Komori has added a new Lithrone GX40P perfector to the lineup of the Lithrone GX40 40-inch sheetfed presses. It is known to be one of the world’s most cutting-edge machines that handles both double-sided one-pass and straight multi-color printing with a perfecting mechanism to guarantee high productivity and portability.

The Lithrone GX40P’s perfecting mechanism utilizes Komori’s unique three double-size cylinder arrangement. The impression cylinder, transfer cylinder and perfecting cylinder are each double-size 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 scans an hour, displaying excellent heavy stock compatibility with both single as well as double printing.

The increase in quality and productivity follows with a variety of options such as Parallel Makeready to drastically shorten makeready times, autopilot for non-stop automation from test printing to production printing and options such as the A-APC (Asynchronous Automatic Plate Changing System), PDC-SX (Spectral Print Density Control – SX model) and PQA-S (inline Print

Quality Assessment System (Sheet)) that makes quality and productivity improvements possible. The Lithrone GX40P reduces work load around the board through environmentally and workplace friendly printing that saves energy, space and reduces exhaust heat.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
