Rolling Meadows, IL - Komori America Corporation announced that M13 Graphics has signed a letter of intent to purchase the Komori Impremia NS40, a sheet-fed inkjet press equipped with Landa Nanographic technology. After researching the capabilities of the Impremia NS40, Dan Banakis, president of M13 Graphics, traveled with his team to drupa 2016 to see the innovative digital printing system in operation. M13 Graphics has become a national leader in online and commercial printing services by offering high-quality, fast and affordable printing services. The M13 Graphics team found the Impremia NS40 to be a perfect fit for the company as the Impremia NS40 produces offset-quality brilliant color and will help M13 expand their high quality on-demand business.
“We saw right away the Impremia NS40 would support our mission to deliver quality printing services quickly and affordably,” said Banakis. “With the ability to do 40-inch digital work, we like the fact we can offer greater savings to customers by printing multiple jobs at the same time, streamlining production. The NS40 is direct to press, eliminating any costly pre-production steps, and will give us the flexibility to economically offer a variety of products to our customers.” An additional key driver to signing a letter of intent for the press was the combination of the offset color quality and the flexible benefits of digital that will allow the company to add new capabilities like variable data printing. Banakis reports he plans to transition a large portion of the company’s offset and digital work to the Impremia NS40 once it is installed to offer their customers even more savings in both time and money.
The Impremia NS40 is built on a Komori platform and uses Nanographic developed water-based inks, making it energy-efficient and eco-friendly. The press prints on a variety of substrates—such as coated and uncoated paper stocks, recycled carton, newsprint and plastic packaging films—without requiring any kind of pretreatment or special coating.
“M13 Graphics has a history of impressive growth due in part to the company continuing to respond to changing market demands,” said Jacki Hudmon, senior vice president, business development for Komori America. “The Impremia NS40 will further support this commitment by providing one of the most innovative solutions in print at a lower cost and quicker turnaround.”
