Best Deal Graphics and Printing, a leading Toronto-based trade printer, recently purchased a new Komori Lithrone GL-640 with H-UV system from Komcan Incorporated, the Komori press dealer for Canada. “This investment exemplifies Best Deal’s commitment to remain at the forefront of emerging technologies and to continuously expand its innovative and comprehensive offerings that meet the demands of its diverse client base,” said Benson Hong, President and co-owner of Best Deal Graphics. The Komori GL-640 with H-UV will open up new markets and complement the company’s current roster of seven other sheetfed presses. “We’re always looking to serve our customers better and faster,” said Hong. “With technology consistently changing at a fast pace, our company is dedicated to staying at the forefront of innovation. This press will address the constant demand for quicker turnarounds without sacrificing quality, as well as extend our reach into new, unique markets and colour-critical projects.”

The GL-640 is equipped with the Print Density Control-SX Print Quality Assessment system, and Close-Looped colour and registration control – which means colour densities are consistently maintained with virtually every sheet from start to finish. The H-UV system allows for easier high-end colour applications and coatings on challenging stocks of different thicknesses, from ultra-thin stocks to thick boards. Overall, such features would supplement Best Deal’s G7 Certification and strengthen its commitment to the highest standards of quality in the most diverse projects, including luxury catalogues and packaging pieces. Loaded with automation features – including fully automatic plate changers, autowash systems, and Komori’s KHS-AI auto-learning system – the press will reduce preparation time, waste and energy use, while streamlining overall production.

“We’re incredibly proud that Best Deal Graphics and Printing has chosen the Komori,” said Steve Ranson President of Komcan Inc. “Best Deal is committed in investing in new and advanced technologies. We’re confident that the GL-640 Press will elevate Best Deal’s position as a high-end print provider as they discover the full potential of the press and all that it has to offer.” Komcan Inc. is the Komori press dealer for Canada, headquartered in Georgetown, Ontario. The company also offers offering 24-hour parts, service and sales.
