H-UV system series achieves the milestone of orders exceeding 1,000 printing
Komori Corporation has announced the milestone by its highly
successful H-UV innovative curing system, which has reached over 1,000 printing
presses installed world over. In India Komori has sold twenty two machines which
can print on H UV enabled presses.
The Komori H-UV system is an innovative UV curing system that
uses a UV lamp/LED module developed with Komori know-how and high-sensitivity
UV ink. With just one lamp/LED module mounted in the delivery, this system
offers high print quality and reliability as well as excellent economic and
The H-UV system has been in worldwide use since it was
released in 2009. In 2011, it was honoured with a technology award by the
Japanese Society of Printing Science and Technology (JSPST) as a technology
that has made an outstanding contribution to the growth of the printing
industry or to the development of applications for other fields. It also
received the 2011 InterTech Technology Award that honours the development of
technologies predicted to have a major impact on the graphic arts and related
In recent years, the H-UV L (LED) version has joined the
lineup, improving printing efficiency by further reducing power consumption and
the maintenance load.
As of January 2019, orders for H-UV system in the 10 years
since launch have totaled 1,002 presses, including 527 in Japan and 475 abroad.
The H-UV system enables immediate postpress processing and
high added value printing on special substrates or package printing thanks to
its instant curing performance. Following the rapid change in the printing
industry in recent years of more short runs of many different items and quick
turnarounds, it has gained high a solid reputation as shown by the many repeat
orders from customers who installed the H-UV system.
Additionally, Komori total support helps maintain high print
quality, reduces common problems and lowers costs since all K-Supply brand
consumables for the H-UV systemare supplied by Komori. It includes the K-Supply
H-UV Ink that is the ideal Komori standard ink.
For quality control, the effect of changes in materials tends
to be temporary. Komori uses its know-how as a press manufacturer to ensure
quality control by not only supplying materials but also through recommending
and providing machine maintenance.
Most of Komori customers have benefited from this technology and
they can save 75% on power on their presses. Komori sees that the HUV
technology is there to stay along with the new HUV L (the LED HUV) presses in
