Official Comments by the JDP Review Committee High volume printing, reduced waste with its toner-only replacement concept, and refill and consumable replacement done with one hand from the front – the development concepts are clear and packaged rationally in simple designs. The two-tone structure adopting darker colors focuses on functionality by highlighting those elements linked with paper and makes the printers look compact and persuasive overall.

The new gauge detects impacts on a product’s packaging during transportation

Japan, March 2, 2015 – KYOCERA Document Solutions Inc. is pleased to announce that a new style shock gauge developed by the company has won the WorldStar Award in the Electronics category in the WorldStar Competition*¹organized by the World Packaging Organization (WPO). This is the seventh consecutive award and the ninth overall for the company.

The global competition is fought among the winners in a product packaging contest in each country*². The WorldStar Awards are prestigious international prizes given in recognition of excellent quality of packaging evaluated for environmental compatibility, economic efficiency, and originality of packaging materials. The award ceremony will take place during IPACK-IMA 2015, the international trade fair for processing and packaging, to be held in Milan, Italy from May 19–23, 2015.

A shock gauge is widely used in the transportation of precision equipment to ensure delicate handling. A large impact on a package will spread coloring over the gauge, and thus raise awareness of carriers and the quality of transportation. The new-style shock gauge developed by KYOCERA has a larger and more visible colored surface compared with conventional shock gauges. From an environmental standpoint, the new shock gauge uses water-based flexographic ink*³ to color the cardboard. In addition, the gauge employs a simpler structure, enabling easier and more economical production. The company will continue improving the production of stable color for any specified impact, employ the new shock gauge for the transportation of A3 MFPs in the U.S., China and Europe, and expand their usage further.

This single shock gauge detects impacts on two adjacent surfaces.An impact on one side triggers a whole color change on the gauge, producing excellent visibility.

All packaging materials used in the shipment of products developed by the Company are internally developed and designed, winning high reputation at home and abroad for its excellent technology. The Company will further continue its efforts to deliver the printers and MFPs safely to the customers all over the world.

*¹ The competition was held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on November 19, 2014. This year’s competition received a total of 264 entries from 37 countries and awarded 148 applicants after screening

*² The new shock gauge won the Electric Equipment Packaging Award in the Japan Packaging Contest 2014. The Japan Packaging Contest is the nation’s largest competition in the field of packaging. The event is organized and held every year by the Japan Packaging Institute with the aim of promoting development and expansion of high-quality packages and packaging techniques across the country.

*³ Water-based flexographic ink is supposed to contain substantially low volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and thus is environmentally superior compared to conventional ink.
