manroland’s DirectDrive Demonstrates ‘State of the Art’ at Open House

Szolwinski maintains a strong interest in advanced printing technologies and large format printing. The event provided him the chance for the first time to see manroland’s Print Technology Center and the Roland 900 press. What attracted his attention was the capability and technology of the Roland 700 DirectDrive.

“It was my first visit to Westmont and we liked what we saw with all of the plate changes during the live demonstration,” said Szolwinski, who attended with Scott Anders, Kubin-Nicholson’s Technical Director. “The DirectDrive press is perfect for short runs and we were interested in seeing it because that’s the kind of work we do. We were impressed with how fast it got up to color and into registration.”
