Roland 900 Evolution

6B3 Large Format Press

As a pioneer of print innovation, Manroland Sheetfed has developed many world firsts since the company’s establishment in 1871. Now completing its breakthrough Evolution family, comes the ROLAND 900 Evolution, further underlining Manroland Sheetfed’s position as a world leader in large format press manufacture.

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.

Bearing all the hallmarks of innovation, productivity and quality that have become synonymous with the Evolution name, the Roland 900 Evolution large-format press for packaging and commercial printing comes with a wealth of cutting-edge automation technologies to deliver cost and energy savings for printers, along with ever-faster make-ready times.

The ROLAND 900 Evolution pushes the boundaries for what is possible in large format offset printing.

Features & Benefits

ROLAND 900 Evolution

Outstanding performance

Thanks to Manroland’s Simultaneous Plate Loading technology, plate loading and blanket cleaning all take place simultaneously, resulting in significant cost savings, higher productivity and superior print quality.

Simultaneous Plate Loading drastically reduces make-ready times. Plate exchange, blanket cylinder and back cylinder washing can be done simultaneously in all printing units in less than 4 minutes.

Simultaneous blanket washing, impression cylinder washing, printing and coating plate changes, roller washing and inking-up done simultaneously reduces make-ready times by up to 60%.

Highest print quality

Outstanding print quality has been a notable feature of the ROLAND 900 series since its conception, and even after several hundred million impressions, users are still; continually impressed at the superb finishes achieved. Today, this has not changed; the new-generation ROLAND 900 Evolution surpasses all other brands.

TripleFlow 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.

InlineInspector 3.0 As printing speeds increase, the challenge of keeping print quality sheet by sheet at constantly high-level increases too. The InlineInspector detects even the smallest hickeys, splashes, scratches, creases, streaks, scumming or smearing just as reliably as it detects color deviations or substrate defects.

InlineColorPilot 3.0 measures and controls register and color automatically without the need of a pull sheet. This saves time and wasted sheets, improves color stability and offers complete documentation of the production run.

Standing out from the crowd

The more options you have, the more orders you can obtain. With the ROLAND 900 Evolution you can specify your own product portfolio. Substrate versatility ranges from the thinnest paper to the thickest carton. Thanks to the relatively flat sheet travel path, even stiff substrates can be printed safely and in high quality.

The ROLAND 900 Evolution is a proven performer for wide variety of applications  from commercial printing through to publishing, packaging printing and book printing right up to niche applications such as printing of displays, corrugated board, etc.

Inline coating for application flexibility. The ROLAND 900 Evolution can be equipped with a single ROLAND InlineCoater or double coating module. The extremely high precision of the chambered doctor blade system ensures exact dosage and uniform quality of the coating layer.

The double coating version permits a double hit of dispersion coating or a combination of printing with conventional inks and then applying a water-based primer and UV coating.
