Komori maintenance guide for lockdown

Points to be noted

Komori sheetfed offset press

Maintenance before or after long holidays

Maintenance Before

  1. Do not use an air gun when cleaning the main panel and circuit board. If necessary, carefully suck up the powder dust by vaccum cleaner.
  • There is a case that the powder after sprayed may stick to the relay point and cause a problem.
  1. Record the amperage of ammeter at the time of operation at low speed.
  • This record will help an operation after holidays.
  1. Discharge the air from both compressor and press after turning off the main power of the press. If possible, discharge from each drain cock.

Maintenance After

  1. Turn on the air conditioner in the plant from the day before the operation day.
  • There is a data that it takes for 24 hours to have all parts of the press at a suitable temperature.
  1. Check if the oil in the oil bath keeps the upper limit showing on the oil level gauge. If not, fill the oil.
  2. Turn on the main power of the press and operate the lubrication pump for ten minutes or more.
  • Each device will be lubricated.
  1. Send a compressed air to the press after checking the compressor showing high.
  2. Idle slowly for a while (half day if possible) and warm up the press.
  • It will be effective if other preparations can be made during this process.
  1. Check the movement of air cylinder and other while idling.
  • Turn on/off the switch several times and check a switching sound of solenoid valve.1. Komorimatic

  1. Start the normal operation if there is no problem as a result of checking the amperage on the ammeter after idling for about one hour at low speed.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
