Manroland Adriatic CEO Dr. Mario Barišić delivered an introductory speech.
The print sessions were divided into two sections: Theoretical presentations and live demonstrations.
The theoretical presentations were headed by Jürgen Holtrode, regional sales director, Manroland Sheetfed GmbH and Barišić. Leading the live demonstrations was Jens Kaiser, an expert from the Print Technology Center in Offenbach and Tomislav Medjurečan, head of sales, Manroland Adriatic.
The commercial session took place on the ROLAND 702P EVOLUTION perfector press which demonstrated high-speed printing on fine 45 gsm substrates for the pharmaceutical industry, successfully printing more than 13,000 sheets per hour.
The folding carton demonstration, conducted on the ROLAND 706LV EVOLUTION with simultaneous plate loading and UV, printed an array of folding cartons, including chocolate boxes, which were made up and presented to the guests at the end of the event.
During demonstrations on aluminum coated board, the audience witnessed the switch from opaque white to UV-inks.
Nenad Janosev, technical director of Palladio East, a Serbian print company and user of Manroland presses, gave a testimonial on Manroland’s latest EVOLUTION technology installed at his company’s facility in Vršac.
“Manroland Adriatic has now sold 5 evolution presses in a short period of time and... Manroland has opened an office in Serbia with local technical support,” Holtrode said.
