Press Release - Komori Introduces the Lithrone GX44RP

Posted Wednesday, January 18, 2017.

The Latest in OffsetOnDemand One-Pass Double-sided Printing Presses Carries on the Brilliant Performance of Komori’s Lithrone G Series

Rolling Meadows, IL, January 16, 2017—Komori Corporation announced today the introduction of its newest addition to the Lithrone G Series, the Lithrone GX44RP offset press. The ultimate in one-pass double-sided printing, the 44-inch Lithrone GX44RP, equipped with H-UV™, is designed to deliver high quality, high productivity and short turnaround stability for double-sided printing, perfect for applications like publication printing (magazines and books) and duplex package printing.

Key features of the new press include single-edge gripping which makes the margin on the tail edge of the sheets unnecessary—enabling paper costs to be cut by minimizing the sheet size—and the use of four double-size transfer cylinders, which eliminates sheet reversal and ensures stable sheet transport for handling either light or heavy stocks through. Additionally, front/back plate imaging is in the same direction, (just as with single-sided presses) increasing efficiency in prepress.

Supported by the KHS-AI integrated control system, benderless Full-APC and the H-UV curing system, the Lithrone GX44RP expands the OffsetOnDemand experience by providing cutting-edge short makeready and powderless instant drying to accommodate fast turnarounds. In addition, options that can be included are the A-APC Asynchronous Automatic Plate Changer, the PDC-SX Spectral Print Density Control SX Model and the PQA-S Print Quality Assessment System to achieve even higher levels of quality and productivity.
