Our competitive edges

UV High-definition Printing – merging of “refined printing skill” and “artistic creativity” at high level –

Combinatorial technology of “UV” and “High-definition” can achieve;

  • High adhesion to non-paper substrate=plastic sheet (PP, PET, PVC…etc.)
  • Speedy production because of no drying (curing) time for UV inks
  • Reduing considerable amount of UV ink usage
  • Fine and thin expression of vivid colored printing

Our “one-of-a-kind” technology of UV High-definition Printing can achieve;

  • Double-dot printing (UV BCMY+UV White+UV BCMY+UVOP varnish.. ”dot on dot” printing technique by smallest 10-micron dots) by UV10-color press
  • Both-side printing (UV5-color+UV5-color+UVgloss/matt coating varnish) by perfecting unit of UV10-color press
  • Utilizing Japan Color concept for UV printing color management even for transparent plastic printing
  • Control UV power by direct measuring of UV lamps to know real intensity and energy of UV curing system

Plastic-made packaging – from industrial design by CAD system to die-cut/gluing by specialized machines –

Leading-edged finishing machines for plastic packages can achieve;

  • Die-cut printed sheets accurately and promptly by utilizing camera which monitors marking points on the sheets
  • Separating products and non-products inside die-cut machine to avoid scratches on printed sheets by hand work
  • Handling variety sizes and shapes of unique plastic packages by finely tuned gluing machines

Assembling for cosmetic products – in-house control from UV printing-Packaging-Assembling at one place –

Qualification acquisition of assembling for cosmetics legislated by the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act can achieve;

  • Complete and total control from UV printing to cosmetic assembling by responsible director qualified by the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act
  • Low cost operation by skilled staff in clean and spacious rooms used exclusively for cosmetic assembling
  • Remote monitoring for assembling work by wearable cameras fixed on the head of our staff in production lines

ISO27001: Establishing Information Security Management System (ISMS) –end-to-end control from printing digital data to printed matters (products and non-products) –

Importance of ISMS is increasing in these latter days from the viewpoints of newly emerging risks by progress of Information and Communication Technology. ISMS now receives widespread attentions since protecting information related assets could be contributing factor for information leakage troubles. So on that point, we believed that establishing ISMS at our production sites and offices to avoid information security related risks is urgent matter, then obtained ISO27001 certification in 2015. We printers should finalize printed matters before those launching, namely should have control system for printed matters (including “wastes=non-products”) not to be shown to the public before arriving in the stores. We re-realize that our significant responsibility to control clients’ important assets and place strict controls on important digital and analog assets.
