PhotoCraft Adds manroland Roland 700 Sheetfed Press
Upgrading to the newer press technology wasn’t a strain on PhotoCraft’s current workforce. Dan Hunter confirmed the value of manroland’s extensive training program. “The learning curve for our press crews to update from older technologies wasn’t as steep as I thought it was going to be. Our trainer from manroland did such a good job, our crew was able to make the change without a problem,” stated Hunter.
Since the installation of the press in the summer of 2010, PhotoCraft’s production volume has already increased substantially. “Downloading the information from prepress through the printnet system has been a major upgrade for us,” said Hunter, “And with the decreased make ready times for wash-ups and plate changes, the press has made dramatic improvements to our productivity.”
