Confidence stems from advanced printing technology

Winning recognition for its top-quality products is not enough for multi-awarded Dongguan Zhouquan Printing Co., Ltd.

Determined to provide customers with even better packaging products and services, Zhouquan Printing recently acquired a brand-new 6-color ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION 3B plus format with UV system press from Manroland Sheetfed.

Constant improvement is a goal for the company, which has been recognized several times as an "advanced enterprise" and "excellent enterprise."

According to Mr. Liang Zhouquan, the company’s owner, Zhouquan Printing has been providing customer-centered service since its establishment in 2003. "Putting our customers' interests and requirements above anything else, we deeply understand their needs and try our best to meet them,” Mr. Liang adds.

"Premium quality, competitive price” is the chief marketing strategy of Zhouquan Printing. And this has been backed by advanced, world-class production equipment and a standardized management system. Together they ensure premium print quality.

For nearly two decades Zhouquan Printing has been providing high-quality packaging printing service, including colour boxes for different industries such as electronics, lighting, daily necessities, toys, clothing, handbags, footwear and woodwork.

The new 6-color ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION 3B plus format with UV system press recently acquired by the company reflects both Zhouquan Printing's customer-centered operation principle and marketing strategy.

"The new machine with new technologies has significantly improved our efficiency, quality and confidence," Mr. Liang says.

The ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION has been widely recognized by packaging printers across the globe since its launch because of its excellent performance in terms of print quality, production cost and productivity.

The following are the highlights of three of its outstanding functions:

TripleFlow

As one of the standard configurations of the ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION, the TripleFlow inking unit offers three different ways to transport ink from ink fountain to plate cylinder, arranging the best inking amount depending on different graphics so as to ensure the best print quality. Moreover, the smart software manages the inking amount during the start of a new job and job changes to quickly reach the water ink balance. So apart from reducing the waste sheets significantly, it also increases productivity.

Fast Plate Changing Technology

Simultaneous plate loading (SPL) supports all printing units in synchronized plate change. It takes only one minute to get all the plate changing done regardless of the number of printing units. The blanket and impression cylinder can be washed automatically and simultaneously as the plate change. This significantly increases efficiency.

Moreover, DirectDrive can significantly improve the efficiencies of make-ready and job changes with its automatic function of simultaneous plate changing, cleaning and job preset, as well as its unique independent circle registers adjustment of the plate cylinder and the printing length correction function.

3B plus format

Compared with the 3B format, the 3B plus format (1060 mm x 780 mm) is only 20 mm more in length and 40 mm more in width. However, the productivity of one run could be increased by up to 50% depending on the different print jobs. The reason lies in the way of imposition. Under hypothetically extreme circumstances, a certain print job is allowed to print only one page on one sheet because of the size. However, if the sheet size is 40mm wider, two pages can be done on one sheet. Thus, its productivity and the yields of the substrates could be increased by 100%. More importantly, it saves material cost and time. Overall productivity is increased and lead time is shortened. So 3B plus format is particularly suitable for packaging printers like Zhouquan Printing.

“These advanced technologies not only improve our quality and efficiency, but also enhance our confidence," says Mr. Liang. "At the same time, they help us to win the trust of more and more customers. So our business is thriving."

Zhouquan Printing has recently introduced a brand new 6-colour ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION 3B plus format with UV system press.
