Komori Europe hosted its official GLX-840P European launch event on 6 June, as part of the global campaign to highlight this latest addition to the product portfolio. Organised to inform and inspire those who have a specific interest in this perfecting press and its possibilities, the invitation-only event welcomed over 100 selected visitors.
The newly revealed machine handles both double-sided one-pass and straight multicolour printing perfectly. The GLX-840P 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, guests experienced the outstanding performance in both single- and double-sided printing mode.
Visitors were treated to a full web-to-print simulation. The Komori Lithrone GX-840P produced several short runs of double-sided full colour jobs with very fast changeovers. During the same live demonstration, the Komori GX-840P showed also it’s potential to cater for the added value market by adding two additional colours whilst printing single sided. Proven during this day, Komori is expanding its already rich portfolio of perfecting solutions. Whether it is digital, offset or web-fed, Komori has a long history and the expertise to supply customers with unique solutions. With the Apressia CTX 132 automated cutting line participating as well, these solutions can be tailored to specific requirements.
Peter Minis, Komori Europe’s Marketing Manager: “This new Komori GLX-840P press offers perfecting printing in a unique combination with high-speed jobs, which makes it a perfect addition to the press room of a web-to-print business. High volume, less turnover rate and therefore, more productivity. The perfecting-speed combination works beautifully with small(er) demands as well, since the GLX-840P decreases makeready time with every printing job. This press fits in perfectly within the overall Lithrone press range, where the ‘G’ stands for Green. It is manufactured in our production site in Tsukuba, Japan, where every building is filled with solar panels.”
