Rolling Meadows, Ill. – Komori America recently completed the installation of a six-color Lithrone G40 (GL640) at TigerPress, a woman-owned commercial and package printing operation based in East Longmeadow, MA. An all Komori facility, the company has made many major investments in 2017, upgrading its workflow and equipment to service its clients better and faster while enhancing its environmental footprint. Komori’s GL640 with H-UV™ was chosen by TigerPress for its advanced technology that brings energy savings, increases sustainability and keeps up with the high-quality and fast turnaround demands of its clients.
“Our entire operation is run on lean manufacturing principles, which means having the ability to create more value for our customers and always looking for ways to increase that value. Investing in Komori’s GL640 is an example of our commitment to continual process improvements that result in a high level of customer satisfaction. We are excited that the technology and versatility of this new press will allow us to meet our customers’ museum quality demands and still meet our efficiency goals,” said Jennifer Shafii, CEO of TigerPress.
With customers that range from large enterprises to high-end retail to healthcare and academia, TigerPress is sensitive to providing both quality and sustainability. The Lithrone G40 features cutting-edge automation, including Komori’s revolutionary KHS-AI intelligent software with self-learning, as well as state-of-the-art press features, including automatic plate changing that minimize set-up time and waste. Offering maximum printing speeds of 16,500 sheets per hour, the press also delivers a stable high-speed operation for producing a wide range of sheet thicknesses from ultrathin to thick sheets, meeting the company’s printing and packaging requirements. The addition of Komori’s proprietary H-UV curing system speeds job cycle times with the ability to deliver a bindery ready sheet, as well as upgrade print quality with value-added coatings, special effects and unique varnishing techniques.
“Providing TigerPress with the capabilities needed to continue to operate a more efficient pressroom is very rewarding,” said Mark Milbourn, vice president of sales for Komori America. “The GL640’s ease of use and robust functionality will not only offer customers the best in print options, it will also make it possible for TigerPress to find new ways to operate more productively at a lower cost.”
