drupa: Sakurai Preview
Fifty years since it first participated in Drupa 1962 with a letterpress, Sakurai Graphic Systems Corp. will present its lineup of offset and screen cylinder presses in Hall 3 at the Düsseldorf trade show this May.
Highlighting the Sakurai exhibit will be its new 580SDC press, which is a 23 5/8 x 31 1/8 five-colour machine with coater and extended delivery; as well as the new MS-80SD Maestro Servo-Driven cylinder screen press (31 5/8 x 21 3/4 inches); and the MS-102AII cylinder screen press with a 29 1/2 x 41 5/16-inch sheet size.
Sakurai’s new 80SD Series sheetfed offset press is available in four through six colour configurations, plus coating and perfecting. The automated 80 SD Series operates at 15,000 impressions per hour, while featuring a double-diameter, 7-o’clock cylinder configuration. Automation features include plate changers, sheet size presets (feeder, delivery and impression), automatic, programmable blanket and ink roller washers with water rinsing, CIP 3-4 with JDF compatibility, QSS (Quick Standby System) with pre-inking and de-inking.
The Maestro Servo Driven MS-80SD features an optical camera registration system and monitor. It operates at speeds of up to 2,000 impressions per hour and accepts stock from .001 to .0031 inches. The Maestro prints on a range of substrates such as plastic film for electronic applications, membrane switches, display panels and touch screens, as well as paper, board and foil. The MS-80SD will be operating in-line with a Natgraph combination dryer and stacker.
