    We want to change the our offset machine(SM 74-2 2001 65 mio).
    We are interested in those two model (Heidelberg SM 74-4 H 1999 and Man Roland 504 2005 model).Prices of two model are same approximately.
    Does anyone have any advice on this choice? Which machine is better and more advantageous?
    I have heard that man roland having electrical problems(main board, unit electronic card etc.)
    I'm waiting for advice from experienced friends.
    Thanks..

    IMO the Heidelberg would be the better of the 2. I would see which printed best being they are both used.

    The 1999 Heidelberg is an excellent machine as long as it has the CP2000 software. Even though the Roland does historically have some electrical issue 2005 machine should have more automation. You need to compare what feature were fitted to the press at the factory. A proper print test for each is must before purchasing, and hold the dealer to matching that quality when moved and reinstalled.

    Thanks AKJ and Yeslek for your advices. The 1999 Heidelberg has not the CP2000 and the Roland had worked with thick weight(350+ gram) for long years.
    We are planning work with insert jobs(90,110 etc. gram) by the machine. Is the roland suitable to our for such jobs(90, 110 gram) beacuse of it worked for the heavy(350+) previously?
    Regards..
