Rollem Scores hit at Carson Print

  • News

The scoring wheels launched at Ipex by Sheffield manufacturer Rollem have been given the thumbs up by Wirral printer Carson Print Services, which was the first UK company to test the new product when it installed the wheels on a trial basis prior to the exhibition.

“We operate both litho and digital presses here at Neston and were increasingly printing heavier stock on our digital equipment,” says director Eddie McGill. “However, we often encountered problems with cracking when card printed digitally was then folded.

“Around the time that we were looking for a solution we were also considering replacing our Rollem numbering and perforating machine, which had been in regular use for many years. We contacted Rollem and the company sent out an engineer. To be honest, the machine simply needed a good service and we were impressed by the engineer’s honesty, as we were prepared to buy a new model.

“We explained about the cracking problem and he suggested we tested Rollem’s new scoring wheels. We subsequently fitted these to the numbering and perforating machine, which was once more performing as new. Rollem’s scoring wheels are certainly very straightforward to set up and have completely overcome the issues we had, so that we can now print and fold a wide variety of stocks with first class results,” says Mr McGill.

Rollem says there was a great deal of interest in the newly designed wheels at Ipex and that it does not know of a scoring machine on the market that can handle heavier stock. The wheels can be fitted easily to any Rollem system, from a numbering unit to a JetStream machine, and have the ability to score stock up to 900 gsm as well as plastic. The high quality wheels provide accurate, crack-free, scoring across a range of materials.

Carson Print Services, which was formed in 1981, provides a comprehensive selection of print and finishing services to local business in the Neston area and throughout the UK. These include a full range of business and personal stationery.

A Safe Bet at IPEX2010

  • News

Sheffield manufacturer Rollem is teaming up with Heidelberg and Sappi at IPEX2010 to create more than 30,000 packs of playing cards. Heidelberg (www.heidelberg.com) will use a Speedmaster XL 105-10-P to print the cards on 285 gsm Sappi Algro Design Card (www.sappi.com), and during the show, Rollem will use its Revolution finishing system to show how one operator can seamlessly transform printed sheets to fully wrapped decks.

“The B2 sheets will each contain 56 cards, which includes two extra cards for the top and bottom of every pack,” says Rollem managing director Stuart Murphy. “The Revolution system will automatically slit, collate, and punch the cards giving a slit accuracy of +/- 0.05mm, which is casino quality. The king and queen might appear a little fatter than usual because the packs will be US poker size, which is wider than a standard pack typically used in the UK!

“Heidelberg set up the artwork for the cards using its Prinect workflow, which was highly efficient, and we’re extremely grateful to both Heidelberg and Sappi for their willingness to work with us on the project. At IPEX we’ll demonstrate Revolution on-line to a separate wrapping unit. The completed wrapped packs of cards will be available free of charge on all three companies’ stands.”

Sheffield manufacturer Rollem is celebrating its 80th anniversary with the development of several innovative finishing systems for the commercial, packaging and digital sheet-fed markets. The company is one of the world’s leaders in creating bespoke finishing systems, which range from standalone numbering, perforating and scoring units to sophisticated lines that may require extremely accurate slitting, gluing, folding and wrapping.

“Many employees have been with the company for more than thirty years and this concentrated depth of knowledge allows us to provide finishing solutions in situations that other manufacturers would not want to even consider,” says managing director Stuart Murphy, who acquired Rollem in 2006 along with fellow director Colin Pears. “Rollem equipment is based on rotary technology and is in use today in an extensive variety of print related sectors.”

Visitors to the company’s IPEX stand (Hall 18, Stand E860) can expect to see some of the most exciting finishing solutions on the market. Those who don’t see what they need can simply ask – a large percentage of Rollem’s products are tailored to specific customer’s needs.
