2016 was a very rich drupa year and it confirmed a leading position of Komori in all European printing markets, not only as a historical offset manufacturer, a new major digital player but also a Print Engineering Service Provider. That is why, Komori International Europe considers 2017 as the perfect year to emphasize its high industry profile, strong expertise and leadership in various technologies and graphic segment markets. And the coming month of March, with 2 major new-type events organized, perfectly reflects the 2017 overall ambitions of the company.
A Printology G37 in Brussels area (Belgium) on Thursday 2 March
On Thursday 2 March, we’ll initiate our sequence of new Printology G37 events in Brussels (Belgium) with as a main theme: “Up to 16-page production” and as a sub-theme: “Optimize size, minimize cost”. The Printology G37 concept consists in two parts: a morning technology seminar based on a series of targeted didactic presentations delivered by Komori specialists as well as renowned industry partners on the theme at a local venue, and a live afternoon demonstration of a Komori Lithrone G37 press at a reference customer site nearby.
With such a format of events, we believe that, time being so precious for printers nowadays, we can offer our guests a condensed and concrete vision of the benefits of the outstanding Komori engineering excellence and production performance both in theory and in practice within a short day.
Our first March session will take place at a renowned hotel in Brussels (Belgium) for the seminar and at Leleu Printing, the Belgian customer who purchased the 4-colour Lithrone GL-437 H-UV L (LED) exhibited at drupa 2016 and is kind enough to welcome our visitors for a real production experience.
No doubt, after such an intense day, will the attendants not only be aware of the Komori offer as a total solution provider but also convinced of the overall performance of the new Komori Lithrone G37 and of its capability to run cost efficient and diverse commercial jobs up to 16 pages.

A B2 size PrintOnDemand event in Komori Graphic Center Europe (KGC-E) in Utrecht on Wednesday 8 March
One week after the Belgian Printology G37, on Wednesday 8 March, Komori International Europe’s renewed Graphic Center (KGC-E) of Utrecht will host a second major event devoted to the B2 size PrintOnDemand sheetfed solutions offered by the Komori offset and digital technologies.
Within the theme “B2 size, the perfect fit” and subtheme “Boost your PrintOnDemand business”, we will enlighten the respective benefits of the Komori half-size (29’’) ranges of presses, both offset and digital, and demonstrate the challenging however complementary power of our 5-colour Komori Lithrone GL-529 with coater and H-UV drying and our digital inkjet UV Impremia IS-29, which both starred at drupa 2016.
We’ll indeed propose our audience to select a few jobs from a large variety of prints on different substrates and with different run lengths, mimicking the daily business decisions of our customers and prospects. And we are very confident that, after our seminar and demonstration, our visitors from all over Europe will go back to their printshops with a clear vision of facts, figures and PrintOnDemand business models allowing them to make the right investment decisions between 530 x 750 mm offset or digital presses to expand their business.
