Minnesota-Based Daily Printing Replaces Three Competitive Presses with New Eight-Color Komori GL40 Perfector with H-UV™

Press release from the issuing company

Rolling Meadows, Ill. – Komori America announces that Daily Printing, a leading provider of quality printing and marketing services, recently purchased an eight-color Komori Lithrone G40 perfector (GL840P) with H-UV. By consolidating the pressroom and replacing three older competitive presses, Daily Printing will benefit from increased quality, throughput and overall efficiency. Since its inception in 1950, Daily Printing has remained at the forefront of the industry by utilizing the most advanced technology on the market. The company’s recent investment in the Komori GL840P reinforces this commitment and allows Daily Printing to deliver high value printing and a quicker turnaround time to customers.

“We assembled a cross-functional team that chose to review three of the top press manufacturers in the industry. The team unanimously chose Komori. There was so much we loved about this press,” said Tom Moe, president and CEO for Daily Printing. “Komori’s presses certainly offer the innovative technology we wanted, but there was more to our decision than just the features of the press. The Komori team proactively suggested new ways for us to improve margins and increase productivity. With Komori you are not just buying a press, you’re gaining a true business partner. If asked, I would recommend Komori in a heartbeat as they work hard to help you be a better printer.”

The company is taking full advantage of the GL840P’s automatic devices and systems, such as the KHS-AI integrated control system, its full automatic plate-changing system (APC) and the ability for printed items to cure instantly with H-UV. With specialized direct mail as one of the company’s primary offerings, the ability to print on difficult stocks, like uncoated or matte, and to create special effects and embellishments with specialty UV coatings and reticulating varnishes were additional deciding factors in the purchase of the GL840P.

Additionally, Daily Printing invested in Komori’s new cloud-based program, KP-Connect, that gives visibility into the pressroom from any mobile device. Providing press operating detail as well as job detail from an easy-to-access dashboard is helping the company use data analytics to analyze and refine productivity.

“The GL840P is engineered to optimize efficiency,” said Mark Milbourn, vice president of sales for Komori America. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Daily Printing as they explore both the creativity and advanced production capabilities of their new press.”
