MAN Roland Urges Open House Visitors to See the 900 Large Format Press
WESTMONT, IL—04/21/08—“MAN Roland has been a leader in large-format presses for three-quarters of a century,” asserts MAN Roland CEO Vince Lapinski. “It’s over 75 years since we introduced the Roland Ultra in 1933; and each new generation along the way has gone far beyond simply making bigger machines.”
“At our Westmont Graphic Demonstration Center (near Chicago, IL) on June 23rd and 24th,” he continues, “ under the theme of Make No Small Plans, Open House visitors can see firsthand the latest results of things we’ve learned — not the least of which are better ways to help printers translate high technology into bottom line returns by applying the right solution.
“In a marketplace overrun with 40˝ machines, there’s no question that large format 900s offer printers an alternative to differentiate their business, and to expand with POP displays, packaging and additional general commercial applications.
“But bigger is really better when — and only when — your press comes with the designed-in systems to turn those large format sheets into faster, higher payback on your bottom line,” Lapinski emphasizes. “And no other large format press can match the output quality, automated speed and efficiency of our 900s.”
Demos will show how exclusive MAN Roland 900 features deliver time- and cost-saving benefits.
Open House visitors can observe advanced MAN Roland systems such as:
• printnet Press Manager — unmatched operating, workflow integration and automation for faster make readies and more.
• Power Plate Loading, which loads/clamps plates in less than a minute per unit.
• Double-sized impression cylinder that reduces stress on sheets, helps ensure superior contact and print quality.
• Automated blanket impression-cylinder adjustment for substrates from thin papers up to 1.2 mm/0.040” carton stocks.
Plus MAN Roland’s exclusive remote diagnostics capabilities via TelePresence™ — which enables factory and service specialists to monitor press activities, troubleshoot problems, maximize press performance and uptime.
