Komori, FUJIFILM Team Up for Technology Demo

Friday, February 20, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Komori America Corporation and FUJIFILM Graphic Systems U.S.A., Inc. have come together to demonstrate the latest pressroom technologies, including Komori’s AI advanced integration software that enhances productivity and reduces waste and Fujifilm’s Taskero Universe, during a series of Technology Demo Days at Komori’s Demonstration Center in Rolling Meadows, Ill. The Technology Demo Days, which will be held again on March 10-12, include live demonstrations of both technologies and will serve as the debut for the press application of Taskero Universe.

“In this challenging economy, printers need to be as efficient and productive as possible. The combination of the efficiency of the award-winning LS product line and the advanced capabilities of the AI software provide the highest levels of productivity and waste reduction available in the marketplace,” says Doug Schardt, sheetfed product manager for Komori America Corporation.

Komori’s proprietary new advanced interface (AI) software significantly improves profitability through reduced waste, and significantly improves press productivity and print quality. The new AI technology allows all press functions to be preset from the console, saving time and money. In addition, the AI software also has self-learning technology that progressively updates press settings over time to reduce waste.

Making its on-press debut and running live during the demonstrations was Fujifilm’s Taskero Universe, a process-based business solution that increases profitability and reduces waste. It’s designed to give printers an unparalleled level of quality control, from the prepress stage all the way through to the pressroom and across a number of output devices – including the full line of Komori presses – and locations.

“There’s been a significant amount of development aimed at helping printers secure additional projects – preflighting software, job submission applications,” notes Don Schroeder, Fujifilm’s director of solutions development. “But, who’s paying attention to what’s actually coming off of the press? Who is verifying and assisting printers ensure that the quality coming off of the back end is what their customers expect? That’s precisely what Taskero Universe does.”

Taskero Universe monitors color throughout the entire production process, verifying it against any tolerance. It delivers real time information about the status of the press and provides users with invaluable data – including paper usage, ink performance and pressroom condition – and analyzes it to identify trends, build reports and capture important press performance information. Additionally, Taskero Universe features a strong reporting tool built in, allowing printers easily pull reports and send them to other personnel as well as customers as a PDF document, and customized branding that can be tailored for each of a printer’s customers.

“Taskero Universe is a powerful tool when applied to a press,” adds Schroeder. “It not only keeps you – and your color and your press – in control, but is also proves you’re in control.”
