Ryobi Mitsubishi Graphic Technology Ltd (RMGT) has announced details of its exhibit for the forthcoming Drupa 2016, taking place from May 31 through to June 10.
RMGT will feature its range of printing presses on stand D24 in hall 16 of the Düsseldorf show ground, with an exhibit taking up close to 1,000 sq. meters, under the theme “IRODORI – Colouring the World Together”. The show will introduce the world to the recently combined company’s new RMGT symbol, as well as the latest range of litho and digital production equipment from the company.
Products on show will feature the new external RMGT design for the machines being produced by the combined business, which incorporates the Mitsubishi B1 format presses as well as the A1 and smaller formats for which Ryobi has become well known.
Offset Litho Presses
Leading the way for the offset litho equipment on the stand will be a RMGT 10 B1-format press: a 1,050mm machine in a six-colour configuration, capable of handling stocks from 0.04mm through to 1.00mm. The press is able to produce non-stop printing on heavy weight stocks thanks to a newly developed automatic non-stop feeder and delivery shutter. The machine will be equipped with a chamber coater, and demonstrations will also feature varnish coating using an LED-UV curing unit. A PQS inline printing quality control system will be incorporated for quality management of packaging production.
The RMGT 9 press for SRA-1 size print production will be shown as an eight-colour convertible perfecting press. The press will combine the highly reliable sheet transport system developed on the larger 1,050mm machines combined with software to ensure easy maintenance of the machine. Two LED-UV curing units will be incorporated into this configuration: one situated over the perfecting device and the other at the delivery end of the machine, enabling one-pass instant curing perfecting. The press will also be equipped with Smart-RPC fully automatic simultaneous plate changing, dramatically reducing make-ready times for job changes. PQS inline printing quality control enables the operator to monitor printing quality on both sides of the printed sheet.
RMGT will also exhibit DP7, its next generation high performance B2-format liquid toner digital offset press. Press demonstrations will focus on the advantages of using digital offset to flexibly meet the need for custom print production of shorter run work.
RMGT Drupa Focus
The theme at Drupa for RMGT is based on IRODORI, a Japanese word for colour, but a word that also suggests various additional meanings relating to joy, prosperity and happiness.
Commenting on behalf of RMGT’s European management company, M Partners Ltd, Surrey, Joint Managing Director Murray Lock said: “Japanese is a most delightfully colourful language in its own right. “IRODORI – Colouring the World Together” indicates the strong importance that the company gives to high-quality colour reproduction, but also the life benefits that this focus can bring.”
About M Partners
In 2010 M Partners took on the management of both sales and service for RMGT Litho Presses in the UK and Ireland. This relationship has since grown to encompass responsibility for technical service across the whole of Europe for the now re-named RMGT business. M Partners also manage spare parts storage and distribution for the former Mitsubishi branded machines across Europe.
This representation joins established products such as GUK folding and inserting equipment, primarily focused towards the pharmaceutical packaging sector. More recently the business has expanded into the digital market place following an announcement regarding exclusive distribution of large format printing equipment from Korean manufacturer DGI, and an agreement to re-sell Canon equipment, with a special focus on the unique proofing capabilities of those products.
M Partners offers manufacturers considerable marketing and business expertise across both the printing and packaging sectors and provides high-quality national coverage for sales, support and technical service.
The Joint Managing Directors established M Partners Ltd in 2006 after gaining many years of industry experience in senior management roles at a major press manufacturer and used equipment dealer. They were responsible for corporate and product marketing for pre-press, press, post-press and service, plus operational control for digital, consumables and used equipment divisions.
