Impremia NS40

40" Sheetfed Nanographic Printing® System

Introducing a new digital press, with the impressive productivity and profitability needed to expand customers' businesses by meeting growing demand for short and medium runs including variable printing and versioning for immediate turnaround on jobs such as packages, displays and point of purchase. Supported by Komori's previously amassed technologies, and with unique designs such as use of image transfer blankets, the press achieves B1 print speeds of 6,500 sph. As a "digital offset" press, the NS40 is the peak of digital presses and is made possible only by Komori.

Features

B1 printing speeds of 6,500 sph

With standard aqueous inkjet printers, the ink is ejected directly onto the substrate, allowing moisture from the ink to soak into the substrate. This, in turn, requires a large amount of energy to dry the printed sheets, and prevents high-speed printing.

With the Impremia NS40, however, printheads instead eject aqueous Nanoink® onto an image transferring blanket, which forms a thin layer. The ink then dries on the blanket and is transferred after the inner moisture has dissipated, preventing moisture from penetrating into the substrate as deeply and allowing for high-speed drying. This unique innovation is what allows for top-class printing speeds of 6,500 revolutions.

Helps achieve impressive productivity and profitability for small to medium runs

Able to print at speeds of 6,500 revolutions with no need to change plates or ink, the Impremia NS40 is perfect not only for short packaging but also for jobs demanding short turnarounds, and heavy use of special colors, such as point of purchase. In terms of both productivity and profitability, the NS40 greatly excels at jobs such as short and medium runs where standard offset presses fall short.

Reduces time spent for corrections and on-site confirmations

The Impremia NS40 can produce acceptable sheets from the first sheet, with no need to change plates or ink. Compared to offset presses, this can greatly reduce the time spent, from corrections to final printing and on-site confirmations, even for short to medium runs of many different printed items.

Excellent post-press compatibility

Allows for the same post-press processing as with offset presses, such as offline aqueous press coating, PP lamination, board lamination, punching and folding.

Reduces costs, environmentally friendly

-Productivity

Costs remain unchanged even when producing only the necessary amount, eliminating the need for inventory, for more effective use of space.

-Costs

Efficient paper use, even for package and display printing.

-Environment

Conforms to strict European and American foodgrade safety standards such as for Nestle and the FDA.
