Building a centenary printing brand name for Xing’an

Shandong Xing’an Color Printing & Packaging Co., Ltd. introduced a brand new ROLAND 706 LV Evolution with 3B plus format

Founded in 1992, Shandong Xing’an Color Printing & Packaging Co., Ltd. is a private corporation specializing in design, color printing and color packaging with a broad product range covering high end brochures, books, magazines, calendars, stickers and various color packaging boxes, cartons, gift boxes and paper handbags. Over the years, the company has provided the high quality products for both domestic and foreign customers with the world’s advanced printing technologies. It has received not only the high recognition from the customers, but also numerous awards. After more than three decades of steady development, the company has grown into the leading color packaging printer in the south of Shandong Province with the strong commitment of building a well-known brand name in the packaging printing industry in Shandong Province.

According to Ms. Yan Tingying, the company’s managing director, the company pays attention to not only the advanced technologies, but also the personnel training. Its high quality management personnel and skilled operation technicians provide the customers with the excellent services ranging from the creative designs in pre-press to the post-press processing. «Our company’s management philosophy is to seek credibility from quality, and to seek efficiency from management. Since the establishment of our company, we have fully implemented the quality management and passed the IS9001:200 international quality management system certification. We are building a centenary printing brand name for Xing’an with quality», Ms. Yan said.

In order to better realize the company’s vision of building a centenary printing brand name for Xing’an with quality, the company has recently introduced a brand new ROLAND 706 LV Evolution with 3B plus format to comprehensively improve its print quality and productivity, and at the same time to lower the total production cost. By now the new machine has been successfully installed and officially put into production. It is mainly responsible for printing color boxes, color cartons, alcohol boxes, and packages for the dairy products.

With the futuristic design and various innovative technologies, ROLAND 700 EVOLUTION aims to significantly improve the production efficiency, operation, and print quality. In the following, four of its innovative technologies which help the company to increase its productivity and print quality will be highlighted.

«Visual» Operating System

Based on the concept of «visualization», the operating system integrates various adjustment functions such as ink key control, registration adjustment, ink roller and ink flow adjustment onto the touch- screen, which provides the operators with the more ergonomic interface and more convenience in operation. In addition, coupled with the integrated job index function, the productivity of operators can be increased to a very large extent.


The feeder head is strengthened and fixed, which reduces both the risk of downtime of the feeder head and vibration. Adjustments can be done without the use of tools, which greatly improves the efficiency of operators. Furthermore, when printing thinner substrates, the sheet transport stability is greatly enhanced, and the risk of downtime is lowered. In addition, the automatic paper skew correction is carried out through the sheet transfer suction belt. It is hard to cause deformation when printing on a lightweight substrate thanks to the concave design of the suction belt.

Inking and Dampening Units

The unique features include TripleFlow inking unit, intelligent speed compensation for inking and dampening units, and effective anti-ghosting solutions. Moreover, the TripleFlow inker delivers more control than any other comparable technology on the market. With three different ink distributions at the push of a button, it offers high color consistency during the whole print run and drastic savings in waste. The reverse licking function of the ink roller can automatically remove the ink particles and impurities effectively, ensuring the stability and smoothness of the ink system.

In addition, the dampening roller system, which has been newly optimized, not only has a better anti-ghosting effect, but also at the same time can significantly shorten the cleaning time and increase the efficiency of job changes.

3B plus format (optional configuration)

Compared with the 3B format, the 3B plus format (1060 mm x 780 mm) is only 30 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 the hypothetically extreme circumstance, certain print job is allowed to print only one page on one sheet because of the size. However, if the sheet size is 30mm 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 the material cost and time, further improves the overall productivity, and shortens the lead time. Hence, the 3B plus format is particularly suitable for the packaging printers such as Shandong Xing’an Color Printing & Packaging Co., Ltd..

Moreover, the new machine happened to be installed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ms. Yan particularly thanked the Manroland service engineering team for providing them with the best service and successfully installing the machine despite all kinds of difficulties.

With the introduction of the new machine, Shandong Xing’an Color Printing & Packaging Co., Ltd. is striving for building the brand name in the packaging printing industry in Shandong Province and a centenary printing brand name for Xing’an.
