10 Oct Komori innovates with its H-UV Lithrone G29 offset press
On the occasion of the European Open House event , Komori Europe will make headlines with its H-UV Lithrone G29 offset press for the B2 format. The press was unveiled at the Drupa 2016 fair. At last professionals can witness in-depth demonstrations of the qualities of this press which has already established new standards in printing.
The Open House event will feature graphic technologies
In the presence of its commercial partner, Screen, the Japanese manufacturer will open the doors of its Graphic Technology Centre next month on 5 and 6 October. This will be the occasion for the group’s European branch headquarters created in 1923 in Utrecht in Holland, to present three new printing models: the offset printer H-UV Lithrone G29, the Komori inkjet UV Impremia IS29 and the roll fed inkjet press Screen Truepress Jet520HD. The accent will be on the enormous potential of printing the half-size B2 format for companies. Komori will also announce the development of its status as manufacturing specialist of printing presses to that of supplier of printing engineering services also. (PESP).
The half-size format revamped for companies
The B2 format is only used by professional printing systems that meet the demanding standards of the ISO216. It has an enormous potential for companies and is utilised for printing on either thin or thick supports. The format is destined, among other things, for the creation of posters and postcards. Komori’s presses and inkjet printers are perfectly adapted to these and can print very long runs using extremely high quality printing. Marketing and communication sectors will be directly impacted by these new state of the art graphic technologies.
New outlook on printing
Komori’s H-UV Lithrone G29 offset press for the B2 format was presented at Drupa 2016 and is unique in the printing world. It can be configured in five colours with coating and extended delivery. The press has a high productivity and can print 16, 500 sheets per hour. It can also print on both thick and thin supports, and is optimised to print a maximum sheet size of 530 x 750 mm. The plate measures 605 x 760 mm and the maximum printing area is 520 x 740 mm. The sheet’s thickness can vary between 0,04 to 0,6 mm.
High quality printing is guaranteed even at maximum printing speed. A 4K camera provides an extremely precise inspection of its operation, as well as inline colour control. Rapid inspection of the colourimetric density is carried out by a PDC-SX Spectral Print Density Control, and online control by the PQA-S V5 ensures a high level of quality and productivity. The Lithrone G29 press meets a growing need in printing H-UV. It fully exploits Komori ICT (Information Communications Technology) solutions. KP-Connect authorises the visualisation of the press’s operating conditions by the cloud anywhere and at anytime. K-Station 4 provides an optimised planning of all the company’s equipment and the K-Color Simulator 2 guarantees a high level of colour matching.
