Leading book printer maintains its lead in the Adriatic

Leading book printer MA-TISK, located in Maribor, Slovenia, has just invested in its third ROLAND 904 XXL large format printing press equipped with a wide range of automatic functions.

MA-TISK's commitment to printing is evidenced by the substantial investment it has made in the latest, state-of-the-art machinery, to produce the finest quality industrial printed books and maintain its top-tier position in large format industrial printing.

The new press will be equipped with all the latest printing technologies including TripleFlow Inking, Low Coverage Stabilization (LCS) and a wide range of efficiency enhancements such as QuickStart Plus, QuickChange Color Smart, ColorPilot and Simultaneous Plate Loading (SPL).

Mr Marko Tomaževič, General Director and co-owner of the group, said:

“We must respond to the increasing demands for high quality, capability and delivery speed. This is our third machine of its kind from Manroland, and we are confident the new investment will help us meet customers' expectations. We are well known in the book printing sector and proud many respected book publishers throughout the EU are already printing with us. As well as this investment we are also investing in a print finishing department. Our entire group, which also includes a paper mill and other graphic consumables/machinery representing-businesses, is confident this new press will ensure we are at the forefront of book printing”.

Managing Director of MA-TISK, Mr. Stane Novak, explained:

“We are happy with the performance of the two existing Roland 904 XXL presses, so decided to invest again is this type of press. The new press will be equipped with simultaneous (fully automatic) plate changing, an in-line colour measurement system, automatic washing devices, automatic QuickChange solutions and many other automatic functions. We are looking forward to printing on this latest-generation investment”.

Dr. Mario Barišić, Managing Director of Manroland Adriatic added:

"We are delighted one of our biggest partners in high quality book printing, MA-TISK and their mother company PAPYRUM, have again opted for a ROLAND 904 XXL press based on their positive experience with the same model printing press. This is testament to our longstanding partnership and proves their confidence in Manroland's large format XXL presses and of course our back-up services"
