What is the maximum thickness of the cardboard that can be processed?

Such a machine can process cardboard with a thickness of up to 1 mm. If the machine is equipped with a special unit for cardboard processing, the thickness increases to 1.2 mm.

What is the maximum printing format that can be processed?

With a Man Roland 904, minimum formats of 50×70 cm and maximum formats of 89×116 cm can be printed, and with a Man Roland 905, the maximum sheet format can reach 102×142 cm.

PPL, SPL or APL? What type of charging plates to choose?

If you want performance and efficiency, our advice is to choose SPL – Simultaneous Plate Loading. Plate loading and cylinder cleaning occur simultaneously, resulting not only in higher productivity and higher print quality but also in significant cost savings. Using such technology reduces set-up times by up to 60% (plate changing and cylinder washing can be done simultaneously in all printing units in less than 4 minutes).

What is the difference between Man Roland 904 and Man Roland 905?

The main difference between the two printing machines lies in the maximum print format that can be processed. For model 904, the maximum is 89×116 cm, while for model 905, the maximum is 102×142 cm. You should consider this and choose based on the materials you want to print. Otherwise, both machines have a minimum speed of 13,000 sheets/h, reaching up to 16,000 sheets/ hour in newer models. Man Roland 904 and Man Roland 905 can have 4, 5, or 6 colors. In terms of price, the Man Roland 905 may involve a larger investment, but the price also depends on the features of each machine. We await your requirements to offer you the best machine according to the features you want and the allocated budget.

What are the features that increase the machine’s performance?

The more equipped the machine, the higher its performance and efficiency. From our point of view, the Color Pilot inking control system, SPL plate loading, and the automatic print cylinder washing system are features that should be indispensable. Automated features are useful and sometimes necessary for the simple reason that they successfully eliminate human error. Moreover, when the machine and operations are automated, you need less staff, which means lower costs.

However, you should also keep in mind that performance pays. In other words, if you want more features for your machine, you must allocate a larger budget. But if we balance the cost reduction that an equipped machine brings, we can say that the investment will pay for itself quickly. This does not mean that a standard machine, without many features, will not do the job. It depends on the materials you want to print and the print quality you want to achieve – if you have any questions about the equipment and would like further explanation, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help you make the best decision.
