Komori’s Impremia IS29 receives Printing Industries of America’s 2017 InterTec Technology Award.
The InterTech Technology Award was established in 1978 and has honored the development of technologies predicted to have a major impact on the graphic arts and related industries. In 2017, 14 recipients won award among 26 nominees. This year is the fourth time Komori has been honored with an InterTech Technology Award. Previous accolades were for the Automatic Plate Changer (APC), the Lithrone S40 40” Offset Printing Press and the H-UV Innovative Curing System.
“We are honored to receive the prestigious InterTech™ Technology Award for this first-of-its-kind technology,” said Meishi Tsuya, president of Komori America. “The Impremia IS29 is part of Komori’s line of inkjet output products, underscoring Komori’s continued commitment to offer the industry solutions that expand the potential of print and improve margins with the ability to produce diverse print communications.”
The Impremia IS29 has the capability to produce variable short-run.  It is equipped with UV inkjet technology, and can handle a 23x29” sheet which is suitable for a six up print format.
In addition, it does not require pre-coated paper, and enables printing on a range of stocks, including ordinary offset paper. By taking advantage of its UV inkjet characteristics, Impremia IS29 is suitable for not only commercial print applications, but also package printing.
