Ground-breaking large format offset press enhances Evolution family
Manroland Sheetfed launched the latest member of its benchmark Evolution family – the ROLAND 900 Evolution in late 2020, further underlining its position as a world leader in large format press manufacture
Bearing all the hallmarks of innovation, productivity and quality now synonymous with the Evolution name, the ROLAND 900 Evolution offers a wealth of automation technology to deliver cost & energy savings for printers, along with ever faster make-ready times.
Among these are Autoprint, providing uninterrupted productivity from pre-press to post press at the touch of a button and InLine ColorPilot 3.0 – the fastest, most efficient and most accurate color measurement technology available, measuring densitometrical and colorimetric values in a single pass.
New Triple Flow inking technology addresses specific challenges for large format print, providing three separate inker running modes, while the AC Drive promises annual savings of up to 10,000 kWh – or 8 years over the lifetime of the press.
With its host of complementary, innovative technologies, the ROLAND 900 Evolution pushes the boundaries for what is possible in large format offset printing.
Commenting on the ROLAND 900 Evolution, Krzysztof Pietrzak, Managing Director,
Manroland Polska Sp. z.o.o. said:
“Our quest to deliver value to our customers is an ongoing mission which guides everything we do. We were immensely proud to have launched the ROLAND 900 Evolution because it breaks new ground and opened a new world of possibilities for our customers”
We are strong in this sector of the market, and this was a natural next step in the development of the product line using the proven ROLAND 700 Evolution platform and going to the larger format. We have already installed ROLAND 900 Evolution presses globally which includes Poland, Italy, USA, China, Mexico, South Africa and others”
Manroland also introduced two new 700 additions to the Manroland Evolution family. One is a high-speed model, the 700 Evolution Speed, rated at 20,000sph and aimed at longer run applications. The other is a more stripped-down model for those who do not need the level of technology that comes with the 700 Evolution Elite. This is the 700 Evolution Lite, configured as a standard machine and priced to appeal to those wanting a new press, with the fast make-ready benefits of a new machine, but without some of the bells and whistles that can add to the price.
