Following the success of the Roland 700 Evolution press, launched at drupa 2016, the new Roland 700 Evolution Elite, Speed and Lite models bear all the hallmarks of innovation, productivity and quality that have become synonymous with the Evolution name, and a wealth of innovative automation technologies to benefit printers worldwide.
