Manroland has targeted an increased market share of the 16pp web press market after launching two new versions of its Rotoman web platform.

The manufacturer has introduced two configurations, a HiPrint model for customers with a more limited set of requirements compared to those opting for the new DirectDrive offering.

The Manroland HiPrint can print at speeds of up to 55,000sph. The more automated DirectDrive configuration, which features the company's autoprint production system, can print at speeds of 70,000sph.

Hartmut Massierer, executive vice president of the commercial web printing systems business unit at Manroland, said: We are aware that customers expect a lot from us: new demands require new technical solutions.

"As a result we have decided to in future offer two versions of the best 16-page rotary press on the market."
