Rolling Meadows, IL, July 24, 2017—Komori America Corporation announced that Komori’s Impremia IS29, a 29-inch inkjet, sheetfed UV printing system, received the Printing Industries of America’s 2017 InterTech™ Technology Award. The Impremia IS29 is an innovative press that delivers on Komori’s three core competencies—product reliability, high quality and substrate freedom. This year is the fourth time Komori has been honored with an InterTech™ Technology Award. Previous accolades were for its proprietary H-UV Curing System, the Komori Lithrone S40 press and the Komori Fully Automatic Plate Changing System (APC).

The Impremia IS29 is an inkjet printing system designed to successfully meet customer demands for complex variable print requirements where size is a factor. The system has the capability to economically produce variable short-run, high-quality color printing not feasible on a traditional press, while making it possible to get to market quickly with reduced set-up costs and color output that rivals offset. Equipped with UV technology, the IS29 can handle a 23x29” sheet which is ideal for a six up print format. In addition, it does not require pre-coated paper, and enables printing on a wide range of stocks, including ordinary offset paper. By taking advantage of its UV inkjet characteristics, IS29 is ideal for not only commercial print applications, but also package printing.

“We are honored to receive the prestigious InterTech™ Technology Award for this first-of-its-kind technology,” said Meishi Tsuya, president and COO of Komori America. “The Impremia IS29 is part of Komori’s line of inkjet output products, underscoring Komori’s continued commitment to offer the industry solutions that expand the potential of print and improve margins with the ability to produce diverse print communications.”
