Intelligencer Adds Manroland Hiprint 700
Intelligencer, part of Steinman Communications, is a producer of heat set web, sheetfed and digital printing as well as complete finishing, mailing, marketing and fulfillment services. The company recently installed a Manroland Hiprint 700 press.
"Intelligencer makes technological investments which best suit the needs of our clients," Robert Mason, president and CEO of Intelligencer, said. "They are the lifeblood of our business and equipping our valued staff with the tools to deliver results beyond the client’s expectations is more than a goal — it’s a necessity. With the speed of this press, it will more than double our current sheetfed print capacity at unprecedented quality levels. We look forward to serving existing clients faster and working with new customers in 2016."
The new Manroland Hiprint 700 press with simultaneous plate loading (SPL), perfecting capability, and InlineColorPilot Plus system maintains color quality controls to Process Standards ISO 12647-2, a very demanding and highly selective color standard. It will hang eight plates in four minutes, come up to color in 156 sheets and run at 16,000 sph.
"Intelligencer will experience an upsurge in production efficiency like never before,” Michael Mugavero, managing director and CEO of Manroland Sheetfed U.S. and Canada, said. "This press, the first SPL HiPrint press in North America, is equipped with the latest make-ready and quality control features, which are unmatched in capability and speed.”
Intelligencer opted to include features such as InlineRegister, ok-Balance process analysis software, a full scope of QuickChange features, Manroland Sheetfed’s exclusive TripleFlow Ink distribution system, and the coveted grail of color quality control, the InlineColorPilot Plus system.
"When you get right down to it, printing is like any manufacturing process," Joseph Schott, Intelligencer’s VP of operations, explains. "Efficiency comes when you operate quickly, reduce waste, transition from one job to another easily and move fast. That’s what we get with this new press. Our clients will enjoy faster turn-around times, less waiting between press approvals and better color control."
