Komori’s Five Solutions to be Revealed at Drupa
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL—February 26, 2008—Komori will impress visitors to Drupa 08 with a wide range of new technologies aimed at improving productivity and profitability and reducing the environmental load of print. With over thirty live demonstrations per day in the 2,000 square meter stand in Hall 15, Komori will present five solutions that deliver on its message of “Kando”—exceeding customer expectations. Showcasing its most advanced printing systems, Komori will exhibit eight offset presses ranging in size from the small format Spica 529P right up to the System 38S 16-page web. Drupa will also be the launch pad for the next generation of award-winning LS technology and the KHS-AI advanced intelligence print start system,
Five Solutions for Success
Under the banner of “Five Solutions”, demonstrations will focus on the five most important issues facing today’s print marketplace:
• Extra Added Value
• One-pass High Productivity
• On Demand Changeover
• Flexible Multi Print
• Preserving the Environment
Central to the five demonstration theatres is the Komori “DoNet Zone”, the command centre for Komori’s JDF workflow. JDF management of all Drupa presses, using three MIS vendors, will be networked through Komori’s K-Station, which provides a bi-directional interface moving digital data throughout the entire production process. When used in conjunction with the software systems of our job management partners, information is sent from the press back through K-Station and delivers real-time press productivity and pressroom management data.
The DoNet zone also offers visitors off-press demonstration opportunities to run through all the latest Komori network and integration software through a stand alone PQC Print Quality Control console, including the new KHS-AI print start system, and three different JDF programmes from our three MIS partners.
Drupa Exclusive Innovations not to be missed
• KHS-AI advanced intelligence on sheet fed presses. This system enables even faster make ready and job changeover than the previous KHS as it has a self-learning function, memorising any changes which the operator makes to CIP4 download information and using this for subsequent jobs. This is the main feature in the On Demand Changeover Theatre.
