“We look forward once again to being a part of the PPC Conference. Komori has been involved in the PPC for the past 25 years, watching paperboard packaging emerge as an attractive, stable market for printers,” says Mark Milbourn, executive VP sales and service, Komori America. “We know those attending this conference are looking for avenues to grow and create new revenue streams and we are excited to show them how Komori’s solutions will help make it happen for their businesses.”
On display will be printed material from the 40" Komori Lithrone GX/GXRP press for attendees seeking a one-pass, double-sided press that extends the “OffsetOnDemand” world. The GLX40RP requires no reversing of the sheet, maximizing print area and making it an ideal solution for the increasing demand for package printing with double-sided multi-color printing. Equipped with the PQA-S (Print Quality Assessment) camera system, which looks for defects and maintains color and registration throughout the run, and KHS-AI, Komori’s integrated control system that manages job data, device interlinking and deficient changeover, the press optimizes press presets by self-learning according to changes in the machine, environment and substrates, aiding in high-speed start up. The addition of LED-UV supports instant-cure and spot LED-UV applications, reticulations, strike-through varnishes and much more, as well as eliminating all drying concerns to move printed material out the door quickly.
Also highlighted will be the Impremia IS29s, Komori’s 29-inch sheetfed inkjet UV printing system that delivers the flexibility and high print quality needed to be competitive in digital packaging, considered one of the fastest growing and lucrative print markets. The Impremia IS29s is a comprehensive UV inkjet printing system capable of printing an expanded color gamut on a wide range of stocks, including ordinary offset paper. By taking advantage of UV inkjet characteristics, this system is perfect for short-run package printing.
