Friesens installs a Manroland R900 HiPrint XXL press
ALTONA, MANITOBA—Friesens Corporation, a 350,000 sq. ft. production facility in Altona, Manitoba, has commissioned a Manroland eight-colour, format 8, R900 HiPrint XXL press, featuring a raft of automation modules.

Friesens is a book, yearbook and package manufacturer that provides publishers, self-publishers, institutions, business and schools with in-house services.

The new press offers 73” wide XXL super format, which provides an imposition of up to 64 pages, printed both sides in one pass, or for added streamlining the ability to slit-down a 64 page format into a 2-up, 32 page imposition, in-line.

"What Friesens has accomplished is very rare, they increased their productivity by four times their current workflow,” Sean Springett, U.S. & Canadian marketing manager for Manroland Sheetfed said. “The combination of perfecting, press speed and sheet size, all in a single pass press has afforded a competitive edge unmatched by other book printers in a sheetfed press, specifically in North America."
