Komori Corporation (Sumida-ku, Tokyo; President, Representative Director and COO: Satoshi Mochida) hereby announces that orders for the H-UV innovative curing system have exceeded 1,000 printing presses.
The Komori H-UV system is an innovative UV curing system that uses a UV lamp/LED module developed with Komori know-how and high-sensitivity UV ink. With just one lamp/LED module mounted in the delivery, this system offers high print quality and reliability as well as excellent economic and eco-friendly performance. The H-UV system has been in worldwide use since it was released in 2009. In 2011, it was honored with a technology award by the Japanese Society of Printing Science and Technology (JSPST) as a technology that has made an outstanding contribution to the growth of the printing industry or to the development of applications for other fields. It also received the 2011 InterTech™ Technology Award that honors the development of technologies predicted to have a major impact on the graphic arts and related industries. In recent years, the H-UV L (LED) version has joined the lineup, improving printing efficiency by further reducing power consumption and the maintenance load.
As of January 2019, orders for H-UV system in the 10 years since launch have totaled 1,002 presses, including 527 in Japan and 475 abroad.
The H-UV system enables immediate postpress processing and high added value printing on special substrates or package printing thanks to its instant curing performance. Following the rapid change in the printing industry in recent years of more short runs of many different items and quick turnarounds, it has gained rapidly a solid reputation as shown by the many repeat orders from customers who installed the H-UV system. Additionally, Komori total support helps maintain high print quality, reduces common problems and lowers costs since all K-Supply brand consumables for the H-UV systems are supplied by Komori. It inclused the K-Supply H-UV Ink that is the ideal Komori standard ink.
For quality control, the effect of changes in materials tends to be temporary. Komori uses its know-how as a press manufacturer to ensure quality control by not only supplying materials, but also through recommending and providing machine maintenance.
Komori always provides next generation products designed with our customers in mind. We will continue to offer total printing solutions that solve customer issues. You can count on us.
