Komori U.K. Limited, part of the world-wide Komori Group, manufacture commercial printing machinery used by a number of sectors of industry to print magazines, direct mail, posters, banners and the like.
A number of functions on the small format printing machines are powered by compressed air and so a compressor will always form part of the printing machine package supplied.
Sourcing high quality compressed air is essential to Komori who prides itself on manufacturing superior quality printing machinery.
As part of their quality control procedures Komori regularly review their compressed air suppliers. With an established reputation for quality engineered compressor technology and with the UK head office literally on their doorstep, Russell Gordon, the Contracts Manager at Komori invited BOGE to trial and then tender to become an approved supplier.
On reviewing the compressed air requirements for their print machinery, Dale Cellier, Area Sales Manager at BOGE, recommended the CL 3 screw compressor.
The BOGE CL series provides a small, quiet and low output screw compressor option. A compact design ensures a small footprint - an important consideration in many busy production areas where the compressors are usually installed next to the press.
The CL series is also noted for its very low sound pressure levels. High performance damping and lamellar graphite casting ensure highly effective silencing producing sound levels as low as 59 dB(A), making it ideal in point of use applications such as printing facilities.
Equally important all service components are easily accessible from one point to allow future maintenance work to be carried out in a hassle-free manner.
Russell Gordon commented "We were impressed with the CL series compressor - its compact size and low sound emissions. We were aware of other print machinery already in the field that utilised BOGE compressors so we knew the machines could hold their own in this environment. Additionally, BOGE has a nationwide network of sales and service centres so we were assured that BOGE could deliver service and backup support to our end users. As a result we chose BOGE and the CL 3 units for our smaller format printers."
Eighteen months down the line Russell Gordon concludes "The BOGE CL 3 screw compressors have proven to be the ideal compressor solution for our small format printing machinery. Once BOGE has commissioned the compressor for us we can literally forget about it and to date it really has been the last time we hear about them!"
BOGE supplies the screw compressors for Komori UK Limited's small format printing machinery in the UK.
