RISO KAGAKU CORPORATION (TOKYO:6413)(President& CEO: Akira Hayama) has released the GOCCOPRO QS200, as a higher-grade model of the GOCCOPRO series of digital screen makers. The GOCCOPRO QS200 will be launched in countries throughout the world in the spring of 2014. (The release date will vary depending on the region.)

The GOCCOPRO series uses a digital screen making system in which a thermal print head perforates a specialized, heat-sensitive screen master. The GOCCOPRO series was released in 2011 as the first digital screen maker which uses a completely dry screen making method to significantly reduce work processes in screen making. Unlike conventional screen making system, the GOCCOPRO uses absolutely no chemicals, emulsions or water. The new GOCCOPRO QS200 now makes it possible to image an A2 wide size master that is the standard in the wear printing industry. It accommodates frames up to 22.8''×30.7'' (580mm×780mm).
To use the GOCCOPRO QS200, stretch a screen onto a frame and then set it in the machine. An imaged screen is quickly created simply by instructing screen making directly from the PC. Because of the pre-stretched method, alignment is very accurate when you print using multiple screens. Furthermore, by combining a multicolor printer (carousel) for T-shirts printing and a long printing table, the GOCCOPRO QS200 provides an efficient silk-screen printing environment which includes the screen making process.
The GOCCOPRO QS200 broadens the areas screen printing can be applied in. A variety of materials including plastic glass and metal are now easily screen-printed by the GOCCOPRO QS200. Responding to a broad range of customer needs from printing on fabric to printing on prototypes for industrial products and small-lot printing, Riso seeks to increase its market share in the professional screen printing market.
The GOCCOPRO QS200 was displayed as a preview model at the 2013 SGIA Expo held in Orlando (Florida USA), one of the biggest printing industry tradeshows held from October 23rd to 25th. Visitors to RISO's booth highly evaluated the GOCCOPRO QS200 because it would satisfy T-shirt printing requirements such as wider image printing and accurate registration in spite of its very easy operation. Furthermore, the visitors realized that the new revolutionary quick screen making system would get rid of all complicated screen making processes and facilities, and consequently the new system would be more efficient in saving their time and labor.
Starting with ISS Long Beach show, the GOCCOPRO QS200 will be exhibited at upcoming tradeshows around the world in 2014.
Main features of the GOCCOPRO QS200
1) Enables screen making for A2 wide size
Enables screen making for a maximum size of 16.5''×24.4'' (420mm×620mm), which is slightly wider than standard A2 size. This large image area makes the GOCCOPRO QS200 suitable for a broad range of commercial printing jobs.
2) Realizes highly-detailed and highly-precise screen printing
Burns an image at a resolution of 600 dpi. Through expression of fine gradations, images are beautifully reproduced. The screen master is pre-stretched onto the frame. This enables accurate alignment when you print multiple screens.
3) Easy-to-use and requires no special skills
Simply connect the GOCCOPRO QS200 to your computer and send image data to perform direct screen making. There is no need for special skills such as applying emulsion, exposing or washout.
4) Significantly reduces work processes and facilities
Screen making is finished in about 3 minutes (A2 size) after sending the data. Printing can be started quickly, making it possible to shorten the screen master preparation time when compared to outsourced screen making service. Perfect for printing on prototypes and small-lot jobs.
Also significantly reduces facilities and processes when compared to conventional screen printing.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
