Komori Corporation has added 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 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 are 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, labour-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 entire production process.
The series includes Apressia MB110E, Apressia MB110M, and Apressia MB110H. The semi and automatic models have manual and automatic loading and discharge as per model. Speed range is from 6000 to 15,700 sph for different models. Changeover time is 10 minutes for each.
