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.
