Manroland has installed a brand new Roland 707 LV HiPrint seven-colour sheetfed offset press at packaging giant Orora’s new Greenfield facility in New Zealand.

Melbourne-based Orora, an international packaging company listed on the ASX, had previously installed two six-color Roland 700 presses with double coaters series 720 and 742. Encouraged by their performance, Orora decided to order a new seven-color Roland 707 with coating module, Inline ColorPilot and Integration Pilot Plus for its Greenfield site. Orora also purchased innovative technologies such as ColorPilot Smart and Integration Pilot Plus to upgrade its existing six-color Roland 700 presses.

“The Roland 707 offset will further boost Orora’s high speed production operation,” said Nabil Askari, GM, Orora New Zealand.

manroland Australasia MD Steve Dunwell and New Zealand-based manroland operations manager Mark Hawkey were on site to supervise the installation.

Orora provides print and packaging solutions to customers in North America, Australia and New Zealand and last year enjoyed sales of $A3.4 billion.
