NAPA OPEN HOUSE 2009
Members of the North American Packaging Association (NAPA) attended an Open House event at manroland’s Print Technology Center in Westmont on September 17. While in Chicago for the Fall Leadership Meeting, NAPA attendees learned more about the extensive packaging capabilities the company has to offer. They left impressed by what they saw of the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive, the world’s fastest makeready press. The demonstration of the ROLAND 700 DirectDrive included running four jobs back-to-back to show the “zero time” plate changing capability of the 40-inch press. The NAPA group was amazed by its multi-tasking functions as the press changed plates while it performed wash-up between jobs. The DirectDrive press is under consideration by numerous packaging firms, some looking at 40" format for the first time.
