Sakurai to Feature its Family of Offset & Cylinder Screen Presses
Sakurai 96 Series
Sakurai’s 16 page format 96 Series accepts a 25 x 38" sheet and operates at 16,000 IPH and is available with or without coater – from four to six printing units. The Sakurai 96 Series is a welcome addition to the SD family of presses, first introduced to the North American market at Graph Expo ’07 and featured at Drupa ‘08. The 25 x 38” size has been requested by many Sakurai customers who have been growing into the 16-page format, but had no continuing choice from Sakurai.
This addition will allow Sakurai to maintain their loyal customer base as their needs grow and also appeal to any printer desiring to move up to a fully automated 16 page press. Sakurai is the first and only press manufacturer to offer a press series which reflects the original North American size, built by North American press manufacturers, before all manufacturing went offshore in the 70's. Most sheets that run on 16-page format presses today are 25 x 38" and this new size was designed with that in mind.
