Komori America hosted a Technology Open House October 5–6, 2016, at the Komori Graphic Center-America located at its Rolling Meadows, Illinois, headquarters. Over 50 customers attended, where they received a drupa update on Komori’s new digital solutions as well as Komori’s wide array of UV curing products. Komori America Offset Product Manager Doug Schardt says, “Customers have a lot of questions about UV — whether to choose conventional, H-UV or H-UV L (LED). It was a great opportunity to give them guidelines about what applications are best for their businesses.” Demonstrations were done on an eight-color Lithrone G40P perfector and a six-color Lithrone G40.
“We showed speed, quality, consistency and high performance,” says Schardt. “The on demand- done Lithrone G40P with H-UV always impresses attendees. The ability to print and go directly to bindery is an outstanding productivity enhancement.”
After the offset demonstrations, visitors saw the Impremia IS29 and the Truepress Jet520HD in action. “This open house afforded us the opportunity to share Komori’s digital strategy and show the outstanding print quality that can be produced on two of our inkjet devices,” says Jacki Hudmon, Senior Vice-President of New Business Development. A presentation on Komori’s cloud based technologies rounded out the day. President and COO Koshi Miyao concludes, “We were able to show visitors the whole gamut of Komori print quality and share Komori’s vision of the future of print. It was a very successful event for us.”
