manroland web systems: Expanding its Footprint in the Print Industry
In an effort to listen to the needs of printers, and respond to the trends in the industry, manroland web systems (Booth 1067) has expanded its portfolio outside of the traditional offerings in the web offset arena. Experts will be on-hand to discuss the company’s newest strategies to make customers successful.
VARIOMAN is the newly launched package printing press from manroland web systems. Created for film packaging applications, it produces printed films, and offers the highest level of automation with fully networked production, service, and maintenance packages. Modular offset printing units offer the highest level of product flexibility. And due to the use of offset printing plates, cost savings of up to 25% can be quickly realized.
Digital finishing systems
With more than 20 successful installations worldwide, manroland web systems’ FoldLine, the flexible-format folding and finishing line, and FormerLine, the book-block finishing line for digital inkjet, continue to break new ground in the world of digital inkjet. These systems can finish a wide variety of products at in-line speeds up to 1,000 fph, but also print micro-jobs or “book-of-1” jobs efficiently and profitably.
Integration & automation
With the combined family of “plug-ins” offered by manroland web systems for pressrooms, the intelligently networked pressroom concept has now become a tangible reality. WorkflowBridge, the JDF-based fully automated pre-setting and processing program, along with dynamic job management from MasterQ, and automatic imposing from Imposer, create an easy-to-use system, unlimited by product formats or run lengths.
With manroland web systems’ PECOM-X automation and press controls software, startup and cutoff waste, registration, color, density, dampening, and tension control can be managed effectively. These tools create an unbeatable combination of automation, speed, and quality when combined with web offset presses. The retrofit of PECOM-X on non-manroland presses breathes new life into existing press equipment, adding productivity, and efficiency for future success.
