  • Our very own UV ink provides excellent light fastness and scratch resistance! No more complaints from your customers because promotion pieces show signs of rub off when mailed by post.
  • With KM-1, you gain absolute consistency in paper feeding, registration, image quality and repeatability. Job after job, day after day.
  • This unparalleled stability is ensured by outstanding front-to-back registration accuracy, enabled by a gripper-to-gripper technology.
