Komori Corporation will show its commitment to becoming a business partner of customers that can improve their margins and increase their productivity. They will exhibit under the theme ‘Open New Pages’ at drupa 2016 (31 May – 10 June, Düsseldorf).
Komori will begin regular sales of the Impremia IS29, its inkjet UV printing system jointly developed with Konica Minolta, at drupa. The Open New Pages Show at the Komori Graphic Technology Centre (KGC) this February attracted nearly 400 customers. Open house events were also held at Komori America Corporation this February and Komori International (Europe) B.V. in March, and the ability to print directly on a wide variety of stocks and the high print quality impressed attendees and many inquiries were received.
The company will also demonstrate the innovative B1-size Impremia NS40 digital printing system that uses in-the-spotlight nano technology under license from Landa Corporation. This new product will perform high-speed printing at 6500 sph as the world’s first B1 digital printing system. Visitors will experience the technical innovations and performance improvements that have been made in the four years since Landa announced the system at drupa 2012.
Komori will release the new Lithrone G29 73,66cm (29-inch) offset printing press. The design has been renovated, and the press has been reborn as a high-end machine meeting the printing needs of increasingly advanced and complex markets. In the future, this base machine will be developed into a system with productivity surpassing digital printing systems.
The Lithrone GX40RP equipped with the latest technologies will show the ultimate short makeready using parallel control and high productivity of 18000 sph printing, while the Lithrone GX40 with coater will demonstrate new printing control and a high-precision print inspection system that enables high-speed package printing. All offset presses will be equipped with the H-UV innovative curing system and demonstrated using K-Supply H-UV ink.
Also being exhibited is the Apressia CT137 cutter. The company will demonstrate cutting of printed sheets that have been cured by the H-UV system and finishing as final products. Komori Information Communications Technology Solutions, a powerful tool supporting the visualisation and automation of processes, labour saving and productivity enhancement, will also be displayed. These consist mainly of KP-Connect, for simple visualisation of operating conditions over the cloud anytime and anywhere, and K-Station 4, for optimum scheduling of all presses.
