Komori Highlights Waste Reduction and Increased ProfitabilityAugust 20, 2009
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL—08/20/2009—At PRINT 09, visitors to the Komori stand (#1245) will see how Komori helps them stay ahead of the competition by reducing waste and improving profitability. The three machines on display in the 12,600 square foot space include the newest addition to the Lithrone S family, the Lithrone SX40; the half size dynamo, the Lithrone SX29 and for the first time in a US exhibition, the five color Spica 29 convertible perfector press. The star of the Komori stand will be Komori’s revolutionary KHS-AI, the ultimate quality control tool that improves productivity and significantly reduces waste.
Komori America President and COO Kosh Miyao said, “Given the current economy we feel it is extremely important to make sure we are maximizing the attendee experience. That is why we made the commitment to show three machines at PRINT 09. When attendees are investing time and money to come to the show, it is our responsibility to make sure that they see and learn as much as possible about the products that can help them improve their businesses. We look forward to showing visitors to PRINT 09, how Komori can help them drastically reduce waste and improve profits.”
KHS-AI: The key to profitability
Komori’s KHS-AI software is designed to significantly reduce waste, especially critical in today’s economic climate. This intelligent software is continually learning the conditions of the press to keep it operating at peak efficiency.
One of the keys to reducing waste is more consistent first pull accuracy. Komori incorporates self learning into inking by intensely integrating the spectrophotometer with the console. When color deviates from standard, the scanner automatically updates the inking program to compensate for the deviations on the next job. This feature keeps the inking accuracy in “like new” condition. Self learning is also applied to the air settings throughout the press. The AI technology can save air settings with a specific job and can also use learned air settings on jobs that have never been run. AI also presets register, including skewing and fanout, before a single sheet is wasted. This eliminates repetitious register moves and automatically increases efficiency and reduces waste. With its Smart Sequence and Smart Feedback features, KHS-AI further eliminates downtime between jobs and speeds on the fly density changes. Komori will demonstrate this elegant new software on the LSX40 and LSX29 and also on a freestanding press console in the DoNet area.
