EVOLUTION’s next destination: Adriatic region

The Manroland Sheetfed EVOLUTION is going places. More than a year since it was launched, this next-generation press has been imported by printers in many regions worldwide. Its next destination: Europe’s Adriatic region.

Znamgraf, a Serbian printer specializing in cardboard packaging products, has become the latest convert to the award-winning Manroland Sheetfed EVOLUTION. Based in Čačak, Znamgraf is an established printer whose customers include many reputable companies throughout Europe. It offers the complete package in packaging printing – from conceptualization to print finishing.

To deliver the best results for customers, management decided to purchase an additional printing press.

After thorough research, numerous tests and visits to press manufacturers, Znamgraf opted for the newest and most innovative machine in the B1 format on the market: the six-color ROLAND 706 LV EVOLUTION.

The EVOLUTION, the first of its kind in the entire Adriatic region, should be up and running at the Znamgraf facility by September.

The EVOLUTION has all the latest features: a new head and infeed system, new dampening units with seamless delta-effect, improved delivery, machine drive with the newest AC motor drive system, TripleFlow inking unit, printing speed of 16,000 to 18,000 sheets per hour, and user-friendly console with touch-screen control panel.

It also comes with a free two-year subscription of the new ProServ 360 Performance, a customer service and support program which includes proactive monitoring of the machine. “We are uncompromising when it comes to the important properties of the printing press – top print quality, cost-effectiveness, ergonomics and production efficiency,’’ says Znamgraf owner and president, Mr. Zoran Špajaković.

“We have recognized all these properties in Manroland Sheetfed’s newest press, the EVOLUTION. “We are proud to be the first regional owners of this modern machine, and we are confident that we will be able to strengthen our position at the top of the printing industry in the region.’’

Znamgraf director Milos Špajaković is firm in his belief that the EVOLUTION is the “best choice” and that its performance in the coming months will take the company to greater heights. “We look forward to the new cooperation with Manroland Sheetfed,” he adds.

Manroland Sheetfed is also proud of the newly signed deal and is looking forward to future cooperation with Znamgraf. The EVOLUTION is the second brand-new industrial machine in B1 format acquired by a Serbian printer this year – a recognition of Manroland Sheetfed’s superior cutting-edge technology and solutions.
