A pioneer in green environmental protection
As the world's leading supplier of printing equipment and solutions, Manroland is committed to providing customers with advanced printing equipment and complete solutions. In recent years, Manroland has gradually developed supporting printing materials with a concept of green environmental protection throughout. It has achieved enviable results and gained a lot of attention and recognition both inside and outside the industry. Recently, the media had in-depth exchanges with Thomas Luk, Head of Printing supplies, Manroland Greater China and Maxco Tang, Factory Manager of Guangzhou Printcom Printing Equipment Co. Ltd., to learn about their exploration and achievements in green development.
Implement the concept of green environmental protection and achieve sustainable development of enterprises
When it comes to green and environmentally friendly printing, what comes to mind are low VOCs content, reducing emissions and waste, and saving energy and consumption. Of course, these are the basic key points of green printing. Mr Tang thinks it’s more than that: “Currently, the country attaches great importance in the development of green printing. We should also focus on the entire green printing process, which includes every participant and user in the industry chain. From product design to people, machines and the environment in the production process, all should be included in the scope of green printing. Only in this way can the sustainable development of people, enterprises, resources, environment and society be achieved, which is comprehensive green printing".
In the past, many printing companies believed that printing materials were only used to print corresponding products. They only looked at the immediate performance and procurement costs, but ignored an extremely critical point, that is, the environmental protection of printing materials. Whether it is to meet the rigid requirements of national laws and regulations or to achieve long-term development of the enterprise, this is the primary consideration. As a leader in printing equipment manufacturers, Manroland has always attached great importance to green and environmentally friendly printing. The group has been committed to the research and development and promotion of green and environmentally friendly printing materials as early as more than ten years ago, and created two brands, printcom and magicpix. Assist printing companies in their green transformation and upgrading.
"When people heard about environmentally friendly printing materials, they would have the misconception that they were expensive and not as easy to use as ordinary materials, which also discouraged many printing companies." Mr. Luk said. In recent years, with the promotion and development of the country and the improvement of new materials and equipment, printing companies have gradually increased their acceptance of green and environmentally friendly materials, gradually changing from passive acceptance to active participation, and from focusing on unit price costs to focusing on comprehensive costs and enterprise sustainable development.

In 2007, in order to meet market demands, Manroland launched the magicpix series of products, including rubber blanket, printing chemicals, varnish, ink, and accessories, vigorously promoting environmentally friendly printing materials in China.

The numerous advantages of magicpix series products, It has brought many surprises to printing enterprises: "It has rejected the use of dangerous goods, reduced the management costs and risks of the enterprise, and equipped with some automation equipment, which can greatly save labour costs. More importantly, the magicpix series products meet relevant national laws and regulations, solving many difficult problems for printing enterprises, helping them gain the trust of many customers, and greatly increasing the order volume of the enterprise,” Mr. Luk also added, "While the magicpix series of products bring value to printing enterprises, they also further assist in improving their competitiveness in the market.
