Penmor Lithographers New Eight-Color Komori GL40 Perfector with H-UV™ System Impresses Customers

Press release from the issuing company

ROLLING MEADOWS, IL - Komori America announced that family-owned Penmor Lithographers, a provider of high-quality printing services in Maine since 1968, recently installed an eight-color Lithrone G40 perfector with H-UV™ system (GL840P), its third Komori press. Penmor reports that the GL840P is already delivering a 25 percent faster time to market, enhanced color accuracy and significant energy and labor savings.

“We did our research before we purchased the GL840P and were fascinated by what this press could do when coupled with Komori’s H-UV system. Adding H-UV certainly contributes to the print quality and efficiency of the new press, but what is most exciting is that it produces amazingly crisp colors that are getting accolades from our clients,” said Paul Fillion, president of Penmor.

Penmor is also impressed with the GL840P’s innovative automation and environmental efficiencies, which include energy savings and reduced materials waste. Komori’s H-UV innovative curing system adds to the overall pressroom efficiency with inks that are more environmentally friendly and cure instantly, making it possible to go straight from the press to bindery.

“This press allows us to print four colors on both sides in one pass at up to 15,000 sheets per hour, which has made a huge difference in our productivity,” said Glen Fillion, director of operations for Penmor. “Additionally, the H-UV system makes it possible to print on difficult stocks, like uncoated or matte, without worrying about marking and scuffing, and to create special effects with all types of glosses and reticulating varnishes. It opens up a host of new print applications and opportunities.”

Combining the GL840P with Komori’s H-UV creates a system that can truly impress clients with beautiful color and optimized efficiency,” said Jacki Hudmon, senior vice president of sales at Komori America. “We are very pleased that Penmor is experiencing both of these benefits.”
