Multiple options in single circumference.

The new ROTOMAN DirectDrive generation is designed for the needs of highly demanding 16-page commercial printers. automation features enable extremely short makeready times, high reproducibility and low start-up waste, all while maintaining premium printing quality.


Each printing couple is equipped with two motors and can move and adjust the cylinders to ensure that the web passes through untouched. This makes bypassed printing units and the use of blind plates a thing of the past. Printing companies benefit from shorter makeready times and less waste.


The printing couple is equipped with automation functions for rapid production changeovers such as APL® or AutoJobChange. During finishing, the system detects an impending job change and initiates required actions after the run target has been met. Just another factor that makes for minimal waste and shorter makeready times.

Flying imprint changes:

Cylinder stop and imprint change with DynaChange, e.g. change to black print for commercial advertising.

Folding quality:

The patented magnetic brake ensures the perfect crease in the quarter fold at speeds of up to 65,000 copies per hour. With two quarter folds, the ROTOMAN DirectDrive turns out 75,000 copies per hour.

Flexible equipment:

In addition to automation options, up to six printing couples enable the application of special colors and coatings on both sides. With Inline Finishing modules for UV coatings, gluing, or die-cutting, there are no limits to product creativity. Additional options such as auxiliary folders, plow folds, or open sheet delivery provide even more flexibility.
