Boosting capacity at Palladio East
Manroland successfully commission a second ROLAND 700 Evolution press with coating unit at Palladio East, a leading Serbian print house and boosting production capacity to new levels.
Manroland has been there for Palladio East right from the very start when Palladio East began their printing operations with two ROLAND 700 HiPrint machines. In 2016, to expand its business further the company invested in an additional ROLAND 700 HiPrint. Further investment was made In 2018 when a fourth Manroland press was purchased - the latest ROLAND 700 Evolution with five-color units, coating module and many new automation features.
Today Palladio East is synonymous with a high level of expertise in the Adriatic packaging market. The expectations of clients have grown together with the increase in total production volume. Mr. Pera Todorović, general director of Palladio East said: "We had to quickly respond to market demands for quality, efficiency and delivery times."
As a result, Palladio East purchased a six-color ROLAND 700 Evolution press several months ago, and in full production today.
Palladio East has always placed its focus on improving production performance by adopting the very latest sheetfed offset innovations, this tradition continues with their latest investment.
The new ROLAND 700 Evolution is equipped with dynamic inking control including TripleFlow, LCS (Low Color Stabilization), QuickChange ColorSmart and ColorPilot to automatically process control capabilities such as QuickStart Plus and Simultaneous Plate Loading.
Palladio East’s technical director, Mr. Nenad Janošev said:
"This is a fantastic 3B format machine The press has all the important elements of mechanical, electronic and programmatic automation. After installing the machine and starting production, we have further plans for other phases of automation and connecting all existing machines to a unique workflow."
"After deciding to make a new investment, we thoroughly checked out the capabilities of other major printing machine producers. When we saw all the features of the latest Evolution, there was no competition. That's why we decided once again to invest in Manroland technology. We think the new Evolution, in terms of quality and efficiency, is the best solution on the market today in 3B format."
