Komori America has introduced an 8-colour Lithrone G37P perfector capable of one-pass, double-sided printing. The new Lithrone G37P has a more compact size and can be equipped with a wide range of options – including Komori’s proprietary H-UV or H-UV L (LED) – both of which are extremely efficient curing systems. To further optimize print output, the optional PQA-S Print Quality Assessment System can be added to inspect every sheet for defects and continuously adjust ink keys to maintain consistent colour throughout the run – all at maximum speed. The PQA-S works in conjunction with the PDC-SX Spectral Print Density Control by combining automatic register functions with deep analysis of print characteristics – such as grey balance, dot gains and Delta E – ensuring the highest level of print quality. “Capable of both significant labour savings and high productivity, the Lithrone G37P sets a new standard in 37-inch presses,” said the OEM.
The perfecting mechanism of this new press doesn’t require any gripper change as the sheet is flipped. Instead, the entire gripper mechanism rotates after taking the tail of the sheet from the vacuum cylinder. This design adds stability and reliability when turning the sheet, with a huge reduction in maintenance requirements. The Lithrone G37P delivers high quality output at high production speeds. Additionally, the ability of the press to reduce initial set-up and production costs on materials such as plates, blankets and rollers, supports the Lithrone G37’s ability to generate more profitability, Komori added.
