Ryobi MHI Graphic Technology (RMGT) has launched a new range of offset presses, the 970 series.
Cyber New Zealand supplies the range of RMGT presses locally.
It has based the new range of offset presses, the 970 series, on the technology of its popular 920 series and flagship 10 series press. With the combined technology, the series aims to offer versatility, durability, and innovation.
Bernard Cheong, managing director at Cyber, says, “Ryobi MHI Graphic Technology has further expanded our product range with this launch. In line with its lean manufacturing strategy, the company has studied the needs of our users and to maximise profits by reducing production cost and increasing efficiencies, the new RMGT 970 was introduced.”
Wide range of work
The RMGT 970, an A1-plus size offset press range, handles a maximum sheet size of 650mm by 965mm. The press range targets a wide range of work such as printing of multi-page materials, posters, and packaging.
Features include a benderless plate clamp; feeder and delivery operation touch panel; and other automated functionalities.
Compared to B1-size format presses, the 970 model has significantly lower plate costs and lower power consumption. RMGT says the compact space-saving design results in a more comfortable work environment.
Equipped with a double, double- and single-diameter cylinder perfecting device, convertible perfectors enable perfecting at up to 15,000 sheets per hour. RMGT adds that installing LED-UV curing units at the perfecting and delivery sections makes instant-drying perfecting possible. This eliminates the need to wait before proceeding to post-press processes and satisfying the demand for shorter lead times.
Premiere in Fuchu
RMGT had scheduled the world premiere of two sets of the 970 series for drupa 2020. However, the show’s postponement to April sees RMGT encouraging its distributors and customers to see the range at its Fuchu factory next quarter.
The company says that arrangement might change depending on the situation of the Covid-19 pandemic. It will release further information when it can fix a schedule of demonstration.
