Komori Adds New Lithrone GX40P Perfector to its Lineup of 40-inch Sheetfed Presses

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

Rolling Meadows, Ill. – Komori Corporation announced today it has added the new Lithrone GX40 perfector (GX40P) to its portfolio of Lithrone 40-inch sheetfed presses. Komori’s Lithrone GX40P is considered to be one of the world's most innovative presses given its ability to handle double-sided, one-pass and straight multicolor printing. The GX40P takes this innovation one step further with Komori’s unique three double-sized cylinder perfecting mechanism that guarantees high productivity and profitability.

The impression cylinder, transfer cylinder and perfecting cylinder are each double-sized to avoid stress on the paper. Simplified and highly rigid, use of the new perfecting mechanism ensures high-speed, stable two-sided printing at speeds of 18,000 sheets per hour (sph) displaying excellent heavy stock compatibility with both single- and double-sided printing. Additionally, the GX40P delivers environmentally- and workplace-friendly printing that saves energy and space and reduces exhaust heat.

Komori’s GX40P offers a variety of options designed to enhance productivity, such as Parallel Makeready* to drastically shorten makeready times and Autopilot*, for non-stop automation from test printing to production printing. The A-APC (Asynchronous Automatic Plate Changing System), PDC-SX (Spectral Print Density Control - SX model) and PQA-S (inline Print Quality Assessment System) can also be added to make additional quality and productivity improvements possible.

*Parallel Makeready and Autopilot are concepts advocated by Komori.
*Parallel Makeready is simultaneous makeready functions.
