Lithrone GX40P Launch Event

Thursday , June 6 ,2019

Komori International (Europe) hosted their official eight-color Lithrone GX40P Launch Event on June 6, as part of the global campaign to highlight this latest addition to the product portfolio. Organized to inform and inspire those who have a specific interest in this perfecting press and its possibilities, the invitationonly event welcomed over 100 selected visitors from the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region.

The newly revealed machine handles both doublesided one-pass and straight multi-color printing perfectly. The eight-color Lithrone GX40P guarantees high productivity and profitability due to its distinctive Komori perfecting mechanism, which uses three double-size cylinders. Printing up to 18,000 sph, even on heavy stock, the press displayed outstanding performance in both single- and double-sided printing modes during live demonstrations.

Visitors were treated to a full web-to-print simulation by the experienced Komori Graphic Center-Europe (KGC-E) team. The high-end per fecting press produced several short runs of double-sided full color jobs with very fast changeovers. During the same live demonstration, the press showed its potential  for catering to the added value market by adding two additional colors whilst printing single-sided. Teamed with the Apressia CTX132 automated cutting system, these solutions can be tailored to specific requirements. As proven this day, Komori is expanding its already rich portfolio of perfecting solutions across the board, with the new Lithrone
GX40P being the first to print high-speed and double-sided. Whether it is digital, sheetfed or web offset, Komori has a long history and the expertise to supply customers with unique solutions.
