manroland web systems Strengthens the Core of Printing at GRAPH EXPO 2012

The theme, “Strengthen Your Core” is central to the discussions manroland web systems (Booth 2210) will be leading at GRAPH EXPO 2012. Along with the “Core Enhancements” featured by manroland web systems’ digital press and post-press solutions, and the “Core Competence” of its services, consumables, and controls, manroland web systems has one of the most comprehensive and innovative product portfolios in print.

For companies looking for additional flexibility in their product portfolio, the 32-page LITHOMAN offers the same advanced automation and closed-loop tools as the ROTOMAN 16-page, with additional production flexibility. Without sacrificing quality or increasing waste—even on extremely short runs—the LITHOMAN 32 is the smart solution for traditional 16-page printers, or double-web publications printers to reduce costs and increase throughput while shortening makereadies and print times, without sacrificing quality or finishing options.

manroland web systems’ latest member of their newspaper press line, the COLORMAN e:line will also be a featured product at GRAPH EXPO. The COLORMAN e:line offers a range of flexibility and future-proofing never before offered on a newspaper press. Virtually every system on the press is customizable to current needs, and offers options for gradual modular upgrades and retrofits over time. The COLORMAN e:line is the first newspaper press which truly grows with the printing needs of the pressroom.


Core competencies

For customers looking to lower production costs and maintenance expenses, and increase productivity through the use of quality consumables and process optimization, manroland web systems continues to lead the way with an unbeatable portfolio of solutions: printservices, printcom, and printnetwork. manroland web systems’ teams of experts have also created pressupdate, the solution to keep presses running state-of-the-art through refurbishment, retrofitting, reconfiguration, or upgrades. The pressupdate program assesses the needs of individual pressrooms to increase efficiency, boost production, and respond to changing market conditions without the investment in additional capital equipment.

The new manroland web systems Operating Concept solidifies the company’s dedication to evolving press operations, workflow, and the maintenance experience for users. No longer utilizing a series of buttons on the console, the new Concept utilizes a ControlPad, which includes an overview of all press functions through intuitive multi-touch operations. A wireless notepad, the “MobilPad”, containing all process control and workflow information, can be used at any area around the press. The new Operation Concept console, including the ControlPad, MobilPad, and printnetwork software solutions will be on display and ready for demonstration at Booth 2210.

Created as a solution for Océ digital roll fed presses, manroland web systems will introduce its digital post-press technology to the North American market. The manroland web systems variable cut-off VPF and VFF Folders and VBC Collators were developed for the digital market and are available inline on Océ digital roll fed presses and offline on a roll-to-roll platform to the market at large.

Also, manroland will showcase press products from Tensor International. With the launch of the new partnership between Tensor and manroland web systems in North America, Tensor will be represented by manroland web systems at Booth 2210 to discuss single-width web offset printing solutions.
