New Lithrone GX44RP/G44 advance models Added to lineup of Lithrone GX/G advance series
Komori Corporation has announced that new Lithrone GX44RP/G44 advance models have been added to the lineup of Lithrone GX/G advance series sheetfed offset presses.
First announced in August 2020, Lithrone GX/G advance presses built with a concept that provide a world class ROI (Return on Investment) launched in October. Now, advance technology will be extended to two new 44-inch models of the Lithrone lineup.
The Lithrone GX/G advance presses deliver high productivity and print quality with easy 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, thus contributing to productivity improvement throughout the entire printing process. This level of integration is powered by Komori's KP-Connect Pro.
The Lithrone G44 advance models capitalize on a unique format size to offer impressively high production efficiency for the packaging market, while also increasing efficiency, when used in a combination with the Lithrone G40 advance 40-inch press. The 44-inch size is easy to handle and does not require additional manpower since the size is similar to a 40-inch press. It is also extremely well suited for multiple imposition. For this reason it is receiving renewed attention in the package printing market. The Lithrone G44 advance provides higher productivity as a Game Change.
With double-sided one-pass printing built around a stable sheet transport, the Lithrone GX44RP advance also displays impressively high production for either light or heavy stocks.
