Ryobi MHI Graphic Technology (RMGT) has launched a new 970 series based on the technology of its popular 920 series and flagship 10 series press.
With the combined technology, the series aims to offer versatility, durability, and innovation.
The range will be offered in Oceania through RMGT’s distributor, Cyber.
“Ryobi MHI Graphic Technology has further expanded our product range with this launch. In line with its lean manufacturing strategy, the company has studied the needs of our users and to maximise profits by reducing production cost and increasing efficiencies, the new RMGT 970 was introduced,” Cyber managing director Bernard Cheong told Sprinter.
The RMGT 970 is an A1-plus size offset press range that is capable of handling a maximum sheet size of 650mm by 965mm.
According to the company, the range can perform a wide range of printing work, including printing of multi-page materials, posters, and packaging.
“The 970 series can provide maximum versatility for printing companies. Firstly, the maximum paper size of 970 series is 650 x 965 mm which can be most suitable for several countries,” RMGT said.
“For example, 640 x 900, 650 x 920, and 650 x 950 paper sizes popular in Europe and Australia; the 635 x 965 mm (25 x 38 inches) paper size popular in North America; and the 636 x 939 mm paper size popular in Japan and Korea.”
Some of its other features also include a benderless plate clamp, feeder and delivery operation touch panel, and other automated functionalities.
The world premiere of two sets of the 970 series was initially scheduled to be launched at drupa 20202 but as the show is now postponed to April 2021 following COVID-19, RMGT is encouraging its distributors and customers to see the range at its Fuchu factory next quarter.
“Of course, our arrangement might change depending on the situation of COVID-19 all over the world. Once we have fixed our schedule of demonstration, we will inform everyone accordingly. We look forward to seeing you in near future,” RMGT said.
