KM-1 On Display at Print 13

Posted on by Dave Erlandson | 2 Comments »

First shown at drupa in 2012, the KM-1 is a 29” (B2 format) UV inkjet technology demonstration.  The press is designed for the commercial market and offers high image quality output.  The KM-1 is a combined effort from Konica Minolta and Komori.  Konica Minolta is providing the inkjet technology and Komori is enIMG_1918gineering the paper transport system.

Here are some of the key features of the press:

  • 3300 Simplex Sheets per hour
  • 23” x 29.5” sheet size
  • Sheet thickness up to 0.6 mm for single sided printing, and 0.45 mm for double sided
  • Prints on a wide range of offset coated and uncoated papers, including textured stocks
  • 1200 x 1200 dpi
  • 4 colors, UV inks
  • Handles variable data printing

Currently the KM-1 is described as a technology, but the expectation is it will become a product in late 2014. Komori will also distribute the press.  Pricing has not been set yet, but the press is expected to be priced at over $1 million.  Running costs are unknown, but expect Konica Minolta to be aggressive.
