The highlight in Komori America Corporation’s Booth #2607 at PRINT 17, being held at McCormick Place September 10-14, will be the Impremia IS29, Komori’s first-of-its-kind 29-inch inkjet, sheetfed UV printing system. Recipient of the Printing Industries of America’s 2017 InterTech™ Technology Award, the IS29 is designed to successfully meet customer demands for complex variable print requirements where size is a factor. The system has the capability to economically produce variable short-run, high-quality color printing not feasible on a traditional press, while making it possible to get to market quickly with reduced set-up costs and color output that rivals offset.
Combining the reliability of offset with the speed of inkjet technology, the IS29 is capable of printing on a wide range of stocks, including ordinary offset. It runs a 23x29 inch sheet, ideal for six-up print production with full variable print applications that can come off the machine directly to finishing. The IS29 operates in perfecting or straight mode, does not require pre-coated paper and runs at speeds of 3,000 sheets per hour in straight mode.
“Komori’s PRINT 17 theme, ‘Vision 20/20’ was chosen to underscore our continued focus to meet the changing needs of our industry with innovative solutions that expand opportunities and improve margins with the ability to produce diverse print communications,” said Susan Baines, director of marketing. “We look forward to showing visitors to our booth the many ways the Impremia IS29 delivers on that promise by filling the gap between mainstream offset and digital to offer highly relevant color output at a reasonable cost.”
Visitors to Print 17 are also welcome to visit Komori’s Rolling Meadows, IL Graphic Technology Center to see a host of other products and solutions. The Komori Graphic Center houses a Screen Truepress Jet520HD, a Highcon Euclid III digital laser creasing and cutting system, as well as a Lithrone G40 perfector with H-UV and a newly installed Lithrone GLX40. “Our focus is on helping our customers grow their businesses to the next level. Komori’s wide range of solutions coupled with our kando customer philosophy is Komori’s commitment to be a true business partner that fully supports printers with solutions and services that increase their productivity and their profitability,” says Baines.
