The high performance Lithrone designed for today’s printing environment: the Lithrone G40

Green concept

The Lithrone G40 was developed as a “green”, environmentally friendly printing press

High performance

KHS-AI and H-UV and H-UV L (LED) work in concert to realise OffsetOnDemand – performance at the highest level

High-speed stability

The Lithrone G40 was developed to be a high-performance press that attains both high-productivity and high print quality by means of stable operation

Green innovation

Embodying the world’s premier press production system, Komori’s environmentally responsible Tsukuba plant consistently exceeds the highest expectations of customers.

Now the Tsukuba plant has transformed the Lithrone S40 – the strategic partner of the printing business since its debut in 2002 – into the Lithrone G40.

The “G” of the Lithrone G40 stands for “green”, symbolising Komori’s committment to the environment

The Lithrone G40 combines the innovative technologies from the LSX40 with the award-winning features of the LS40 to deliver a best-in-class machine for today’s printing marketplace.

Designed with Komori’s dedication to precision manufacturing, the G40 ensures high quality print with unsurpassed productivity. 

KHS-AI and H-UV/ H-UV L (LED) in concert realise OffsetOnDemand

The development goals of the Lithrone G40 were high-speed stability, improved print quality, suitability for short-run work, equipment reliability, environmental fitness and improved production efficiency. Equipped with the highly evolved KHS-AI integrated control system, the Lithrone G40 meets the needs for short job cycle time, competence with short runs, capability of producing many different printed products and cost reductions. The press offers a maximum printing speed of 16 500 sheets per hour and delivers very stable, high-speed operation with a user-specified sheet thickness range due to the incorporation of a new feeder and delivery.

1. H-UV / H-UV L (LED)

The Komori H-UV System is an innovative UV curing system that uses a UV lamp developed with Komori 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.

2. Improved delivery

As a result of improvements to the chain track and changes to the air control system, sheet behaviour is stabilised by shape optimisation. The stabilisation of sheet transport results in stable high-speed sheet delivery. 

3. Benderless Full-APC

Not only is the new Full-APC faster than previous systems, a benderless clamp is used, eliminating the need to bend the plates and making plate discharge and feeding more efficient.

4. Automatic cleaning systems

Efficient and automatic cleaning is delivered thanks to an automatic control programme. The quickest automatic blanket washing system in the industry is further enhanced with the use of pre-soaked cloth for blanket washing and impression cylinder cleaning.
