Komori Touts Web-to-print Applications
Komori America demonstrated the capabilities of its S40 Super Perfector offset press in web-to-print applications during a recent event at its Rolling Meadows, Ill., headquarters. About 100 printers attended and listened as speakers from Komori, Graphics Arts Technical Foundation and key vendors shared the business opportunity inherent in web-to-print solutions. Hands-on demonstrations were a key part of the event.
Julie Schaffer, director of GATF’s Center for Imaging Excellence, provided an in-depth overview of the variety of avenues available in this relatively new market, and the opportunities it offers printers seeking to expand their expertise and print product offerings.
Don Newberry, manager of Komori America’s GraphiCenter, presented an overview of Komori’s 40˝ two-sided format press and demonstrated its ability to function productively and efficiently in a variety of web-to-print applications.
