RYOBI MHI LED-UV Users Group at Print UV 15

Friday, February 13, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Major Announcement Due as RYOBI MHI LED-UV Press Sales Build 

Cleveland – RYOBI MHI’s Commit to Print moves to Las Vegas as RYOBI MHI Users and Sales Staff join Print UV 15 attendees on March 1-3 at Encore Las Vegas.  “As RYOBI MHI’s G3 LED-UV Technology takes hold in the North American print market numerous RYOBI MHI press sales are following suit,” states Derek Gordon, Graphco Midwest Regional Manager.  “We felt that a RYOBI MHI LED-UV User Group would allow our customers to participate in an open forum more closely focused on our G3 LED-UV technology.” 

The eighth annual Print UV Conference will focus on a number of topics that drive home the significance of LED-UV technology in the pressroom, including sessions on Plastics Printing and One-Pass Printing using Long Perfectors.  As LED-UV curing becomes mainstream technology the ease of use and factory backing of RYOBI MHI LED-UV is striking a chord throughout North America.  There will be a major new RYOBI MHI LED-UV Press investment announcement made at the Print UV 15 conference.  

Also traveling from Japan to join the Commit to Print team will be Mr. Kozac Takata, Group Leader of RYOBI MHI Sales and Marketing.  Mr. Takata has been closely involved with the market development of LED-UV Technology since Ryobi Graphic Systems and Panasonic came together in 2007 to strategically move LED-UV from other industrial applications into the pressroom.  “Our key advantage is our partner in Panasonic,” states Takata.  “Much like Ryobi Limited and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (RYOBI MHI’s Parent Companies), Panasonic is one of the most sought-after technology partners in the world, so developing LED-UV curing for Print as a joint venture was a partnership of equals.”

Takata continues, “We felt that Panasonic’s reputation for consumer and industrial innovation would provide a sound foundation, similar to what we are seeing with automaker Tesla Motors and Panasonic partnering on battery technology in the new Gigafactory in Reno, Nevada. When global industrial companies like Ryobi, Mitsubishi and Panasonic develop new technologies together the synergy is quite powerful.” 

The RYOBI MHI User Group will hold a kick-off meeting at Trump International Hotel where more details about this exciting new group will be shared.  All RYOBI MHI LED-UV Users are encouraged to join the Users Group where RYOBI MHI’s worldwide know-how in techniques, processes and special applications will be discussed.  2015 marks the second year for Platinum Sponsorship by RYOBI MHI and Graphco at Print UV being held March 1-3 at Encore Las Vegas.  For more information on Print UV 15 see www.printuv.com
