Sheetfed Summit 2011

How must print position itself in a multimedia world? Very simple: as a vibrant and creative industry with virtually unlimited possibilities. Print works, and manroland is to show groundbreaking solutions to achieve this efficiently. The Sheetfed Summit 2011 will focus on Value Added Printing for improved business and production processes, as well as fascinating print products. The event will showcase innovations in automation, product variability, sustainable production, networking, services, consumable materials, and consulting.

Less than 150 sheets until the first OK sheet, automated job changeover, integrated data handling, Web-to-Print, a 64-page signature in one pass through the press, and inline enhancement: manroland is to demonstrate how powerful offset printing is in 2011.

With new products like autoprint smart, InlineColorPilot, InlineInspector with PDF comparison, ColorPilot smart and other groundbreaking solutions, manroland will also show how costs can be further reduced, delivery times shortened, flexibility increased, and daily output boosted. Numerous live demonstrations await the participants, along with clear presentations of the benefits and intensive technical discussions with experts and colleagues. A Roland 900, XXL format 8 perfecting press, a 10-color Roland 700 DirectDrive with autoprint smart, a Roland 700 HiPrint and ROLAND 500 both equipped with InlineFoiler Prindor, a Roland 200 with High Pile delivery, a special four-color Roland 700 HiPrint, and a Roland 50 with an envelope feeder will all be in production.

Best of both worlds
For the first time, manroland will present – integrated into graphics workflows – two high-productivity Océ inkjet printing systems for digital webfed printing. Inkjet systems, with their flexible production and individualization strengths, are increasingly becoming an alternative in both the business models and machine parks of graphics industry printing houses. Gerd Finkbeiner, manroland CEO, notes: “We are showing how inkjet printing systems supplement industrial offset printing. We are not however placing our faith in insular solutions, but in integrated workflows. In our role as front runners, we and Océ have ambitious aims. We want successful customers who are participating in the dynamic growth of digital print production—and we are committed to supplying them with solutions that are at the same time groundbreaking and future-proof.”
