Komori to field test new Impremia NS40
August 28, 2018 By PrintAction Staff
Komori Corp. announced plans yesterday to initiate field testing of its new Impremia NS40, a 40-inch sheetfed Nanographic Printing System, next spring. First shown at drupa 2016, the Komori Impremia NS40, a sheetfed inkjet press equipped with Landa Nanography technology, has been in development at Komori in Japan for more than two years.
The press manufacturer explains the NS40 is designed to combine the versatility of digital with the quality and speed of offset printing at a low cost per page, adding it can print on any off-the-shelf substrate, from coated and uncoated paper stocks to synthetic substrates and paperboard – up to 32 point – without the need for pre- or post-treatment of any type. Operating at an initial throughput rate of 6,500 straight sheets or 3,250 perfected sheets per hour, the NS40 will be available in multiple configurations, from a 4-7-colour straight press to an 8-colour perfector with in-line coating.
Based on the progress of the development of the Impremia NS40, Komori plans to carry out the first field test of the beta press in the Japanese market in the spring of 2019. This will be followed by similar plans to further test the NS40 in other countries as well.
“Komori has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring this game changing technology to the market so we are very excited that this product will soon be a reality,” says Scott Robertz, NS40 Product Manager for Komori America.
General availability of the Impremia NS40 is planned for late December 2019.
