Packaging printer, Omicron, install highest automated large format press in Slovenia
New ROLAND 900 Enters Production
Omicron d.o.o, a reputable manufacturer of folding cartons in Slovenia, and one of the largest carton producers in the Slovenia, has chosen Manroland Sheetfed as its partner for their latest investment, a ROLAND 905 LV, 5-color press with coating in B0 (6B) format.
This is Omicron's fifth investment in Manroland sheetfed presses.
Thanks to Manroland’s Simultaneous automation, core make-ready steps such as plate exchange, blanket, and impression cylinder wash-up are simultaneous. The make-ready function in Autoprint realizes production changeover in under 4 minutes.
Fully proven on the large format and 3B format sectors, the ROLAND InlineColorPilot is regarded as the market leader in terms of speed and precision in measuring and controlling colors. The module measures and regulates ink density during the job run without having to stop the press and pull the sheets for inspection. Consistent print quality is therefore maintained from the first approved sheet to the last one in the pile. Complete documentation of the print run has extra benefits: it's the ideal digitalized tool for quality control and it helps to analyze and resolve customer queries.
Mr. Gregor Lebeničnik, CEO of Omicron said:
"We are happy to work in partnership with Manroland once again. This new BO format press provides us with more large capacity opportunities, and in the highest print quality. The machine's construction is very ergonomic and extremely user friendly. It's always a risk to invest in such a large machine in today's challenging economic environment, but we firmly believe the new investment is helping us overcome any risks, and improve our economy.
The home market is not huge, but we are proud to see an increase in export orders, resulting in lots of new happy customers. We are looking ahead to the future, and the possibility of further investment in new technology".
Dr. Mario Barišić, Managing Director, Manroland Adriatic:
"We are delighted Omicron is pleased with our large format press solution, and also how well their fully trained staff are successfully using these highly automated integrated systems in their daily production. It is not usual to operate such large format machines in smaller markets, such as the Adriatic, but Omicron's optimistic and progressive management have proven they can use our technology successfully with increased productivity. We look forward to the next challenge".
