Komori adds Apressia MB series blanking system to Apressia series postpress brand
The Apressia MB110E

Komori Corporation has announced the addition of the Apressia MB series blanking system to the Apressia series postpress brand, and sales of the Apressia MB110E will begin early next year.

For the development of the Apressia MB series, Komori has created a strategic partnership for blanking systems with Laserck Corporation and concluded an OEM agreement. The postpress products in the Apressia series brand of printing-related equipment will thereby be further strengthened.

The Apressia MB series includes machines that separate the product part and the non-product part (scrap) following die-cutting. By having the machine perform the many tearing off (blanking) processes needed in manual work, blanking of up to about 200 sheets at a time in one job is possible. By this, labor saving in the tearing off process, a repeated operation that nevertheless requires skill, can be achieved, and a production plan can be easily set up by stabilizing production.

Using an Apressia MB machine in the production of paper packages also improves packaging hygiene since there is no direct touching of the product by human hands. The package production plant can be kept clean at all times because the recovery of non-product parts is automated by machinery. In addition, the Apressia MB is compatible with the Komori KP-Connect Solution Cloud and enables production control and greater efficiency throughout the production process.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
