Rolling Meadows, IL - At China Print 2017, an international printing technology exhibition sponsored by Printing Equipment Industries Association of China, Komori will continue to deliver on its theme “Open New Pages” with technology and solutions that demonstrate its evolution from a specialist printing press manufacturer to a print engineering service provider (PESP). China Print 2017 will be held in Beijing, China from May 9 to May 13, 2017 at the new China International Exhibition Center. Following its subtheme for the event, “Change for Success,” visitors to the Komori booth will view a wide range of possibilities for driving new potential in different business settings, such as moving to high added-value printing, digital printing for new growth or the ability to become a print media enterprise.
On display, for attendees looking for a one-pass, double-sided press that extends the “OffsetOnDemand world,” will be the Lithrone GX40RP (GLX40RP). The GLX40RP requires no reversing of the sheet, maximizing print area and making it an ideal solution for the increasing demand for package printing with double-sided multi-color printing. Equipped with the latest Komori technologies, this state-of-the-art press provides the ultimate in short makeready and fast turnaround.
Debuted at drupa 2016, the compact, yet highly capable Lithrone G37 (GL37) offers a 25x37-inch maximum sheet size, can produce A1-size products and is an ideal solution for handling a wide range of needs in publishing and commercial printing using either light or heavy stock. The GL37 press will also feature Komori’s new H-UV L (LED) instant curing system that enhances the low energy footprint of the press.
Also being demonstrated is the Impremia IS29, Komori’s inkjet UV printing system. The Impremia IS29 is a state of the art inkjet printing system capable of printing on a wide range of stocks, including ordinary offset paper. By taking advantage of UV inkjet characteristics, this system is ideal for not only commercial print applications, but also package printing.
Additionally, Komori ICT (Information Communications Technology) Solutions will be on exhibit. Komori ICT solutions provide the powerful support needed for improving pressroom productivity. These consist of:
- KP-Connect, for real-time visualization of operating conditions over the cloud
- K-Color simulator 2, Komori’s color management system for high-level color matching of offset and digital
Finally, three special areas will be of interest to China Print 2017 visitors. Komori’s K-Supply consumables, materials and equipment will be featured in the K-Supply/Service Corner and used on exhibit presses. Products that meet the stringent environmental requirements in China will also be shown. The Komori Ecology Corner will have solutions for those seeking a higher level of sustainability in their facilities and the Print Gallery will display an array of diverse high added-value printed items from around the world that use special techniques and an introduction to the printing methods and application cases used.
