Komori Corporation has announced plans to initiate field testing of its new Impremia NS40, a 40 inch sheetfed Nanographic Printing System, during the spring of 2019. First shown at drupa 2016, the Komori Impremia NS40, an inkjet press equipped with Landa Nanography technology, has been in development at Komori in Japan for more than two years.
The NS40 is designed to combine the versatility of digital with the quality and speed of offset printing at a low cost per page. It has the capability to print on any off the shelf substrate, from coated and uncoated paper stocks to synthetic substrates and paperboard without the need for pre or post treatment of any type.
Operating at an initial throughput rate of 6500 straight sheets or 3250 perfected sheets per hour, the NS40 will be available in multiple configurations, from a four to seven colour straight press to an eight colour perfector with in line coating.
Based on the progress of the development of the Impremia NS40, Komori plans to carry out the first field test of the beta press in the Japanese market in the spring of 2019. This will be followed by similar plans to further test the NS40 in other countries as well.
General availability of the product is planned for late December of 2019.
