According to Komori, what the printing industry needs now is a shift from manufacturing to creative. Based on the concept, innovate to create, Komori will create new value with customers through state-of-the-art technologies that will lead the way in the next generation of print.

At Print China 2019, Komori will present solutions that answer customer issues, starting with KP-Connect, which currently connects nearly 300 machines and provides visualisation of production status, such as operating conditions and operating totals. By providing products for creating new added value, Komori partners with customers to solve problems, support business innovation and create a profitable future.

KP-Connect Pro is middleware that connects processes, enabling digital control of all printing processes by means of a simple scheduler function and a function providing real-time visualisation of production results. At Print China, the company will show the new concept of Connected Automation, which automatically evolves printing companies into smart factories by KP-Connect Pro.

The among products, Komori will also showcase Lithrone G40 H-UV/ H-UV L (LED)-equipped seven-colour 40-inch offset printing press with inline coater. Designed with Komori’s dedication to precision manufacturing, the G40 ensures high quality print with unsurpassed productivity. It promotes green printing by reducing consumable and energy usage and lowering the carbon footprint of print.

Another machine from the Lithrone family will be Lithrone G37. Equipped with H-UV L (LED) curing for fast print drying, this press has the power to address the full span of requirements in the publishing and commercial printing segments on both light and heavy stocks. Since colour management can be implemented by including a CMS colour bar on the sheet margin even with 8-up A4 or US letter size impositions, this machine is ideal for producing high page-count products with high print quality.

Also on display will be Impremia IS29 sheetfed UV inkjet digital printing system. Offering high print quality with an output resolution of 1,200x1,200-dpi, the Impremia IS29 is capable of printing a completely different image on each sheet without using plates. Capable of printing on a wide range of papers, from light to heavy stocks, this machine can print on offset paper without any pre-coating. Equipped with a sheet perfecting mechanism that uses offset manufacturing technology and a UV inkjet system with LED-UV curing system, this superior digital production machine is able to perform one-pass double-sided printing with fast print drying and high front-back register precision.
