Aug. 22, 2023

Komori Corporation (Sumida-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO Satoshi Mochida) (hereafter Komori) will participate in the '2023 Tokyo Camera Club Photo Exhibition -- This Beloved World' to be held this September, with the theme of the 'Immersive Kando Experience.'

Celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, Komori has adopted its statement of corporate purpose -- Delivering Kando "beyond expectations" by contributing to society with print technology -- as a new compass, and is implementing various projects. This exhibition will showcase displays where visitors can experience the potential of large-format photo printing using digital inkjet printing presses.

The theme this time, Komori's second participation in this exhibition, is the 'Immersive Kando Experience.' You can enjoy the experience of being fully immersed through the display of large-scale photographs, up to 1.5m x 2m in size (four times B1size), printed using Komori's inkjet digital printing press.

Please come and feel the unique sense of immersion, as if entering into the scenery within photographs, that only large-scale photographs can provide, and the new possibilities of photography offered by printing technology.

-About Impremia NS40

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 a unique design combining offset and inkjet using 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.


The Impremia IS29s

The Impremia IS29 professional-spec UV inkjet digital printing system has evolved once more --now introducing the advanced Impremia IS29s. In addition to the full range of highly-received basic features -- such as suitability with a wide range of printing stocks and sheet thicknesses, stable high print quality thanks to its superior tone reproduction and register accuracy, and instant curing/one-pass double-sided printing for immediate finishing -- a variety of options to further increase usability and create added value are also available.

The Impremia IS29s pushes the boundaries of digital printing, meeting the needs of not only commercial printing, where short runs of many different printed products and short turnarounds are required, but also those of package printing, with increased productivity and efficiency.
