MEGA Jprint Series Providing Outstanding Performance for 44-inch Applications

It has been 15 years since Akiyama developed the Jprint Series Press, the world's first single-pass sheet-fed press capable of printing on both sides of the sheet in multiple colors. Since then, the Jprint Series has achieved dramatic improvements in productivity and performance and has many new value-added features including a double-sided coater and Roll Feeder. In 2007 at the IGAS show held in Tokyo, Akiyama introduced the MEGA Jprint 40 series Perfector, a new model which brings together all of Akiyama's experience and expertise into a single machine. In response to many requests for a larger format press, Akiyama then developed the MEGA Jprint 44 series, 44-inch (32-1/4" x 44 1/16") Perfector.
Check out the performance of the MEGA Jprint 44 series - the new standard in 44-inch Perfectors.

Main Features of the MEGA Jprint 44 Series

A maximum printing speed of 15,000 sph. Use a suction-tape feeder to ensure a fast stable paper feeding.   Touch-panel screen allows operation to be controlled easily from the ACC operation stand also.
Paper transferred parallel to the delivery direction to eliminate unwanted paper movement. This ensures stable paper delivery/. A belt-type paper guide is also used to prevent rubbing or scratching.   Inker clutch available as option. This allows the inking drive for unused printing units to be cutout simply using the touch-panel in the delivery section.
Accelerated control of the ink key open-close speeds so that the input values from the Akiyama Color Control (ACC) system are instantly applied to the keys.   Environment-friendly design incorporates energy-saving and heat-resistant features.
An improved air-blower system to better prevent excessive ink emulsification and prevent roller wear.   Full Auto Plate Changer (FAPC) available as an option.
Double cam system used as the gripper opening/closing mechanism for the impression and transfer cylinders.   In-line densitometer or In-line spectrometer available as option.
Roll Feeder (RF) available as a feeder unit option.

Akiyama Exhibits Its MEGA Jprint 5p540DC+RF, eXtreme 540CL and SUPERTECH 440 at IGAS 2007
Akiyama exhibited three of its printing machines, MEGA Jprint 5p540DC+RF, eXtreme 540CL and SUPERTECH 440, at "IGAS 2007" held at Tokyo Big Sight on September 21 through 27. Two of the three presses were new models. IGAS enjoyed great weather, and a total of 130,164 people visited the printing equipment show according to an announcement by the Japan Graphic Arts Suppliers Committee. This time we held demonstrations of the three models to showcase their high added value. By using the high-productivity application with a roll feeder, we showed visitors the kinds of printing that is made possible with presses that support different printing dimensions, overprint (OP) varnishes, and enhanced-color-gamut ink, and other benefits. Our booth was filled with interested visitors, but because the chairs were all taken some people stood as they observed the demonstration with interest.
