The events will demonstrate live how the RMGT 9 & RMGT 10 Series presses are expanding the possibilities of high-quality offset print at commercial printers, packaging printers, trade shops, and online printers across the U.S. Each stop on the tour will also feature a free evening event highlighting the Rock and Roll theme that will be held for all attendees.
“We are seeing a surge in interest of commercial printers who need to upgrade their aging sheetfed offset press operations,” states Kian Hemmen, director of sales, print & finishing solutions, Western U.S. distributor for RMGT. “We conceived the Commit to Print World Tour for 2022 to allow regional events for printers to see our presses in a production environment at commercial printers, packaging printers, and trade shops. Our guests will be able to see the live production of a wide gamut of printing applications on a wide range of presses.”
“We are excited to include the PRINTING United event in Las Vegas as part of the RMGT Commit to Print World Tour,” states Chris Manley, president of Graphco, Midwest and Southeast distributor for RMGT. “RMGT’s commitment to live press demonstrations during large industry events continues in 2022 with the North American launch of our new 8-UP+ RMGT 970 offset press. Our ability to install an eight-color, 8-up press for a three-day show is testimony to one of the additional benefits of the RMGT 9 Series press: the smallest footprint of an eight-page sheetfed offset press in the industry.”
The new RMGT 970 press also features the latest in offset press technology with instant LED-UV curing and greatly reduced makeready with the introduction of Automated Smart Assist Printing (ASAP). Over 80% of RMGT 9 Series presses running in North America are manned with a single pressman.
“We are thrilled that the Commit to Print World Tour will have stops at plants that have recently installed the RMGT 10 Series press and the new RMGT 970 offset press,” states Lloyd Molloy, director of customer service, RM Machinery, RMGT distributor for Canada and authorized sales and service for new RMGT 10 Series and legacy Mitsubishi presses in North America. “RMGT is satisfying a pent-up demand for new presses combined with state-of-the-art technology to assist packaging printers. By the time we get together at PRINTING United, we will have sold and installed at least four new RMGT 10 Series presses along with three of the new 8-UP+ RMGT 970 presses at packaging plants and commercial printers doing light packaging printing in the U.S. It appears that the RMGT 9 and RMGT 10 Series are the right presses, at the right price, at the right time.”
