During Pamex 2024, Komori unveiled a range of products, among them were some new launches. Highlights from the expo featured the Komori Perfector 40 (model: LP-140/A 40-inch convertible perfecting offset printing press) and KP-Connect (connected automation), alongside other notable offerings.
Komori Perfector 40 LP-140 is suitably engineered for thin paper printing at high speed with exceptional quality and stable two-sided one-pass printing at 13,000 sheets/hr. “This offset press is indeed a ‘perfect press’ for a variety of single-color and two-sided jobs,” said Jitender Rohilla, general manager-sales, Komori India. “While demand for multi-colored printing continues to rise, Komori has developed this press to meet the persistent demand for single-color printing of items such as dictionaries, paperbacks, study aids, user manuals, and pharma inserts.”
Providing superior print quality, and eliminating common issues faced by two-sided machines, Komori Perfector 40 LP-140 is designed with Komori’s amassed expertise in machine safety, durability, and operability. With service and support, the offset press can be relied upon for years to come.
On the other side, Komori presented KP-Connect for effective use of printing operation data. This printing task control software is positioned between the MIS and production site which makes complex task control visible and enables anyone to share the latest operating information in real-time. “Capable of integrated control, including schedule creation and distribution and production results collection, KP-Connect is designed for both offset presses and digital printing systems,” said Rohilla.
In addition, information in KP-Connect was made visible in real-time by digitizing the operating schedule table and daily operating report. “Suitably designed for packaging converters, commercial and book printers, we are targeting 50 installations by the end of FY 2023-24. Komori already has more than 65% market share which is expected to increase in FY 2024-25,” said Rohilla.
