With mere weeks until the 2016 edition of the mega drupa printing trade fair in Europe, the wait is nearly over. On May 31st the visitors will begin their pilgrimage to Dusseldorf, Germany, prepared to “Touch the Future” of the printing industry. The big show has moved to a three-year cycle and been shortened to 11 days from 14, but still some 300,000 attendees are expected to crowd the halls and beer gardens. And what will they see?
Ryobi MHI Graphic Technology Ltd. (RMGT) will showcase a 9 Series Long Perfector, a 10 Series Packaging, and DP7 Series Digital Presses at drupa 2016. With a sharp focus on core print production requirements of today’s printing companies, RMGT will exhibit real world solutions to real world challenges in the key market segments. In the offset print segment, the manufacturer’s leadership in the LED UV revolution will be emphasized with fully evolved LED UV instant curing of perfected print on the highly successful 8-up RMGT 9 Series 4/4 long perfector and full color print and coating on the B1 size RMGT 10 Series 6-color with coater. The RMGT 9 brings digital run lengths into the offset pressroom offering high profitability in run lengths ranging from 750 sheets well into the millions.
Addressing the needs of packaging printers, the RMGT 10 Series is a 1,050 mm, 6-color press that is compatible with a wide range of stock thicknesses ranging from as thin as 0.04 mm to as heavy as 1.0 mm. This press can perform non-stop printing on heavy stock thanks to a newly developed automatic non-stop feeder and delivery shutter. It is also equipped with a chamber coater, and demonstrations will feature varnish coating using an LED-UV curing unit. The press features a PQS inline printing quality control system for quality management of package printing on heavy stock.
The much-anticipated DP7 will make its debut in Hall 16 of Messe Dusseldorf, and this true 6-up liquid toner digital offset press brings RMGT’s legendary quality, durability, and reliability to the digital pressroom for small-lot and variable-data projects. Featuring a 23.5x 31-inch sheet size, 6-8,000 SPH production speed, and adopting the well-established liquid toner imaging process, the DP7 flexibly meets the need for custom print production. Demonstrations will highlight the advantages of RMGT’s fully evolved paper-handling technology, robust offset liquid toner imaging technology, and industrial stacked fusing unit.
