Komori America Corporation and Komcan have announced that The Burke Group (Edmonton, Alberta), a full-service commercial printer also offering a full spectrum of marketing services, has become the first in Canada to sign a letter of intent to purchase the Komori Impremia NS40. The NS40 made its official debut at drupa 2016. “The groundbreaking digital printing system combines the versatility of digital with the quality and speed of offset printing at an unmatched cost per page,” said the OEM. “We’re excited and privileged to be the first company in Canada to integrate the technology of the Komori Impremia NS40 press,” said Ian Burke, owner of The Burke Group. “The combination of Komori reliability and Landa technology is a game changer. Our trust in the support provided by Komcan and Komori, make them the perfect partners for us as we offer this new technology.”
Komcan is the sole authorized agent for Komori printing presses and auxiliary equipment in Eastern Canada, Ontario and Western Canada. The company offers the complete line of Komori solutions, including factory-approved service, OEM parts and consumables. “The Burke Group was one of the first print businesses in Canada to purchase a Komori GL Series Press, and the company is a perfect fit to now have the first Komori Impremia NS40 in Canada,” said Steve Ranson, President of Komcan Inc. “The Burke Group has always been on the forefront of technology, both offset and digital, and has the personnel and expertise to run with this new technology.”
The Landa Nanography technology featured in the Impremia NS40 is built on a Komori platform and uses independently developed water-based inks that bond instantaneously to the substrate while printing at speeds of up to 6,500 sheets per hour.
These proprietary inks and the innovative nanographic printing process result in printed sheets that are abrasion-resistant, require no post-drying and leave no residual ink on the blanket. These features make it possible for the Impremia NS40 to produce offset-quality work with brilliant colour, coupled with reduced turnaround times.
“As a leader in the print industry with over 100 years of experience, The Burke Group has consistently adopted new technology to evolve and grow, and we’re thrilled to continue our partnership,” said Jacki Hudmon, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Komori America. “The Impremia NS40 will further support this company’s deep commitment to its customers to provide the most innovative solutions in print.”
