Komori America Hosts Virtual Event to Unveil Upgraded Advance Press Line Designed for “Lights-out” Production
Rolling Meadows, IL - January 11, 2021 -
Komori Corporation will unveil its newest product line, Advance, at a virtual event being held on January 19 at 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. CST. The Advance line, built on the existing GL and GLX press platforms, features enhanced automation powered by Komori’s KP-Connect Pro workflow system to allow for virtually “lights-out” production with fewer operator touchpoints, addressing the industry-wide challenge of finding skilled press operators. The Advance presses represent Komori’s commitment to continuous innovation and are currently being manufactured in Japan with shipments beginning late spring.
During the virtual event, Mr. T. Kubotera, president of Komori America, will provide remarks on the company’s nearly 100-year history and vision of what’s to come. This will include a discussion of Komori’s recent acquisition and integration of MBO Group, a manufacturer of post-press production products, and how it fits into the process of connected automation. Doug Schardt, Komori America’s director of product management, will present the features of the Advance press line up, which is ideal for both packaging and commercial print production. During the event, attendees are encouraged to ask questions as the Komori staff will be on hand to answer them. Also, Komori customers will make an appearance to share their experiences working with Komori. In an effort to eliminate Zoom fatigue, the event is designed to be fast-paced and fun with contests and prizes. Komori is urging those interested to sign up as soon as possible as space is limited.
