Manroland Sheetfed this September plans to introduce an updated R700 HiPrint press. The first generation of the machine was introduced in the mid-1990s.
The company states the new changes to the press for September 2014 include an increased speed to 17,200 sheets per hour. Manroland Sheetfed is to also present an update for its InlineFoiler with indexing technology. Available for the HiPint and HiPrint HS (high speed) presses, this cold-foil process allows printing of any colour on the metal particles.
This September, Manroland Sheetfed will also introduce LEC-UV drying to the R700 HiPrint press. This is a UV module for low-energy curing. Manroland Sheetfed plans to install the updated R700 HiPrint into its Chicago-area demonstration centre before the end of September.
