 09While at PRINT 09, manroland also plans to highlight its PRINTVALUE concept, which now encompasses software and services like printcom, printadvice, printservices and printnet.
