Komori Efficiency Revolution at Graph Expo

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

A host of hardware and software solutions designed to optimize efficiency and profitability will be in Komori's Booth #1255
 
At Graph Expo 2012, under the "Join the Efficiency Revolution" banner at Booth #1255, Komori America will demonstrate products and services designed to help printers reduce waste, speed job cycle time and improve profitability. This Graph Expo, with efficiency being the most important aspect of driving costs down and profitability up, Komori is excited to have the opportunity to focus on the many ways printers can achieve these critical goals for success. To support those goals, Komori will be exhibiting a number of solutions designed to help printers cut wasted effort, time and paper out of their operation.
 
Introducing the Impremia IS29
Launched at drupa 2012, the Impremia IS29 marks Komori's entry into the inkjet digital market space. This 29" sheetfed, inkjet machine is the first of its kind, and is also equipped with hybrid UV technology.  "Komori has been working on this new product line for the past several years and we are very pleased that we are able to show the benefits of this technology at Graph Expo 2012," says Jacki Hudmon, vice-president of sales for Komori America. Developed in conjunction with Konica Minolta, the IS29 can operate in straight or perfecting mode and can print on substrates from 60lb paper to 18 pt. board, and does not require any specially treated papers. "This makes it an ideal partner to a sheetfed press, since you can virtually use the same substrates," says Hudmon. Komori will also offer a simulated "live" demonstration of its new Impremia IS29 via an interactive hook-up with Komori's production plant in Japan.
 
Also through their partnership with Konica Minolta, Komori will demonstrate the BizHub C8000 digital device at Graph Expo. According to Hudmon, "The beauty of this partnership is that the C8000 is the only digital device G7 certified, guaranteeing a color match between the digital press and the Komori sheetfed press, providing added versatility and efficiency for our customers."
 
KHS-AI: The backbone of Komori efficiency
As part of its mission to support a high level of efficiency in the pressroom, Komori's KHS-AI software can achieve ink and register stability in just 20 sheets-dramatically reducing makeready time and paper waste. In addition, the company's award-winning H-UV Curing System makes is possible to go from the press directly to bindery providing even extra added value to meet the demands of today's fast-paced printing marketplace. "When you take the power of KHS-AI and marry it with the high efficiency of our H-UV system, it is the perfect storm of productivity," says Doug Schardt,
sheetfed product manager for Komori America.

KomoriKare solutions for improved productivity
Komori America offers additional efficiency solutions with its KomoriKare Program, which offers service packages developed to support printers as they strive to improve press efficiency through maintenance, upgrade and training programs. Additionally, by taking advantage of KomoriKare's K-Supply program, Komori customers can now enjoy the convenience of one-stop shopping for consumables and replacement parts and be assured they're utilizing the latest procedures and techniques to optimize their productivity and profitability. "It's really amazing how efficiency can be enhanced with the addition of a software or hardware upgrade," says Bob Buongiorno, vice president of technical business development.

In the spirit of the current political debate I wanted to "Fact Check" and correct the statement above "The beauty of this partnership is that the C8000 is the only digital device G7 certified".

G7 is actually a process control or method to reproduce neutral gray, G7 Experts qualify print providers to become Master Printers. The only mention of G7 Certified systems on IDEAllaince.org refer to color management and proofing systems.

I believe what Komori is referring to is the IDEAlliance Digital Press Certification or DPC based on the GRACoL spec www.idealliance.org/certifications/digital-press where you can see over a dozen DPC systems of which Xerox has 6.

Anyone interested stop the Xerox Booth #1200 and talk with one of our G7 Experts or attend the IDEAlliance 2012 Printing Standards Forum & G7 Summit Labs during Graph Expo in Chicago.
