Corporate profile 2013

  1. 1. Competitive  edge  of  UV  Printing   and  Environment  impact  assessment   provided  by  SHIMIZU  PRINTING  INC. Dr. SHIMIZU Hirokazu President, SHIMIZU PRINTING INC.Visiting Senior Researcher, Waseda Univ. Environmental Research Institute Expert, ISO TC130 WG11 (Environmental impact of graphic technology) 1
  2. 2. Our  FocusUtilize  extraordinary  UV  Printing  technology UV  10-­‐color  +  coating  unit  with  perfector UV  Waterless  Hi-­‐Definition  PrintingUtilize  Environmental  impact  assessment  method Carbon  calculator  “Printing  Goes  Green” Case  studies  to  improve  eco-­‐efficiency   2
  3. 3. UV  10-­‐color  +  coating  unitmanroland  R710  TAPLVSpecially  configured  UV  10-­‐color  press  can  print  5-­‐color/5-­‐color  plus  UV  coating  varnish  with  perfector  on  paper  and  can  print  10-­‐color  straight  on  plastic.  “It  goes  beyond  your  imagination.” 3
  4. 4. UV  10-­‐color  +  coating  unit  (cont’d) manroland  R710  TAPLV   There  are  so  many  printing  patterns  for  paper  (incl.  aluminum   vapor-­‐deposited  paper)  and  plastic  (PP=polypropylene,   PET=polyethylene  terephthalate).  “Imagine,  limitless  possibilities.”Substrate 1 2 3 4 5 Perfector 6 7 8 9 10 Coater PET Bk C M Y W - W Bk C M Y - PP Primer Bk C M Y - S1 S2 W W OP -Aluminum Clear S1 S2 S3 OP - Flip!

  5. 5. UV  Waterless  Hi-­‐DefinitionNo  VOC,  No  time  consuming  process Volatile organic compound (solvent) is not included in UV inks Postpress can be done right after printing thanks to UV inksNo  dampening  solution,  No  water  additives Water repelling inks is not used, silicone is utilized instead Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and other chemicals is not usedLess  ink  usage,  More  detailed  expression Staccato 10-micron dots can reduce ink usage around 20-30% Staccato 10-micron dots can create super “sharpness” 5
  6. 6. UV  Waterless  Hi-­‐Definition  (cont’d)No  adverse  effect  on  water  resource   BOD  of  developing  fluid  is   only  0.8%  of  Conv.  printing g tional printin BOD:  biochemical  oxygen  demand Conven the  amount  of  dissolved  oxygen  needed  by  aerobic  biological   organisms  in  a  body  of  water  to  break  down  organic  material   rinting present  in  a  given  water  sample  at  certain  temperature  over  a   Wat erless p specific  time  period. (Reference: COD  of  developing  fluid  is   only  1.4%  of  Conv.  printing COD:  Chemical  oxygen  demand rinting en tional p Conv COD  test  is  commonly  used  to  indirectly  measure  the  amount  of   organic  compounds  in  water.  Most  applications  of  COD   determine  the  amount  of  organic  pollutants  found  in  surface   rinting Wat erless p water  (e.g.    Lakes  and  rivers)  or  waste  water  making  COD  a   useful  measure  of  water  quality. (Reference: 6
  7. 7. UV  Waterless  Hi-­‐Definition  (cont’d)Advanced  screening  tech.  for  high-­‐end  printing Staccato  10-­‐micron  screen Kodak  Staccato  is  advanced,  second-­‐order  FM  screening  technology.   Staccato  screening  produces  high-­‐fidelity,  continuous  tone  images  that   exhibit  fine  detail  and  an  extended  color  gamut,  creating  a  photographic   experience  free  of  visible  printing  artifacts,  such  as  subject  moire  and   rosettes. (Reference: Products/Color_and_Screening/Staccato_Screening/Staccato%20Brochure %20ENG.pdf) Normal  AM  screen The  angle  and  frequency  of  half  tone  dots  in  conventional  AM  screens  can   cause  subject  moire,  screening  moire  and  unstable  rosette  structures.   Additionally,  fewer  and  larger  minimum  dot  sizes  in  highlights  and   shadows  in  AM  screens  can  result  in  loss  of  detail  and  increase  in   graininess. (Reference: Products/Color_and_Screening/Staccato_Screening/Staccato%20Brochure %20ENG.pdf) 7
  8. 8. Printing  Goes  Green  (PGG)  CLOUDEssential  feature  of   Aims  to  utilize  PGG  as  “Carbon  calculator” Reducing  CO2e  of  manufacturing  process   by  improving  “hot-­‐spots” Squeeze  lead-­‐time  and  change  materials Leading  print-­‐buyers  (consumers)  to   “Low-­‐carbon  lifestyle” CO2e  figure  can  change  people’s  subconscious 8
