Saudi printer installs Roland 706LV

Boosting production capacity

New InLineFoiler provides attractive enhancements on the printed sheet but at a lower cost

Two decades after getting its first Roland press, Al Jawad Carton and Packaging Factory has invested in another Manroland technology for an additional boost to its production capacity. The company purchased a Roland 706 LV with InlineFoiler to boost productivity, keep production costs to a minimum and add value to its line of printed products.

Established in 1983 by the Al Jawad Group, the company operates in the city of Al-Hassa of Saudi Arabia and installed their first Roland 706 LV in 1994. The company specializes in packaging printing, including cartons, self-adhesive labels, stickers and paper bags. With the installation of the new Roland 706 LV, we will be able to maximize customer satisfaction because of the shorter lead time and premium print quality, says Ahmed Jawad Al-Khars, general manager and owner of Al Jawad. The latest InlineFoiler with indexing function gives us further possibilities of providing customers with attractive enhancements on the printed sheet but at a lower cost.

The InlineFoiler on the Roland 706 LV enables the sheetfed offset to transfer foil to a substrate and then overprint it  all of it taking place in-line. What’s more, the latest indexing function offers up to 62% potential cold foil saving according to different job types. With the OnePass production philosophy, the Roland 700 provides stability when applying enhancements or embellishments to the printing product, such as spot coatings and varnishes, there is greater room for creativity. Premium value-added service from Manroland Sheetfed and its local partner Alkhorayef Printing Solutions [Manroland Sheetfeds sales and service partner in Saudi Arabia] was also one of the most critical factors in our investment decision making process. Undoubtedly we have been satisfied over the past years,says Al-Khars.
