Komori America announced that Grace Printing purchased a 40-inch, six-color Lithrone GL40 advance press equipped with LED-UV.
“In searching for the new press, we did our homework and found that the Komori GL40 advance press had the capabilities we needed to support our current business, as well as allow us to enter new markets, such as packaging,” said Titus Eapen, CEO at Grace Printing. “Sustainability and the environment are important to us at Grace Printing. LED-UV is simply a more sustainable product than regular UV regarding energy and efficiency. We also learned in talking with other Komori users that we can look forward to shortened makeready time with this new press. That, coupled with the speed of this machine, should increase our efficiency dramatically.”
“There are three basic things we looked for in selecting a new press,” said Eapen. “Efficiency is number one. The reliability Komori is well known for is number two. Number three is economy. We know we will be saving money with the speed, the LED-UV curing aspect and less waste, which is now more important than ever with the paper shortage. Ultimately, they all come back to the enhanced efficiency we are confident the GL640 advance will provide.”
