Sakurai 880 SDC Series 8-color Offset Press With Coater
Making its world debut, Sakurai will showcase its first 8-color offset press, a Sakurai 880 series press equipped with a variety of drying systems, including IR and LED-UV for special printing applications. The new, 23 5/8” X 31 1/8” 880 Series 8-color press operates at speeds up to 15,000 sheets per hour.

Sakurai MSDR60 Direct Drive, Roll-to-Roll Cylinder Screen Press
See the new two-color line, which includes unwinding, vertical type hot/UV combination dryer, intermediate unit, delamination & lamination unit and re-winding unit running thinner film substrates.
Sakurai Vertical Type Hot/UV Combination Dryer
This new, high-performance combination dryer will be operating with the MSDR60 press. Printed film is turned in the unit vertically, thus around 30 m film can be stored in the unit even the length of the unit is around 4m.
Sakurai ADS-MS80SD Gripper-less Cylinder Screen Press
Sakurai developed the system last year, and has upgraded it to practical use. An exclusive air suction system transports a sheet on the cylinder, instead of grippers, to minimize gripper margin and the non-printed area of sheet.
CST Digital Light Engraver (DLE Compact)
High-resolution (2500 dpi) computer to screen technology. Eliminates film for imaging screen by means of direct UV light engraving onto stencil.
