CHINA – To further improve print quality and speed up production to meet customer deadlines, Dongguan Xinmao Printing Material Co Ltd recently invested in a five-color sheetfed offset press to help achieve its goals.
Founded in 2007, Dongguan Xinmao is a prestigious packaging printer specializ-ing in cardboard boxes, cartons and color boxes, among others. Despite the company's remarkable success after less than 10 years in the business - thanks to its adoption of a modern management model and advanced technology - Dongguan Xinmao refused to be boxed in. Rather, it wanted to invest further to be able to reach its full potential and provide services to an even bigger roster of clients.
At the beginning of 2015, Dongguan Xinmao ordered a ROLAND 900 five-color sheetfed offset press to achieve their goal - to further improve print quality and speed up production to meet customer deadlines with plenty of time to spare.
Xiong Jiaqing, the company's general manager, is confident that the ROLAND 900 will help Dongguan Xinmao spread its wings.
The ROLAND 900 delivers stable and optimum print quality with its sturdy press construction, premium-quality drive gears and innovative hydro-stabilization. With a longitudinal shaft on presses with five or more printing units, backlash in the gear teeth is eliminated, maintaining perfect register. In addition, the 7 o'clock cylinder geometry provides a flatter sheet travel path for reliable large-format production.
With a fast printing speed of up to 15,200 sheets per hour, the largest format of up to 1,020 mm x 1,420 mm, and the minimum make-ready time, the highly automated ROLAND 900 produces more multiple-up images than smaller format presses. This not only saves on time and production cost, but also significantly increases productivity.
In addition, ColorPilot Smart Spectro Drive, which can be hand held or placed onto the rails of the center console, automatically controls the amount of ink by scanning the color control bars. Hence, a high-degree of automated standardized printing production can be realized. With the application of the automatic color control system, Xinmao Printing hopes to increase the productivity and print quality to a very large extent.
