Mr Akira Urakami, the President of Ryobi Ltd, paid a visit to Apex on March 7th of this year. His visit was to congratulate Apex on their phenomenal success in selling RMGT Ryobi presses with LED-UV to the UK market. The sales include four eight colour SRA1 presses and numerous 4/5 colour SRA1 machines.
Mr Urakami is the son of the original owner of Ryobi Ltd. The company operates as three separate divisions, one dealing in die casting; one producing power tools including garden machinery; and a third producing printing equipment, and now trading as RMGT following the merger with Mitsubishi MHI. Mr Urakami was accompanied by Kohei Yatsumoto, Manager, International Sales and Marketing Department, RMGT.
The centrepiece of this year's IPEX exhibition is the RMGT Ryobi 928P four-over-four perfecting press with LED-UV drying, capable of printing 16-up A4 at up to 13,000 sheets per hour - all dry and ready for immediate finishing!
Apex is also launching new Cron CTP systems at the show including UV and thermal options from B3 to B1.
