For you, our client, H-UV technology is a new outlook into the world of print. According to all parameters, it is way ahead of the conventional technology. The most important and crucial parameters we wish to emphasise are higher level of sharpness and print quality, faster delivery time, and with regard to the improved productivity, an even more competitive offer from the perspective of your costs. In order to show you all the benefits for your business (in the field of printing promotional and corporate materials), we present you the following aspects described in detail. Meet the new face of print!
Quality of print, which was never questionable, is at the highest technological level. Thanks to the new technology we implemented, that is the integrated H-UV lamps, the sheet is automatically cured upon applying the coat of colour, and leaves the machine dry and ready for further processing, that is all finishing processes you requested. Furthermore, the paper does not absorb colour, which makes the print durable and almost equal to the pre-set values. Experts in this field know that print quality depends on the paper quality as well, whether coated or uncoated, because the colour is differently applied. In this case, the print is completely equal. Scratch and rub resistant. Thanks to the investments, continuous training of our employees, knowledge and expertise, high quality criteria have been set at all times, which is attested by a recent survey conducted among our clients.
SHORTER DEADLINES AND DELIVERY TIMES
You will love the first presented number: new H-UV machine is 2.3 times faster than the conventional machine on which we had previously printed your materials. This is due to several factors. The change of print forms is faster and automated; from the average of 20 minutes to less than 5 minutes per set of plates. To be more precise, according to the last timing we did, the result was less than 2 minutes. In order to get the first immaculate print, we need up to 50 test printed sheets, which sometimes took up to about 300 sheets on the conventional machine. Since there is no additional curing of paper after printing, we save at least 24 hours. It all results in shorter delivery times, mutual satisfaction and better rationalisation of costs.
If we take into account a specific example, it would mean that: stapled brochure, 52 pages, A4 format, 500 copies, colour print. In ideal conditions, printed on the conventional machine with finishing processes, delivery deadline would be 1.5 to 2 days. On the new Komori machine the entire task can be done within one work shift, hence the delivery deadline can be 8 hours.
If we could only count the times you have asked us if your order can be effectuated by tomorrow or the end of the week…now it can! Because in some situations we save up to 60% of time!
Besides time, we save great amounts of material, which brings us both in a win-win situation. As we have previously stated, the amount of waste paper, that is paper required for proper print, is substantially less. Since thanks to the UV lamps the print is automatically cured, the amount of used paint is also saved because the paper does not absorb colour during the curing process. The introduction of new technology completely eradicates the need for powder used in conventional printing for drying freshly printed sheets in order to prevent them from sticking together. And what does that mean for you? Naturally, rationalisation of costs and business operation within the pre-set budget. We are not the only ones who get to save, you save as well!
NEW PRINTING POSSIBILITIES
We are introduced into some new printing possibilities. Thanks to all aforementioned benefits, this technology is also ideal for small circulations. We used digital print for smaller circulations of your materials, but now it is cost-efficient on the offset machine as well, which automatically provides you with a larger selection of options – more sizes, larger formats, Pantone colours, different types of paper.
Different types of paper – that is another new option. Although you have so far had a vast array of paper types at your disposal (grammage, thickness, absorption capacity, colour, structure…), Komori takes it another step further and enables print on new paper grammage. Thus we now offer printing on 50-gram or newspaper paper or 450-gram paper. How does that translate to specific products? Besides all of your materials we have printed so far, we can include in the product portfolio reviews, monthly and weekly editions on newspaper and very thin coated paper. If you have printed such product exclusively on rotary press due to its final weight and type of paper, we are now offering a new printing option – offset print on Komori Lithrone, which still offers print sharpness, minimum transparency and substantially lower costs of the project itself.
BETTER WORK ENVIRONMENT
Health protection of employees comes first. It is substantiated by all health and occupational safety management certificates whose requirements we have successfully meet all these years and we always strive to be better.
Work atmosphere of Printera`s employees has greatly improved. Cleaner, neater and healthier environment is something that every company strives towards. The absence of powder (replaced by H-UV lamps) ensures greater cleanliness of space and inhaled air and the new technology introduces new odourless and solvent-free colours, which is safer and healthier for the employees. The noise generated by the machine is also substantially reduced.
By printing on our new machine, we print green! On the occasion of presenting new innovations at Drupa, German fair of graphical technology, besides the new trends, methods and techniques, recent research on environment protection has been published. It stated that “CO2 emissions have been reduced by 75% on the H-UV machine in comparison with the total CO2 emissions generated from the conventional machines. The lamps do not harm the ozone, they save energy and are nature-friendly”. The research comprised the period of 1 year, that is 260 business days, and the results showed that the conventional machines generates 159.5 tons of CO2 per year and H-UV machine 38.8 tons of CO2 per year.
