Founded in 1995, Daehan Printech is a thriving commercial printer in South Korea. It produces printing publications and high-end catalogs, brochures, calendars and recipe books for a number of international brands, such as Samsung and LG.
With the help of SPL, the printing plates in all printing units can be changed at the same time. The blanket and impression cylinder can also be washed simultaneously with the plate change. Up to seven minutes can be saved per job change according to the press configuration. In other words, if the company needs 108 job changes a day, it will save up to 756 minutes – or the equivalent of 12.6 hours – per day.
According to Sunkwan Hwang, the company’s chairman, as the run length of jobs is getting much shorter in publications and commercial printing jobs, the short make-ready time and fast printing speed of the machine are becoming more valuable to the company. For Daehan, ROLAND 704 Evolution is the perfect machine for both short-run jobs and long-run jobs.
“In the case of ROLAND 700 Evolution, the make-ready time is very short. Therefore, it is more productive than other machines,” said Hwang. “This is also very helpful in boosting productivity because the process of job changing is very fast. In addition to this, we can work faster than others by shortening operation moving line with good positioning of the operational panel.”
