New Lithrone GX40P Perfector Added to Lineup of 40-inch Sheetfed Presses
Komori Corporation (Sumida-ku, Tokyo) has added a new Lithrone GX40P perfector to the lineup of the Lithrone GX40 40-inch sheetfed presses. The following is an outline.
Komori has added a new Lithrone GX40P perfector to the lineup of the Lithrone GX40 40-inch sheetfed presses. The Lithrone GX40, one of the world’s most cutting-edge machine, handles both double-sided one-pass and straight multicolor printing. Now introducing the Lithrone GX40P, with a perfecting mechanism to guarantee high productivity and protability.
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. Simplied and highly rigid, use of the new perfecting mechanism ensures high-speed, stable two-sided printing at speeds of 18,000 sph, displaying excellent heavy stock compatibility with both single- and double-sided printing.
Increase quality and productivity even further 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 and space and reduces exhaust heat.
*Parallel Makeready and Autopilot are concepts advocated by Komori.
