Royale Print & Packaging Buys Roland 700
Darthmouth, NS-based Royale Print & Packaging, the largest folding carton converter in the Atlantic, has installed a new Roland 700 HiPrint press. The press has six print units and two aqueous and UV coaters.
Royale Print & Packaging is over 100 years old and primarily prints folding cartons and labels for the Eastern Canadian and U.S. markets.
“Food packaging customers have very short turn-around times and tight deadlines to prevent spoilage or expiration and to meet market demands,” said Royale Print & Packaging Operations Manager Jan Riber Hansen. “The printing process must meet those deadlines even on JIT shipments.”
To allow for future expandability, Royale Print and Packaging decided to prepare the press for UV inks and interdeck curing stations.
The company says the new HiPrint press is running two shifts during months of average production levels, but it expects to run the press 24/7 with three shifts during months of higher demand. Production staff from the company flew to manroland’s training facility in Westmont, Illinois, in preparation for the press and also received on-site training after the equipment was installed.
