POSTPRESS by KOMORI

Solutions

During stripping (blanking), do you face any of the challenges below?

As employees age and companies face shortages in workers, the postpress workplace environment is deteriorating.
There is a pressing need to improve workplace environments and reduce the load on operators.
Consider some of the issues described below.

CASE01

Stripping is heavy, physically demanding work, and skill differences lead to discrepancies in productivity
—we'd like to improve this

Then the Apressia MB Series is for you!

The Apressia MB mechanizes the stripping (blanking) process, which is often handled manually, allowing for up to approximately 200 pages to be simultaneously blanked per job.
This automates the repetitive but high-skill task of stripping, saving work and stabilizing productions.

CASE02

With the shortages in postpress workers and increased personnel costs, we'd like to reduce staff and increase efficiency

Then the Apressia MB Series is for you!

If stripping by hand can be carried out at a pace of 1,500 sheets per hour, the Apressia MB can increase productivity by 4 to 8 times.
With the Apressia MB110E (semi-auto), a single operator can handle the work of four employees stripping by hand.
An approximate 4x increase in productivity
With the Apressia MB110H (high-speed, full-auto), a single operator can handle the work of eight employees stripping by hand.
An approximate 8x increase in productivity

*With the Apressia MB110E , a single operator can handle the work of four employees stripping by hand. An approximate 4x increase in productivity

CASE03

We handle a lot of foodstuff, cosmetic and pharmaceutical jobs, and want to avoid touching products as much as possible for sanitary purposes

Then the Apressia MB Series is for you!

The Apressia MB Series minimizes the need to directly touch products, improving sanitation for packages.
It also greatly reduces paper dust, which was an issue with previous hammer and hand stripping.

*Products must still be removed by hand for the Apressia MB110E.

CASE04

Machine operation seems difficult, and creating dies sounds costly.

Then the Apressia MB Series is for you!

One of the main advantages of the Apressia MB is it's easy operation. Operation, from blanking to job switching, can be carried out by a single operator.
The time required for job switching is also minimized through use of cardboard templates, maximizing productivity for everything from short runs to long.
Additionally, the use of cardboard eliminates the need for costly, two-part wood blanking dies, significantly decreasing the cost of blanking. Templates can be reused, further shortening prep time for repeat jobs.

*A separate cutting plotter is required for making templates.

Then the Apressia MB Series is for you! *The template format shown above is for the Apressia MB110E.
CASE05

We're concerned about our ability to correctly strip multiple sides and complicated shapes

Then the Apressia MB Series is for you!

Using top and bottom pins requires leaving minimal gaps. With the Apressia MB, specialized CAD software, compatible with multiple sides and complicated shapes, can be used to simulate pin placement.(Templates can be created with the cutting plotter using simulated data.)
