Event Report - IGAS 2018
The International Graphic Arts Show (IGAS), a quadrennial event for all sectors of the graphic printing industry,
was held Thursday, July 26 to Tuesday, July 31, 2018, at Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo, Japan.
The NSK booth introduced integrated production workflow solutions focused on paper and cardboard packaging, from layout and design to printing, cutting, blanking, taping, production inspection, and more.
We held UV inkjet printer and fully automatic cutting machine, varnish and foil printer, blanking machine, inspection equipment, and CAD-controllable taping machine demonstrations throughout the week on the show floor.
On this occasion, we introduced the ATL (Automatic Tape Loader) and performed demonstrations of its papersubstrate taping capabilities.
From setting the material on the loader, to taping selected points based on CAD data, to stacking the finished sheets on the stacker, the ATL is a fully automatic taping machine.
Blanking and Inspection Demo with the [MBM] and [NIT500]
We received positive feedback with our demo, using sheets blanked by the MBM to inspect with the NIT-500 inspection machine.
