Komori America announced that Trade Litho has installed a 40-inch, six-color Lithrone G40 advance (GL640 advance) offset press with coater.
“We saw massive labor savings with the intuitive technology of our current Komori press, now 16 years old. I now expect to see massive labor savings again with this new press because it has even more to offer,” said John Lompa, owner, Trade Litho. “The operator-friendly platform reduces touchpoints, saving both time and labor and the advanced control system, along with the other enhanced automated features that make it possible to get to color quickly, also saves on both labor and paper usage. I know we can’t help but meet our goal to reduce production time and increase efficiency.”
The Komori advance series of presses offers a maximum printing speed of 16,500 sheets per hour and delivers stable high-speed operation with a wide range of common commercial print stocks, accepting sheets from ultra-thin to thick. The automated features of the GL640 advance include the fully automatic plate-changing system (APC) that cuts makeready time in half and the KHS-AI integrated control system.
“Trade Litho has always been a great partner to Komori and John’s enthusiasm for what the GL640 advance will offer his business is exciting to us,” said Charlie Lahr, manager of inkjet solutions for Komori America. “We look forward to supporting Trade Litho as it delivers a new standard of excellence for meeting the demands of high-quality printing.”
