Komori Corporation announced the addition of Apressia AT, a high-end class auto pile turner, to the Apressia brand range that comprises post-processing machines such as cuttings, die cutters, and blanking systems. Komori will launch the new machine at a private show it plans to organize at its Tsukuba plant for customers from both Japan and overseas on 6 – 7 February, 2019. At this event, Komori will also demonstrate the Apressia AT120H model with a maximum stack height (including pallet) of 2,000 mm that has a pallet clamp function that enables pallet and paper centering.

The Apressia AT is a high-end class auto pile turner that rotates large amounts of paper (called a pile) loaded on pallets, changes the pallets, and is used in a variety of ways in secondary processing including airing and aligning the pile. Not only can paper type and other conditions be registered, basic operations and advanced automation are also possible because operations can be performed in advance from the touch panel.

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.
