Komori Global Center-Security opened at Tsukuba plant

New facility offers Komori security printing technologies

KGC-S is equipped with banknote printing machines and systems that incorporate all aspects of security printing technologies

Komori Corporation has announced the opening of the Komori Global Center-Security (KGC-S) at its Tsukuba plant in Japan.

Founded on the concepts of ‘Power to the Print’ and ‘Trust in Print,’ the KGC-S is a state-of-the-art facility where Komori offers its security printing technologies, fine-tuned for more than 65 years, to government agencies, printing companies, and suppliers with interests in banknote and high-security printing by conducting printing demonstrations, training, and R&D activities. 

The fundamental technologies for banknote printing consist of offset printing, intaglio printing, and numbering printing – important security printing technologies, none of which can be eliminated. 

The trend in banknotes in recent years is adding security devices to these technologies as a way to prevent counterfeiting. High-level counterfeiting prevention is sought, and Komori is thus further strengthening its fundamental printing technologies.

KGC-S is equipped with banknote printing machines and systems that incorporate all aspects of security printing technologies and has a team of security printing experts who are ready to address any challenges faced by customers.

In line with the concepts of ‘Power to the Print’ and ‘Trust in Print,’ KGC-S will continue to foster trust in Komori by government agencies, printing companies, and suppliers worldwide and enable the delivery of the world’s safest and most trusted banknotes to people around the world, the company said.

In the future, Komori will continue to create next-generation security printing technologies and secure the identities of nations, companies, and individuals.

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.
