Print Quality

The optimized dampening system, the dot quality sharpness and stability is maintained while suitability for high speed/long run printing is improved.


*The press offers a maximum printing speed of 16,500 sheets per hour and delivers very stable high-speed operation with a wide range of sheet thicknesses from ultrathin to thick sheets.

*The Asynchronous Automatic Plate Changer (A-APC) significantly improves working efficiency and greatly reduce preparation time.

*Fusion of the KHS-AI integrated control system and the H-UV/H-UV L (LED) system shortens makeready time, cuts paper waste, and reduces printing time to the utmost while maintaining the high print quality and high productivity that are characteristic of offset printing. Both ultimate short-run competence and short job cycle times are achieved.

*Saves energy and resources, reduces harmful chemical substances such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released during printing, and reduces noise. The Lithrone G40 advance is an environmentally responsible press.

High Productivity and Profitability

The recent tide of rapid changes in the social and economic environment, major changes have been sought in the printing industry. Printing company management faces one of its most critical issues: to what extent can productivity in the printing process be raised.

The Lithrone G advance series delivers high productivity and print quality with ease of operation. Based on the Connected Automation concept, strengthened collaboration and optimization between processes as well as high-level automation with presets based on information from high-end systems are realized, contributing to productivity improvement throughout the entire printing process.
