Satoshi Mochida, president and chief executive of Komori has announced the opening of the Komori Global Center-Security (KGC-S) security printing technologies facility at the company’s Tsukuba Plant in Japan.
The company describes KGC-S as a state of the art facility where it offers its security printing technologies. Komori has fine-tuned these for more than 65 years. Clients include government agencies, printing companies, and suppliers with interests in banknote and high-security printing. Komori conducts printing demonstrations, training as well as research and development activities at the facility.
According to Komori, the fundamental technologies for banknote printing consist of offset printing, intaglio printing, and numbering printing. It calls these “important security printing technologies, none of which can be eliminated”. Recently, Komori has seen a trend in banknotes for adding security devices to these technologies as a way to prevent counterfeiting. Clients seek high-level counterfeiting prevention, so Komori will further strengthen its fundamental printing technologies.
The company has equipped KGC-S with banknote printing machines and systems that incorporate all aspects of security printing technologies. Komori employs a team of security printing experts, ready to address any challenges faced by customers.
Komori says that 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. It will also enable the delivery of the world’s safest and most trusted banknotes to people around the world, according to Komori.
The company aims to create next-generation security printing technologies and secure the identities of nations, companies, and individuals.
