Overview Lithrone

The Lithrone series combines state of the art technologies with Komori know-how to create the best possible offset printing presses. The names of all models start with a “G”, which stands for “green” and reflects our stance on the environment. The Lithrone series consists of the G29, G37, G40, and GX40(RP) presses.

1. OffsetOnDemand

OffsetOnDemand is Komori's system to facilitate short runs and quick turnarounds by shortening make-ready time, cutting paper waste and reducing the printing process to the absolute minimum, while maintaining the high print quality and productivity of offset printing.

2. H-UV and H-UV L (LED)

The Komori H-UV System is an innovative UV curing system that uses a UV lamp developed with Komori's know-how and high sensitivity UV ink. With just one lamp mounted in the delivery, this system offers high print quality and reliability, as well as excellent economic and eco-friendly performance.

3. PQA-S Series

The PQA-S Series (Print Quality Assessment System) performs the checking for defective sheets, previously done by regular sampling, and visual checking by the operator, and provides a high level quality control by means of in-line inspection.

4. Fully Automatic Plate Changer

The new Full-APC completes the changing of four plates in just 2 minutes and 30 seconds. The benderless clamping system used by Full-APC requires no pre-bending of the pate tail or plate, making preparations more efficient.

KHS-AI (Advanced Interface)

Shorter changeovers, reduced paper waste and higher productivity, KHS is a productivity enhancement system that facilitates short makereadies by means of quick register adjustment and colour matching.

A further evolution of the system, KHS-AI contributes to shorter changeover times, reduced paper loss and less press downtime by means of a self-learning function that optimizes various preset data as well as air and register preset functions that ensure stable sheet feeding and delivery.
